#The Water in Winter – Wordless Wednesday

Let your photos(s) tell your story.

Seagulls hanging out on the river…
Two swans a swimming on Valentine’s Day…
The beach in winter…
is closed….but it’s nice to see the blue sky.
Wish these were sand dunes but they’re frozen waves covered with snow….
Which you’re not supposed to climb on…..
And lastly, it wouldn’t be a Canadian winter without hockey on the pond!

      Hi Anne…..I just posted a comment below my blog talking about the weather. I’ve never seen mounds of snow like that before in the winter and thought the city works department might have dumped it there to prevent erosion on the beach which has been a major problem the last few years, but I was told they were waves that had frozen to ice and then we had a ton of snow after. We had one big storm with blustery winds so I expect they froze then, and then the snow piled on top kept them that way. It was an unusual sight!

    These photos were taken last Sunday, except the first two which are from Feb. 14. Since I blogged early February, about what a mild winter we were having, we’d had three weeks of below freezing temps and tons of snow. See I jinxed it! The beach was busy as it was a beautiful winter’s day, with lots of people walking on the nature trails in the adjacent park, but while we were there an ambulance had to be called for someone who had fallen. We watched as a woman was loaded onto a stretcher and taken away by the paramedics, and I wondered if she had slipped and broken a hip or had stood on one of the frozen wave dunes as they can collapse?

      I don’t take a lot of pictures in the winter, and the sun was so bright on Sunday and the snow so blinding that it was just point and shoot and hope for the best. I took these mostly on my old digital camera, as I couldn’t even see the camera icon/button on the cell phone.

    The sky is just an amazing blue and against the dunes of snow, makes it look all the more amazing. At least the swans struck a pose for you on Valentine’s Day. This post looks like it was a peaceful trip to the shore.

      I was a just point and shoot day, as the sun was so bright I couldn’t see to frame with the digital camera and I couldn’t see the icon to click with the cell phone camera. These were taken last Sunday when we still had lots of snow. A whole lot of melting going on now – 50 when I walked today – felt like spring. I had a productive day, baked my bread for next weeks blog – it turned out okay for a first attempt. Cleaned out all the papers on my desk, a years worth of accumulation….am in a spring cleaning mood. Hope you are having a good weekend!

        That is a problem with the point-and-shoot camera … if it’s sunny, you only see yourself. The only drawback, otherwise it is good as you don’t have to hold it up so close to your face, a blessing now with COVID when you don’t want to fumble around your face. We have lots of melting too from that early rain today and all week’s warmth. I went later than usual as I worked on tax stuff all morning til 2:00 p.m. Tomorrow I’ll try and do the chart that goes with it to take to the tax guy. The weather is great, tomorrow morning some fog and some rain at 10:00 – have to plan my walk carefully. You did well with your Spring cleaning. I got rid of some papers too – I really need to shred though. I am going to finish comments and get to bed, but for the first time since Christmas Day, I am all caught up in Reader!
