The new LEGOLAND opened in Toronto.
My son was thrilled. I took us 4 1/2 hours to go through. OK, there was plenty of time spent just building beside the kiddie pools full of bricks.

There are a couple for rides, 4D movies, areas to race your imagination inspired cars, and an opportunity to build a project with the Master builder class.

William was focused on the earthquake table. You build a tower with Duplo and press a button to have it subjected to an earthquake.  The results are a learning experience.

I was amazed at the room full of all the Ontario landmarks. The Master builder did an excellent job. I have to admit the I spent a great deal of time just looking at all the detail.

William had to laugh when he found Chewbacca in the stands at the Toronto Maple Leafs Game at the ACC.

Well worth the visit is you have a Legoholic, like my son.

We got to Haliburton this year to discover the old girl got a lovely new coat of paint!

She looks very proud in her shiny new coat. I hope it lasts a while before someone has to come along and deface it with scratches and paint bombs.

Kudos to the restoration crew….

William was very impressed……

William and I went on another museum adventure.

It is our day off, so be started our day taking mom to work. Hamilton is a short drive from Toronto, and well worth the trip.

We had the whole place to ourselves. Shame more people don’t take advantage of the place.

We wandered around the history for a couple of hours. William’s favorite aircraft were the ones that he could get climb into. He flew many imaginary missions in the real captain seats. I have fond memories doing the same with my Dad.

This museum holds a special place for me. This is that last museum that my father and I visited together.

Now there have been 3 generations of our family to walk amongst the wings.


thx for reading

There are these seeds near my home. They look like enormous dandelions. I have no idea what they are. I stopped the van on Saturday and collected a coffee cup full.
These are results of playing around with my trusty 100mm macro and a tripod. I used my playbook as a black reflective surface.
I added a little interest with an eye dropper and a mister.
What do you think?

I have taken shots of this engine on a number of occations. It is a requirement that we stop by and visit it when we are in cottage country. William would so upset if we did not visit “his” train, when we are in Haliburton, Ontario, getting supplies.
I think this black and white treatment does her justice.

I am beginning to move into a black and white phase, I think. I am looking more and more with black and white in mind.
I think I will spend a little more time in Lightroom and experimenting with the black and white settings.

Wish me luck.

It is spring here in Ontario. The winter was very mild and our May weather feels more like July. Up at the cottage, the road sides are covered with huge areas awash with Trillium. I have never see so many.

I had to stop and enjoy them.

Trillium: the official flower of Ontario.
