“Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness” John Keats
GATHERING STORM, POINT ABINO, LAKE ERIE, ONTARIO
“But I tell these kids a hundred times, don’t you take the Lakes for granted
They go from calm to a hundred knots so fast they seem enchanted”
Stan Rogers (White Squall http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMDk-3gCIRw)
Image of the trip! The historic lighthouse at Point Abino is accessible only by a private road which is open to the public only during the summer months. After some serious begging the security guard at the gate finally relented and allowed me to walk the one mile in. I’m glad he did as the clouds could not have been more dramatic!!
Often referred to as Niagara’s “other” falls shows but a trickle of water at the end of one the longest droughts on record.
THE COMFORT MAPLE, PELHAM, ONTARIO
Reputedly the oldest sugar maple in Canada, this plot of land on which it stands was donated by the Comfort family to the province of Ontario. My family were neighbours and good friends of the Comforts when they lived in Pelham.
