Birthday fun in the sun.....and snow

Having fun on the Bruce Trail.

The kids are off school here this week for March break.

We are fortunate in South Western Ontario to be surrounded by 3 great lakes. Yesterday we went to Owen Sound for the day. Owen Sound is a town on a large peninsula of water (also called Owen Sound) off Georgian Bay which is part of Lake Huron. It is a very popular resort area. Much of the water in Owen Sound was covered in ice. It was amazing to see such a large body of water partially covered in ice. The water there is so pure that the ice boulders on top of the water were tinged with blue.

Later we went to Inglis Falls and the Bruce Trail. We travelled 2 hours north of Guelph, and the snow here is much deeper. Here is the family walking along a trail on the Bruce Trail. We saw snowshoe tracks, and there is a very good reason for this. The snow here is very deep, and as soon as we stepped off the tracks we sank about 2 feet into the snow. Even the pup realized to keep on the track. It was such a fun day!
