Final Park Post 2020

Final Park Post 2020

This final walk of the season actually took place in late September. It was a beautiful day. The sun was shining, and the breeze was so light, not a hair was blown out of place. The geese were content, but one, was showing off. He was all black, a different breed than the usual Canada Goose we see here.

Here’s a close up of the fellow, flapping his wings. His feathers dark and wet, gleamed the sunlight. I must admit, he looked pretty majestic while flapping and strutting.

Another spot of interest was this fence that surrounds one of the many lake outlooks. It’s used by local couples to proclaim their devotion to each other, by fixing love locks to the wire. The caretakers regularly remove the many locks placed here throughout the season.

There weren’t many this day, but one lock in particular caught my eye.

Justin and Tiffany must have been quite the lovebirds.
But what’s this that someone has scratched into the metal?

SHE DOESN’T LOVE U, and a sad face.
Were they joking, or disillusioned with love?

I wasn’t quite sure what to think about this display. Check out the website, flatearth101.com advertised on the poster. I can’t determine if the concept is tongue in cheek, or serious, but this fellow was eager to get his point across to any passerby who’d listen.

Remembrance

Another Remembrance Day, commemorating the sacrifice of those who died during military conflicts of the past. This monument was erected to honour those who perished at Dieppe, during WWII. It stands in a park in the neighbourhood named for that battle. It features the flags of Canada, Saskatchewan, and Regina, as well as three plaques.
