Early, like REALLY early morning walk

There are always pretty spider webs on bridges early in the morning

We embarked on our walk at 5:30 in the morning, BEFORE coffee, to beat the heat. It was cool (13C) and beautiful. Later in the day, it was 27C so good call on our parts. Also very easy to socially distance when there is nobody else on the sidewalks!

Rainy July

Sunday: We’re having another fantastically rainy July, preceded by a rainy June, but today, around noon, it was gorgeous. Walked with Tom in and around Glenora/Ravine Drive/Valleyview. We had to wait all morning for the skies to clear, but somehow we found a pocket of sun and avoided the ever present rainstorms. It was still very, very humid. About 15,000 steps.

Can’t remember the temperature, but it was about 20C

Walking with Stella

Whitemud Creek after 40mm(?) of rain last night

This post, on the first Sunday of my last summer vacation week, is just a bunch of photos from my walks with Stella in Whitemud over the last week.

Torrential storm last night, so the creek was high and the foliage glistening with water droplets. It’s been a wet late July and early August. I am savouring every moment of summer.
