Gowganda evening

After quite  a bit a rain the last few days this evening turned out pretty nice.  The air has a cool nip to it, all the better after the hot days we had.

More roadside flowers

More plants along the road edge Queen Anne's Lace or Wild Carrot (Daucus carota) kind of a let down don't you think.

Black Spruce stand

Here is a pic of a Black Spruce stand that I visit once in awhile to see what's happening.  This used to be surrounded by Jack Pine forest until it was cut .  It is now an island that is slowly drying up.  Every time I come up here I can see the difference.

Blueberry update

Blueberries are coming along.  Today on the Bouche Rd there were spots that you could easily pick enough for dessert in no time,  another few days will make a big difference.

In for shopping last week

For the past week I've had the boys up.  They have been fishing and swimming most of the time in Gowganda Lake.  When we stock up on more food in town we usually stop in Haileybury just south of New Liskeard. Haileybury has a great swimming area that juts out into Lake Temiskaming, great for kids as it has lots of lifeguards and also a SLIDE RIDE.  The slide ride stopover for the kids is a hit before or after shopping.  Just a couple of pics to show you the beach and some slide action.  When in town shopping with kids you should check it out.  It is usually open after lunch for the afternoon and there are lifeguards at the top and bottom of the slide.

Another from Bouche Rd.

Most people should recognize this beaver pond up the Bouche Road if you had your eye level with the top of the beaver dam.

Nice break after all the hot humid weather

Out for some pics today up the Bouche Rd.  Blueberries are coming along nicely, this was the best I could find and it took awhile, another couple of weeks there should be some good picking.  Lots of daisy's out too.

Cool day today

Great day today cool, low humidity but still lots of mosquitoes in the bush.  On the trail from Edith Lake and Obushkong  Lake I took several pictures and some videos.  Here is one of some of the plants that are growing in moss under a heavy stand of spruce and pine.
