Piping down the sun...

Every Friday evening in Goderich, throughout the summer, the Celtic Blue Highlanders 'pipe down the sun'..they play in a local park on Lake Huron, for about an hour before the sun goes down over the lake, although the evening was cloudy out over the lake, it was a magical evening, can only imagine when the skies are red, behind these people playing. It was very enjoyable and will go back again.





 This fellow was showing the kids how the bagpipes work during intermission..

Green Heron..

Today we noticed this fellow, as we went drove by the pond, initially thinking it was a 'young blue', I was excited enough, we turned back and I got my 'longer lens'..when I checked it out on here, realized that it was not a blue one at all, but a green. I have never seen one of these and was super excited.

Behind our home...

A short walk behind our home and we are on the beautiful shores of Lake Huron, we took a walk down on Sunday and walked along the beach for a mile or so, loved the sounds of the water splashing against the shore and the blue waters against the blue sky...

 The Goderich Salt Mine in the distance, hubby hopes to take a tour one day..

A 'Great' visitor to the pond today...

A Great Blue Heron was the first thing I seen today, on my way down to get the mail, have to walk past the pond, so glad I caught this fellow...
What will tomorrow bring??
This beautiful pond is a short walk from our home, I took this pic back in the spring, on one of our visits down to Goderich. We are slowly settling in, it is extremely hot this week, but we took a walk last evening.
Here is a shot I took of a snail in the water just off shore, I believe the smaller one in front of her possibly is her baby as she was very protective of it and the smaller one was moving too. sweet...
