Coping With the Heat

Coping With the Heat

So, how did you cope with the heat and high humidity this past week? When it gets hot, we leave our un-air conditioned house, pack up the dog, and head for the cottage. Our cottage is the travel trailer, parked at the end of the sundeck. It has air conditioning. It also has a microwave, […]

We Aren't Getting Older - We Are Maturing !

We Aren’t Getting Older – We Are Maturing !

I had an epiphany this morning. It came as I was putting on my pants…..or, trying to. Hopping crazily on one foot, I danced around for several minutes, once falling against my wife who managed to steady me while I guided my foot into the remaining pant leg. I am getting older, or as Galloping […]

For the Eyes of Kids

For the Eyes of Kids

It isn’t often that I do conducted events for school groups. I will turn 66 in December, and I find their energy a bit depressing. I can’t keep up with them. And I always seem to miss my noon nap. However, I like Kente Public School and the kids there seem to be really environmentally […]

Only, this was the year for a major outbreak of forest tent caterpillar on his property which also involved over […]

The Foul and the Loathsome

The Foul and the Loathsome

I have no fear of snakes, so it isn’t uncommon for me to pick one up and let it crawl and wrap itself around my arms. And this is what I did, on a guided interpretive hike last week, when we unexpectedly came across a somewhat uncommon red-bellied snake. I picked it up. In turn, […]

No Tornados, No Floods, No Earthquakes – We’re Lucky in the County

It was yesterday, May 31st, exactly 25 years ago, when the city of Barrie experienced a devastating F4 tornado. Although I wasn’t there, I remember the day very well. I was a Park Naturalist at Sandbanks and was on my way home at 5:00 p.m. The lights had been flickering and I made an off […]
