It’s carved into the river valley. The views as a driver and as a pedestrian are beautiful. It can be dangerous because it’s voluptuous and curvy. It’s also fun to drive.
When I’m walking to Tom’s I have to cross it at some point. Because it curves, it’s closest to me when I take the 102 Avenue route, crossing over the bridge at about 126th Street. If I walk over to 107th, there’s another bridge on about 131st. The 102 route is much nicer, and once I cross the bridge, I’m at the museum, one of my favourite walks these days.
When I started out on my walk, I was only planning on taking one photo, but it’s just impossible. Everywhere you look it’s gorgeous. I thought I was going to get rained on, but literally only one drop, and a distant, too faint for a photo rainbow.
Welp, it really autumn’d this week. Still mostly green, but the uptick in red and yellow just in one week is astonishing. Also it was chilly, about 10C. Also it was cloudy, which gets a big boo from me. But still a nice late after-work walk in the usual places (Oliver, Museum, Glenora…).
This isn’t a walking post, just thought I’d share some photos of a bee (my favourite subject) from a dinner over at Sharon’s on a cold Sunday. We’re still having family dinners outside (because of ^%$#! Covid), and now that we’re approaching autumn, it’s getting colder. It’s OK though, and if we hadn’t been sitting outside, I wouldn’t have noticed a very tired and possibly close to death bee on the deck. Before I could get to her, she survived a near miss with Stella’s paw. I coaxed her onto a flowery serviette, and then delivered her to the nearest actual flower. She seemed a little revived, but who knows?
Surprise! Another gorgeous after-work walk. 14,488 steps. 24C AND it’s a long weekend!! This will mostly be a photo post. It’s been a long week, and it’s always so rejuvenating to head out after work into the river valley, which is still sporting so much colour.
