No rain, no snow, just frost!
Heavy frost helped to created the most amazing images! It was a winter wonderland as we walked around Westwood Lake! The lake was frozen over and it was cold. It was warmer under the trees, especially as we walked the bluff above the end of the lake.
But it was “crispy” white around the edges, especially when the walk went from the under the trees to open areas.
I had Monday off, as I taught a workshop on Saturday. No plans, so we went for the longer walk around Westwood lake.
I took my Camera and Sophie investigated every hole and culvert, both sides. Between me stopping to take pictures and Sophie sniffing at every hole the walk took a while. So the walk that should be an hour or so took about 2 hours, but what a gorgeous walk it was.
Good thing we dressed warmly!
We heard a myriad of bird song, but saw few birds. They were all staying protected under the trees. I saw several different types of mushrooms on the walk…..
But mostly I saw frost….Brrrr.
That was the high side of town. On the low side, close to the water, there was fog all day long. It never really broke; it would move and shift; there were several banks drifting around town; it was foggy all day. I am so glad that I saw the sun in the morning at Westwood Lake……. as the afternoon walk was a different story.
Departure Bay Beach was cloaked in Fog.
