A bee, hard at work

Today I went 28km (fur­ther than I thought) and got pho­tos of a bee at work, a cou­ple of dead trees, and a minia­ture river­side inuksuk.

What a difference another day makes

The squirrel checks out the dumpster

Anoth­er day, anoth­er bunch of garage demolition.

Below: some more com­par­i­son photos

The garage with its roof down

And begin­ning to end.

The garage, roof still intact

There’s still some work to do—mostly cleanup—but we got a lot done in a few days. Huge thanks to Kevin, who lent his exper­tise, his mus­cles, and his chain­saw to the removal of the roof.

After, I sat in the yard and took a few more art­sy photos.
