Every June these large adult turtles crawl up from our pond to lay their eggs in the sandy soil around our house. Yesterday we had four, this morning this one was busy beside my truck.

Not sure where this one wants to go but we do need to be careful where we step.

They make quite a journey every spring to lay their eggs which won't hatch until the fall. Unfortunately many of the eggs become supper for the raccoons.

Maybe that's a good thing as our pond can only support so many turtles and so far 14 have been up here digging holes.

Now if they all survived where would we put them?

Thanks for stopping by and keeping an eye on us.

Sold our beloved Airstream today. It's off to Montreal to be used in corporate functions. I had inquires from as far west as Calgary and as far east as Nova Scotia.

It needed new appliances and some renovation work on the inside. I could easily have sold 5 more.

Guess old Airstreams are still popular.

Good morning friends.

It's been a while but there isn't much to report when it rains every day and when the sun does shine the black-flies are out looking for blood. So we are now down in Thornbury with my sisters and brothers-in-law enjoying:

walks ......

around the harbour ......

good food ......

and birthday celebrations.

Thanks for keeping an eye on us and safe travels everyone.
