A Beautiful March Day Down By The Bay



2012-03-16 Down By The Bay On A Beautiful March Day

This photo was taken with my Mobile Phone


I got off work early on Friday, and the weather was unbelievable for this time of year. I remember past years in March I was still cross country skiing. Seems we hardly had winter this year. I am not one to usually complain about the weather. I just take it as it comes. Seems each day just goes by too darn quickly.

I had already made up my mind that morning while at work that when I got home I was taking my pony (bike) (for those who don’t know me), for a ride down to the Bay. Hubby had it out and ready to go. I grabbed my camera and off I went. Felt so good to be riding again. It gave me a sense of freedom from the cares of life, with the breeze blowing against my face. It was a warm, sunny day and I felt it’s warmth.

As I road along the Bay I saw geese and ducks flying by, and heard my first Red Winged Black Bird. Lots of turtles lying on driftwood, and rocks sunning themselves. I stopped and listened and admired the view, and then went on my merry way. Some of you would asked did you take a picture. To be honest, not at this time. I was just enjoying the ride , the view, and Natures Songs along the way.

I did finally stop at my Special Place and sat on my favorite bench and looked out over the Bay. The place where I sometimes like to capture the sun rising. It was so quiet accept for nature itself, and so peaceful. It felt wonderful to be sitting there just enjoying the moment.

I did take a few pictures but to be honest I think I am a little out of practice. Ha! Well I did get the dust blown away off my camera, and hopefully will find more time to use it in the near future. :)

My mom is still in the hospital but making progress, and starting to feel better. We are hoping in the near future that she will be home again, and enjoying this wonderful time of year soon to be called Spring. A time for new beginnings. A time of renewed health and strength for her I hope and pray. Thank you all for your prayers and encouragement along the way. It means so much to me. More than you will ever know.

Well it is another beautiful sunny warm day. Hubby just made brunch, and now I need to go get ready to go for a little drive, and pack up the cameras just incase something catches my eye. Got to seize the day!

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Love and Care

Dianne :) 

I will come and visit and do some catching up when I can. Sorry I haven’t been by and hope you understand.

Many of you remain in my thoughts and prayers , and I am thankful for your friendship. xoxo D.S

    It is good news that your mum is making progress. I enjoyed your blog, almost felt I was there with you, the view down by the bay, is awesome.

    Love and Hugs - Nita

  4. I love the pictures you shared. Sometimes just being out in nature is enough,we need no pictures to recall the moment.

  5. I do believe I could be content, for a time, sitting on your favorite bench! Yea about Mom!

  6. Thank you all so very much for your continued prayers for my mom and I. God Bless each and every one of you. Hugs Dianne:)

  7. Beautiful pictures & so lucky to have warm lovely days! We sure are having crazy canadian weather this year. To the east of us we have a blizzard with 30cm warnings, further east we have +28c & where I am in the west were hovering around +4c... I'm glad your Mom is feeling better, hopefully she can return to the comforts of home very soon! :-)

  8. The weather has been good but the boom came down today with snow and winter weather advisories...that was cancelled and the snow is melting now but it does little to console me after a thirty degree temperature drop between yesterday and today. Love the pictures my friend, totally wonderful!

  9. Good to hear your mum is doing well , lets hope she continues to improve Dianne. Beautiful pictures Oh Spring is just a wonderful time of year. The wildlife on the Pond here is taking shape a lot of activity going on.
    Look forward to your next trip out with your camera. Lets hope you see something quite unexpected, the wildlife always continues to fascinate me. Hugs Sheila and Wile-e xx

  11. Beautiful view! Best wishes to your mom :)

  12. Beautiful sunset! Hope your mom is home and doing well. Wishing you many blessings on this Easter Sunday!

  13. How could you ever be out of practice with your camera! I certainly don't see that in this wonderful bench and sunset photo. Such a peaceful setting. You are at peace, your mom is home and doing the best she can. Thanks for the update on her. I care, and appreciate how others are doing. Holding you in my thoughts. Relishing the idea of how fun it would be to trade back yard settings for a day or two. We can visualize, right?
