Sunny January Morning at the Arrow Lake

The lake level is dropping to make room for the annual spring run-off. This means that a strip of shoreline was without snow. My wife and I took this as an invitation for a walk on the stony beach section at our favourite place, which never fails to charge up our internal batteries. A strong wind earlier in the morning had whipped up considerable surf action.  I captured the waves by lying on my belly very much to the amusement to my wife. Enjoy.

A Visit with our Canada Geese in December

Even though we had our first snow our friends, the Canada Geese, decided to stay a little longer to enjoy the green grass still growing abundantly on our golf course at the lakeshore. I captured them in the air, on the ground and on the water. Calm conditions and brilliant sunshine made our walk down to the Fauquier boat dock a memorable event. Enjoy!

May the New Year bring Peace and Good Will to our Planet. Best wishes to all my blogging friends far and near! I have been taking a break to spend more time with family and friends during the Chrismas Season. My apologies to all who have been expecting comments. I did read all your posts and viewed the photos and acknowleded them with a quick ‘like’, but that was all I could do. Next week I will carry on my blog activites continuing  with Albert Scheitzer’s Seminars, the Klopp Story, Wednesday’s Photos, and Bill Laux’s Mining Era. 

Happy New Year from Biene and Peter!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

My dear blogging friends, I would like you to know that I am taking a break from publishing posts during the next two weeks. We will have a family gathering here at our house. Three of our five sons will be able to come home for Christmas: Tony and his wife Lisa with our little granddaughter Elizabeth, Michael and his wife Angie, and Stefan. So blogging will have to take a backseat during this joyful event of celebrating Christmas with the family. All the best wishes go out to you for the New Year from Biene and me.

Let there be peace on earth.

Mushroom Fever in the Fall

 

The mushroom season is over now. The local buyers have closed their shops. It has been a good year. The Pine mushrooms have been bountiful in spite of the extremely dry conditions in the summer and early fall. In the basket you see a very fine collection of No. 1 rated mushrooms (buttons) that were selling this year for about $20 a pound. It always brings excitement and joy to us after Gertrud (Biene) has been combing the local forests for these precious fungi. To highlight the season I wrote this poem a few years ago. Enjoy.
