A Walk Along The River ...

Hello my dear friends,

as so often these days, I am late sharing something again.

 It is now the second day of Spring and here I am quickly wanting to share photographs that I took a few weeks ago of  the Winter. As times before, I have taken many pictures and again can't choose which ones to share and which ones not, so I am sharing them all. That means there will be a part 2 to this post because I don't want you to miss out on how beautiful everything looked.

After all the snow had previously melted away and had caused a lot of flooding in the city, we had another Winter storm over night with new snow falling and temperatures dropping once again.
I have always had a thing of going for walks in the Winter and this time it took me to the river here in London, Ontario. It was early in the morning which was nice because not many people have time to go for walks that time of the day. I parked my car close to a walking trail and went on my way. It was fascinating by how much beauty I was met during my short walk along the river Thames. So if you have a few spare moments, grab a cup of coffee or maybe your favorite tea and ...

... come walk with me!

Whilst walking to get to the trail from the parking lot, I was already greeted by a Winter Wonderland.
Everything had been covered and hugged by the newly fallen snow. The skies were bright blue and the sun was shining and it was very cold but that didn't matter to me too much. I just wanted to walk and not miss a thing.

The first thing that caught my eye was the warning sign that coyotes were in the area. A good thing to know and beware of for sure but what what did worry me a little more was this!

The previous flooding caused by the first snow melt and a huge down pore of heavy rain a week before had made the earth crack and become somewhat dangerous at the edge of the trail.  

 The cracks were very deep and it the ground looked unstable, so I made sure to stay away from it.
After passing that part of the river, the paths were a little icy and covered in snow but otherwise good to walk on. I just walked and took in my surroundings and how beautiful it was.

The river was flowing fast but almost silent. Everything just looked magical to me and other than a few birds singing somewhere in the trees, there was almost no noise to be heard. I don't think many words are needed to tell you that this is Mother Nature at it's best in the Winter.

So just take a look at what I saw!

Wasn't it so pretty out there that day?

I hope you have enjoyed the first part of my Winter walk along the river Thames.
I am hoping to share the second part of it with all of you tomorrow.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. This is such a lovely walk, I so enjoyed taking it with you.

  2. Thank you for the walk through the Winter Wonderland. I really enjoyed the trip. Hugs from Lina

  3. This most certainly a Winter Wonderland. We used to live in that kind of climate (Ohio) but it's as rare as hen's teeth to experience snow in Texas. Don't miss it at all, but do enjoy seeing the pictures. By chance do you cross country ski? That's the only thing we miss!

    Happy white stuff!

  4. What beautiful pics Karen. That had to be such a peaceful and lovely walk. Have a good day today.
