Old Beaver Dam

cattail by the beaver pond, black creek, acton

The long grass along the black creek tributary is pressed down from the weight of winter snow. Not much has started to grow since the spring has arrived.

Down at the old beaver pond I see a tree that has been chewed on by a hungry beaver. I don't see any other recent signs so I am unsure if the beaver is still around.

The old dam has been holding up well - beaver construction is pretty good.

While these colourful old berries remain on the tree I come across new life with a gartner snake sunning himself beside Frog Pond.

Historic Fort York

military re-enactment at Toronto's historic Fort York, firing flint rifles

With the weather warming up things start to happen around the GTA. We visit historic Fort York where they are performing a re-enactment and firing off some old flint rifles. Ann was taking a video of the troops firing off a canon and when the boom of the gun happened she almost fell backwards into a ditch.

Bang - O - Rama

fireworks at Georgetown's Bang-O-Rama

We started out at Mohawk's Family Fun Day on Saturday and we were shocked by how busy the place was. This is the busiest day for the raceway and although they had a lot of stuff going on it was difficult to get around because of the crowds. Hearing that it would take about two hours to get out of the parking lot after the fireworks we decide to leave before the show starts. Deciding to go to Georgetown and watch the fireworks that are part of the Bang-O-Rama we make it just in time to watch the sights and explosions.

The Victoria Day weekend also provided a free circus down at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto. It was very enjoyable.

Canada Geese & Goslings

Canada Goose and goslings

It's that time of the year when the pitter patter of little goslings start to be heard around the edges of Fairy Lake. These guys were over at the Legion. No sign of female geese yet so their babies should be around soon.
