Peachy Keen

The Okanagan Valley is quite famous for wine grapes, but for many years before that it was well-known for its fruits and vegetables, especially its tree fruits.

I am not usually a big lover of fruit, but there’s nothing quite like a fresh peach, warm from the sun, gently sweet and juicy, slightly tangy but not acidic. And that heavenly peachy perfume! Such a treat!

So as I sit on the equivalent of a massive glacier, I can always dream sweet summer memories of peaches. Mummm, I can almost taste one.

Do you have a favourite fruit?

Happy mid-week. 🍑

August 17’s Monday Marvellous

On a recent walk, I enjoyed a stop at this wonderful waterfall.

A very frothy Hay River.

There is a very serious drop-off, so this is as close as I was able to get. Quite impressive, though.

A long trip north to empty into Great Slave Lake

After its long drop, the river continues its journey north. That’s life.

Have a good week. 🙂

A Great Big Lake

More views of one of the world’s largest lakes …

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. 🙂
