Some pics with the new camera

Here are some pics I took with the new camera.

The scenery shots are from a walk I took around the cottage on Boxing Day. The pictures of the kids are from New Years Eve when our neighbours the DiCesare’s joined us for dinner, party and sleepover.

If anyone has any idea what kind of track that one picture is, please let me know. It was a big track….had to be something pretty large. But from what I know, dogs, coyotes and lynx all have four toes, not five.

Intrepid Exploring

Every year when we have our Christmas break at the cottage the boys and I go “intrepid exploring” into the trails in the land behind us. Nick is getting too old for this kinda action, so just Ben and I went this year. What a hike!

In past years we’ve slogged through snow or actually snowshoed. This year the ground was mostly frozen, and there was no snow to speak of. Much easier for walking.

Take a look below at the path we walked. (You can check out the satellite photo for greater perspective.) This was the first time we made it all the way around the little “lake” in back. But the day was so nice, and the walking so easy, it was fun. The route took us just under two hours. But now that we know its possible, this route will become the gold standard for our Christmas hikes.
