Freshly Washed

All photos taken on August 2, 2022 during our walk in Tucker’s Field and Bunchberry Meadows. Planning for our weekly forest walk was a bit complicated by the forecast, which continually predicted rain and then did not deliver it. The cooler temperatures were what we were looking for and so we set off to seeContinue reading “Freshly Washed”

The “F” Word

All photos taken on August 2, 2022, during our walk in Tucker’s Field and Bunchberry Meadows. August 2 already and it has been decidedly cooler of late. But, not to worry, there is still plenty of summer left, right? Right? Our walk this date shows perhaps the “F” Word is closer than we think. ToContinue reading “The “F” Word”

Range Road Conundrum

All photos taken on our 28 km bike ride on July 30, 2022. Looking to enjoy another country bike ride, before impending rain showers, we set off East of Beaumont on Township Road 505 as usual. At Range Road 234, we turned North instead of South, until we reached Township Road 510. At 510, weContinue reading “Range Road Conundrum”

Wildflower Bouquet

All photos taken on July 26, 2022, during our walk in Bunchberry Meadows. Each time we walk here in late spring and summer, the wildflowers blow us away. Today was no exception. In our two week absence, there was a changing of the guard. Marsh Marigolds were long gone and Common Fleabane flowers were thickContinue reading “Wildflower Bouquet”

I hate to pass the Buck, but I could use a little Doe. Bee still, Little Butterfly!

All photos taken on July 26, 2022 on our Bunchberry Meadows hike. I know I am clutching at straws with my rather lengthy, silly title, but since we switched our walk time to an hour earlier, we have been spotting more wildlife. Hmmmm. Who knew.

a Sunday City Cycle

All photos taken on July 24, 2022. After our recent cycle around Beaumont, we opted top see if we could retrace our route. Turns out, my memory is not what it used to be, but we came reasonably close, despite that, plus added on a few kilometers for a total of about 19.6 km (12Continue reading “a Sunday City Cycle”

Summer Scents

All photos taken on July 16, 2022. As long as I can remember, there have been certain summer scents that can take me back to a place far away and a time long ago. While I have not always lived in the country, some of the scents from my days on the farm still takeContinue reading “Summer Scents”

Sharing the Road

All photos taken on July 15, 2022 during a short cycle around the ponds in our city. A heat wave (for Canadians) has arrived in the area. Temperatures around +30 C (86 F) with a humidex of +35 C (95 F), not a breath of wind and the hot sun beating down did not enticeContinue reading “Sharing the Road”

Walk on the Wild Side

All photos taken on July 11, 2022. This was our 50th walk in Bunchberry since February 18, 2021. How can we walk so often in one place without getting bored? The short answer is 4 distinct seasons and the ability to appreciate the little differences from each walk. Also, maybe we don’t get out much.Continue reading “Walk on the Wild Side”
