Self portrait... something I am often doing a lot... driving my car!
I would say from about March through November I spend a lot of time in my car! I travel around Eastern Ontario visiting friends, enjoying life, and stitching! My poor car is basic, but its a tank! I've actually got over 280,000 KM's on my poor 2002 Accent. I imagine either by the end of this year or early next year I'll break the 300,000 mark which is quite a bit for a car. I currently hold the family record for most KMs on a car LOL!
I was mesmerized by how the back of this truck was reflecting the lines/road behind it
Tuesday afternoon I hopped back in the car after just returning home from Quebec City Monday evening. Of course it was a little easier to hop back in the car since I hadn't done any of the driving to and from Quebec City. I hit the road for the three hour drive to Bonnie's where we'd be getting back in the car the next morning for our trip to Canada's Wonderland. Sadly I don't have any pictures for you from that day, I really didn't want to carry around a bag or anything to get lost/stolen/wet. Which is such a shame because I would of loved to have gotten a picture of us eating the massive chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches we had that afternoon. They were ridiculous and we both ate a whole one! (do a google image search for Canada's Wonderland Cookiewich and you'll see what I mean!) For a Wednesday it was a busy day and the wait time for most rides was on average an hour! I think we got more rides done from 10am-12pm than we did between 12-5pm.
Once I got tired of waiting in line for a quick thrill on a ride, I suggested we hit the road and head up to Sheila's who lives just outside of Honey Harbour on the fantastically gorgeous Georgian Bay. Sheila hosts one of our stitching weekends in June and this time just Bonnie and I went up for a visit until Friday afternoon and of course some well deserved stitching since not much got done while we were in Quebec City.
Sheila & Jim's home on Georgian Bay
I'm going to leave you with some shots of Georgian Bay from the back of Sheila & Jim's boat to give you a glimpse of one of Ontario's scenic areas.
An Inukshuk in the distance. I find if you look around when you're out on lakes or driving the highways you can find these little hand-made stone statutes everywhere
Wednesday night this Mama and her 4 babies visited Sheila's compost pile
Ducks cruising the lake
When I see large boat houses like this all I see is $$$$
What a great boat's name!!
Just a nice shot (in my opinion)
Nature at its best!
More wonderful work by Mother Nature
Tiny cottage on a tiny island!
You can dock your boat and get everything you need!
After cruising the lake we had a fantastic dinner here!
