On a recent warm day I went for a walk on the shores of Great Slave Lake. This is a huge lake (tenth largest in the world) and is not usually this calm (unless it’s frozen 😉 ).
I think this was a last hurrah before northern winter closes in, and in fact, the weather turned windy and rainy the next day.
This was a wonderful last summer sigh and I’m glad I was able to enjoy it.
Greetings from an autumnal Northwest Territories.
I will be intensely busy at work over the next week or so and won’t be posting. I will still be stopping by but my comments may be limited as well.
Happy Tuesday and have a great weekend. 🙂
Here are some of my most popular photos from the summer. Can you believe we’re heading for autumn? So soon??
This rainy rosie was well-liked and is one of my favourites too.
And this cutie. I don’t know what kind of flower this is, but it’s seriously lovely and delicate. 🙂
And daisies. They weren’t necessarily a blogger favourite but they are my favourite, so I’m including them.
Happy Tuesday. 🙂
Here in the north, we have had a lot of rain over the last couple of days. We are finally drying out with a misty sun.
Happy Friday, happy weekend from the Northwest Territories. 🙂
The vineyards of the Okanagan Valley are verdant and blowsy with green growing …
… and green globular wine grapes, tight with juice and flavour …
… unless they’re red. 🙂
Most of them will soon be ready for plucking. They will become lots of types of wine, both precious and humble, and everything in between.
Greetings from the vineyards of the Okanagan Valley. 🙂
At the end of the day, after all the beach- dwelling people have wandered off, sunburnt and tired,
the ducks reclaim their rightful place
and the geese return.
The lake becomes itself once more.
This is Skaha Lake in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia. I spent a lot of time there while on summer holidays.
It is very serene …
… and placid. Soothing and relaxing and exactly what water and sun and fresh air and nature can do for a tired human being.
A beautiful day in the neighbourhood.
Happy Tuesday. 🙂
