The recently installed pedestrian overpass across the bypass is a gorgeous piece of public infrastructure. It looks great from any angle.
It is truly neat that the approaches are bicycle friendly.
This is part of giving the city back to the ordinary person.
What is its purpose? Where does it lead? What’s on the other side?
The water is low in Lake Nipissing at this time of year and so it’s possible to walk in places that are unavailable later in the summer.
Water would normally lap at the roots of these trees and the stony beach would be obscured.
When the warmth returns, the stark bones of the trees will be hidden with green.
Visited a place by the railroad tracks today where the big minds with the spray cans spend some of their time.
There are more from today posted on the “Graffiti In My Town” page.
I submit photos to a stock web site. They will not accept graffiti unless the shot is accompanied by a release signed by the “artist”. Seems that the “artist” has copyright and could sue if the shot is used commercially. Funny world!
Sometimes the rear yards of old buildings tell their own stories. This structure is on Oak Street and those photographers whose memories go back some years remember seeing it when they visited a favourite store via the back way.
The designer of the necessary fire escape paid scant attention to the look of the building. The modifications to the original windows do not add to the architecture. It once looked good.
A narrow alley on Oak Street.
Spring arrives tomorrow. Cycling season can begin.
On the west side of town is Duchesnay Falls. The creek that feeds the falls usually doesn’t carry much water but with the early spring weather, lots of water is flowing.
We visited yesterday.
Visited the boat launch area in Callander yesterday. The exceptional warm weather of the past two weeks has sounded the warning to get the ice huts off the bay. This past weekend saw lots of activity around the boat launch and parking lot.
When the ice goes bad, the small Tardises (Tardae?) must be put somewhere.
The sun and the warm temperatures have beaten the ski hill to death extremely early this year. No more local skiing this early in March. It is sad to see the season ending so soon.
Perhaps there is something to this “Global Warming” thing!
Friends were out on our lake a couple of days ago doing some ice fishing.
There is three feet of ice to keep the truck from going to the bottom. It is a 1971 Fargo by the way.
On a day like this no-one cares if fish are caught or not. It’s just great to be out on the ice.
Walked in the bush near the cottage yesterday. Spring appears to have arrived about two weeks early but it is really pleasant outside so why worry?
Quiet and quite warm for March.
A sunny day today and so with some cloud in the sky we make another visit to Ice Follies on Lake Nipissing.
Darlings Harbour in Callander is the entry point for the traffic going to the ice-fishing huts on Callander Bay.
Quiet way to spend a day.
On the ice of Lake Nipissing is an intriguing exhibition of structures and installation art. Several interesting pieces stand in the sun, wind, snow, cold, dark, to provide messages and analyses of our world.

Neat way to spend an afternoon!
