So it seems that the weekly photo challenge from The Daily Post has drawn to an end. For a final post we are to post an all time favourite. I have so many favourites but I promised to choose just one from previous posts. You can check out others here.
This really is one of my favourites taken the first (and so far the only) trip to P.E.I. (but I will go back.) Anyway, back to the photo. It was taken at West Point Lighthouse. It was just supposed to be a day stop. We toured the lighthouse, combed the beach, walked on the boardwalk. We were about to leave a couple of hours later when my husband asked if I wanted to stay the night at the motel attached to the lighthouse. He didn’t have to ask twice. The rooms were beautiful and this bench sitting on top of a sand dune was just outside our motel door. It was the perfect place to watch an amazing sunset and end a fantastic day.
I live in Ontario, a province in Canada that is abound with lakes, rivers,ponds, rivers, and streams. With 250,000 lakes and over 100,000 kilometers (62,000 mi) of rivers, Ontario contains about 1/5 of the world’s fresh water.
When I went for a walk on my lunch hour yesterday I expected to see birds and squirrels, maybe a baby snake (saw one the other day) crossing my path. What I didn’t expect and seemed unlikely was meeting a wild turkey as she strolled down the path toward me. I stopped and watched as she meandered the pebbled trail, stopping occasionally to peck at the ground or look around. As she neared she peeped quietly, looked at me a couple of times completely unfazed by me or that I was taking pictures of her with my cell phone.
I zoomed in and out as I took the pictures. She got so close to me that she barely fit in the frame. I didn’t want to back up for fear of scaring her and took the picture anyway. And then she continued her journey.
These are not this year’s spring photos. I haven’t even ventured toward the garden to see if anything has bloomed yet. This weekend we are preparing for an ice-storm – yuck!!! Oh, when will it end? Longest. Winter. Ever.
