The count down is on. 3 days ’til we start the journey home.
Yesterday I packed up my art supplies and cleaned the “Spare room”. Harold took his tricycle apart and we packed the first 1/3 of the truck box. The little refrigerator is clean and taken to our friends’ shed for storage. So is my bicycle. The afternoon was spent in the pool because it was too hot to do anything else.
Today the dogs go to the groomer. Rickie will get the whole works and Patsy will have her nails done.
This morning is the last day I go to TOPS in Florida. I’ve managed to not gain 5 lbs during my stay in Florida.
I’ve been exercising 4 days a week and feel better than I have in recent memory. Now to continue the work on my abs when I get home.
The thing generally raised on city land is taxes.

Happy Birthday to my first Grandson, turning 11 today going on 40. Enjoy all the adventures life has to give you. ❤
While we were kayaking on the Old Ausable Channel the Cormorant in todays pictures swam beside my grandson and then climbed onto this branch to pose for us.
In the summer of 2020 the Ontario Government introduced hunting seasons for the Cormorants. Not based on science or the preservation of birds in Ontario, but because of a general fear that cormorants fish. I’m not against hunting for food but this is just killing for sport. Contact your local MPP and demand they stop this slaughter. There is no scientific proof that Cormorants are dangerous to the environment and no justification for the daily numbers of kill permitted.

Daily affirmations should include the same ones as Pink.
Yesterday’s adventure was a trip to Point Pelee National Park, Leamington Ontario with my sister and my kayaks. The launch there is beautiful, easy to access and easy to use. You can do a short 1 hour kayak along the boardwalk or branch out into the adjoining “lakes”. But be careful, once you get out into one of the smaller lakes, everything can start to look the same with tall reeds all around you. We had a small panic moment, but found our way out and back to the boardwalk for lunch after an almost 4 hour kayak.
Our adventure started with a guided tour along the boardwalk by a beautiful pair of Mute Swans. In the larger Lake Pond we were shown their 4 babies, now adolescents.
The kayaking was wonderful so we thought we would go on the tram to the point. However, we didn’t bring long pants and the flies were biting, so we cut the trip short.
