One Day Late....


Yes...Yesterday was Friday the 13th...and you know what that means here n Ontario...YUP....all the bikers head to Port Dover...a quaint summer town on the shore of Lake Erie....We passed quite a few on the highway, on our way to the cottage...We only went for a short trip, as we have a wedding to attend to day...But...even though it was cloudy and pretty cool, We thoroughly enjoyed the outing!

Now....let's get to some beach pictures!!!










The Lake was really low...

And a nice sandy beach had appeared...

Whenever the wind is from the North...

You are always guaranteed a calm lake...and usually a sandy beach...

I love a North Wind!!

A lot of new rocks were on the beach...

Rather large ones!!





Somebody lost their flip-flop!!







 These tiny sunflowers sprang up from seed, under a feeder I had hung down there...

 They are quite small..


But very proud!!!








.











More devastation on the beach!!!

Someone really loves the watermelon and cantaloupe!!


But.....just between you and me...

They keep missing this one at the top of the beach garden...

SOOOOO...

Perhaps ONE will make it to ripeness!! 










This Mullion plant has been growing on the beach all summer...

IT IS HUGE!!!

And I captured it while still wet from the rains...

It is a native plant...and the foliage is a soft grey...almost like lamb's ears!!!























  


Hope you enjoyed our day-trip to the cottage....

I got lots of great photos, which I will share later...

Thanks for all your input on my photo editing problems...

AS you can see....these are Au Naturel...not even my initials...

Besides....I HAVE NO TIME TO FIDDLE!!!

Must get showered and beautified for the wedding...

My kids will be here at 12....wedding at 1pm... 



Enjoy your day.....I hope to!!

                         Cheers!  :o)

  1. I love the little sunflowers on the beach, they have to be unique, they are just darling. Hope you had a fun day yesterday with the bikers and on the beach, the weather made for very atmospheric pictures, regardless of any editing. I take it the munched melons are courtesy of the &^(£%!) again. If he keeps on like this he will get coal in his stocking at christmas! Hope you had a great time at the weddin and a good weekend afterwards - we are expecting storms here!
