Jack’s Walk

Spring flooding along the Thames River. ©voyager, all rights reserved

Jack and I took our walk today along the river and found it running high with some areas of flooding.  It’s normal during spring melt and it’s nothing serious, but it has put parts of the path underwater so our walk was a bit abbreviated today. I don’t think Jack even noticed, though, he was having so much fun splashing around. The boy was just bubbling over with contagious joy this morning, wearing a goofy smile and carrying his tail mast at full up and waving. He was in and out of the water all the way along and even took a bit of float with the current. It was a wonderful outing. The sun shone and the sky was blue and I do declare that it feels like spring. Now, please, can it just get a bit warmer?

    I see that deep red colour in the brambles there, and I breathe deep knowing it is merely the prelude to a fine pale shade of green!

    Great photo but I tend to forget how tiny the Thames River is. Even in London it was pretty small.

    I used to live at the junction of the Rideau and Ottawa Rivers (and a hand-span from the Gatineau River). I, currently, live at the beginnings of the St. Lawrence.

    This may have distorted my idea of rivers.
