August 16th,2014

July and the beginning of August were mostly wet and cool. A LOT OF HUMIDITY. But I walked most days and got quite a few good pictures.

Scenes from Harrisson Park in Owen Sound – we went up for Penny and Bill’s wedding. I enjoyed 2 walks in the park and Garnet got to relax and have a pipe – Saturday afternoon and late Sunbday morning.
