One of the pleasures of living in our small town is the river that runs through it.
We live across the street from the river and are in walking distance of this beautiful falls and park.
There's lots of wildlife that live around and in this park including ducks, geese, and many other birds, turtles (including a huge snapping turtle), snakes and muskrats.
Our favourite though is this Blue Heron.
He's quite the fisherman and we've enjoyed watching him catch and eat fish.
Summer here, like in many other places, has been hot, humid and dry. These pictures were taken a month ago and both the falls and water level are much lower now. Thankfully, it rained last night and more is to follow later today.
It's hard to believe it's August with Autumn just around the corner. I am looking forward to the fall season though as it's my favourite. We have been busy since we moved last summer which explains my absence here. I have ideas for posts but finding time to actually write them is another story.
It's all good though and I hope you're enjoying your summer too.
