Weekly Winners - Summertime



It's been over a month since my last WW, and I've missed this. This week just some snaps of what we've been up to, colder summer temperatures notwithstanding...

Nightime at a friend's rented farm near Thornbury:

Exploring the Scenic Caves of Blue Mountain:

My off-roader in Albion Hills
The beach in the hills
We took the kids to Markham Museum, an outdoor museum which captures life as it was in the 1800's. A little gem, which I'd always wanted to visit but never had the chance. We had our own tour because no one else was there! First, inside a typical variety store:

A wreath made of human hair, displayed in a family home:

(Edited to add: uh, I think when I posted this initially it looked like, yeah, a wreath of human hair is just so everyday to me, when really I was thinking "OMG, a WREATH made of the stuff, it's sorta creepy, I HAVE to post this!!" and then thinking what an awesome wreath I would be able to make with all the serious high Asian hair turnover I have...that's the truth!).

And finally, newfound friend in our garden

Nice shots! The one in the old general store is spectacular. And it all sounds like a lot of fun.

Nice shots! I've seen one of those human hair pictures before at someone's house, it was of a horse! Gross, but fascinating. ;)

Great pictures! The human hair wreath is freaky, but awesome. The hike looks like it was tons of fun too!

High turnover Asian hair? Do you mean it falls out a lot? LOL If so, I MUST be Asian, I think.

Love the beach and the snail!

Looks like it was a great time!

I've never seen a human hair wreath before.

Oh, and I SO have the high turnover Asian hair! It's all over the house.
