Rime Time Hoar Show

All photos taken around my yard on December 2, 2022. A recent bit of snow coupled with high winds and some mysterious humidity created a frosty winter display of hoar frost rime on this morning. The frosty look matches perfectly with the frost temperatures of late – 26C (15 below F) feels like -34C (29Continue reading “Rime Time Hoar Show”

A Few Bumps Along the Road!

All photos taken on October 30, 2022. Not long back from our trip to the West Coast, we knew we were living on borrowed time. This nice fall weather would not last much longer. Due to all the work we had to do when we got home, it took us until today to free upContinue reading “A Few Bumps Along the Road!”

Take a Gander at This

All photos taken on October 6, 2022. We were headed away for a road trip the next day and opted to take a spin around Beaumont on our bikes to see what was shaking, flying, landing, splashing, etc. The Canada Geese are still enjoying their daily routine of fattening up on spilled grain, practicing flyingContinue reading “Take a Gander at This”

Riding the Golden Circle

All photos taken on October 1, 2022, during our 25 km bike ride through the local rural routes.

Our batteries were slightly depletedContinue reading “Riding the Golden Circle”

Golden Time – The Gathering

All photos taken on September 26, 2022. If the weather throughout September has been nothing less than startling, then, the last week has been magnificent. Cool mornings but no frost and days warming slowly to record temperatures for this part of the world. We have been outdoors as much as possible, on foot, on bike,Continue reading “Golden Time – The Gathering”

Autumn’s Flying By

Photos taken on September 23 and 24, 2022. I know autumn only started at 7:03 PM on September 22, 2022, but it seems to be flying by, as strong autumn winds sweep colour leaves from the trees and keep the Canada Geese grounded. It has not been a real treat for our bike riding adventuresContinue reading “Autumn’s Flying By”

Sittin’ Doin’ Nothin’

All photos taken on September 1, 2022. Most people tend to feel guilty if they are simply sittin’ doin’ nothin’, but after almost 8 years of retirement for me and almost 5 for Patty, we have come to terms with this strange phenomenon. We have also answered the question, “If you are retired, does itContinue reading “Sittin’ Doin’ Nothin’”

Making the Rounds

All photos taken on August 21, 2022. We alternate between rural and city rides, depending on the day and time we have. This day was an in town ride and with a few zigs and zags, we managed to pedal 25 km. (15 1/2 miles) in about 90 minutes. And in the time and space,Continue reading “Making the Rounds”
