Well here we are. It is October already!! Wow! All the fall colours are here. We have been driving around videoing all the bits and pieces of our little piece of Heavenly real estate area. You will have to check it out. We have recorded some really neat places. Like the fishing Islands on Lake Huron, which are quickly becoming the non fishing, non islands. We were there and could just about walk to them. If the water was not soooo cold we would have. Someone drove their jeep right through the water, so it can not be that deep. We also were checking out the salmon jumping up and over the Sauble falls. WOW! Now that is cool. The power and determination these fish have is incredible. They must have a real keen built in GPS system. God designed them well. There is a lot of water running over the falls right now. We also checked out the Coran ruins at Spirit Rock, just outside of Wiarton. The ruins are really interesting . . . the size of the cut stone they used and how heavy the stone must have been. They also did not have the equipment that we have today to do all the heavy lifting. Also what was really interesting was the steel spiral stair case the led us down over the cliffs. We were about 150- 200 feet above the Bay at Wiarton. Look for the video on our website under current videos on the right side of this page. Would you like a really scenic drive that will take you about 2 to 3 hours round trip? Well, start in Collingwood head west on Hwy 26 towards Thornbury. Just past the mountain and Craigleith provincial park turn left on Grey road 40 towards Walters falls, continue on that until you come to Hwy 10. Then turn left and head south. Go into Markdale. At the lights turn left (the only stop lights).This goes east. Then turn right onto cty road 30 and follow to the stop sign, turn right, this is still 30, go to the next street and turn left, this is still 30. Go down the really big hill. Follow this to the stop sign at County road 13. Then turn right and go up the big long hill into Eugenia. Then turn left onto the 8th line on the edge of the village of Eugenia. This goes east. Travel until you come to the stop sign in Feversham. Go straight through. Keep going until you come to a T in the road, this is the 10 th line. turn right. Take this road until you come to the next T in the road and turn left this is county road 31. Then go for about 500 meters and turn right onto county road 91 and go east. Go down the big hill and this takes you into Duntroon and you can go straight to stayner or left to Collingwood.
