Jan.13 2013 Flood

We live in Belle Ewart, Ontario which is known as a great place for Ice Fishing. The Ice Huts need to come off Lake Simcoe by March 15 and the lake hadn’t started freezing yet, a mid-January thaw is newsworthy but unwelcome.

Tree Cutting

During my recent visit to Carbonate Landing, B.C. Bill Hamilton and I decided to clear 3 large poplars from the spot that Bill was preparing for a new outdoor privy. The location is amazingly beautiful and these particular trees were well past their “best before” date and represented a potential hazard to future users of the planned facility. After felling the first one, we decided to film the rest of the operation for our own entertainment.

Usige Ban Falls

Usige Ban Falls is near Baddeck, Nova Scotia and the Cabot Trail. My wife, Jenni and I hiked here on July 19, 2012 when this video was taken.

North River Hike

Moose on Skyline Trail

On July 23 2012, my wife, Jenni and I were hiking on the Skyline Trail in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park Of Canada. We met other hikers who were watching the bush where they had seen a moose. I got a lucky still shot of his head as he dashed across our paths, then switched to video and got over 2 minutes of him grazing while calmly ignoring his audience.

Jenni’s Giant Sunflower

Jenni planted 3 sunflower seeds this past summer and one of them grew to about 12 feet tall!
