My Canadian bike trip through Ontario continues with this set, and here I come across an abandoned church building; and had to think that the only constant is that Christ remains with His people…despite having left this church building behind.
A picture of my bike with the tent pitched for the night; this tent was excellent for a solo bike trip.
The people of Canada were just as generous and gracious towards me on this bike trip, as the the people in the U.S. and U.K. were on my other trips.
I had difficulty on my bike trip through France because I couldn’t communicate with anyone; which was my fault…not theirs.
I would love to renovate the little stone house without the roof on it, shown in the previous picture; it has so much potential to become a picture perfect little cottage.
A sculpture of William Shakespeare in the beautiful town of Stratford, Ontario; check it out at: welcometostratford.com.
Black swans along the shoreline at Victoria Lake in Stratford, Ontario; I would later live near Stratford-upon-Avon, in England.
My bike sits alongside an Amish horse and buggy; demonstrating two very honest ways to travel through the countryside.
Henry David Thoreau said, “As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler…” meaning that a simple life does away with much more than possessions, it unclutters your thinking as well.
Thoreau continues, “…solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.”
What appears to be “empty” in a quiet life, is really an overflowing of abundance…of things as of yet undiscovered; here I photograph and talk with this Amish horse.
A view of Lake Huron from Pinery Provincial Park, just down the coast from Grand Bend, Ontario, Canada.
Lake Huron was beautiful to look at from the Ontario side of the lake; and out there beyond the horizon is America.
The beach at Pinery Provincial Park was natural, scenic and undisturbed; and made from smooth little pebbles.
My camera lens peers through the window of an abandoned house, looking out towards my bike parked along the road.
The top window pane frames my bike, and captures the beautiful spring sunshine that fills the yard outside.
On closer examination, my bike awaits my return for new and undiscovered sights and adventures down the highway.
The lower pane frames a pure and tranquil natural scene of a simple field basking in the sunshine.
A garden grows ever so patiently; waiting for the frost to stay away and for the warmth of spring to arrive.
A view of my campsite in an outbuilding along the way; I kept a log book detailing my travels and the generosity of the Canadian people towards me on this trip, that I’ll later chronicle in my autobiography.
