A couple of weeks ago we went to the annual celebration for the local group that supports the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, held on a big dairy farm a few miles away. There was a great collections of antique (or at least older) tractors, and demonstrations of a robotic milking system.

After a heavy rain I sometimes head for the garden to try and get pictures of water droplets. These are a few of my attempts from two weeks ago.

We frequently see Gulls sitting spread out across farm fields, in large widely spaced flocks. We rarely see, though we regularly hear, Ruffed Grouse.

I was shocked this morning to drag myself out of bed just before 7 and discover the sun had not risen! Then I was even more shocked when a few minutes later it did rise, but far to the south of where I had seen it last time (I'm not very good at seeing sunrises during mid-summer when they occur so early). It told me loud and clear that fall is on its way!

One more post about our paddle around the marsh at the south end of Lake Eugenia. Besides following the Beaver River upstream a little, I wanted to see if we could find the entrance to the Little Beaver River, and a narrow channel that supposedly connected two parts of the marsh.

This has become exploring the creek rather than paddling the marsh, but we did reach the point where we were blocked by fallen logs. My buddy was desperate to explore the water beyond, but we decided it didn't look promising.
