2007-07-25 - Justine from Montreal.
* Picked up at Hamilton airport.

D193-001
07-07-25 - Up the hill to Brock. To get the latest volume of the Harry Potter saga.

D193-004
07-07-25 - Perch. Justine actually tried reading a book while on this branch. Hard to find a comfortable position.

Visit to FFFarm.

D193-007
07-07-25 - Things were just ducky on the pond.

D193-009
07-07-25 - Feeding time in the corral.

D193-011
07-07-25 -

D193-014
07-07-25 - Nose to nose.

D193-016
07-07-25 - Sublime indifference.

A trip to Port Dalhousie.

D193-018
07-07-26 - On the west pier, Port Dal.

D193-020
07-07-26 - A little reward ... for being patient with Zaidy.

D193-021
07-07-26 - A promising shot. Justine is turning into a photo-buff, like you-know-who.

The Stevensville zoo.

D193-026
07-07-27 - Hey, you guys, turn around. What does it take to get your attention?

D193-022
07-07-27 - Water buffalo. Far from the banks of the Ganges.

Derek views the sculpture collection. These are by Rod Dowling who we met on the Rodman Hall trip to the Albright-Knox in Buffalo.

D193-023
07-07-27 - Emu (ostrich?) and thing.

D193-024
07-07-27 - The sculptures seem to fit quite nicely into the zoo setting. They are critters of another sort.

D193-025
07-07-27 -

D193-027
07-07-27 -

D193-028

D193-030
07-07-27 - Plenty of room to roam.

D193-033
07-07-27 - Don't fall into the hippo pool. Unless you get invited by a very polite hippo.

D193-034
07-07-27 - Scratch my neck. I'll scratch yours.

D193-037

At Nickel Beach, Port Colborne.

D193-038
07-07-28 - Justine, Nickel Beach.

D193-045
07-07-28 - An idyllic swim.

D193-048
07-07-28 - Wow! A fish. A great big fishie just looked at me with goggling eyes.

D193-049
07-07-28 - Golly! A grandfather. The only guy at the beach who swims in a Tilley hat.

D193-050
07-07-28 - Life is a beach. Why is life a beach? How should I know? Am I a philosopher? ... Well, sorta!

2007-07-29 - Woodside weekend.

D193-051
07-07-29 -

D193-052
07-07-29 - This followed a news item about a cat who regularly jumped up on the beds of nursing home senior citizens on the way out (up?)

D193-053
07-07-29 - Backyard. Just so that we remember next year, the garden of this year.

D193-054
07-07-29 - The pond and waterfall. That pointed rock is supposed to be Derek's mountain. A symbol of upward aspiration.

D193-055
07-07-29 - A brief note. Have always wanted to find a way to inject a sense of real narrative into a photo album. With a digital camera, you don't really need a portable computer to put thoughts alongside pictures. Just write it down on paper while the experience is fresh and then take a macro picture.

D193-056
07-07-29 - But remember to keep your fingernails clean, otherwise you'll have a heck of a PhotoShop touch-up job later on.

D193-061
07-07-29 - Not suitable for children.

D193-063
07-07-29 - Faceoff: catmint vs. oregano. Catmint and joe-pye-weed on the left. Masses of oregano on the left.

D193-065
07-07-29 - Just a quick note.

D193-066
07-07-29 - Omlette and melon.

Books I've enjoyed lately.

D193-067
07-07-29 - Wesley: Part of the Furniture

D193-068
07-07-29 -

A quirky, but satisfying ending.

D193-069
07-07-29 -

D193-071
07-07-29 -

An art history mystery.

2007-07-29 - Chippawa Creek.

D193-072
07-07-29 - Another swim, Chippawa Creek.

D193-073
07-07-29 - Sadly, the tacky-but-nice little hot dog stand behind the beach has been replaced.

D193-077
07-07-29 - Aunt Agatha prevails. She maintains bullet-proof good humour despite our hotdog stand setback. We'll have to go elsewhere for dinner. Home perhaps?

2007-07-30 - Niagara-on-the-make.

D193-087
07-07-30 - Blocked. The fort is closed. We went on a walk all the way round Fort George.

D193-084
07-07-30 - A moat walk in the gloaming.

D193-085
07-07-30 - Horti-cultural writing on the wall? Help! Help! I'm being held prisoner by Parks Canada under the south-east bastion.

D193-086
07-07-30 -

D193-089
07-07-30 - Good fences = good neighbours? Or so they say. In any case, the chipmunks seem to get along with the groundhogs.

D193-090
07-07-30 - Through a chink in the gate.

D193-091
07-07-30 - Portal, Fort George.

D193-092
07-07-30 - Unauthorized personnel, no admission.

D193-093
07-07-30 - We emerge from the moat. Youngstown, New York, on the opposite side of the Niagara River.

D193-079
07-07-30 - Boy swinging, Justine envious. She wanted so badly to try out that rope hanging over the water. But D. and M., acting in loco parentibus, would have none of it.

D193-094
07-07-30 - I wanna try.

D193-095
07-07-30 - If the rope broke ... you would be down among the willow roots and fishies, Justine.

D193-099
07-07-30 - Way down there.

Welland canal.

D193-103
07-07-30 - From the observation platform. QEW skyway on the horizon.

D193-104
07-07-30 - Bridge.

D193-106
07-07-30 - No re-arranging deckchairs allowed... On this Titanic-sized bulk carrier. More candidates for "Mills of the gods" or "Piranesi-esque machines"?

D193-109
07-07-30 - Coming up in the world.

D193-115
07-07-30 - Heading out of the lock. Southbound.
