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.

Day 4 – P.E.I, Confederation Bridge, Beaches and Red Soil

On Day 4 we took another road trip but this time we headed east toward Prince Edward Island.

There are two ways to get to the island by car. One is taking a ferry and the second is crossing over on the Confederation Bridge. The bridge is 12.5 kilometres long and is only two lanes. We were wondering what happens when the bridge needs repairs. Well just as those words left our mouths we started to slow down. Luckily it was not a busy day and the construction only affected about 50 metres of the bridge. Once we passed the workers traffic resumed at the normal rate.

The unfortunate part about travelling to PEI on November 1st is that most of the museums and points of interest have closed for the season but the plus side is that the place isn’t swarming with tourists.

Cows Creamery is a big deal in this part of the world and it was opened today.

PEI is famous for its red soil, potatoes and north shore beaches.

On the drive home we drove into the sun but we also experienced a beautiful sunset.

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.
