An Evening Walk by the Lake – Day 8

thanks to Becky B for hosting Walking Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/08/walking-squares-8/

Now that the time change occurred it’s getting darker sooner in the evenings. I headed out towards the lake which is only 100 m from my house and quickly took some shots of the city skyline of Toronto and then turned around and I got shots of the sunset. Some of you may remember that less than a week ago you couldn’t see the city because of the fog.

It wasn’t even 5:30 when I started back home and it was already dark.

Whatsoever Is Lovely Challenge – July 17, 2022

….thanks to Xingfu Mama for hosting the Whatsoever is Lovely Challenge https://xingfumama.blog/2022/07/17/whatsoever-is-lovely-challenge-2022-week-28/

This weekend I finally opened my cottage. It is truly my special place. I normally open sooner but I was so busy with my art show that this was the first opportunity I had to go up with my daughter. Opening up is always a big job and I knew that I couldn’t do it on my own so having Andrea with me made the whole process so much easier and more fun. Here are a few images from the north shore at Big Sand Bay and from the dock.

The Boats are Back in the Water

you know that summer is not far off when the sail boats at the yacht club are back in the water

I was pleasantly surprised when I walked by the yacht club earlier in the week to see that the boats had been taken out of storage and returned to the water. A couple of days later I saw a boat sailing by the park at the end of our street and a minute later I noticed a person on a paddle board making his away across the frigid waters, a little closer to shore. Brrrr…..even with the warming of the sun that day I knew that if he fell off the board into Lake Ontario it would be shockingly cold. I guess that’s why paddle boarders wear wet suits.

My Morning Tuesday Walk

…..a little windy and cooler today

Despite the chilly winds, especially when the clouds pass over the sun, it was a beautiful morning for a walk and taking photos. I love the colour of the sky on mornings like this and how it reflects onto the water. Let me take you on my walk through my photos.
