I woke early so I went for a long walk on the greenbelt and around some of the connecting parks. I was mindful of the barricades and avoided the areas where the river had flooded over the pathway. The ponds were filled with lots of noisy activity: ducks, geese, loons… I even saw a man on a single seater inflatable pontoon doing some early morning fly fishing. There is so much going on with nature in the early part of the day when few people are bustling about. Next time I’m an early bird I’m bringing my old bird book and cheap vintage binoculars. And my camera. I mean, why not? Maybe even some coffee in a thermos, hearty oat muffins, and a friend or three! Alright, I seem have next Saturday morning perfectly planned out!
