Some Photos and What We've Been Doing

Little Blue Church, Prescott, ON
On Sunday we headed to Prescott as Gordon wanted to visit Fort Wellington and Windmill Point Lighthouse as his birthday trip.

First we went to Windmill Point Lighthouse. It was supposed to be open on the weekend through September but although it was a beautiful day, it was closed.

Then on to Fort Wellington, he did the tour, I waited in the car. History isn't my thing.

This Little Blue Church was my father's favourite church in the area so we stopped and took some photos there.

After that we headed back home.

Today (Thursday 22 September), it was a lovely afternoon so we decided to go for a drive to see if there were any Fall colours.

We didn't see a lot of colour. It may still be too early.

As we were driving along a back road we saw this huge turtle crossing the road. When he saw us coming he turned around and went back the way he had come.

Once he got across the road he stopped in the grass along the side and looked like he was going to pull into his shell but he didn't.

Really big turle

Traveling the back roads

We decided these were cypress knees

 They are not cypress knees as we have no cypress trees in this area but we can dream.

The sumac has turned red

Cove Road is very pretty with it's canopied trees

We had a lovely afternoon and I had put some pork tenderloin in the slow cooker this morning so dinner was ready when we got home.


  1. Many Happy Returns, Gordon.

    You two had a great outing, and saw some great sights.
    I expect you took a lot of beautiful pictures, as did Sandra.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Happy Trails, Penny, TX

  2. I thought that was a big old snapping turtle, but his head just doesn't look quite right.?

    Happy Birthday to Gordon!

  3. What a wonderful sightseeing trip. I love the pictures. What a huge turtle!
