Hay and Haylage

Today close to Dorking

Hay put on windrows the old fashioned way

2 weeks ago we did haylage

filled the silo halfway

and put the hay on windrows with this machine

the merger does it quite a bit faster

Cows on Pasture

Alway like to see the cows on pasture

you can see we've had mud, the cows have "socks" on

After first cut it looks so nice and green

the milk cow pasture is going to be cut soon

they like to be out in the evening

but they are looking for shade

Corinne does rugby

I've no idea when and why they do this

no easy catch with this ball

tough sport

but most get up every time

family was supporting

 I wouldn't mind watching more games

there was lots going on

they won

High water in St Clair river

The breakwall is every time battered by waves
it's 7 foot high and the neighbour remembers
that there used to be some beach in front of it

parts of docks are regularly under water

These kind of boats make the biggest waves

You can get quite wet sitting on the dock

and you're not always sure where the waves hit through the deck

but the weather was great and you know usually when a big wave comes

St Claire River

it rained all the way on Thursday

But yesterday the sun was there all day

nice house on the river
we stayed for 2 nights

we went on a bike ride of the bikepath 

everywhere you can see how high the river is

on the bike path

and the boat launch 

the ferry from Sombra looks very sad
I don't think the ferry will go anytime soon

such a nice bike ride

our gracious hosts

Farms and Homestead Fairmount area

the trail went through the wheat and on the edge

through a pasture field

pretty fence lines


and in the middle of nowhere irisses
so there must have been people living here

cattle with a view

close to the waterfall beautiful flowers

almost back to the vann
