The standing tree minus any leaves or sign of life, was surrounded by lush vegetation. On the other side of all the green was the St. Lawrence. I tried to capture the dozen or more ducks swimming along the shoreline but they were too far off, and I didn’t have my camera, being the driver of yesterday’s jaunt, I had not expected to be taking pictures, one should never make that assumption, I’ll eventually learn.
I tried to find another way closer to the water but the only “easy” way was to climb up a grassy embankment and get to the road, and then walk down to the bridge. By the time I parked and got to the bridge, they were specs in the distance. However that said, they were chatting and singing as they sailed down towards wherever they were heading. There were a lot of birds in the trees too, we just didn’t or couldn’t see them.
Flowers for you =^_^= may your week be a blissfully happy one, lots of sunshine and tranquil moments to ease you through a stress free week!
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.
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.
