Chaffeys Lock to home #4

Sat., March 10th's drive: 'twas a whim. A partly sunny morning turned into a dreary afternoon. We didn't let it stop us.
Narrows Lock to see the birds! #1
Narrows Lock to Newboro #2
Chaffeys Lock and Opinicon #3
This is the final installment, interrupted by March Break!
March Break with the Grandies!
March Break with the grandies- episode 2
March Break with the grandies – episode 3
March Break – episode 4

We had lunch in Chaffey's Lock, at Opinicon, and I asked JB to drive home via Perth Rd. to capture a photo of an interesting home.
We're still in the depths of winter. This morning, again, it was -17 C.


This is one of the fields that belongs to Queen's University. They have dozens of blue bird nesting boxes.


I asked hubby to go home this way. This house is quite something. They are putting on new siding on the left side.


Someone needs to clean this window! They had gassed up and ordered chips, happily- they were served by the time we were ready to leave.


We witnessed what JB calls a hostage exchange! We often do this, meeting the kids in Carleton Place, halfway between their home and ours, to drop off of pick up the grandies!


Home through Westport, where Life Is Good!

You drove right by my M.I.L. house. There are some seriously eccentric houses down around Buck Lake. We always find something weird and wonderful to look at when we visit there.
Lots of "hostage exchange" happening at the beginning and end of March Break and other school holidays. Gosh we did our fair share over the years. We were so happy to hand them over at the beginning and so happy to have them back at the end.

Still looks like winter, huh? It was eight degrees here yesterday so there is hope!

A bit like " The house that Topsy built". Still a lot of snow, has spring shown any signs yet?

That is a weird looking house.

I'm glad you two can get out and about even in that winter weather (I know you don't mind it -- I'm glad you're a Winter lover, especially this year when it seems like Spring is very late everywhere but here in the subtropics.
