Long Sault Parkway – a surprise .. this was not where we were heading, but it is where we ended up.. The Long Sault Parkway is a series of 11 island that were created from high points of land after the flooding of the St. Lawrence river during the construction of the Seaway in 1950’s. for more info. on the Long Sault Parkway visit https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_Sault_Parkway
We drove the whole 10.1 kilometers (6.3 miles) then continued on to Preston and highway 416 to get back to Ottawa. We couldn’t have had a better day for a drive. It was hot, but walking along pathways we found that took us along the banks of the St. Lawrence, offered up wonderful breezes off the water. We saw lots of water =^_^= Stopped at more than one beach!
Being a “vacation” day, we treated ourselves to hot fries from a chip truck, they also served up the most wonderful hamburgers.. and yes, we indulged.. DELICIOUS… Dessert – salted caramel ice capp.!!!! yes.. its true !!!!!! (yes from Tim Hortons)
You’re happy, I’m happy. Have the mindset of “good for you, good for me”. Express yourself in a way that makes others happy.
Have a wonderful Thursday everyone… enjoy all the fantastic and wonderful doors you will visit today!

A little fun in the wee hours, however, my wish is that you have the most stunning day ever. Whatever, where-ever live the moment, cherish the day. Reach out and share a smile, make a phone call, say Thank YOU. I am grateful, I say it to you time and time again, … you bring much into my life. Distance is an illusion when it comes to “friendships”.. in this age of “internet” we have discovered ways to share thoughts, visions, stories, and .. list is endless, we have much to be thankful for.
Enjoy, find and do what makes you happy! Make memories.
from the pictures, all looks stark and bare – however that is not what was, what could not be capture in the frame, were the sounds of children laughing, crying out in glee at their discoveries. The happy songs of the chickadees that were swooping and landing with graceful delight at the offered treats.
I captured the trees in the late autumn wardrobes, as they patiently waited for the forecasted snow. There were people all around, dressed for the November chill, colourful jackets and scarves could be seen dotting the skyline as they emerged from their cars in the parking lot some yards away.
It was a happy day, everyone knew what was coming this way. You could feel the icy fingers of the teasing taunting wind… oh yes… snow would be here later that day.*
One should never assume that what you see at first glance, is what IS.
It is easy to misinterpret the situation and jump to conclusions. Always have a humble attitude and double check to make sure.

It is only Natural that you are different from others. Each of us has our own way of thinking and our own individual lifestyle. That’s what makes life interesting.

Good Morning peelistas, Bom dia amigos! Do you ever feel that you are on your own path, not part of the “happening”… We are all unique! that is the beauty of being part of this Universe. My Mom used to make these little cuddly “bears” for charity. You would see her knitting away whenever she sat down to watch the telly. It was her “happy” place. The piglet I think was a gift to her.
A gentle reminder –
You can learn from anyone. There is a limitation to your own knowledge and experience. Listen carefully and sincerely to others’ opinions.

We don’t have to agree, but we can listen, and do our best to understand, why and how someone got to that “place”… We are all ONE. Love is the thread that will link us together… always!
Strive to overcome obstacles by changing your mind-frame. Things don’t always go as planned. When that happens, try changing how you look at the situation or how you are doing things. the outcome is in your hands.
Your surroundings are a reflection of you. a person who constantly worries will always find things to worry about. An optimistic person will attract happiness, A kind person will always be blessed with kindness in return.

The dragon who is yet unnamed, came calling, actually jumped out at me, giving me cause to pause. “Your mission should you accept, is to prepare me for travel, for I have a destination….’ I ask you.. how could I refuse, we have done, as was requested…. Soon she/he will leave my home for his/her final destination.
Flu shot today.. must get ready. Take good care dear friends, stay safe,
