Where are we?

Monday, May 11, 2020

Another lazy week.  Not much new so far!

At 9:46 this morning, it was 2.8° C.

But, when I woke up at 7:35, it was 5.6° C. It is an up-sided world! It should be warming up, not the other way around.

When it is cold and the wind is blowing, you watch the news.
Every day it is the same thing. I wonder why I still watch it?
And the journalists who keep asking the same questions. They answered it once, what more do you want?

Meanwhile in Saskatchewan, Jeremy went fishing with a friend. His friend caught a nice size pike.

A good day.

Today, my walk was a little longer, about 5.8 km.
Lake Ontario's level is still pretty good. No flooding on the horizon.

Michele needed some stuff from the dollar store. Me? I waited in the car.
The wind picked up and the cardboard from the dumpster was flying around in this enclosed yard. The young man was trying to catch the cardboard as it flew around. It was funny.

A photograph came to take family porch photos at Jeremy and Kristin's place.
What a nice family, we love them very much. We have not had the chance to hold Natasha yet.

Jeremy and Kristin decided to have the photos taken while Gabriel was home with them.

Gabriel loves his little sister and we heard that Natasha loves Gabriel, because she is smiling when he talks to her.

We cannot wait to see them.
Who knows!

I am out for another walk this morning. This time, I walked a little way along the Murray Canal. This time it was a big 5 km.

The old railroad swing bridge linking Prince Edward County to the mainland.

The water table is pretty high around here. The ditches take a long time to drain. The water in the ditches is crystal clear.

One more photo of our grand-daughter, Natasha.

The Ontario people had a surprise this morning. The Premier of Ontario said the campground will be able to open for seasonal camper Saturday morning. The campground owners of Ontario were taken by surprise by this announcement! They now have 36 hours to finish prepping the campground for opening. Our friends are now scrambling to get everything done to be ready for Saturday.

Natasha tasted carrots for the first time. She loves it.

Jan asked us for a hand at the campground, while keeping our social distancing of course. Michele and I had to wrap the playground structures with snow fencing to prevent kids from playing on them during the pandemic. It still took us a little over an hour to get everything done properly and safely. We were glad to help. We made sure we were safe and they were safe with social distancing.

North Shore RV Park is now open. Not for us as we are overnighters and not seasonal campers. We understand.
Seasonal campers are super happy.

My walk was a little longer today, a nice and somewhat warm 5.4 km.

The Murray Canal joins Lake Ontario, on the left and the Bay of Quinte, on the right.

As we can see, the water level of Lake Ontario remains stable.

I had to add some extra holes on my belt to allow me to tighten it a little more. I am shrinking at the waist?

Jan, Jannie and Patricia told us the seasonal campers were mostly obeying the distancing rules in the RV Park.

Until next time.

Stay safe & Stay healthy.

Life is good...
