This month I decided to brighten up my apartment by planting on my balcony. I planted petunias, marigolds, kale, strawberries, sweet peppers, calibrachoa, coleus, and this fuzzy blue thing that I can no longer identify because the tag blew away.

Today I cycled up the Old Goulais Bay Road, up the Mile Hill, and then down Old Trout Lake Road, in total 73.6 km. Much of the ride was on washed out gravel roads. The black flies and mosquitoes were pretty intense.

Yesterday I went on a cycling adventure north of Searchmont along Achigan Creek. I explored a couple of small waterfalls. It was an enjoyable day. The flies were healthy though.

Here's a nice brook trout (aka speckled trout) that I caught this spring. It's the largest one I've ever caught. I got two meals out of it. I enjoy pan frying trout with garlic powder, salt, and pepper with some lemon juice squeezed on after frying.
