The S.S. Sunrise

This photo was taken this past spring on Vancouver Island. Each morning we got up early to catch the morning light. This day we were blessed with a beautiful sunrise!

Almonte Falls – Mississippi River

We took a road trip to eastern Ontario last weekend and stopped in Almonte on the Mississippi River. I didn’t realize Ontario had a Mississippi River! The falls were beautiful as was the town. More info about the town can be found here. About Almonte


Roxy Theater Owen Sound Props

The Historic Roxy Theater in Owen Sound is the home of The Owen Sound Little Theater.
Every year from May to October, communities across the province open the doors to hundreds of historical buildings, places of worship, museums, private homes, industrial areas, green buildings, heritage gardens and other interesting venues – some of which are rarely accessible to the public. Many of the participating sites offer special activities, such as tours, exhibitions and demonstrations – all free of charge!
The theater was part of Doors Open Ontario in Owen Sound.  Check out the Doors Open web site for more info.

This was taken at Point Pelee National Park on the Marsh Boardwalk trail. It is a short 1 kilometre (0.6 mile) walk along a floating boardwalk through the marshlands. It is a great little hike to observe marsh habitat.

This is St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in Lindsay Ontario. I love the architecture of these old churches.


Limehouse Stone Arch

Limehouse Stone Arch

This was taken in Limehouse Ontario at the Limehouse Conservation Area where you can find the ruins of a lime mine and kilns. They were used in the early production of natural cement (gypsum).

There was a lot of debris upstream. Probably as a result of the ice storm last winter. Even though the view was not as clear upstream as I’ve seen in other shots online, it is still an interesting place to visit.
