First 3 Falls

It's a good idea to see falls after we had lots of rain
first we hiked a part of the Bruce trail that was re-routed

a very popular part of the trail is closed now
 due to private owner closing it

This Hermitage Cascade left side is privately owned too

The plan was to have a longer stop at the first waterfall 
it took a while to get there

so we had a short break 

lots of "forget-me not" blooming

this used to be the trail, very pretty

Canterbury Falls, now a side trail
Marian is taking a picture of me

this one

these falls had a well placed bench so we enjoyed 
a lunch break

The old mill has falls at their property

a very nice place to sit outside with a beverage, maybe next time

we also appreciated some smaller falls

Days For Girls

a kit

containing underwear and reusable pads
8 thin squares folded in 4 so it doesn't leak
but thin enough it dries in a reasonable time

so girls in third world countries don't have to miss school
2 of our group shared their enthusiasm 

One is a wiz with a sewing machine

she made over 2200 inserts already
the reusable pads

Hiking in Mulmur

Past Prime

Henriette was cold it was 6C in the morning
later 12C, Agatha and I were not cold

Lots of water in this area

and views 

2 streams beside each other
the water was loud

Power House

climbing in to get a closer look

rusty pipes

an old schoolhouse or church

this section had a bit of road
we met a lady who told us that it was busy on the road 
and we better watch out
we met 2 cars, and that was it

as far as the eye can see 

interesting placement of a picnic table

This road was totally washed out

a valley filled with horses

Planting Corn

the corn planter arrives

the seed was already on the truck

filling her up

 Always careful to grab the threat from the bags
 so it doesn't get stuck in the planter

adjust the planter

Marc leaves to spread manure

filling up with fertilizer

starting the first round

checking the seed depth
