HEAVY INBOUND LAKE HURON WAVES (NIKON D40 AT 70mm)
Nice enough this morning to walk the forest trail without a coat. So fortunate to have these bonus weather days. I just hope it holds for another week and a half. Needed a few groceries so threw the cameras in the Jeep and headed for Goderich. Took a drive down around the harbour and noticed a couple large lake freighters in Port. One loading salt and the other loading grains. Took myself for a windy walk out on the pier resulting in me getting a little damp from heavy waves breaking along the pier and throwing spray into the air.

Kelly's Son Jason's wife Kim gave birth to an 8+ pound baby boy named Reeve early this morning. Great timing with most of the family being together in Cambridge right now.

A commenter wondered who took the 'doghouse' photo in Tuesday night's blog. After setting the camera on a wooden box and activating the self timer I had to really scramble to get myself stuffed into that doghouse in time. Reason I'm hanging out so far is simply because I could not get myself stuffed in too far:))

Talked to a long time friend a couple day's ago who said this was likely their last year heading South for the winter. Health insurance costs and ongoing health problems for both him and his wife are bringing an end to an era. We all face the end of our travels some day and I am always saddened to hear of people being forced to face that dark day.
CHOPPY WATERS TODAY (NIKON D40 AT 90mm)
Pheebs and I did a second forest walk with temps in the mid 60’s and a warmth in the afternoon breeze. Still a few yellow and gold Autumn colours overhead casting a golden glow onto the forest floor. Pheebs and I made quite a rustle as we shuffled along through gathering piles of Maple, Poplar, Birch and Beechnut leaves. Well, I was the one doing the shuffling and Pheebs was the one flying around like a rocket ship on steroids.

GROANER'S CORNER:(( "So, your mother says your prayers for you each night? Very commendable. What does she say?" The little boy replied, "Thank Heaven he's in bed!"
