On Sunday we took a drive to Manitoulin Island - the main purpose was to check out the garden centres for some different plants. We had a great day, we did get some nice plants, had lunch out and poked around in fields and such taking pictures. It was a perfect day!!
Manitoulin Island is a Canadian lake island on Lake Huron, it's the largest fresh water lake island in the world. It is a very rural area - it's kind of like a different world when you cross the bridge, it reminds us of Prince Edward Island - the water, the land - it's all very similar!!
Take a look at the pictures and you can imagine you were there too.... some of these I already shared on Instagram.
I am just loving taking pictures of abandoned houses and barns lately -
These first three pictures were all on the same property. This must have been a good size farm, back in its day.
See what I mean - I'm hooked on taking pictures like this! I love my iPhone and all the filters on Instagram!!
I like unique names on road signs too!!
I had to get down in the ditch to get this picture - I have never seen yellow lady slippers before - they were beautiful - we just saw them in this one spot, so very different!
And, then it was lunch - one piece fish n chips for both of us - fresh whitefish and fresh cut fries - it was delicious!!
Like I said, we did go for plants, we brought a few home but this has to be the most different planter I have ever seen, it was the only one left, two ladies began admiring it when we took it down - oh, they wanted it, they didn't get it - I did!!
It is multi purpose, it can also be a hanging planter. Isn't it pretty? There are three planters full of flowers in it - it was only $25 - a great price, I thought!!!
Our little drive turned into an all day affair - it was a great day!!
