Favourite Photos (1).

Mainly from Port Bruce : )

[Photo: The only shot from a foreign country (Port Glasgow)]

The rest of the photographs were taken 'along the way', i.e., as I travelled to or along the beach at Port Bruce, Ontario. I visit the small port often because of its world class BLTs, hamburgers and Key Lime ice cream at The Corner View Cafe. I have made the 60 km. trip from London so often my Yamaha knows the way there by itself.

Stormy weather in August:

Sailing weather in September:

Black and whites:

Swimming with one hand, snapping photos with the other : ) -

Yamaha cools off while I enjoy a Key Lime cone:

I'm betting good riding weather will be available well into November.

So, more photos to follow.

Port Bruce, Sept. 26, 2017.

[Photo: Nice day for a cruise]

I was on the road by 10 AM and doffed my riding jacket at my first stop, south of Belmont, after taking a look for Mr. Snap Turtle in a wee creek. Air temperature was perfect. Later, I found the temperature of Lake Erie perfect for swimming and bobbing along in the deep end. And after my dip, I found the temperature of the Key Lime ice cream at The Corner View Cafe to be perfect as well.  

So, "nice day for a cruise" is an understatement.

Photos from along the way:

 One part of the beach was almost all mine.

 Curl of the waves was just right

Two shots from the deep end:

 Not much going on. Perfect.

 No turtle. Just me.

Corner View Cafe, home of the world's best BLT (and Hamburger, I'm told) : )

Port Bruce, Sept. 21, 2017 (2).

Before 'The Deep End'.

[Photo: Before I jumped into the lake, I had to get there]

First, I stopped at Edgeware Line Creek to see if I could catch a glimpse of Snappy lounging under the bridge. I didn't. Only caught my reflection.

Then I stopped at the side of Glencolin Line to see how my future workshop looks. Oh, man. It still looks great. (I wonder how much the next door farmer wants for it? Probably a lot more than I've got).

"Gord's Workshop"

Then I had to have lunch at The Corner View Cafe, in the centre of the heart of Port Bruce. The Snowbirds (warming up for London Air Show) flew overhead while I licked my chops. Snap, snap, snap.

Then I had to change into my swim trucks and walk - slowly, thoughtfully - toward the beach. It is only 150 metres from The Corner View BLT Emporium to the beach, but I took my time. 

"The Deep End. I'm definitely thinking about it."

Then I soaked in some sun. 

Then I grabbed my camera and headed toward the water.

More photos to follow.

Port Bruce, Sept. 21, 2017.

Subtle Differences.

[Photo: Same location as Sunday, slightly different colours]

Sounds in the air at the small port were different yesterday than a few days earlier. The metal channel barrier was squeaking, or groaning eerily. 

The subtle, daily differences in sights, sounds and colours (and more) may be one of the reasons I keep returning to these particular shores. Key Lime ice cream at 3 bucks a pop is a good reason too. : )

Yesterday I went for a dip in the deep end. Small camera got wet... but only for a sec. Photos from 'The Deep End' will appear soon, after the photo card dries off.

Postcards from Port Bruce:

From Edgeware Line, my first stop yesterday, to see if Mr. S. Turtle was home:

Nobody home but me.

My future workshop : ) on Glencolin Line:

 Not much traffic but the shop will thrive! Kiddin', of course.
