A great hike at Mono Cliffs Provincial Park

   We celebrated my sister's birthday yesterday with a lovely hike along the
Spillway and Carriage trail up at Mono Cliffs.
Check out this map provided by Ontario Parks .. Mono Cliffs Provincial Park Map

I strongly recommend this walk this time of year, it is very refreshing and invigorating.

Along the way we met this forest frog licking a hobbit.

Just kidding,...

... they were part of the girl team

A good look out on the way down from the top of the hill

Lots of old fallen trunks

Pastures looked amazing along the road

Odd looking clouds on a 'robin's egg blue' sky,... ?

Strange variations of cloud

Enough hiking for one day

James Street Supercrawl 

Hammer Town
Sunday, Sept., 14th

Just three words to describe the day spent at 'Supercrawl' ...  "Fan - tas - tic "
Here are some images of the main acts I enjoyed. What a terrific street party!


Jimmy Hill - Organist extrordinaire!!

The Sugarman 3 Get more info !

 Lori Yates and Band sounding sweet as ever.

 The friendly bartender at Baltimore House serves a chilly and delightful 'Sawdust City' brew.
I particularly like the Crow bird logo throughout the establishment.
The establishment is really well appointed with the branding.

Had a terrific time in St. John's and the surrounding environs end of July and early August.

   After exploring and updating the St. John's experience I had the opportunity to tour Sunnyside Trinity Bay, Trepassey, Tor's Cove, Bay Bulls and the Regatta (North America's oldest sporting event, this was the 194th year) on Quidi Vidi Pond. The highlight of the trip was seeing my favorite folks my Aunt 'K', the Luthers and the Kennedys.
   Another highlight was enjoying 3 nights of the George Street Festival which included Headliners such as Jacob Dylan & the Wall Flowers, Dr. Hook, Alan Doyle and umpteem local Irish bands that played in various pubs and bars along George Street,... in one word... WOW!

   Thanks to my awesome cousins who remain the most solid people on earth!
