A Summer Walk

This past Saturday, I went for a long walk with my friend Holly in Voyageur Park, which is just east of Hawkesbury Ontario. It was a beautiful day, warm and sunny. Walking through the woods brought back all sorts of memories of summer days when I was a child and walked in the woods around my home town of Kenora. 

Occasionally, we stopped to admire some gorgeous views of the lake. I love the way the sunlight filtered through the branches and the way the trees framed our view of the lake. Doesn't the water look inviting? 

This fallen tree looked very sculptural with all the branches snarling around. 

After a while, we came out into an open area where people could launch their boats. It was so calm and clear here. 

At the end of our walk through the woods, we stopped to buy some ice cream in the park store and sat on a picnic table on the beach. Holly was watching the people swimming as she was eating her ice cream. 

I rarely eat ice cream, but it tasted just perfect on this summer day. I had the cookies-and-cream ice cream. Yum!

There were many people swimming and I wished I had brought my bathing suit. But it was fun just to watch them as we ate our ice cream. All in all, it was an idyllic way to spend a summer afternoon.
