INUKSHUKS…..ARE THEY ‘INUKS’ OR ARE THEY ‘SHUKS’ & A PLEASANT MORNING DRIVE THROUGH AMISH COUNTRY

STOOKS OF WHEAT ON AN AMISH FARM

Didn't take long for Pheebs & I to head out the door & get ourselves on the road this morning.  After 4 cloudy rain soaked days behind us another one ahead of us on Saturday we knew today was our only chance to get out & get us some good old back road country road dust on ourselves.

PHOTOGRAPHERS OFTEN KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR THE CLASSIC ‘S’ CURVE IN A PHOTOGRAPH & OFTEN IT IS A ROAD WANDERING IN ONE SIDE OF A PHOTO & OUT ANOTHER SIDE…..THERE IS  AN ‘S’ CURVE IN THIS PHOTO BUT IT’S NOT THE ROAD…..CAN YOU FIND IT:))

Our usual swing through Tim Hortons this time in Goderich, a drive down around the harbor area with a walk at the end of the beach road for Pheebs.  Again surprised at how fast those shoreline Inukshuks are growing & there seems to be some talk of those stone structures being a liability & may have to be taken down.  Someone questioned about them being called Inukshuks in the first place.  Maybe they are just ‘Inuks’ or just plain ‘Shuks’.

HANDSOME LITTLE DEVILS I’D SAY

Wandered through Amish/Mennonite territory enjoying all there is to always see up there in that neck of the woods.  A stop near Dungannon for Pheebs to see her Alpaca Pals but there seems to be only a few left.  The property is for sale & I think all the animals are probably being sold off.  After a stop at Lake Wawanosh for a leg stretch we pointed Libby's nose south arriving back home about four & a half hours after we had left.  Just an overall relaxing morning spent doing things I like to do in an area I like to do them in.

Not a whole lot more to write about tonight so rather than sit here staring blankly out the sunroom window trying to think of something I'll cut this post loose & let it go........................:))

GROANER'S CORNER:(( After a long day out, my Mother and I stopped at our local grocery store on the way home. I ran in to pick up just a few things, leaving her in the car.
As I approached the checkout, I was surprised to find her standing there, waiting for me.
"Mom," I said, "what are you doing here? I left the motor running."
"I know, dear," Mom replied, "and it's all right. I locked the doors."

  1. Gotta love his area of southern Ontario. But we got lucky had no rain where we were at.

  2. I had to read through your whole post and then go back to find the S curve. Dang, it's right there and I don't know how I missed it the first time.

  5. We were so impressed with the order and cleanliness of the Amish farms when we saw them down in Pennsylvania. These people are working really hard and it shows.
