This path was still quite slippery. This is snow left over from the end of November. It got rained on and snowed on and iced on and then rained on again, and it became hard-packed and is very stubborn about leaving.
It’s only in bays like this that there is any ice–and very soft, unsafe ice at that. Where the water opens up is the line level with the girl’s hat. The Cataraqui River below Rideaucrest is also mostly open again. Along the lake downtown, there is not even a hint of ice along the shore.
Looking across Collins Bay.
I tried to get chickadees but they are just too fast.
Look–just as I finish my walk, the sky starts to turn blue.
Looking east along Bath Road from Portsmouth.
Main Street. Strangely enough, Main Street in Kingston is just a minor street, a couple of blocks long.
The sunshine was welcome, but, of course, it got dark shortly afterwards. We haven’t seen much sun in a while and, although I am loving the easy winter, I am getting tired of the drear.
