Today was a nice, freezing rain kind of day. I couldn’t get anything done on my route today, so I thought why not go down to the Scarborough Bluffs and take some pictures?
Bluffer’s Park holds a lot of my childhood memories, and more recently memories of me failing at taking up jogging (ugh, long story).
Here they are, as I tried to make light of the most disgusting day of the month so far.
The notorious Canadian Goose.
These bright red berries really stand out on such a drab day.
Looking west out to the little man-made thing where I previously attempted to go jogging, HA.
And east, towards to the marina
It hasn’t really been that cold, but the ice still won’t let the rocks go.
A spot to take in the silly ducks who put up with the super-choppy waters of today.
And a few steps back
The houseboats of Bluffer’s Park. I’ve never known what exactly attracts people to live in “floating houses” (not really boats since they don’t go anywhere) but hey, at least they have some cool geese to look at.
For those wondering, those would be the “bluffs” in the background. For some reason I didn’t get any pictures of the actual bluffs. Go figure.
An empty, frozen marina
You would not believe the amount of people just sitting in their cars in the parking lot. Are they waiting for a drug deal? Just drove down to think? I have no idea.
I spent so much time here in the summer as a kid, but it’s something completely different to come and walk around when everything is covered in ice. Try it sometime.
