It started out with some sun and clouded over as the day progressed. However, that is enough to get us out of the house these days and onto a trail and a picnic. We headed for an area east of Summerside near a popular fishing pond known as Scales.
My husband and I brought hot soup in a thermos to have after the walk. The soup, a sandwich and hot tea would warm us against the 5 Celsius temperature. However the best thing about the day was that there wasn’t any wind.
November light when it clouds over reminds me of dusk in the warmer seasons. We proceeded to picnic in a sheltered area overlooking the water.
Meanwhile, our daughter and her Significant Other both love to fly fish on Scales Pond. They were fishing that day and and we spotted them in the distance as we walked along the pond.
The shadows of the trees on the water this day were as perfect as the trees themselves.
I especially like the photos with more grasses in the foreground.
Eventually, we too floated on the river with our daughter and her SO. The tiny motor on the boat wasn’t powerful enough to break the peace of the setting. We floated along, marvelling in the day, the setting and the company.
Along the shoreline, the grasses looked like straw, a reminder of the season.
The water reflected the shoreline as well as the pattern in the clouds.
In one area, the local beavers have been busy and worn a path to the water’s edge.
We really appreciated such a calm day in November on Scales Pond. We were dressed for winter but felt chilled at home later in the evening. Heating pads soon warmed us however. Despite the cold, it was a great day.
The pond's surface was just like glass -- perfect for photos!
I believe it was a great day! There is so much to see, to enjoy, to experience, to explore close to home...
I love how you continue to enjoy the outdoors as long as you can.
Our temperature yesterday was just a bit warmer than yours, but with the sunshine it felt quite nice, with good warm clothes, that is. Love your pictures and especially those reflections. :-)
i like the reflection in the first image!! those are some pretty colds temperatures, i admire that you still get out and enjoy the outdoors. you are right about the wind, that does make all the difference!!
i enjoyed the images captured from a different vantage point!!
Wonderful mood to these shots.
How very, very beautiful - and to share that beauty with people you love is a big bonus.
Such lovely calm photos. A special day with both boating and picnicking! It's so wonderful to return to a warm home, isn't it?
In spite of the cold, any day that we can get outside and on the water is a good one!
Take these days when they present themselves. -smile-
😊 🔥 😊
It's always good to get out whatever the weather.
Sounds like a great outing, pretty views and reflections.
The first shot and reflection is my favorite. Have a great day and happy week ahead.
What a lovely day to be out and about. Nice reflections on the pond too.
Beautiful scenery. The first pond picture would make a lovely painting.
These pictures are once again proof that beauty is everywhere .
Hi Marie ... another example of your wonderful photos. I have a suggestion for you. You have a lovely lyrical style to your writing and that paired with your photos would make an outstanding coffee table book. If noone has done that for your area I would recommend putting it together and getting it done. The visitors and tourists would love to have it and you might be able to make a bit of money too.
I'd buy one for sure...but it would have to be signed by the author !
Thank you for the wonderful suggestion and the encouragement of my writing and photography. I will give it some thought!
You will be much heartier for being out having you soup in cool weather. I think we get used to conditions and become acclimated.
It was a nice visit. You are so observant and share your visitations so well.
OOh, that looked like the perfect day. if not for the foreground of grasses, could have turned those photos upside down and no one would have known the difference...my husband used to flyfish. I never tried to master the art.
Beautiful images with perfect reflections. How wonderful to be able to share it with your daughter.
Love all those reflections in the still water.
I haven't had soup in thermos, since way back when.
Coffee is on and stay safe
this was beautiful day indeed dear Marie :)
you captured the views awesomely i loved the water laced with grass and the reflection is tranquil .
when wind is absent may be it means the storm later in this season . glad that wind did not bothered you and you had nice time with family :)
What a beautiful day. I admonish myself every time I read of a fun day you guys spend outside. My heart longs to be that organized. I want to be you when I grow up.
