Along My Morning Route


While the weather is nice, I try to get outside and walk most mornings with my dog, Kobi. Our favourite way to go is along the ravine that backs onto our city subdivision.

Some of the plantings along the path are wild, like these roses may be. 

There are a few lovely little bridges like this one which leads from the street onto a footpath. Beneath it runs a small stream where I've seen a family of mallard ducks a few times.

This little robin was singing his heart out that morning.

Canada Geese are everywhere in springtime. Several families regularly swim together in this man-made lake.

Daisies are another wild flower that have sprouted up along the path.

Near the end of our journey: a nice place to rest and take in the view.

I'll be back G! Maybe even by next week. I've just been overwhelmed at work - still am, but I miss being creative.
