On Saturday my friend J and I headed for the hills, so to speak. She has history in that area, but hasn't been in many many years.

Beautiful view over Lyndock cemetery
Zoomed in a bit
Lyndock Baptist Church
We saw this lady and her dog puttputting across the field. She stopped to admire the view and pulled out her phone to take photos. I wanted to tell her how lucky she was, but I was afraid of startling her.
J and I took photos of each other with the blazing hills behind. Unfortunately it was a little hazy when we started out so things look a little muted
Letterkenny Road. Voted the best motorcycle ride in Ontario. We saw hundreds of bikes! We are at the intersection of 512 and some other road at the southern top of the road. There were bikes gathered here and folks standing in the middle of the road getting this iconic shot
Gorman Lake on Letterkenny Road. There were fishers, boaters and picnics happening here.
My arthritis has really flared up the last couple of days. I hate taking naproxen, but it really helps. After it kicked in I took a run to the town to buy more cabbages. M. is making saurkraut and cabbage rolls for his mother. I picked up a couple of essentials and scurried on home. I'm sure glad the ac in the car works well. It got up to 30.5C today!!!! Tomorrow is the last hot day, then a cold blast will start to move in. "They", whoever "they" are, are saying the Algonquin Highlands might see snowflakes by Sunday or Monday!
Our Canadian Thanksgiving is the coming weekend. We will host my daughter, M. father and stepmother and his aunt and her partner. (His Aunt and I are friends from way back.) His folks have been quite sick with this bug making the rounds, so we sure hope they are feeling up to coming out for dinner.
The following weekend I go to visit my family in Peterborough. It has been a year since I saw my siblings and four since my daughters!
