Suff I saw at Sheldon's Point today

It was a great day to walk in Sheldon's Point.
I see the "hours" sign has been posted - looks like the park will reopen soon.
Butterfly / moth? No matter - it was a nice sight.
The kitchen sink.
These abandoned building materials, sandstone and something else, always remind me of an old graveyard you'd see in the southern states.

Get in line for ice cream

The Pumpkin Patch on Manawagonish Road opened today  -  that's a sure-sign of summer around the corner.

CO-OP site update

This is a picture I took today of the site of the former Co-op on Fairville Blvd., across from Sobey's.
The Co-op building disappeared fast. Apparently there has been a buyer for the property, let's hope they have plans for an interesting addition to the westside retail corridor.
 April 17: Just reading on CHSJ news feed that Princess Auto will be moving into the Co-op site.

AIM's facility at the port

I thought I should check out the happenings at American Iron and Metal's lower westside facility as they have again been in the news; this time it's not about sources of electricity but the noise reducing practices they are using. It's definitely quite an impressive operation. I spoke to a neighbour of the facility this weekend and he said the noise level was quite high as testing was going on.  If what I have been told is correct, the company's plan is to spread out to encompass more space than they currently use.
