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.

Pink Clouds Before the Storm

….we’ve been waiting all day for the snow to start

A major snowstorm is heading our way. In fact it started about three hours ago and is suppose to continue all night and well into the morning. When I went out this evening for a walk I was beginning to wonder if the snow was actually coming because there were very few clouds in the sky. On my way back home, however, I noticed these amazing pink clouds in the western sky as the sun was setting.

Last Night’s Sunset

….when I saw it through my bedroom window I knew it was special

I quickly threw on my coat, put on my hat and gloves and ran out the door. I wish I had added a scarf but I walked quickly to the park and then headed west to 10th Street. I was trying to capture as many angles of the sunset as I could. I knew that it wouldn’t last long and the brisk walk helped keep me warm. Here is what I managed to capture.
