Focus on Life Week 16~Take a Walk

.....and I responded promptly to that invitation! :-) 

Here is Sally's prompt for this week's photographs:

"Step back and look at the wide world around you and capture a shot of the landscape in front of you!"

For once, serendipity happened this day off from work AND the sun conspired together to provide a breathtaking spring day. I had about a million things I SHOULD have been working on, but chose instead to take Sally's advice. Thank you, Sally! I had a wonderful day!

I chose to drive up to one of my favorite spots; this is Marchmont, ON:

This old mill has been converted to a home, but still stands ready, without its millwheel, to enjoy the creek running by: 

We've had lots of rain, so the creek is running hard and fast at this point:

Here, on the other side of the bridge, is the small waterfall between the creek's origin lake, and the old mill. 

And here is the beautiful lake area up above:

Reflections on the lake:

No, this next photo is not turned sideways *g*


The flower boxes on the bridge are waiting for their Spring plantings: 

But these decided not to wait!

I love these patina'd old split-rail fences:

It was a gorgeous day!

I look forward to seeing what the other adventurers discovered, HERE at Sally's blog.
