Christmas Eve Pt. 2

It was a lovely, dry, green Christmas–about 8 degrees.   Christmas Day is very quiet in Kingston.   Hardly anything is open and there is just a handful of cars on the road–not like Vancouver!   The sky was blanketed with dappled clouds and tonight the clouds have parted and there is a fine full moon.

Just down the road from the Parrott Bay Conservation Area is another large solar farm with turbines in the background.

There are several little parks along the waterfront on Hwy. 33 (Loyalist Highway).  This is one of them.  It was quite windy yesterday and the water was really splashing!

Three of Parrott’s Bay.   It comes in, narrows as it crosses under the highway, and then opens out into a little lake in the middle of the Conservation Area.

A gorgeous Christmas Eve.

The downtown area of Kingston, right up to the 401, is generally pretty sad as far as Christmas lights go.  I will probably be taking an elderly friend for a lights drive on Sunday or Monday and will post pictures.  Bayridge  is usually a good bet for a festive showing–I guess because there are kids out there?   The CKWS weatherman, Bill Hall, does the weather from various brightly lit homes and they probably have a list on their website.  I’m looking forward to seeing them, and then Christmas will be over for another year, and that is fine with me.
