Many days during the fall season I have gone for short walks. Well at first I just drove with my truck to wherever it took me. Stopped wherever I felt like it.
Not sure if you ever do that?
But it totally feels good, to just go explore the surrounding places. I have come across so many beautiful spots. It’s mind blowing a little how many times I come across wildlife too. That I would not see otherwise.
Just not to long ago I was able to see a fox just so at peace in my present. I have absolutely never seen anything so beautiful. He never even noticed I was there. You can see this fox in one of my pictures below.
Open Your Eyes, See The Beauty Right In Front Of You
This beautiful peaceful place by Jackson’s Point, keeps on puling me to come up and visit over and over again. Not sure what pulls me to it … yet It just gives me that inner feeling of Peace.
At a moment of need in my heart … In early Spring this year. At a quiet place off the main area Just placed on the ground. A red Rose….just like that, I believe it was a gift from Heaven for me to find. As I was about to leave … but something in me said, just go that way and don’t go yet.
Here and there I now too bring a Rose and place it overlooking the Lake Simcoe as I love that view so much. Peace and feeling of freedom. The big world wide open, wherever the water or sky takes One.
I believe someone will love to feel like I did when I did see that rose … I was speechless at that moment…
The grounds of this Church is so tranquil and beautiful…
My Mom and my Girl Fiend have visited my home just past August… I tell You I have been driving to many place with them… They left I am in driving with drawl no since they left.. Smile Reni and Mutt I loved it
( Reni und Mutt mir haet das guet do. Emol us em Dorf choene go und oepis ume nan fahre!)
So we planed to take the Go Train to Toronto… but I said to myself… Lets drive I know where to park wright by Ripply’s Aquarium! Easy… absolutely! Just dont’ go right at 6-8am.
Parking lot was EMPTY!! LOL I thought a car was being towed away so chatted with the guy to make sure I am ok to park here…. ohhh how cool! he was giving me all kinds of tips to make sure I don’t get ever towed….LOL
So up we go to the top of the CN Tower… sooo many decades ago remember there was “Sparkle’s” the dance club… Let’s say 35 years ago .. Ahhhh my club for so many years totally amazing time… Dancing Saturday night Disco time. NOOOO more it now is a platform to walk around and see the big city from the top.. Oh you should have seen the lights at that time 35 year’s ago… totally amazing….
We ended up even at the Distilary Are after the CN tower…an drove up Young Street from Down town Toronto to Richmond Hill … omg 2 1/2 hours later I said I had enough I am going to the HYW…… day to remember.
Beautiful night out with hubby sailing last night. Grassroots Sailing club boat called “Waterbaby” I totally love to open the boat up. Though I was a little nervous more so because it is just the 2 of us on the boat. It does go through my head what if he, the skipper in my case now my hubby gets knocked over board… would I remember how to do the COB … and that single handed? Which I have never done before….so last night I was happy he had the tiller in his hands and I therefore was able to take pictures as I helped with taking and jibbing.. perfect night…to enjoy each others company. ( PS one of the pictures has the boom and sail all worped… lol hand where shaking…haha.)
Lake Simco is wonderful to sail on and has some nice spots to see too. This is just in the Bay of Cooks Bay. Further North you come to Snake Island and Fox Island.
I have sailed all around Fox Island this past summer ( See slide above) on mentoring sail day on a Saturday. It took me (us) 2.5 hours to get from Cooks Bay Marina to Fox Island and that is with a good wind, I believe 12 Knots of wind… I tell you I loved it when the boat was healing over a lot more then the calm moments. What a thrill that was…
Sailing season is almost coming to it’s end…for now….sad.
Beautiful to see them flutter by… I honestly can say I was so happy to see this one flying around in my backyard. Have not seen one for so many years. We usually have the Monarch butterflies in our area.. but seeing this Yellow Tail butterfly made me happy…
I since have seen even a Black Swallowtail. But it zipped along so fast and not resting anywhere on my flowers a picture just was not possible….
Does anyone know if this one belongs to the monarch type Butterflies family?
Hard to believe I have lived in Canada already 35 Years as of today… how time goes by. I remember stepping out of the Toronto Pearson International Airport … The heat was OHHH wow… overtaking my breath… +35 if I remember correctly.
My so called “Family” waiting with there 6 month old baby Jacqueline as well, lol…My name became “Jackie” for the next year. … as her Nanny.
I sometimes wonder what she is up too now?…Woodbridge has changes sooo much! It was all farm field at that time…If you are from Ontario .. Do you remember the Drive-In on Hyw 400?
Now movie Theaters and Malls and totally no farm field anymore….I am speechless at times…
Villa Park Dive ( lol I thought I am coming to life in a Villa…HAHAH was I wrong! ) was my home for less then a year… no so good ending to that family story…
Best times after that was finding a wonderful family in Downsview… So much love they have still for one another…. I am thankful for the Hazel’s they gave me a absolutely wonderful memory. Just wish I had kept in contact more…
However we all have our destinies we need to follow… and never say never. Look into the future it is never to late to reconnect…. and make new memories…..and new friends.
Thanks for being my friends for sooo many memories
