A morning walk


I walk everywhere. I have always walked. I have a drivers licence but I don't own a car and find if I really need one one is available. I think it's that need for connection to the earth that keeps me on my feet.

This morning as I went about my business a fog lay over the inlet. There was a feeling of spring in the air, new bird song and the warmth of the morning sun burning off the fog. I stopped and had coffee on the deck of Queen B's Cafe and watched the fog pull back from the harbour. Bonnie's deck is usually a hive of activity but this morning it was just me and the boats...

As long as you can move, through walking and public transportation, and have everything at your fingertips: I agree whole heartedly, a car just weighs you down, and is a worry machine. It's good to be free.

What a lovely beginning to a day - being alone with such a calm scene, and the promise of spring.

I love the reflections of the masts on the water. I've always loved walking,too.

One thing I like about our condos is that we are within walking distance from most things we want or need. Of course it's a little different when we are up the lake. But then we aren't usually going out and about every day.

I got your comment about the "BOMB Squad" bridge builders. They have been so successful because they work with Forestry and the lumber companies. They also started the process when the mill was a bigger thing in town. - Margy

Nothing consequential to say; I just love your photography.

This looks so lovely and still.
I think you can see so much more when walking.
