Some people might think it's tame, but it's been a long road to find my own Great Outdoors - and now I live surrounded by it. I grew up country, and something in my heart always knew I'd return to my roots - even though Ontario is 3000 miles from my British hometown.
Right outside my door, there's a wealth of wildlife living in swampland - usually small and friendly, but there are moose, bear, deer, raccons, fishers, coyotes.... Fortunately, they're pretty shy, so mostly on my walks I make do with the pretty buttertflies, snakes, turtles, wild turkeys and other birds.
My Great Outdoors has its own secret places, perfect for a writer.
And there's always a welcoming friend on the doorstep
And a pretty spot to relax with a friend after a gruelling chapter.....
