Winter stayed a very long time this year…this post covers from mid April to mid may
The trailer was still covered in snow…and looking sad. We missed it and visited it a few times.
Even the Chi-Cheemaun was covered in snow and unable to leave the frozen harbour to turn around.
I cooked as the Armenian Red Robe guy with the big hair…this is Irish Soda Bread.
This is hand made tortillas for fish tacos.
Linda is making the most of things with snow angels … it was hard to take a selfie with both of us laying in the snow.
This was the Devil’s Golf Course in Death Valley…
This is the frozen sound…surprisingly the Death Valley salt formations and the ice looked similar.
Owen Sound used to have big industry and this is the CN train station that is now the visitor centre. In the centre of the photo is a great big wooden ship’s propeller.
Both us us ran in this winter wonderland.
We took drives…this is the Women’s Institute Tea set…just south of Kemble.
I cooked more…Boureks…
Tahini Bread…and this is why we run…so we can eat it all.
The weather warmed and the river rose.
As the weather warmed up the Chi-Cheemaun was able to turn around and prepare for the sunset cruise as well as service up to Tobermory.
We hiked to Inglis Falls.
It warmed up enough to go out without jackets.
The geese started to get together…
A good friend invited us to see the rehearsal for Candide at Roy Thompson hall with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra – such a fun and frivolous pursuit of happiness.
Back in Owen Sound…the packing continued…we thought we’d move some of the more fragile things to our new town – Carleton Place. So we drove out.
Parking at a friend’s place to pick up some things…the trailer felt great to have attached again.
Parked in front of Jim and Eleasa’s place with spring flowers.
A selfie from a night out.
They are such wonderful people…Linda is sitting in a drag racer checking it out.
The Mississippi River through Carleton Place is overflowing its banks..the docks at the CP Canoe Club has their docks out to prevent them from damage.
We found a great Mexican restaurant in Carleton Place – Cabano Kitchen and we had a delicious lunch.
The Mississippi river – a tributary of the Ottawa river rages past the Almont hydro station.
Continuing our journey we drove along the shores of Lake Ontario…all the way to the Glenora Ferry!
