photo walk xxix

From yesterday, at Fish Trap Creek. Seagulls were out on the ice.

At one point in the path, the ducks come out of the water. They think I have food. Although I like taking pictures of ducks, I don't like thinking that I might be adding to the however-many-pounds of duck feces that the signs say each duck leaves. So I don't bring food.

I didn't know that ducks have claws. Tongues and claws. I shouldn't like to get too close.

These pictures feel like today felt.

Did you notice that they plowed the snow off the paved trails at Fish Trap? I'm really not in favor of them paving trails, but I wouldn't have been able to go for runs outside this week without the paved and plowed trails. Did you see the new boardwalk on the east side of Fish Trap? I have to admit it's quite nice, even though I don't like them paving over the trails...

Mom,

Jonathan was telling me about all the trails being paved. I think it's part of the "Abbotsford Discovery Trail", including the paving of trails behind our place. On a nice day, it's nice not to have the paths paved, but in rain and snow, it sure is nice to be off of the mud.
