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?
This is the final installment of a series of posts featuring the works of provincial artists that were chosen to be part of the city of Regina’s Alley Door Art Project. The doors are located in the downtown district, and are a lovely change from the usual gang graffiti and that of vandals.
A beautiful time for walking is when the sun is low and the waters are calm. The day is nearing its end, and for a little while, all seems right with the world.
I was happy to discover another beautiful park within my city’s limits. A.E. Wilson Park has it all: trails, a playground, bridges, a water park, wildlife, and meandering through it, a creek. Come explore with me.
Some areas here are quite rustic and natural, others have expansive, scrupulously maintained grassy areas. Along the trails are many benches for those who want to rest and breathe in the fresh air while enjoying the scenery.
Birds are by far, the most prevalent type of wildlife. I saw several Goose families as I walked one of the winding trails.
Some kayaks drifted lazily around the little islets within the park.
Because of Covid-19, the playground was eerily quiet. The date had not been set for the reopening of play parks as of May 28, when I last visited here.
All around were blooming shrubs and trees. Their scents filled the air.
I will come walk here again. There are more trails to walk, and sights to discover.
