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
