Which Way Photo Challenge

Yesterday on our walk along the Waterfront Trail in Hamilton, my camera was working overtime. It was such a lovely day.

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – March 30, 2018

…..not as late as last week’s Challenge

Thanks Cee for hosting the Which Way Photo Challenge. Your challenges always challenge me to look for the unusual and sometimes mundane subjects. Here are a few shots that I took on my walk a few days ago.

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – March 23, 2018

….I know I’m a bit late on this one but today seemed a good day to post photos from last week

Thanks to Cee for hosting the Which Way Photo Challenge. It’s been dreary and wet all day today and what a better time to post my sunny photos from last week when my husband, daughter and I took Olive for a walk to High Park. We walked along Bloor Street, past fruit markets, through tunnels and down a descending sidewalk towards the park entrance.

Once in the park we headed towards the off leash area where we could let Olive run free. She loved it. I love the off leash area in High Park because it is made up of fenced in trails and if you’re a walker it’s a great way to get in some steps and fresh air.

It was a great day. On the way back we walked down hill, then up hill, back through the tunnel and then we took a short cut up a flight of stairs which took us up the the rail path. All in all I clocked over 15 000 steps that day.

March Square – A Circle Within a Square

….thanks to Becky B for hosting March Square

It’s amazing how a medallion like this can dress up the dreariest of fences. It certainly caught my eye as I was walking home from the library. IMG_1274

More Signs that Spring is Here

….even though it’s still March and spring is officially here I say this with some trepidation

The sun is high in the sky, people are catching some rays on park benches, a few brave souls are playing tennis and we’ve started cooking outdoors again.P1050952

Weather for the Dogs (and their owners)

…..spring like conditions continue in the Northern Hemisphere

The sun has come out and the temperatures have climbed well above freezing for more than a week now and it looks like will continue for another week or more. On Sunday my husband and I drove to High Park and took a nice long walk in the off leash area where dogs and their owners can walk, run and play. Earlier in the day I walked in the neighbourhood, where I also came across some dogs and lots of swans.

In High Park there were a lot more people and dogs and the walk was quite challenging due to the steep hill at the end of the walk. When you start downhill you know that at some point you have to go up again.

Is Spring Just Around the Corner?

…..don’t get your hopes up

This past weekend we’ve seen warmer temperatures, thawing snow, rain and grey skies. Certainly signs that spring can’t be too far off but I’m sure winter is not finished with us just yet. Here are a few photos that might give you hope that spring is just around the corner.
