Bruce Trail, North of Cypres Lake

At the start some thought they needed warm clothes
(they didn't)
This section is classified as "difficult"
Part of the difficulty is that you cannot get off
Met these 2 from St-Catherines, they were finishing the trail
all the way from Niagara to Tobermory in 31 days 
not consecutive though
Many beautiful views
the 5th member of our party
Another group of girls almost done the whole trail
these 3 girls are from Waterloo
12 more km at this point for them

Vegetable Garden

The Potatoes and corn look good

Peppers do well

and the tomatoes too except for Cherrie size

Almost time to eat Red Cabbage

There are pods in the broad beans 

We already ate lots of lettuce and 2x beans

The onions are having a tough year

We can hardly find them between the weeds

Around The Tractor Pull

It was not only Green tractors pulling
Blue and Red also participated
Bleachers on both side of the track 
The strangest award was for the newest tractor
why would that be worth a price?

Palmerston tractor Pull

 A week ago the Listowel Tractor pull was postponed
Tractors lined up cleaned and ready for the Pull
Talking Strategy
Weighing in
On Deck
Announcing Marc's maiden pull
First one in his class
not happy with the result,
the one who is first can choose to pull again
Marc pulled 2x and was 10th out of 14, not bad at all

The sky was beautiful, quickly getting darker
adding weight for the class that Trevor pulls in
 Trevor also pulled first in his class and also chose to pull again
Only his second pull was less then his first
the second one counted
Matt pulled and the chain came off inside the sled
so we were done for the evening

Most of the staff love Special Needs week
but it is very tiring

This guest asked me to take her picture
she is very nice

Friday BBQ 

and water melon

we usually have the last week 
so I've never before wrote the new menu
I did Tuesday & Thursday

Hope Bay

We had Coffee at Brenda's place
She moved to this area
This is the view from her place
In Hope Bay there is a gift shop
Called the Frog so the no parking sign makes sense
I liked this painting in the gift shop
a garden could be viewed
we ended the day with wading into the ice cold water
apparently Hope Bay is called by the locals Numb-Bay
due to the very cold water when the west wind blows
Short shorts was a good choice
