Photo Friday: Green

The other day while my houseguests and I were touring the neighbourhood, we spent some time taking photos of a gorgeous ivy-covered landmark - the old Walker Power Plant - not far from my house.

Photo Friday: Simplicity

Today's Photo Friday picture was taken last summer when Peter and I visited Point Pelee National Park, a gorgeous spot at the very southernmost point of Canada, for the first time. It's only about an hour's drive from our home in Windsor, so I hope we'll get to visit again soon! ...more

May has come to a close, and with it another month of daily blogging with NaBloPoMo and photos with the Fat Mum Slim Photo A Day Challenge.
