I have no pictures of my first walk from a few days ago. I only went out to see if I could walk to the Perimeter Highway, which isn’t too far from my apartment. I can see the traffic lights for it when I make my u-turn to get to my place.
I hadn’t gone far when I found out that the sidewalk doesn’t go all the way though, so I would have to walk along the shoulder of the road. That didn’t appeal to me, but I noticed that the sidewalk turned and headed towards the condos at the end, so I walked along there.
That sidewalk ended at a gravel road and it was headed back the way I came from. I wondered if it was the same gravel road that I found when following the trail along the Seine River heading south – so I followed it. The road crossed over a bridge, but I hadn’t gone far at that point, so figured if it was the road, there must be another bridge – so I kept on going. It was a beautiful walk – just like walking along a country road. I saw a deer out in the field, heard lots of birds and was enjoying the walk, when the road came to a bridge – but ended after the bridge, except for a turn before the bridge that headed a different direction.
So – that couldn’t be the road that I thought it was – so I turned and headed back where I had come from. It wasn’t until I was back in my apartment that I realized that the first bridge WAS the same bridge I had walked over that other time. The trail that I came out on was just before the bridge, but since I wasn’t looking for it that soon, I didn’t see it. I’ll take my camera next time I go on that walk.
This morning, before heading over to the house, I went to Fort Whyte Alive for another walk. I have pictures and a short video of this walk. 🙂
At one of the little ponds, it was just so peaceful – birds were singing, dragonflies were busy catching mosquitoes, tadpoles and water-bugs were swimming in the water – so I took a video. 🙂
