Cataraqui Reflections

Tuesday, June 6, 2017

Hello Kingston, Ontario. My new city to explore!

On 26 April 2017, I left my home of 7 years in Trenton of Quinte West Ontario, and moved to Kingston, Ontario.

My apartment faces the Cataraqui River, which flows south to meet the St. Lawrence River, itself beginning its trek to the Atlantic Ocean.

My view is magnificent. I face east so I begin by showcasing some of the sunrises I have experienced since arriving here.

On my first morning, I took the best pictures.

There is a little walkway out front of my apartment building that I have walked a few times.

This is the outside of the building a few weeks ago when the tree was flowering, making for a pretty picture. I highlighted my apartment to show you exactly where I get the beautiful view.

I love that the apartment is low to the ground. I do not need an elevator to exit the building as the 2nd floor is accessible from the back for walking out. There is also an entrance close by, and it can be a little noisy at times.

Here are some more sunrise shots, not as colourful as the first few days, but beautiful all the same.

The above picture features a man standing up in a canoe.

Turns out he was fishing. I hope he caught something. An unexpected sight but interesting.

Okay, last sunrise picture for this post.

Looks like the sun is setting the building across the river on fire. Love it.

I could go on and on, but this is enough for this post. The next post will be all about the trail I found nearby and pictures of the flowers and wild life I found there. Stay tuned.

    As usual, you capture the moment in time, the arrangement of the plants in the photos seem like you placed them there. Of course you did! Thanks for sharing your pictures and yourself Nancy.
