Stumped Saturday Again!



Just an old stump and when they cut down the dead tree, they've thankfully left the holy home!




Looks like lots of hungry wood peckers have lived here!


 This tree stump is located inside the Fingal Wildlife Refuge just west of Fingal, Ontario. This was the site of a Canadian Air Force training base and airport and they've torn down all the trappings and runways. Dick's dad trained here and it is odd to walk the paths that his father may have walked all those years ago.

Was this dead tree stump a spindly sapling when Harvey trained here? 


 Harvey is gone many years now, but they buried him with his uniform's cap and medals. He's much more alive in our thoughts as we walk the trails and pathways of this acreage than if we went to visit his grave.


 Happy Father's day everyone! Kiss and hug your dad if you've still got one. Mine's been gone since 1969 and Dick's died in 1999 but there isn't a day goes by that we don't think about them or remember them. Good men both and they did the best that they could for us and without question, loved us.


 You can't ask for anything more, can you?


These photographs were shot with my Nikon P-90 digital camera and downloaded directly from the camera and then to this blog. My aim is to take my reader along with me on the journey, so although I am aware of my framing of the shot, content and quality, I am most interested in sharing the experience.

So true, you can feel very close to people when you walk where they have walked. I really believe that.

You leave me stumped on Saturday again! And a fun visit it is, too. My dad left in 1979 but I do think of him, and even occasionally still dream about him. Happy Father's Day, Daddy!

Both entries were delightful. I love the bugs on the Queen Ann's Lace. And the tribute to your Dads was beautiful.
