Though I imagine some people might disagree. I don't exactly know why... I mean, what's wrong with winter?
I have some views of the best of all seasons today. This is Southminster United Church late in the afternoon.
This ravine can be found downtown near the War Museum and the Firefighters Memorial. Part of the Ottawa River is diverted upstream through here, rejoining the main body of the river further down. The frozen water below has a white water course set through here for kayakers in warmer weather.
This is a store window that some of you might remember. Boogie & Birdie sells eclectic curiosities, and the store staff tend to decorate the front window with some of the stuffed animals they keep inside. At present, the critters are wearing scarves and hats.
Here we have the Rideau River at Billings Bridge, on two separate days. The water below the bridge tends to stay open through the winter, so it's a haven for those ducks who choose to stay; they also get fed by some of the locals.
This was on the second day. Someone had brought bird food down to the ice, and the ducks were taking to it with much chatter. There's actually a Canada goose among them. I guess he or she decided to stay here over the winter, which is a rare thing.
