There it was sitting pretty. thank goodness I got this in before my battery on the camera died. Such moments are so incredible.
Be a person who can recognize the sincerity of others. When you put your whole heart into things you will be able to notice the sincere acts of others in the subtle things they do, and appreciate them that much more.

tomorrow bright and early, I’m going to go insearch of the (female) moose I heard about today!
I’ve yet to meet a rock I’ve not liked. They can be hard to get to know, but always they have a story to tell. Much like trees, the longer they are around, the more ambiance they pick up and over time, they are works of art. Everything in life tells a story, yesterday was a fascinating day, I had a lot of new experiences, and met a lot of new rocks and trees that teased me with their history.
Discovering far away places, is great, except didn’t get my walking in, so I’m off this morning to make up for the steps I missed yesterday.
You will find joy when you immerse yourself in your task. when you face your tasks with a can do attitude, you will be filled with enthusiasm and inspiration.
Good morning, it was dreary when I looked out, but not raining, I thought, good day to go to Mud Lake, it was early enough, shortly after six.. however by the time I did a bit of this and that it was now going on 7:30.. still have time, I grabbed my coffee and headed for the door. My route to Mud Lake took me to an entry access to the 417 going West. By golly I was in the turning lane, I was going to either have to take the entry onto the 417 or get over a lane. =^_^=
It was one of those easy no brainers, I was on the 417 headed out towards Fitzroy Harbour and Morris Island. By now it was a steady downpour, no changing lanes on the Queensway, the morning traffic was heavy, so I just let it happen. I will tell you what you all know, overcast, humid, rain, is of no matter to the bugs and mosquitos. When I got out of the car to get a closer look at anything, I was mercilessly swarmed. I persevered it will be a trip for another day, if I have my way, a fall day. I did get to the parking lot, and had a brief look around, there were no other cars in sight.
Allow me to share some helpful information with you.. the little building is the loo, Female door is the one you see, the Male entrance is at the rear. It is very DARK inside, there are not signs on how to turn on the lights, they do not come on automatically, there is a box on the left as you enter, that if you look at it closely there is a small button, press that before you close the door otherwise you will be in complete darkness. There is a park fee of $6.00 you park and pay at the machines you see above.
The park guidelines are well outlined and posted .. please read up on what is and what is not permitted . Dogs are to be leashed at all times. I will return for sure.. but today’s trip has shown me that I will do so well after the mosquito season. ugh. The terrain, the landscape, the possibilities are endless for those wanting a hike, and outdoor experience. I of course heard a ton of wildlife, birds etc. that I have yet to identify.. didn’t miss the crows and raven calls tho’.. they are still my favourites.
Be thankful at the beginning and end of each day. Each and every one of your actions can inspire peace with your family, your community and the world around you. This peace will eventually help lead to World Peace.

NB I did show you the one place they posted for putting your canoe in the water, there are other places you can slide a kayak in too. On the road leading to the parking area, there are signs, they do not want parking along the roadway.
I wanted so badly to be on the water. The kayaks drifting along were such a tease to my imagination. Had I had water proof footwear I would have walked in the water.. it was so inviting. there are no swimming signs. A place to sit on the water’s edge with feet in the water.. ahhhh just the thought is enticing…. I looked for a suitable place, but couldn’t find one. The wild parsnip, upper left corner, is poisonous, there is a big sign that says to keep away, & not touch it. Very pretty though. The bird that I see and hear the most of is the red wing black bird. It is everywhere, unfortunately my camera doesn’t zoom in enough to catch it, but I do see it almost in and around every corner.
Change your mind, thinking “It will be alright” Do the best you can without being overly attached.
It’s okay! God is watching over you. Things turn out for the best. Don’t be captured by momentary troubles but continue doing everything with sincerity.

A note. I have been walking now with an app for about 3 weeks, today I achieved the 100K “medal”.. That felt rather good to read that on the app. I try to do about 2 miles a day. Why it is giving me the medal in K. I don’t know. But.. it sounds good.. It will give me the incentive to keep going.
Even though it was raining, I kept a steady pace, and actually incorporated arm movements, and high knee stepping into the walk. I wasn’t distracted by “picture taking” or using my walking stick(s). There are benefits to walking in the rain! =^_^=
Meet the turtle I met the other day, I have since been told she is a snapping turtle, the mound of earth that she left, has since been protected by I will assume the wild life staff that monitor what is happening in the conservation area. Needless to say I was happy to see that the “nest” has been protected. I had to reposition the green warning flags, but aside from that, her place looks like it has been secured. My next question, is how will she get back to be with her eggs, or does she even care?
It was a beautiful day, I’m getting better at doing the walk, and with a softer foot fall. =^_^= new walking shoes/runners help. With the little rain we’ve had, I note that the water in the area is not as high as it was over the past months.
This restaurant is one I pass almost every day.. They have had been closed for most of the year, like other restaurants, they have had take out, but little else. The owner(s) decided to build a patio all along the side of the building. The truck has been its mascot since the new owners took over. It has been patiently waiting for the patio to be done and the business going again. It is at a somewhat busy intersection, hard to just stop and take photos, but the other day, I managed to pull in .. the workman who had been working on the patio were no longer all parked outside.. I was able to stop and get out.. Isn’t she a beauty.
