It takes us about four (4) hours (yes four) to get from our place to visit Joe's Mom in Killam. Ergo, it takes about four hours to get from Killam back to our place, which makes an eight hour day for us in the car plus visiting time. It's a long day.
To make things a bit more interesting on the way home this trip, we took a secondary highway for part of the way. As you will see - it was a beautiful evening with still enough light to take some pix.
This is the plumbing shop in Killam - it's on the main highway running through town, so hard to miss. Some creative plumbing/gardening happening here!
The lighting was great for the fields and the colours were excellent - I don't think the pix do it justice, but you get the idea.
We went across the highway to this spot. You can see the stripping shovel in the distance. This is a very pretty little spot off the highway, so you might be surprised to learn that it is reclaimed from a coal strip mine. Looks pretty nice, eh?
The dragline in the distance.
