|Green grass and willow trees by the Rideau,|
between our house and the Minto Bridges
Further upstream near the rapids between Strathcona Park and the Vanier park we sat on a bench watching the ducks, geese and people go by and enjoying the sparkle on the water. The trees are all turning green now (with catkins on the birches and bright red blossom on the maples) and there are many dandelions flowering in the green grass. We day-dreamed about cycling all the way to Kingston which at a pace of three or four hours cycling a day would take three or four days, depending on how strong we felt.
