Walking Along the Shore
Photos: April 26, 2016
While the temperatures have been a bit below normal, the sun has graced us with its presence. A friend of mine and I walked along the water's edge from Lasalle through Lachine. We were accompanied by the song of birds.
Everywhere you could see signs of spring taking hold. There is a delicacy in the emerging leaves; they wear the lighter shades of their colour palette, slowly darkening as they grow full.
There is a vibrancy and rhythm to spring - the very name implies action.
While I felt energized, not all creatures did. This fellow seemed quite content to just lie there and watch us.
There was lots of action up high in a tree. This squirrel hopped from branch to branch feasting on the new growth.
Another day I'll sit and gaze out at the water. But for now I love the feeling of walking in spring.
