Another mighty fine morning here on Ontario's west coast. Nice walk in the Hullett Marsh followed by another walk in the Bannockburn Conservation area about an hour later. A few photos along the way and we were home before 11. Managed to get a utility trailer load of yard waste to our recycle area before retreating into the house for a short snooze in front of my big cooling fan.
ONE OF TWO OLD IRON BRIDGES IN THE MARSH WHERE COUNTRY ROADS ONCE RAN THROUGH
EVEN THE SHADOW COWBOY WAS SPOTTED THIS MORNING
YEP THAT’S THE PHEEBS WAY UP THERE AHEAD ON RIDGE
TOPS OF THE DYKES ARE MOWED FOR EASY WALKING
One of the many nice things about our area is the abundance of rural roads taking a driver through the widespread scenic and diverse countryside. Readers would be surprised at how many of my daily photos are taken right from the driver’s seat of the Jeep.

Kelly, in Goderich running some errands this morning came home with a new haircut which looks great on her. It was a spur of the moment decision after seeing a sign at a downtown hairdressing shop saying ‘Walk In - Welcome’.
Well here we are at the end of another month and amazingly enough we are almost into July already. While walking in the Marsh this morning it felt like late August with cooler temperatures and a heavy due on the grass. Mid to late August always marks the early beginnings of my favorite time of year and this morning I reveled in that thought as I shuffled along through a patch of tall wet grass.

NICE BOARDWALKS THROUGH THE SWAMPY WETLANDS
SPIDER WEBS IN THE FOREST
I THINK DOGGY IS NEEDING A DRINK OF WATER
Funny how after deciding to spruce up our place and not bother looking at other properties and houses for sale we still seem to get ourselves all excited whenever Kelly spots something on the Real Estate sites or I happen to see a ‘For Sale’ sign on a country property somewhere. We both know that if a sure-fire opportunity presented itself on a quiet little country setting close to town right here in our own area we would still probably go for it………………….
UPON RETURNING TO THE JEEP WE FOUND WE HAD ANOTHER HITCH-HIKER TODAY
