Friday August 7, 2009 - More Barns of Simcoe County & A Trail

My day started as usual with my walk/run. It was a beautiful sunny morning and the day was the same with a high of 23C (74F).

After breakfast this morning I coloured my hair - dark ash blonde this time so it's fairly dark right now but it will lighten over the next few washings.

I sat outside this morning after that and finished another book.

We had our lunch and then headed out to find the Scout Valley Trail that we had seen earlier in the week. The route we took didn't pan out as they're paving the road so we had to turn around and go another way but we got there.

On our way out we saw this aloof fellow at the Big Curves Farm

On the way we took some more barn photos.

A lot of cat tails along the road

Along the trail

I thought this was a nice touch - a hand painted trash dumpster

Lots of Queen Anne's Lace

Black eyed susan

At times the trail was rocky like some of the ones we were on in Arizona

At times it was sandy

And sometimes sort of deep

Gordon took this damselfly on my hat

The bridge across the brook - you can see the old little bridge on the left - Gordon photographing a damselfly.

We had a good time! After that we drove around some of the back roads for a while then filled up with diesel at 83.9/litre and headed home.


  1. Great trails today!! Love 'em!!

  2. Nice pics - really like the old barns.

  3. Rick, I agree, nothing better then the barns. Thanks Sandra

  4. Hi Sandra,
    I looked at your recent posts, and saw that you stayed at Heidi's campground- nice to see that their pool is up and running, as it was not when we there over 2 years ago with my in-laws, who also RV full-time.

    I've found the summer quite nice, but then again, I am not working during the week when the sun comes out. Weekends have generally been crap, and I feel for people who don't have weekdays off.

    I'm glad to see you're continuing to enjoy life on the road.
