"What did the wife of the soldier get
From Brussels, the Belgian town?
From Brussels she got the delicate lace
Oh! the charm and the grace of the delicate lace
That she got from the Belgian town"

The Eternal Maiden

"The Guelph Radial Trail runs northeast from Guelph along an abandoned electric railway route to meet the Bruce Trail at Limehouse. The Speed River Trail follows the river southwest to Cambridge: this trail becomes very wet after heavy rain. Many glacial features, including eskers, drumlins, and moraines, add interest to these pleasant and easy trails."

Eugenia Falls

The falls itself is rather meagre since most of the water has been diverted to to a hydroelectric plant which has been generating electricity since around 1895. A popular and pretty area in the Beaver Valley.

Near Epping Lookout

This is the week for fall colours in the Beaver Valley. Check out Epping Lookout Conservation Area on brow of the Niagara Escarpment with a great view of the Beaver Valley. The Bruce Trail runs through here and there is a historical plaque dedicated to the naturalist John Muir who spent two years in this area before heading off to the US where he founded the Sierra Club and became the father of the conservation movement.

it's time for pumpkin pie

Pumpkins are a fruit which originated in Central America. Some people eat the flowers. Some recommended them for removing freckles and curing snake bites. Some love them in pie. Like me.
