SO HERE WE ARE ON THE FIRST DAY OF ANOTHER YEAR

 A SHORELINE DOGGY WALK AT GODERICH’S ROTARY COVE THIS MORNING

Our gloriously orange sunrise only lasted about fifteen minutes before it was replaced by a standard slate-gray sky.  With a slight drizzle in the air, Pheebs and I headed back to Goderich again.  I was hoping to find a replacement hanging light-type socket.  I’ve had trouble with the light socket in the shade that hangs over our sunroom computer desk for a few years now so it was time to replace it.  Of course, it being the day after New Year all the stores were closed.  I hadn’t thought about that.  Oh well, down to the harbor we went and because it wasn’t too bad of a morning and winds were calm, we decided to take a walk in the doggy walking area at Rotary Cove.

WHEN I SAW THAT CONCRETE THING I KNEW THE LAKE HURON WATER LEVEL WAS LOW BECAUSE I HAD NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE…..IT IS NORMALLY UNDERWATER

 I DON’T KNOW IF SOMETHING IS BURIED HERE OR IF IT IS SOME KIND OF MEMORIAL

Restoration of the eroding bank along the shoreline is still a work in progress although halted for the winter it will likely resume in the Spring.  Despite the water level being covered in ice and snow, I could plainly see how low the level of the lake is compared to the high water levels that did all the damage along the shoreline a couple years ago.

 THESE LARGE BOULDERS BROUGHT IN LAST YEAR WILL BE USED IN THE ONGOING BANK RESTORATION

It felt good to get my legs moving again and we walked a little farther than we usually do in that area.  Of course, by the time we arrived back at the Jeep my right leg was giving me trouble again.  If this keeps up I’m going to have to go down to the Corner Leg Store and get me a new one.

 AND IT LOOKS LIKE THIS GODERICH RESIDENT IS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE MILD JANUARY WEATHER AND GETTING A JUMP START ON THE SPRING CLEAN-UP

So, here we are on the first day of another New Year.  No great plans, no resolutions, and no unrealistic hopes, dreams, or immediate zany speculations.  Just our usual one-day-at-a-time thing putting one foot in front of the other and doing the best we can for another day.  So bring it on 2023 and chase us like the wind all the way to 2024.

GROANER’S CORNER:((  A drunken Irishman gets on a train and asks the conductor how long the trip is between Limerick to Cork.  “About two hours,” says the conductor.  “Okay,” says the drunkard, “then how long is the trip between Cork to Limerick?”  The irate conductor says to the drunk, “It’s still about two hours, laddie. Why’d ya think there’d be a difference?”  “Well,” says the drunk, “it’s only a week between Christmas and New Year’s, but it’s a helluva long time between New Year’s and Christmas!”
