Weekend Trip to Stratford, Grand Bend and Pinery Prov. Parc

This sunny May weekend we went for a little trip to the shores of Lake Huron, visiting Stratford and St. Marys on the way.
We had a great time playing with Johann in the sand, taking long strolls on the beach and admiring nature in one of the most beautiful Provincial Parcs we've seeen so far. There are plenty more photos...

Jane's walk - Neighborhood walks in Toronto

Albeit immigration-related, due to business decline or rise, or simply gentrification. You'll walk with other like-minded people in a stretch of the city eager to discover the foremost hidden parts of it. Here are some photos from our strolls....

Chasing Mr Racoon

Steph finally managed to shoot a photo of one of the essential parts of our back yard wild life (we're in Canada, eh!).
Mr. Raccoon in full daylight! I'm always mistaking our neighbors enormous cat for a racoon and I finally know why: this poor guy is not well "in shape" like his fellows but way too skinny.... maybe he didn't get enough delicacies from our garbage bin?
