Gramma Camp – Week 33.1

So nice having coffee on the deck the with kids, while the girls slept in. 
Sunday. It was a day of sundogs. 

It's the end of an era. Farewell to our old bikes. Neither of us can ride them. We put them at the end of the driveway. I put a sign on them: 'For Sale $50 each. That'll ensure that someone steals them, and I'll be rid of them!'

The kids went home Sunday morning, and we chilled while Grampa watched the end of the tennis finals. I gave the girls a snack, as they'd slept in and weren't ready for lunch. Off to town we went.


Perth was busy, Sunday afternoon!
This is the new restaurant area, which is hosted by different restaurants over the summer.
We parked on Mill St. 
This is a fave spot for a bit of exercise, and water play. The Rocky Ramp Project has been a bit of a bust. [Haggart Isl. Dam and Bridge repair on the Tay River] Apparently, the flow has been spotty in the Tay Canal at times.  The flow isn't equal over the two ramps.

The homes around it are amazing!
The stone walls of Haggarts House.

From there, we went to Stewart Park.
Sunfish in the river, the girls spotted a turtle, too.

Stewart Park

We found a bullfrog! We convinced Jos that we should let it be. She loves reptiles!
I don't know what this tree might be! Someone suggested a Ginkgo Biloba, Maidenbush?! 

On the way home, we stopped for videos. Then they had lunch at 2:30, I'd brought snacks as it was a late breakfast. 

Sunday afternoon Grampa and I watched soccer, while our delicate flower granddaughters watched Godzilla vs. Kong! 😏

It was a great surprise, but all four robins   eggs hatched!

You had a full day! I would say that was a Ginkgo tree.

Now I'm surprised that you've given up the bikes. You quite biking when you're 80. The ebikes have become very popular.

I can't recall the last time I saw a sun dog.
