This is going to sound depressing but the word for today is Loss. Today I said goodbye to a young friend who has been going to Queen’s. I knew her in Vancouver, so it’s been nice having her around. Now she is finished at Queen’s and is going home. That’s what happens in a university town.
However, that’s not all that’s gone. The spring has not been seen in a while. The 14 day forecast makes me laugh. A few days ago it said that the weather was going to get warm on the very last day of the forecast, May9. By the next day it had moved to, again, the very last day, May 10. Now it is May 12th. I’m not impressed.
So let’s show you what else is gone…
These are the buildings at Wellington and Princess Streets. They are coming down in order to build a new Scotiabank center. It was actually an old building but it had a 60s makeover in stucco.
Another thing that is gone is the magnolia tree at Chez Piggy. It was 25 years old and was diseased. They had tried hard to keep it going, because it was beautiful, but they finally had to say goodbye.
…And bad news for the Marine Museum…
OK, enough bad news. Now for just a few scenes, and someone is having a birthday!
No one is on the patios today. Too chilly.
I liked this shot–sort of creepy–but of course I am lousy at night shots. 🙂
Ooops, I just noticed that Cooke’s birthday was in 2015, and I am just noticing now. 😉
