For the most part, we had clear dry roads this morning and any day without a snowy ice-packed slippery surface is a bonus. A pinkish-orange thin line across the eastern horizon at sunrise showed promise for a nice morning but the day gradually clouded over and we were back to dull and gray.
|WE HAD SOME MELTING GOING ON TODAY|LAST WEEK THERE WAS STILL A TSC SIGN UP THERE
Our usual coffee to go at McD's and down to Goderich's south harbor we went. Work has resumed on the boardwalk and a couple large machines were busy along the shoreline positioning large boulders into place. A quick stop at the dog walking area but with an icy wind blowing we didn't stay long.
SOME CHRISTMAS TREES ARE NOT AS EASY TO GET HOME AS OTHERS
|ONE OF THE TWO DISTANT FREIGHTERS HAS COME AROUND AND APPEARS TO BE INBOUND|
|THE FISHING BOAT MAKES IT TO THE HARBORS CALMER WATERS|

|THIS IS THE MACHINE THAT PICKS UP THE BIG BOULDERS AND PUTS THEM WHERE IT WANTS THEM|
|I THINK THIS TUGBOAT MAY SOON BE HEADING OUT TO ASSIST THAT BIG FREIGHTER POSSIBLY ON ITS WAY IN|
|A SECOND FISHING BOAT PULLS IN WITH AN EARLY MORNING CATCH|
|FISH WILL BE OFFLOADED INTO THOSE COLORED BINS|
|I'M THINKING THIS MAY BE A FEMALE DOWNIE WOODPECKER|
