It is going to be a rather busy but nice weekend! Unfortunately the temperatures are settling into the 90’s through into next week. I was starting to get the feeling of fall, but not this weekend!
So tomorrow my husband and one daughter are taking a day trip to one of our favorite spots along Lake Ontario. On the NY side of Lake Ontario is the port city of Oswego. Directly across the large Great Lake of Ontario sits Toronto, Canada.
Here is the lighthouse in Oswego we love to visit.
Pretty huh? We will letterbox while there.
Speaking of letterboxing. My hubby and I did this one the other night just as the sun was going down. We had just sat down with a drink on the deck ( Tom Collins) and we decided we wanted to do a letterbox. We poured the drinkings into two travel mugs and drove about 1/2 mile away and walked along the Erie canal and found a letterbox. Sat on bench and finished our drinks. It was so pleasant!
We did another letterbox a few days ago in an old cemetery and I took this picture of the structure at the opening of the cemetery.
The walk along the canal always brings little treasures (flowers, birds etc. ) and this time was no different. Because of the dry summer the water level on the canal is low – it made for perfect carp spotting! I always knew that the canal is filled with fish but was never able to spot them. Look at these beauties – they are huge!
It was fun to watch them floating along without a care in the world.
Here is the progress on my Pocketbook slippers.
The wool is not really that pinkish….. and that bright. More burgandy and a darker shade.
Monday we will be heading to the fair – can’t wait! Pictures to follow!
