Good dark and early almost morning from damp Kingston, Ontario. It's 21C now after a 30C day. Later it will hit just 22C with showers. Yesterday's predicted showers held off to allow us to visit the Tall Ships in Brockville, east of here. It was crowded, with an especially long lineup for the Trinidad, a "nao" - much smaller than a galleon, but the main attraction. It's here from Spain. We (myself, the Mrs., and granddaughter) had passports which allowed one to board. Boats were of various sizes, from the long Empire Sandy to the small, recently built Mimi Jane. Also visible were the F-86 Sabre, the railroad tunnel under downtown, and reenactors firing their muskets. Theodore Tugboat (Theodore Too) was there, too. Golf carts whisked people from parking lots to Blockhouse Island. Here are some things I photographed.

Have a great day! (Sail ho!)

Good morning from Sweden. The temperature will rise to 30 C or more today. I got up early to do some gardening work before the the sun comes.

Have a marvelous Monday everyone. It’s a pretty morning here in Lowell but heavy thunderstorms are supposed to be on the way.

Yesterday, my son an I took a trolley ride and cotton mill tour. The trolley we rode originally saw service in New Orleans - the destination sign says, “Desire”. The machinery is a regulator for a water turbine in one of the old mills. The large object in the back is one of the turbines. These used leather belts to power looms throughout the huge mill buildings.

G’mornin’ everybody….. a fine sunny day in store here in SW Alberta.
Some “Sentinels of the Prairie”... restored - looks like the railway has long ago been torn up.
