Last night my hubby finally got home from a week long business trip to Portage La Prairie, Manitoba, so I didn’t have a lot of time to work on my blog because Mikey wanted to show me all the photos he took while he was away.
On July 1st (Canada Day), Mike and I spent the day driving along the shores of Lake Huron looking for lighthouses to photograph. It took us just under 2 hours to get over to Point Clark to get to the closest lighthouse in our Bruce Coast Lighthouse Tour brochure. I took an amazing variety of pictures that day while we explored, and I have been really looking forward to sharing some of them with you.
This first photo was taken on the way to Lake Huron, and I think I scared Mike a little when I yelled, “STOPPPP, I need a picture of that!”. It has actually become quite a popular thing in our area lately for people to hire a carver to transform the stump of a fallen or cut down tree on their property into a work of art, and most of them are extremely lifelike. In fact in Orangeville, Ontario, not far from where I live, they have an Art Walk of Tree Sculptures which is a project that gives trees a new life after they have been declared beyond hope by the municipal arborist. This particular tree trunk is on the front lawn of a farm property in Bruce County, so it seemed only fitting that the carving was done of a farmer behind an old style horse-drawn plow. Isn’t it great?
