Calm water

 I was cycling this evening around town, very little wind so the water was calm. This is the Cow's Ice cream factory at the North River.

This is looking across the river, the rain yesterday sure brought out the green colour in the trees and grass.

Ellerslie bog

 This bog in Ellerslie has a lot of what I believe is the pitcher plant.

The sign doesn't tell us much about the bog.
I had a friend come to O'Leary with me and then take my car to Miscouche. I cycled the Confederation Trail from O'Leary to Miscouche, logging 58 km on the bicycle for the trip.  It was overcast at 9 with some wind, Unfortunately it was a head wind for most of the trip.  It started to rain just as I got to Miscouche.
No cards at Warren Grove for the summer months.
