Killarney Lake is a beautiful place to visit any time of year.
There is a nice swimming beach at the lake and many kilometres of walking trails all around it. This was my first visit to this gem on the edge of the city.
My best friend of over 40 years, Lois, invited me to join her today. She brought her dog, Mocha, who enjoyed the walk as much as we did. Lois wore snowshoes but the trail was beautifully groomed so I just had on my winter hiking boots.
The sun shone brightly down on us in the open trail.
It was +5 Celsius today. Perfect. And too warm for a down coat!
A nice spot to sit and rest and enjoy the lake. But, not today.
This is a person ice fishing on the lake. He had his lawn chair and had cut a hole in the ice. I don't know what the lake is stocked with. Perhaps trout or bass.
I will definitely come out here again. We weren't the only people there as others were cross country skiing or walking their dogs.
Who wouldn't on a beautiful day like this?
But it's not going to last.
Do you see the clouds on the horizon? That's a storm front moving in from Ontario and Quebec. The same storm that caused so much havoc in those provinces and in the US the past few days.
They are predicting 15 - 25 cm. of snow for us. It'll be heavy, wet snow as the temperature will be around the freezing mark.
If you are in the path of this storm I hope you stay safe.
Thank you for all your visits and comments on my recent posts.
You are awesome!
Blessings to you!
P.S. I found a solution for slicing an orange safely.
I have a kitchen gadget from Pampered Chef that is intended to hold an onion while slicing it. It works perfectly for an orange too.
I just sliced between every other tine for perfect slices and no cut fingers! ;)
