Algonquin Provincial Park

Early last week, I was in Algonquin Park for 3 days at a work meeting. Not having much free time to explore with a camera, I was forced to get up before dawn and head out. I walked the first part of the Beaver Trail Pond with a flashlight because I couldn’t see a thing.…

Port Hope Beach

Back at the beginning of April, the fam jam drove down to Port Hope beach. We had no agenda, and were just looking for a quick change in scenery. There’s not much more to tell. We spent about an hour playing on the beach and at the park and going for a little walk before…

Harley Farms

It was a last minute decision and the weather was awesome, plus most of Peterborough was probably at the St. Patrick’s Day parade, so the crowds were lower than normal at the farm. We spent time playing on hay…
