Oakville - Just a Glimpse For You

 We wandered further along the Lake Ontario Coast to Oakville and found that the beaches there were very stoney, with not much sand.  Pretty cool, as the stones were very smooth and seemed to be made of a wide variety of rock - sandstone-like pieces and slate-y pieces.  The sound as we picked over it all was fun . . . sort of like what you'd get gently pushing arm-loads of terra-cotta pots into a shallow pit.  It reminded me of that scene from Harry Potter where he's being pursued over a slate roof by a dragon, whose talons crush the tiles as she grips the roof.

But of course, the atmosphere during this particular manifestation of that sound was a great deal less exciting.  :-)

Seemed odd to watch Swans doing something other than  gliding along with necks arched gracefully, looking gorgeous.  Everybody's gotta' eat!

Our handy zoom lens allowed us to catch these goslings on film,
without death threats from the parents.

Kitty is still with us, as you can see.
