Today was mostly cloudy, but quite warm. At suppertime, I felt the urge for some Pilot House fish and chips, so I went and got some to take out, and went to Douglas Fluhrer park, along the Cataraqui River. I saw my first little family of four ducklings, and great herds of goslings, surging about, looking like the Serengeti wildebeest migration. I counted 49, spread over 5 or 6 families. One great thing about a cool-ish spring is that we can sit outside without being harassed by mosquitoes. I’m sure that will change any day now, but I am enjoying it while it lasts. There is a lot of twittering in the hole in the house next door. I think chicks have hatched. The cat in the window below was watching intently!
Anyway, back to Lemoine Point…
Itty bitty oak leaves.
It looked like a bit of a cloudburst over there, but there was nothing near where I was for the duration.
I sat here for over an hour and didn’t see a soul. I was looking over a large open field, and listening to the birds in the bushes behind me. The sun was warm and it was soooooo relaxing.
Ferns are coming up.
Wild Blue Phlox
A sore point with me. And bikes are a sore point with my pedestrian friends.
A picnic over there.
The lilacs are coming along quickly.
On the way back out from the Point, near Collins Bay. That is Bath Road, with the Bayridge Drive bridge passing over it. There were also some goose families here.
