I know my strong points:
I work hard,
I have talent,
and I’m a good person.

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.

My grandson and I spent a wonderful day kayaking. We did my normal route backwards to ensure he saw my favorite spot at the turnaround point of my normal route. Muddy entry with a dock too high for easy entry and exit. He started out with the paddles upside down. Then remembered on his own: writing towards you so you can read it and he turned them around. This picture was before he remembered.
I hope everyone is enjoying their last Monday of summer holidays. Tuesday the teachers will be in school preparing for Wednesday and the students returning.

The unofficial last Sunday of the summer. Although technically summer doesn’t end until September 21st, the return to school signals the beginning of Fall.
This week is already looking to be busy. Wednesday I’m going to make a trip to Point Pelee National Park to see if the Monarch Migration has started. My sister and I will be taking the kayaks to journey through the marshes. The trip itself is a 2 1/2 hour drive, so it will be a full day trip.
Thursday, another sister and I are going to Port Stanley for live theatre to jointly celebrate our birthdays. Lunch out and theatre, such a treat.
I have volunteered to take pictures at the 150th Anniversary of the Strathroy-Caradoc Horticultural Breakfast, Saturday September 24th. The same day is the Annual Meeting of the Heritage Club, so supper out with Posties that worked at Canada Post for 25 years or more. Another fully booked day. 🙂
Life all comes down to a few moments.
