About Me

My photo
Delta, British Columbia, Canada
I took very early retirement from teaching in '06 and did some traveling in Europe and the UK before settling down to do some private tutoring. As a voracious reader, I have many books waiting in line for me to read. Tell me I shouldn't read something, and I will. I'm a happy, optimistic person and I love to travel and through that believe that life can be a continuous learning experience. I'm looking forward to traveling more some day. I enjoy walking, cycling, water aerobics & and sports like tennis, volleyball, and fastpitch/baseball. I'm just getting into photography as a hobby and I'm enjoying learning all the bits and bobs of my digital camera. My family is everything to me and I'm delighted to be the mother of two girls and the Gramma of a boy and a girl. I may be a Gramma, but I'm at heart just a girl who wants to have fun.

P is for Peaceful Path

Halloween day dawned bright and sunny, so we decided to go to Deas Park, about a 10-minute drive from our place. It's a beautiful, peaceful place to stroll, with lots of trails and paths in which to wander and take photos. We took the Dyke Loop Trail and enjoyed the warmth of the sun, the colourful trees, and the wildlife that we saw - woodpeckers, ducks, rabbits, and even a dog named Coco (a brindle boxer - okay, she wasn't "wildlife" but she was great, and so cute and friendly.)

I had trouble uploading the slide show, so here's the first photo where the trail began. Then please click on "View All Images," (below) click on "full screen," and you can see the rest of the photos.

I love those peaceful paths and somehow they make you want to go on and see just what is round the corner.

Rose said...

Lovely, Leslie! Thanks for taking us along on this peaceful path. I enjoy taking walks in places like this, which I don't do often; it doesn't seem so much like exercise:)

Beautiful! Here are my favourites: Fallen leaves, Trail lined with horsetails, And even more ducks, and ... oh gosh, I've forgotten what it was called, something like 'Leaves and shadows'.

Those four are stunning.

Вопрос:   Я надеюсь познакомиться с приличной девушкой. Времени после работы абсолютно не остается, а в праздники часто заставляют также  бегать по разным инстанциям. В общественных местах знакомиться не прилично.  Пока на сайтах знакомств нахожу  в основном продажных девушек. Посоветуйте выход, пожалуйста. Заранее огромное спасибо ..
