It's a busy time of year!! We were 'down south' for our daughter and her husband's 10th Anniversary this weekend, and in two weeks we'll be much further north to celebrate with our son and his wife, who has taken on a dramatic mid-career change and is graduating as a Veterinary Technician! Around here I'm busy with the garden, trying to hike as much as I can, and get out and do photography. And it's the best time of year to do stewardship and trail development projects along the Bruce Trail - no bugs in the woods yet and still cool.
So we're out there planning some safety fencing and interpretive signage at Webwood Falls, putting up some fencing on another property, and starting to build steps up a long slope for a new side trail. Later, there will be the boardwalk to repair at the wetlands, where the beaver flooded the area and left the boardwalk floating! Sometimes I think retirees volunteering to help in all kinds of ways are the backbone of many services in these local communities.
