Point Pelee Between Two Lighthouses

Canada’s most southern tip, Point Pelee is a most interesting, and historical place to visit as is Pelee Island where I went today. This was taken while waiting to depart for said island aboard the ferry.

2012 Photo Challenge – Twoonie

Twoonie

When our $2.00 bills here in Canada stopped being produced, the Twoonie was introduced. Some people tried to get the “beary” name for it instead, but that didn’t stick. Twoonie sounds better and rolls off the tongue a bit better. The Twoonie above is one of the newer ones introduced this year that features more anti-counterfeit measures. Although, not sure anyone really tired to counterfeit the Twoonie in the first place!

Canadian Skies

The clouds looked so amazing today against the blue sky that I had to use them as a photo challenge photo. Looks as though it’s really windy way up there the way the clouds are painted across the sky.

Canadian Quarter

Contrary to popular belief, it is actually a caribou on the Canadian Quarter, not a moose. Although, the two are cousins of sorts.

Hobomok Skipper Butterfly

A butterfly of Canada, this Hobomok Skipper takes a sip of nectar from a cone flower in the backyard. First time I have ever seen these tiny butterflies and two of them were flitting around the flowers! So cute!
