Wheelchair rides in February!

It was last week now, but I still can't believe I was out riding around town in early February!  We had a full week of sunny days after that Saturday afternoon drive, with the temperature gradually rising to an unheard of 12 degrees!  It was actually warm!!  So here are a few pictures I took on one of my rides last week, my usual shorter ride, just to give you an idea.  Don't look at the houses; look at the sky!

Leaving home.

Let's start at the far end, 7 blocks away, just as I turn around to head home.

Then it's past the low one-story local hospital.  It may be small, but it's a godsend for local residents. That first tree on the right is where the squirrel was hiding in one of my fall pictures.

Ahead of us the street bends sharply left rather than continuing down the slope of another glacial shoreline, the ancient Nipissing shore.  You can follow it all the way through Meaford.  The tree on the left is another favourite for fall colour.

Another block and I turn back onto our own street.  For some reason it's like a wind tunnel on the prairies.  While there may be a gentle breeze on other streets, here it hits you as soon as you turn the corner!


  1. Lovely trip thank you...and I've stayed warm whilst admiring the view!

  2. Oh how nice that you had such a nice day that you could take a little trip around outside.
    Sorry you're having trouble leaving comments on my blog. At least I got the last one. Thanks for reading.

  3. The sky views are beautiful. It's so nice you were able to get out for a ride this early.

  4. Beautiful blue sky. Glad you could get out while it was so nice -- spring's coming.

  5. Incredible weather for early February!

  6. Such wonderful blue skies.
    So pleased you have been able to get out and enjoy some good weather.

    All the best Jan

  7. Yes, absolutely gorgeous skies and weather! Glad to hear you took full advantage.

  8. I hope you had layers of winter coats on as it still looked cold. The wind comes blowing down the plain does make it chilling. Great shots.
