Do noble things, not dream them all day long.
~ Charles Kingsley (June 12, 1819  January 23, 1875)


The statue of the “Man with 2 hats” celebrates the close connection of Canada and Holland.  It embodies the “Just do it” attitude of Canadians who were instrumental in the liberation of the Netherlands.

A kind word,
a timely gesture,
a small gift,
may not mean the world to you, 
but may be the world to someone else.

Life is hardly more than a fraction of a second.
Such a little time to prepare oneself for eternity!
~ Paul Gauguin (June 7, 1848 – May 9, 1903)


Like a turtle sitting on a log in the Old Ausable Channel.
Sitting in the sun,
feeling the breeze,
drifting in thought,
being deafened by the silence….
Being alone in the quiet forest rejuvenates the soul.

Pinery Provincial Park in June

Kayaking at Pinery Provincial Park is always an adventure.  June is an ideal time to go before schools are out for the summer and the campgrounds are full.  I’m always amazed to see so many turtles sunning themselves on logs in the Old Ausable Channel.

I had lunch on Beach 1.  Lake Huron is still very cold.  The water is high, but there is still a lot of beach to enjoy.
