Yesterday's weather

Most of the afternoon the lake was pretty rough, a storm front arrived from the west with high winds knocking some branches down.  The rain didn't amount too much but with the winds it came down hard.
Before the storm I was taking some video of the lake just across the road.

Hedlund marsh last week

Just got the computer back from the mental hospital, had this pic on the desktop when it went crazy.  So I am trying to post again, looks like it found its brain again .

July's supermoon a couple of days late

Had been trying to get a pic of the July supermoon since it was full, cloud cover was the culprit.  Last night through a hoard of mosquitos I finally got a couple of shots.  Fortunately there will be another in August and one in September, this doesn't happen very often.  They claim that the August one will be the best, I'll be there.

Boat launch at Longpoint Lake

Stopped into the public boat launch at Longpoint lake after taking a load of garbage to the dump.  Water's were calm, years ago we left from here and travelled up Longpoint lake in canoes to Sanderson Lake and portaged to the Montreal River to Sisseney Lake, from there down south on the Montreal River passing thru Tommy Lake, Crotch lake and into Obushkong right back down to Burk Lake in Gowganda. Walked into Gowganda to pic up the truck. Some of those pics are back on the blog in 2008 start of September. One of many good trips we have taken.

Rise of the blueberries

On a warm south facing rock today a first sign of some Blueberries trying to ripen.  Should be a good year again like last year.  Weather has certainly been good for them.

The big one in the picture tasted great, first one of the year.

Trying to eat and I still have white feet and mosquito's all over my face

Here's one from early this morning a snowshoe hare eating with his white feet from winter and his face covered in mosquitos.

Lots of whitecaps on the lake these days, the wind has been very strong and steady the last couple of days.  Lightning strikes yesterday may generate forest fires in the next day or so.  Here's a pic out the window.
