Bright Colour

I carried on with my walk along the pathway that parallels the Rideau Canal.


There is a pond here near the Bank Street Bridge that is linked to the Canal. When the water levels are lowered for the winter, it too decreases in level.


Some Canada geese were having a bite to eat along the path. They gave me a look before deciding not to hiss at me.


Another view of the pond.


I liked these colours close by.


Here at the base of the bridge is this sign from the Dutch embassy with landmarks noted in the city, and the distance to the Netherlands. Quite a difference.


Here is the bridge itself. I passed under the arch.


On the other side of the bridge I took this shot of the stadium's south stands at Lansdowne Park.


And I finish today with this view looking east over the Canal from the Bank Street Bridge. I like how the cupola of the Royal College looms over the south shore.

  4. I am very pleased with the fact of these splendid geese being called Canada Geese, even scientifically Branta canadensis. They should stir the hearts of us all!

  15. The red and white sign at the Dutch embassy is most common here. We call it 'paddestoel' or 'mushroom'.
