    Random pics from a Canadian Small Town

    Since I've been walking so much, I decided to start snapping some pics on my walks and bike rides (which will be upcoming).

    The buds are just starting on the trees and hopefully spring will soon be here. I'll add to these over time. Don't mind all the nature pics.. hah.

    One of the bridges to the USA.







    Canadian customs, which is dead atm, it is very weird to see no cars here. As you may know only essential travel is allowed now. I used to go over about three days a week to work.

    Well it is the time between winter (snow just melted about two or so weeks ago) and spring. I thought the sombre kind of pics went with the isolation and mood of the community at the moment.

    That bridge has rusted well for being only 6 years old.

    I think that's a coating that is painted on to the steel.

    Yes, I know it well. A bit of spring rain and as always it will be beautiful. Thanks for the effort to post pics. Keep them coming.

    Fyi, when you furiously research people's pictures it makes you look proper creepy.

    Cheers! Yes, it is bleak, but at the moment that is where I live and my family is.
    Taking pics gives me a creative outlet. And I agree, it is much nicer in bloom, but these dark/dead pics remind me of what's happening now with Covid-19. Remember that even though things may look dead, they aren't.. underneath they are getting ready to bloom and grow.

    I'd be more interested in pictures of main street.

    PB don't be so hard, its coming into spring and the seasons have a beauty. The nearer the equator the more dull like Ron it gets imo. Winter sees the bones of the trees and its an architectural display, spring the green fuzz and first flower, summer the green glory and autumn (Fall) the burning wane. I love 4 seasons and will always miss them when i don't live through all 4.

    ^Yes, I love the four seasons, although our winters are far too long imo.

    ^ha. Aren't you Canadian, Neal?

    No new pics to report. It has been raining about three days straight , so maybe down the road. Most parks are closed here now, but I can still walk /bike on them.

    More outdoor vistas please.

    General location labels might help.

    ^Sure thing. Yes, the pics are taken in a small town in Ontario, Canada. I live in on a border town that crosses onto a Native Reserve and then another bridge crosses into the US (where you hit US Customs). When I take pics looking over the water, I am on the Trans Canada trail that is looking at the 'Island' as we call it where the Mohawk Indians live (and where I sometimes teach as well). Maybe that will put things into perspective, Chazz.

    I got the bike out today even though it was windy.

    So when you cross into Canadian customs, you come out here and this was the first time I see these huge signs saying 'Go Home' and 'You must self isolate for 14 days'.






    Looking towards the Island that connects to the US via a bridge which you cannot see. I like to go to the Casino on the Island.




    All tuned up and second bike ride of the season.

    These are for Cujo. Downtown which is very very dead at the moment and not too happening even when things aren't close due to Covid. The buildings are quite old which gives it a bit of character.








    The local marina where boats normally start docking here around this time.

    Thanks MM. I have a particular liking for large stretches of open water, so I am enjoying the pictures. As a Canadian, you probably take it for granted, but few will understand just how big a land mass the country is, much less the geography and demographic differences between East and west for example. Quebec remains a historical oddity too.
