PD Day

The kids had a PD Day last Friday, but we only had them for the afternoon because their other sitter had a party in the morning. We like to get them out, and our choice on that day was the River Walk in Almonte. We begin at the Old Town Hall and make our way to main street. It's not far.

Along the way, we come to the former railway bridge. ↓


Below the bridge, we found neat swirls of what looks like soap scum. ↓


The kids threw rocks in the river, and this ghoulish face appeared. Do you see it?


Further on, Danica balanced on the bench, and JJ climbed a tree.



I liked the textures, lines and shadows of the Victorian Woolen Mill.


The falls. I promise that I will return with a tripod, someday, for a slower exposure.


Me and my buddies. Either they are standing on something or I am slouching or both.

Oh ... they may have put a 'feather' in my cap, but I don't think they called me macaroni.

I think that boy is half monkey, he's always halfway up a tree.
You certainly have some nice places to go for walks. Very nice picture of the waterfalls.

I think you even managed an image of the Scream by Edvard Munch! (The swirly picture)

You eye captures beautiful images. You sweeties are growing up. These special times pass so quickly but you are making the most of them by the look of it!

Your commentary is almost as good as your pictures. Loved the last entry too ... I knew you wouldn't let Halloween go by without a bunch of photos.

Watch that river monster. Keep your kiddos safe until he calms down!

The swirly face umage was perfect for this time of year, approriately caught mid-scream. What I did notice was that everyone was bundled up against the chilly temps. And, no you are not getting shorter, but Damica and JJ are growing taller.
