north bay

Went with family to take my granddaughter to the park, which is to the right of this area but I thought it was interesting how deserted the beach area looked…it was a warm night, definitely swimming weather?

I don’t post photos of my grandchildren, but was taking a photo of something else and I thought I would share this very cool finger painting by my grand daughter, before she was two.   I love this, but then I’m the grand mother so biased…

I was looking through some of the photos I’ve taken and came across this one…love this tree with it’s gnarly branches

I took this photo last fall, in October some time…we always have over the top winds in October.  This tree had a large base but it just couldn’t withstand the intensity of the wind that day.

Last week, Wed. April 27th, I stopped at the waterfront to take a few photos of the ice…it has finally begun to move.  If you look closely you can see the ice is beginning to crystallize as well.   A bit slow this year but then this winter has been unusual to say the least…

If you know me at all you know I love trees, especially “naked trees”…without leaves of course!   This was taken while driving on the way home from Florida…fyi…I wasn’t driving!   A crisp cold morning, brrrr.  There is a bit of dirty windshield showing up on the right hand side but I really liked this so excuse the dirt!

Someone questioned me about the lack of snow…we have lots, but I’ve not been able to venture out to take photos , so for now I will post photos I’ve taken in the past few years. Some I’ve posted before, some I haven’t…

A belated Merry Christmas to those who celebrate…this photo was taken Christmas night from my daughters balcony.  It was taken with my iPhone as I forgot my camera!
