We hadn't been there since last February when we went snowshoeing (alas, we had no snow this year).
This is the Spruce Lane Farmhouse, which was built in 1899. It is a turn-of-the-century historic house museum near the remaining original apple orchards. Open in the summer, the house features costumed interpreters.
There is a peacock and three hens near the house. He was chillin' when we got there.
We followed the trails. It was a nice day to be outside walking around.
We spent some time at the creek.
Then we followed it for a while.
We climbed the hill and posed on the lookoff using the timer and a mini tripod.
Back on the trail ...
There were lots of trilliums, which is the official symbol of Ontario.
The peacock was showing off to his ladies when we left the trail.
I spent some time watching the pigs ... they were enjoying an afternoon snooze.
Then the male decided it was time to get up and woke the other three up.
She wasn't impressed with him ... and let him know it by peeing in his face when he followed her around!
What a fun afternoon! It was great to get outside.
Aw, that really looks like a fun time-I'm quite jealous because it looks like such a beautiful area :)
Those pictures of the peacock with its tail fanned are stunning!
What a great day and those are fabulous photos! Way to go, that course really paid off, didn't it?
