Point Pelee National Park

Ontario, Canada.

Land where most of my people are from.

These are pictures from a trip taken 10 years ago with my digital.  It was very different from another trip taken there 20 years before that when our children were young and there were such nice bogs at the time.  Could not find that area, if it even exists anymore.  I have a few pictures taken with a disc camera from the 80’s of the bogs but if any of you are even familiar with that format, you know the quality was not very good.  I had a 35 mm but purchased a Kodak disc because it was smaller, auto focus and didn’t want to risk my good camera in that environment of water and sand.  I always took a cheap camera to the beach.

Mom found an old abandoned Coke machine in the woods.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy Place

OctHiddenLakeGardensFall 117Hidden Lake Gardens in Tipton Michigan is the happiest place I know of, no matter what the season.  I have loved nature since I was a small child.  Plants, animals, smells, the feeling I get just walking with the breeze on my face, everything about outdoors!

Fall is an especially beautiful time to me and I wanted to share some of this with you.  Take care and God bless!

Daily Prompt: Through the Window Lightly

Two birthday Butterflies greeted me yesterday.

There was one on my window and I saw it when I first opened the window to greet the day.  When I went outside to get a better shot, it was gone.
