An Autumn Whisper

I took a very enjoyable walk near Great Slave Lake and realised that it’s now autumn.

Autumn lake.

I can’t put my finger on what is different, but the sun is different, the air is different, the clouds are different and the tone is different.

Warm, windless and lovely, the day seemed to be taking one of its last deep breaths of summer before its sound and heavy rest; I felt as if it was holding off winter with one hand while gifting us with these few remaining hours of perfection.

Carpe diem. 🙂

Lake Walks

I took a lovely walk along this arm of Great Slave Lake.

This arm of the lake looks almost like a river.

There is some outflow into it, but it really is a sort of minor fjord.

The clouds were aligned with the lake.

It was a pretty day, but Great Slave Lake is large enough to create its own weather, a fact that came home to roost today with a deluge that lasted more than an hour. Unfortunately, there was no walking.

Happy mid-week greetings from Canada’s (now) sunny north. 😎

Logs on the shoreline of Great Slave Lake.

… with old logs that are slowly disintegrating. Off to the right, out of the camera view, is a lovely sand beach; many people were picnicking or sunbathing. The day was a perfect temperature with enough wind to give the lake a little wave action.

Vanishing point.

Right now I am in quarantine, but I am allowed to go outside for walks as long as I am distancing. I think I might spend a lot of my walking time along this lakefront!

Have a good week; stay safe and well. 🙂

And a special shout-out to Kenny: some sunny Great Slave Lake photos for you. 🙂

A Lingering Lake View

This morning I am leaving the south and heading back to …

A view of Lake Okanagan until?

… the north. Because of my work requirements and the safety precautions around covid, I’m not sure when I’ll be back.

Due to the travel, my WP visits may be sporadic for the next couple of days, but in the meantime, have a good weekend and enjoy this lingering summer view. 🙂
