Rising Waters

Yesterday I went for a walk along the Otonabee River in Peterborough during my lunch break. From my office window overlooking the river I could see that the water levels were quite high due to the cold weather and constant rain we’ve been getting lately. Below are a couple phone shots edited in the Snapseed…

Niagara Falls

Our family has been going to Great Wolf Lodge just outside Niagara Falls, Ontario every year for the past 9 years… sometimes a couple times a year. Every year after our trip we drive by the Falls but never get out of the car despite promising to do so every single time. This year was…

In an Instant

Snow Days

It’s really been a green Christmas and we’ve been unable to do some of the things we want to at this time of the year… like play in the snow. Finally, a couple days ago it got cold and started to snow. Our tobogganing hill down the street was usable and the ice was ready…
