Dam cold day to go outside! 

I knew it was going to be a cold one. But I’ve been cooped up way too long. Lots of issues with my back lately, but as we all know, a little fresh air tends to make everything better. 

I didn’t really intend to, but I wound up visiting a few local dams along the grand river. I snapped a few pics along the way to share! 

I started out with my dog, but I didn’t think it was going to be this cold, so he only joined me briefly before I dropped him off back home.

So cold I can't even look at you right now
He’s not a fan of the white stuff!

Don't like this icky white stuff
There's weird white stuff on my fur mum. Make it stop!

After dropping him off, I headed out to Paris. This town is known for being the prettiest little town in Ontario!

Rocky day

It’s a popular little spot for people canoeing down the Grand River. This has to be the biggest portage sign I’ve ever seen! No way you can miss this one!

Now that's a portage sign you can't miss

On my way home I stopped by the famous Paris shoe tree. I’ve seen it a million times but thought that I would stop for a picture to share with the rest of you. (There’s a geocache in there!)

Apparently it’s good luck to hang your old shoes on a shoe tree.  Who knew?

Let's go for a spin

Shoes aren’t always nailed to the tree anymore… Just left on the ground.

Or in the air!

Now what?

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
