More photos from Orillia.....

Here are some more photos from last week.  They are all taken down by the harbour front. That brown stuff should be grass.  Thanks to some much needed rain last week, it should look a bit greener, as my grass looked like that also.  I found this display to be very cheery, don't you think?


This was a closer look at one of the fishes.  Not sure what the plants are called to make them?

They had all these "boats" on display also.  The one in the front is a painting of the boat you can take a cruise on.  We have been on that boat and it was a lovely way to see the fine houses on the lake front and also very interesting.  There is more information here.
Now these boats were part of the 2011 Streets Alive Art Project, there is more information about them here


I have to say that Orillia really puts on an interesting display each year.  Also the hanging baskets were just gorgeous again.  It's really a lovely place to visit and a lot to see.  I know each time Jane and I go we discover something else.  Our next trip could/should be the end of this month, beginning of next, I think?

Also, where did the month of July go too?  It seems to have flown by?

It does look a very pretty town and I enjoyed the displays. The hanging baskets besides the obvious one of the Falls, are what I remember when I visited Niagara Falls several years ago. They were gorgeous! Lovely photos Gill.
