Another Drive - On A Sunny Day

Last Saturday was a rare sunny day at this time of year, so we headed out for a drive.  We drove to Thornbury first, down into the harbour and looked around.  Then south through Clarksburg and out across the countryside.  Very different from our summer drives here, but beautiful nonetheless.

Heading down to Thornbury's harbour we crossed the old railway, now the heavily used Georgian Trail.

Not much ice build-up at the mouth of the Beaver River here; it's been a relatively mild January.

But a few dedicated fishermen were out.  I think these work jackets must cut the wind well.

The boulders along the shore are piled so high I can scarcely see the water!

Here's a nice boat for you to buy, the 'Charlie'.

The ski slopes at The Peaks, like all the others, are ready but closed during our current province-wide lockdown.

And the docks are all empty.

Tomorrow, big old homes in Thornbury and apple orchards in Clarksburg.

  3. The "Charlie" looks like a nice boat, bet it comes with a nice price. The old saying "A boat is a hole in the water into which you pour money" seems apt.
