Exploring the “Wartime”

It has been sunny and dry, and the temperatures have been pretty nice for this time of year, but there has been a cold wind blowing for days.  That cold wind has also stripped many of the trees of their leaves.   A few Halloween decorations remain, as Christmas lights go up.   One less Kingston fixture adorns the cityscape, with the closure today of John’s Deli after at least 30 years.  The present owners had run it for 8 years.

Today I had a little tour around the Kingscourt area, or as locals call it, “The Wartime”.

It’s that time of year again.  Hillcrest is a tree lined street, so there are great drifts of leaves everywhere you look.   Take note of the castles in the garden.  I’ve never noticed those before.

Looking up Kingscourt towards QECVI, only QECVI is no longer there.    😦

Not even the rubble exists anymore.

The field just to the west of QE.

I think this was Cameron Street, but I could be wrong.

A typical little wartime house, with a still fairly green tree behind.   I like these little houses a lot.

More tomorrow.

    • Good to see you Paul. I’ve never been to Powell River, only making it as far as Earl’s Cove. I didn’t have a car when I lived in BC so unfortunately didn’t get to see much of the province, which is tragic, I know.
