Frustrating Glory

Down by the Riverside

This has been a glorious day that has had its moments of frustrations. One frustration had to with Blogger. On the whole it's a great service, so I really can't complain, and the price is certainly right, but there are moments ... well, there are moments.

But I am here neither to bury Blogger nor to praise it. Rather, I am here to praise the day. When you get a sunny, shirtsleeve day in Canada after Thanksgiving, you've got to love it. We biked, drove around to enjoy the colours, and then walked around the property until we were sated.

So, what's the problem you ask. What could possibly frustrate you so on such a fine day?

Well, it's not a big frustration, but it had to do with our car ride. We decided to make a circuit that took us past several points on a lake. I wanted to take pictures to share with you and also to preserve something of the day for me. Would you believe that whenever we say a photo-worthy scene, we couldn't find a spot to get off the road? And whenever we could get off the road, there was no decent photo to be had: either because of the site or because a cloud had just passed over the sun.

Oh, I'm not really that frustrated, but I did want to share a photo today's glorious colour with you. I took the one above yesterday from the back of the property. I think that it will do, and I hope that you like it, but it isn't exactly what I had in mind.

If tomorrow is as nice as today, we'd like to drive to Algonquin Park. I haven't been there since I was a teenager, and Sue has never had the pleasure. From our present location, we are probably less than two hours away, so, weather permitting, that's what we'll do tomorrow.
