a tour at the worm business 

worms are fed and given dirt to stay healthy

lots of big fat healthy night crawlers or dew worms

stacking so every box gets light in, to keep the worms in the boxes

recycled cardboard, food for the worms

millions of worms in the cooler

these are baby European worms

faster, smaller and able to breed on farms
a ring like this means it's an adult

It was a very interesting field trip

Drayton House Tour

The first house was owned by a John Deere fan

nice decorations at this place

2 of the houses had quilts

the tour was organized by the United Church

some "natural ornaments at the DeVries'

and an inviting table

blue / white somehow makes it softer

I liked the way they used this blackboard

Terrace Creek Falls and DeCew Falls

Terrace Creek Falls

taking some people pictures

It was Moria and me today

I saw a picture of these falls taken by a drone a few weeks ago

a bit slippery up there

Start of DeCew Falls
looked like hydro involvement

the Mill

must have been restored recently 


top of DeCew Falls

and below that

These falls kept going on and on

Hoggs Falls Area

the frost helped make the start less muddy

we decided to form a human chain

made it to the other side without getting wet

love this part of the trail

so many nice unnamed waterfalls in this area

this one is named:
Hogg Falls

you can go down by means of a rope

I love this sign we see every week at the leaders meeting

and we love to sing before bible study

Arrival of our Voluntary Milking System

Yesterday a truck arrived

carrying 2 Lely Astronauts A4

Soon we will get some building going

funny thing is that the same driver brought the A3 next
7 1/2 years ago

Bruce trail Beaver Valley Ski Area

we parked the first car at the top of this abandoned ski hill

We started at -4C and ended around 0C

This is a pretty cool spot

it was a cool kind of day
but the sun regularly appeared

for quite a while we hiked on the ski slopes

ready for the season I put the camera on a machine and took this picture

sometimes the trail was quite muddy
but usually like this

there was way more water then I anticipated
