SKYWATCH FRIDAY - Indian Summer Skies Over Point Pelee


After my drive to the Point Pelee Tip got rained out (previous post) the weather shifted, and it got warmer and sunnier. So my neighbor and I took her two corgis on their tandem leash (is there anything cuter than fluffy little corgi bums scampering along side by side?) and headed to the Tip. Here are two views of the very southernmost land of Canada, one looking out into Lake Erie, and the other with my back to the lake, showing the divided water. And of course, a photo of Katie and Lizzie in their glory!

Very confusing...

Glad you finally made it to the 'tip' Deb.... Great pictures. Those little fluffy guys are so cute. I'm sure they loved the area also.

Hugs,
Betsy

Deborah Godin said...

@ Lin - Alas, no corgi bums...my memory card was maxed out!

Lorac said...

That makes me long for summer again! Haven't been to the tip in a long time!

Oh, what terrific shots, Deb! So glad you got some sun and made it to the "tip"! Love those Corgies! Aren't they fun to walk with? Sam and Mojo always have so much fun, that I do too, regardless of the weather.

Enjoy your weekend!

I really need to get out there some time!
I want to see photos of the cute little bums! I'm disappointed.

Just kidding. The photos are lovely.

Beautiful shots!
I love the first one. It's as if I've reached the last very pointed tip of land there is. This shot is definitely for daydreaming. :)

Looks like a wonderful place to walk. Did you see many birds, or did the little guys see them first?

So vast, looking out. Can you see the other shore?

Excellent shots, love the view in the first pic.

All the best

Cute dogs - corgies have such interesting personalities. I must get to Point Pelee one of these days - there's so much in this part of the country I haven't seen yet.

I'm late returning visits, but that doesn't mean I don't appreciate your stopping by and your commenting. :)
