Honestly, this is the only picture I have to show you from July. Onyx sleeping. That’s it.
August however, saw Iain and me taking holidays, and heading to Bon Echo Provincial Park for a few days with the usual gang. It is a beautiful place. One of the walks we took led past a lovely swamp area.
|I love all the little mushrooms growing on the sides of this fallen tree.|
|It looks magical and mysterious to me!|

|There wasn't any info pointing to this old chimney. We could see where the plaque used to be mounted on it, and conjectured, from the bits of stuff recently burned in the fireplace, that the administrators found it best to not draw attention to it.|
|This fascinates me.|
Any time I see cedars growing from the sides of rock, now, I wonder if they could also be that old. It seems plausible.
|Nothing like a hidden treasure trove to spark interest!|
|...and the lake itself is over 400 feet deep. They say no one has ever seen the bottom of it (and lived, I'm guessing).|
|The size of these cliffs can be appreciated if you note the canoe at the base of them.|
|People are asked to not approach this building. You can, however, peek at it through the trees.|
|Iain and Carl guiding a beam.|
Iain put a new roof on the swing, made from the same steel that is on the cottage roof. I don’t have a picture of the completed project because the sun refused to shine on the days after he completed it, but this gives you an idea of how nice it will be!
|She's a sweetie!|
|On our last (very rainy) day there, the wee bunny felt safe enough to come out for a nosh.|
