Some frail and sparkling tiny ice sculptures. They might be still there, because there hasn’t been much melting in the last few days. It’s supposed to go down to -14 I think tonight. What’s with that?! It’s spring!
Syruping in the city. Bagot Street.
The Church of the Good Thief, at Kingston and MacDonald Ave, is now out of commission as a church. http://www.thewhig.com/2013/09/09/church-of-the-good-thief-closing-its-doors
Cute house on Mowat Ave., if I remember rightly.
Francis Street. I thought these decorations were just left out because there was too much snow, but the Christmas lights are still on at night too!
Local Baha’i musicians playing some Persian tunes.
Two shots of the Baha’i Naw Ruz (New Year’s) celebrations last night at the Kingston Senior’s Center. The band is the Tine Rufalo Marimba Band from Ottawa. They are very good, playing mostly music from Zimbabwe.
Now this is a story. This is the bridge over Loughborough Lake on Perth Road. Skidoos love to race around Loughborough Lake in the winter. As you can see, there is a hole in the ice in the top picture. I guess that melts there first every year. And every year, daredevils race under the bridge and try to drive their snowmobiles across the open water. Their friends stand on the bridge and take pictures and cheer them on. There have been rescue vehicles there for the last two mornings when I have been heading into work. I don’t know the details, but it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to hazard a guess.
Tomorrow we go on a road trip.
