This is what Boucle and I wanted to see when we went out on our excursion on Saturday.

The Scarborough Bluffs were formed 12,000 years ago.  They are about  60 metres, or about 200 feet high and made of hardened sand, not rock.  They stretch along the shore of Lake Ontario for about 15 kilometres, which is about 10 miles.

If you look closely at the beach right under the bluffs, you will see little people – for a sense of the scale.  The first photo I posted, yesterday’s post, was from the top of the bluffs  – looking down.

…beautiful Lake Ontario………

…view…. standing on the top of the Bluffs…… to Lake Ontario

Yesterday, Boucle and I visited the Scarborough Bluffs on the shores of Lake Ontario.

This is standing right on the top of the bluffs, you can see that grey brown sandy peak on the lower left of the photo.  That is the peak of the bluffs.   It is a shear sandy drop.  We were behind a fence.  Even that close it is unnerving.

The bluffs were formed over 12,000 years ago from sediment and wind from the lake.  They are 60 metres high, about 200 feet.

Below, is the Scarborough Bluffs Marina and park.  Which we visited and I will post a photo of the bluffs soon from that point of view.

What a view we had to Lake Ontario on a gorgeous autumn day……..

I attended a Board of Trade meeting today and was very lucky to get a front row seat, at a table on the side.

This is our Prime Minister, the Rt. Honorable Prime Minister Stephen Harper laughing at a joke.  I think this joke was about accountants and tax laws.  And the whole room laughed too and  thought it was very funny, including me.

It is my favorite picture of the Prime Minister that I took from today because he is so relaxed in it.
