Pheebs and I did get out again this morning and tonight’s post is a composite collection of both Saturday and Sunday morning photos. First Saturday morning then Sunday.
PORT ALBERT NORTH OF GODEREICH HAS A SMALL BEACH WITH PHOTO ABOVE LOOKING SOUTH TOWARDS GODERICH AND PHOTO BELOW LOOKING NORTH TOWARDS KINKARDINE
I HAVE NEVER SEEN SO MUCH DRIFTWOOD ON PORT ALBERT’S BEACH BEFORE
THE NINE MILE RIVER FLOWS INTO LAKE HURON HERE & IS A POPULAR FISHING SPOT AND ESPECIALLY IN THE SPRING WHEN THE SMELT FISH ARE RUNNING
STEELHEAD TROUT AND SALMON SWIM UP THE 9 MILE RIVER TRYING TO JUMP THAT DAM UPSTREAM BUT IT IS THE FISH LADDER BELOW WHICH HELPS THEM BY-PASS THE DAM ON THEIR JOURNEY…. PORT ALBERT FISHWAY
FISH ENTER LADDER FROM THE RIVER AT BOTTOM RIGHT AND MAKE THEIR WAY UPWARDS THROUGH A SERIES OF WATER CHANNELS AND JUMPS
HERE’S THE BOYS DOING SOME SATURDAY MORNING FISHING IN THE NINE MILE RIVER JUST ABOVE THE DAM
THIS GENERAL STORE ‘IS’ DOWNTOWN PORT ALBERT AND THAT’S IT
Monday morning Kelly drives our good friend and neighbor Monica to Grand Bend for some physiotherapy on a recent knee replacement and 2 old buddies of mine from my old home town of Tavistock pick me up for a tour of Bayfield and surrounding area.
DID YOU SPOT IT??
THESE SHEEP HAVE A FAITHFUL GUARDIAN WITH THEM
THIS FELLOW BARKED NON-STOP AT PHEEBS AND I WHILE STOPPED FOR A MINUTE ALONGSIDE THE ROAD FOR THESE FEW PHOTOS
A SECOND SHEEP DOG IS OFTEN HERE AS WELL BUT WE DIDN’T SEE IT TODAY
WHEN PHEEBS AND I MOVED FORWARD ABOUT 30 FEET TO GET A PHOTO OF THESE TWO THIS SHEEP DOG QUICKLY RAN RIGHT OVER TO GET BETWEEN US AND THAT MOTHER WITH HER BABY
I’M SURE HAD I TRIED TO GET ANY CLOSER THAT LOYAL PROTECTIVE SHEEP DOG WOULD HAVE SMASHED ME UP PRETTY GOOD….ALWAYS GOOD TO HAVE A LONG TELEPHOTO LENS HANDY
Lake effect storm cells upon us tonight with our power being knocked out just long enough for me to re-set all the clocks and timers yet again!!
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A serious drunk walked into a bar and, after staring for some time at the only woman seated at the bar, walked over to her and kissed her. She jumped up and slapped him silly. He immediately apologized and explained, "I'm sorry. I thought you were my wife. You look exactly like her." "Why you worthless, insufferable, wretched, no good drunk!" she screamed. "Funny," he muttered, "you even sound exactly like her too!!."
Q: Why did the dinosaur cross the road?
A: Chickens didn't exist yet.
