First Images in Canada for 2016

I walked to the small nameless pond near our home the first morning after arrival. I missed being out in nature while I lived in Bucharest Romania.

Little things seen on a walk

  1. The blue flowers I used to pick as a kid going to temple with Grandma. The blue flowers were dedicated to a specific god that I don’t remember anymore.

Finding the Red-bellied Woodpecker

Yesterday I walked out of the house, towards the river. Lately I’ve been feeling slow and inactive. I did not want too walk far, once I reached the river I was satisfied.

After about 20min it was joined by another Goose. I sat there and read a some pages from Wild by Cheryl Strayed who walked the Pacific Crest Trail alone by herself.

On my way to and back from the river I captured some signs of Spring :
