We had a busy weekend this past weekend with road trips both days.
Saturday was spent in Napanee visiting the town and the graveyard where many of my Mum's relatives are buried. I did a post about out last visit here.
Gratuitous cute critter photos .
Gorgeous day for a road trip. We took the main highway (401) down. We left pretty early and didn't encounter much traffic,
I know I have posted a photo of these hydro towers before but I find them so interesting.
We spotted this lady and her horses on the outskirts of Napanee.
We visited everyone at the graveyard and had a lovely walk as it is right beside the Napanee River. This is a photo of my Great Grandfathers house he built by hand. The current owners take such wonderful care of it.
Yesterday being Father's Day I thought a lot about my Dad. This photo was taken in the early 1970's on a trip to Quebec City. Take away the camera case and my Dad looks like a hitman! Don't you love the sunglasses???
Sunday was spent in Bomanville visiting my Mum. We again took the 401 down because we left late and wanted to get there quickly. This curve always reminds me of the winding roads in Vermont. Gorgeous in the Fall when the leaves are changing. Very treacherous in the Winter as it is very close to Lake Ontario and receives lots of snow.
My Mum was o.k. and we enjoyed visiting for a few hours. My brother keeps his house so cold in the Summer. My Mum had on a turtleneck, a sweatshirt and a shawl and was running a heater in her apartment. I popped on one of my Mum's coats and Chuck wrapped a blanket around his shoulders!
Lake Ontario with a boat in the distance. We came home along Highway 2 which is very picturesque. Another lovely day.
This morning I drove Chuck to work as I have some errands to do. As we were about a block down the road I saw what I thought was a yellowish rag on the edge of the road. Sadly it wasn't. It was Butterscotch. Someone had killed her with their car. I felt sick. Sweet little squirrel.
