Who is ready for spring? This was not the harshest of winters to live through however it did feel like the longest due to the pandemic. We are hardy people and have gotten through it – yay! The Oxford English Dictionary says a pastime is “a diversion or recreation which serves to pass the time agreeably; an activity done for pleasure rather than work…”. That kind of sums up the scene here. Grab a hot chocolate, sit in the sun, and watch the ice melt.

Comet NEOWISE C/2020 F3 Passing By Earth
Comet NEOWISE was discovered only in March of this year using the Neowise space telescope. Astronomers have determined its route brings it back to Earth in roughly 7,000 more years – really??? Here we are July 24, one day after it’s closest position to our planet, with a perfectly clear sky and no moon. I’m outside at 10pm scanning the sky with binoculars to find this comet and for the first half nothing… I had read it will appear below the Big Dipper and still nothing. More time passes and now its really dark and then BAM!! There it is and I can see it with the naked eye and with the binoculars… holy smoke that’s cool!

Thanksgiving weekend looking out toward Bigwin Island on Lake of Bays, from the Dorset public pier. Fall colors were at their peak, with spectacular reds, yellows, oranges, and deep purples. Another reason to love life in Canada!
