Last Day of Summer – Sept. 20, 2021

…..enjoying a warm and sunny day at Marie Curtis Park

Today we experienced a nice warm summer day; the last one of the season. Normally this time of year the average temperature is about 20 degrees celsius but we hit 23 and people definitely took advantage of it.

When I arrived at the park school had just dismissed its students and I noticed several children were in the playground and splash pad. Cyclists, senior citizens and dog walkers were also enjoying this great weather.

Tree Square – Lone Remnant on the Beach

A Landmark – July 19

….thanks to Becky B for hosting Tree Square for the month of July https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/07/19/tree-square-19/

The road leading to our cottage is easy to spot from the beach because of an old tree that once housed a. tree house for the kids. Over the years the boards disappeared and slowly the tree started to die off. All that remains to this day is this elongated stump. No one wants to remove it.

Saturday Sculpture – Someone Was Very Busy This Week

….thanks to Susan Kelly from No Fixed Plans for hosting Saturday Sculpture https://nofixedplans5.wordpress.com/2021/05/15/sculpture-saturday-31/

I try to get out and walk every day and at least once a week I walk over to Col. Sam Smith Park where there are these wonderful rocky beaches where one can see the city skyline of Toronto off in the distance. Over the years people have played with the rocks and bricks and created interesting sculptures and installation art on these rocky shore. They stay up for awhile and then they usually disappear.

Yesterday I observed not one or two of these rock sculpture but literally dozens of them that were not there last week. Some were very tall and others shorter and some were decorated with coloured rice but each one was different.
