Sunday Serenity: Scots Stonework, Southern Ontario

**There is a short audio clip above this note to accompany today’s post.  Thank you for listening!

I wrote a post last week about my charming little hometown in Canada:  Meandering Grand River, Southern Ontario, and how the stone structures of an era long ago are still incorporated into the landscape. Today’s post is another photo showing more original stonework.

        The pace of life seems much slower in your hometown Cher. You must miss it.

        It really is, John. Although it’s grown a lot over the years. I moved to the U.S. from Winnipeg, which is a city of about 700,000 and hadn’t lived in my home town for a long time. But I do miss the slower pace (and more importantly family and friends that live there). It was great to have people say hi when you walk by, that’s for sure! 🙂 Cher xo

        Isn’t it amazing how large cities seem to make people less friendly? They are not nearly as friendly here compared to my little Michigan town…

        Oh it really is, John. That doesn’t surprise me. I think there is more of a sense of community in smaller places. Well, you are an honorary Canadian as you know! 😉 Cher xo

    I love this town. There are not so much high builidings. It looks more on Holland. We have in the province Groningen also straight rivers, to bring goods over water. And the Scottish stones I love them. They are rough and beautiful by their structure. Here in the Netherlands starts the cold yesterday. In Leeuwarden it was in the night 10 degrees below zero. That is very cold for us. And this night was it 8 degrees below zero. The winter starts now well. Maybe we have the 11 town skatetour. I wish you a nice day Cher.

    Hello Cher, thank you for this beautiful view of the straight river and the wonderful stones besides this river. I love this town It likes more on Holland. But the Scottish stones are wonderful by this structure and they are rough. Here in the province Groningen the rivers are straight also. With the same aim. Because they are made to bring peat over the river.The buildings like more as in Holland. Here it is very cold also. In Leeuwarden was it on Sunday night 10 degrees below zero and this night 8 degrees below zero. That is very cold for us. The winter begins well. I wish you a fine day.

    I want to anwer on your questions Cher. Yes ware in winter, and you are also. But many people are glad to skate on the ice. And the rivers in the provence Groningen have the same aim as with you. I wish you a nice winter time. We have not so hard as people in Austria and in Switzerland. There has fallen much snow . It is sometimes dangerous there, also.

      Yes, it is always nice to be able to skate on the river, isn’t it, Annie? Oh, I didn’t know about Austria and Switzerland getting a lot of snow. Are they having some avalanches? Thank you, Annie! Cher xo
