Wet Above, Wet Below

Hello, blogfriends! Here are a few photos from yesterday. It was raining, and the dogs were bored, so E.g. and I decided that if everyone was going to be wet anyway, we might as well take them to the beach. (Interestingly enough, unlike the trip to a dog park commemorated by a blurp photo, neither Cai nor Fergus made any post-beach regurgitations. )

The Longtailed Ducks, returning from up north, are back in Toronto for the winter.

This thing was just left hanging, presumably all weekend. Do you ever feel like that?

Fergus and Cai in the backseat, with a blanket over them both. They snoozed while E.g. popped in for some groceries.

The Longtails again. I was really pleased with this photo. Oh, and, yes, the horizon of Lake Ontario isn’t level… Oops… well, whatever.

  1. I was going to say that it looked like Lake Ontario was emptying itself into the St. Lawrence, but then I realized that from your side, that angle would have it emptying into Lake Erie instead … hmm … unless you’re on an island or jetty looking north … hmm … anyway it looks like the pups had a good, wet time!

    WOW! When you guys leave Summer behind, you really aren’t mucking around are you! IS that grass growing on the train carriage thing in picture 2!

    I’m trying to get my bearings here, Dennis, but I think that view is more or less west, in which case Lake Ontario is filling up the basements on Queen’s Quay.

    We actually had a decent Fall, this year, Alyson. Last year it was unseasonably warm for an extra month or so, and then the snow fell like a dropped box of books. But yeah, as my November 14 limerick hints, November is a pretty bleak month up here.
    The train carriage thingy is actually a ship thingy, part of the tugboat — those tiny orange blobs on it are life preservers — and the tufty stuff is a row of deciduous treetops with their leaves gone till next Spring.

    oh, the doggies look so soggy and content!
    very very cool weekend get away!

    Soggy they were, Goodbear! And cool it was; if it gets any cooler, in fact, we may have to wait a few months before letting Cai swim again. But it’s nice to have washnwear dogs!

    I love the red buoy against the muted blues and grays in the last picture!
    Two wet but content doggies!

    Thanks, Gina! I was really pleased with the buoy picture too.
    And the boys slept pretty well after that.
