Autumnal yellows

I recently moved next to the Rivière-des-Prairies in Montréal, where there are parks almost all along the river (40 km). There are rapids and an electric power plant where the waters are turbulent and hynoptic. I am also close by the Parc nature de l’Ile-de-la-Visitation which is another magnificent park.

I decided to move before the pandemic and before we went into confinement. That is one of the best decisions I have made in my life. I have enjoyed walking by the river almost every day and am thankful to live in such an enchanting environment, especially during these trying times.

Yesterday was a surprisingly hot day for this time of the year – the sun was shining, there was a warm breeze, a lot of people were walking and cycling, laughing and smiling, and the smell was almost sweet. A perfect day!

Now is the best of fall – there is as much leaves on the ground as in the trees. I walked for at least 2 hours – I didn’t want it to end. It’s probably the last hot day for a long time because today it’s cold.

I will remember this day in those harsh cold days to come.
