Not one of my better days so I’ll just leave you with a few photos taken Tuesday morning down around the Goderich harbor.  Oh, and we still have no telephone service!!!!!!!!!!!!

GROANER’S CORNER:((  Customer: Waiter, is this supposed to be coffee or tea?   Waiter: What does it taste like?   Customer: It tastes like gasoline!   Waiter: Well, sir, that would be the coffee. The tea tastes like turpentine.


Confucius say, "When you are angry at neighbor, walk a mile in his shoes. Then you will be a mile away from him, and you will have his shoes!"



  1. Nice pictures of the harbour , there will be better days ahead, now that you are back home and off the road.

  2. It may not have been one of your better days, but those were great photos! I hope tomorrow is better ... one day at a time :-)

  3. Beautiful pictures Al. Praying tomorrow will be a better day

  4. Some days are just like that so hoping for a new and better day for you tomorrow. Words fail me to show my appreciation for again gifting all of us with your spectacular photos. My favorite are the ones of the geese. Feel I could just reach out and touch them. Have a good night's rest.

  5. WOW if this is a bad photos day I can't wait for a good day. thanks for the photos Al.

  6. The guys in T shirts on the ship in all that ice is great. Did those geese come back too soon or just forget to leave? Great photos sir.

  7. The crisp light and scenes you capture in these winter photos are a refreshing change from so many years of sunlit southwestern imagery. The shorter days and cold blue skies might do a number on your mood (coupled with other worries), but for Bayfield Bunch blog fans, these new batches of photos provide a look few of us see of snow-covered rural Canadian countrysides and lakes. A white icy wonderland. And you are now back in time to aid wildlife with food at their moment of greatest need...the tail end of winter.

  8. Awesome pictures, thanks for sharing Al. There are better days ahead, the sun will continue to shine and the air will warm, before you know it, there will be blossoms and blooms everywhere.

    Love the ice breaker!! No coats on those fellows!!! Hardy souls they must be.

  9. Your pictures are by far the best! I’ve noticed on the crisp picture of the incoming fishing tug “Mike J” that it sported far too many antennas bristling in the sunshine for an ordinary fishing tug. Is this “Mike J” a spy ship (maybe a Chinese or Russian, ha ha) or could it be a research vessel?
    I’m not an expert, but I skippered our “Diesel Duck” trawler around Cape Horn and had a couple of antennas too. Maybe get your spyglasses out to watch the culprits.
    All the best to you, Kelly and the Pheebes.

  10. Hello Al,
    Hope your spirits are lifted soon as your blog and photographs lift mine. All the best to you, Kelly and the Pheebs. Connie

  11. Got caught up on your trip back home from Florida... look at all that green!!! then back home... not quite the same... but oh, home, isn't it great to be in with all your 'things' and memories... Sorry just the way i feel.... being in a place that you are accustomed to... and i don't 'like' your down days, but it is good to know there are others out there feeling the same , at time to time... it just is...
    Glad you are back safe and sound.. the snow will melt and Spring will arrive, it does, every year....

  12. I figure we'd never appreciate all the good days if we didn't have a few not so good ones as well. Fabulous photos - what a magical place you live in.
