Monday August 17, 2009 - HHH!

Today was hot, humid and hazy! Thank goodness we don't often get days like that up here. Our high probably wasn't as high as it's been the last couple of days but the humidity made up for it.

After my morning walk and breakfast, I suggested that we go to Peterborough to Peterborough RV to get a new sewer hose combination. We had bought a new one when we had the head of the bed raised there a couple of years ago and it was time for another one.

There was construction on Hwy 7 which is the main route to get there so after we had ordered the sewer hose, we decided to head south to get out of the construction and see if we could find a different way back to Lindsay.

We stopped at Lang Pioneer Village at Keene, Ontario just to have a look. Gordon is interested in going back to photograph the village.

Very pretty mill on site

From there we headed south and west through the country taking photos of barns and fields.

Rice Lake in the haze

Lots of pretty barns and fields

You can see the haze

We arrived home in time for a late lunch and a nap. We had a brief thunderstorm but it didn't amount to much. We had hoped it would bring in some cooler air and it might have lowered the humidity slightly.


  1. Lovely pictures, as usual, Sandra.
    It is so lovely up there right now, but I wonder what it looks like in wintertime with snow?

  2. Its really hazy here in Seattle too, but the zillions of cars cause it here. We never made 80 F today, but it was so hazy you couldn't see the top of Mt rainier.
