We went on a cycling adventure in Prince Edward County via bicycle today. At a winery, I snapped this shot, a little old (milk house of a dairy farm) meets new (converted to a winery tasting room and restaurant with a satellite link). We headed to the beach with a few stops at wineries and got poured on there. After that, we cycled back to Wellington, and got poured on while en route again! We topped off the afternoon with a nice meal at a new restaurant with friendly owners who didn’t mind damp patrons.

Dry Understory

The forest is really dry and all the understory plants are getting crisp. We cycled on the single track and the road allowances today. Later I walked in the creek (and saw leaves on a rock).

I walked in the creek this afternoon and took photos of many ebony jewelwings (Calopteryx maculata) flitting among the shrubs.

This yellow-banded underwing moth (Lepidoptera: Noctuoidea: Erebidae: Catocala cerogama) was banging at the window in the night.

Even though it’s dry, my garden continues to grow a bit. And it’s good to cool my feet in the creek while taking photos when it’s so hot. We then picked a few blueberries and then went to Trenton for dinner.
