Our first family camping trip was to Bruce Peninsula National Park where we hiked to the grotto with our 8 month year old son. It was a beautiful evening so the grotto was filled with many people, some of which braved the freezing cold waters, others took photos and all stood back and took in the crystal clear waters and beautiful rockface the grotto has to offer.
This past week we visited Tobermory and while we were there we took a boat to Flowerpot Island. Flowerpot Island is an island in Georgian Bay, part of Fathom Five National Marine Park. Here are a few photos from our hike around the island.
Vincent’s first trip to the beach was a success, he loved the sand between his fingers and kept pulling us to walk towards the water. What a joy to see him experiencing the wonders of nature for the first time. Here are a few photos from our outing to Wainfleet’s Long Beach.
Yesterday we spent a few hours helping out at the Boyter Family Farm in Fonthill to learn about the process of cultivating mushrooms by working hand in hand with them. Here are a few photos from the first stage of cultivating shiitake mushrooms with a brief description below each as well as a link with more in depth information if you’re interested.
Mid spring flowers in our backyard garden. A lilly, lilacs, violets and columbine flowers. all except the lilac started from seed or bulb last year or the year before.
A few photos from our hike around Malcomson Eco-Park. One of the unique aspects of this park is it’s many upcycled bird houses found in it’s tress as you walk around the park.
