Winter on the Canal

I haven't ventured very far this winter.  I am finding that when my day off rolls around, I am spent.  Bankrupt is a better word, I guess...

On occasion, I'll get off my couch, and venture to the side window to see what is happening in our neck of the woods.  I don't wander about in this you won't see any footsteps in the following pictures!

Above, is the view of the Lock.  The water flows constantly, making this a dangerous place to fish, and in the 4 years we have been here, nobody has ventured onto the ice, knowing it to be thin and unstable.

This is the view to our East.  I love the sunlight on the snow drifts!

Our flag has taken a beating this year, but look beyond to that beautiful blue sky.   

Winters in Canada are harsh, but for the most part, we can choose to stay inside. don't have to venture far to find beauty in any day!


  1. It all looks so beautiful from INSIDE!
    Stay warm.

  2. Good evening Wendy!... All sensible decisions on your part! The same has applied here in this neck o' the woods! The days have been sunny and bright enough... but the continuous winds create very unsafe wind chill situations. Best to just "hunker down" and paint inside!

    Good weather will come! Lovely photos! Thank you for sharing!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,

  3. You are wasting some great snow and cold air!!!

  4. I love nothing better to 'hunker' down on cold chilly days - but wow what a beautiful scenic snow scape you have!! Thanks for visiting my blog!! Stay warm

  5. That snow certainly IS lovely in photos! These are especially pretty.

  6. methinks your Canadian winter has taken up residence in the lower 48, particularly the northeast!! it was 4 last night!!! lovely shots, thanks for sharing, but really you can keep your winter!! :0)
