Day 25 – Walking by the Marina

….thanks to Becky B for hosting Walking Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/25/walking-squares-25/

The boats have all been put away for the winter. There are only the empty docks and abandoned slips while the boats sit on dry land, wrapped in white vacuumed sealed wraps. The walk, nonetheless is still pleasant and I am reminded that colder days are yet to come.

Walking in the Fog – November 24, 2022

thanks to Becky B for hosting Walking Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/24/walking-squares-24/

Check out Becky’s post today. It’s perfect for my challenge Thursday Trios.

This is the second time in one month that we’re experiencing dense fog over the city. It was only suppose to last a couple of hours but here it is 12 hours later and it’s still hanging over the neighbourhood.

A Different View of the Lake – November 23, 2022

In the summer this beach is busy with sunbathers, stone skippers and dog walkers. Yesterday most walkers stayed on the walkway.

Walking Through Col. Sam Smith Park

….thanks to Becky B for hosting Walking Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/22/walking-squares-22/

I love this park but I realized recently that I haven’t ventured out this far in awhile. Today I decided it was time to get back here and explore some of my favourite places. As I got closer to the pond I was actually shocked at how low the water level was. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it like this.

Snow Clouds over Buffalo – November 19, 2022

thanks to Becky B. for hosting Walking Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/19/walking-squares-19/

On the north west shore of Lake Ontario, where we live we can see across the lake on a very clear day and see the skyline of some New York cities and towns. As you may have heard, Buffalo is having record setting amounts of snow which is crippling the folks that live there and it’s still snowing. Last evening I took a walk to the shoreline and captured these shots of snow clouds hovering over the lake. Luckily for us the winds are pushing the clouds clear of Toronto.

A friend of ours posted photos from Fort Erie which is directly across from Buffalo on the north side of Lake Erie and there was literally a wall of snow coming down over the city.

Walking Through the Subway – November 18, 2022

….thanks to Becky B for hosting Walking Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/18/walking-squares-18/

It’s not unusual to see birds flying over the tracks and through the tunnels in the subway but seeing this pigeon was a first for me.

A Cold Walk Downtown – November 17, 2022

….Thanks to Becky B for hosting Walking Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/17/walking-squares-17/

My husband came home from the hospital yesterday. I wasn’t planning on going to the concert that I had tickets for but he didn’t want me to miss it. When I woke up this morning I was still in the mindset of not going but then a good friend, who is one of the organizers called me to see if I could help them out. They had a bit of an emergency and I couldn’t say no.

I normally love this walk after I get off the subway but I have to admit that I do prefer it when the weather is warmer nut it’s still picturesque nonetheless.

The emergency was resolved by the time I got there so I was able to enjoy a wonderful concert.

It was just a couple of days ago I was posting photos of autumn leaves and fall colours. Yesterday and today we woke up to this.

Now that Hallowe’en is officially behind us the Christmas decorations in the neighbourhood are just beginning to appear on the front lawns. This morning we had our first snow and it’s still snowing as I write this.
