This morning we were treated to a spectacular sunrise. My beloved was pouring coffee when he saw the glow against the barns .. .
Coffee can wait .. . .the sunrise does not.
Fortunately for me .. . .he waits too.
Yesterday we went to the river for a walk. The trail system is wonderful.
We walked first on the trail beside the river and then took the dyke back to the truck.
It was a calm and crisp day. I couldn't get over how calm the river was. It appeared to be more of a lake than a flowing river.
In a few months I'll retake this same picture and show you the difference.
Once the snow starts to melt in the mountains the river becomes the mighty Fraser.
We stopped for a photo op on the old train bridge.
When I was growing up if we wanted to cross the river we waited for the light to change before crossing since it was a single lane bridge.
Between the waits and the trains, it could be quite a long wait.
The amount of train traffic that crosses it now is amazing.
My beloved was setting up the camera and we heard a whistle blowing in the distance and he asked . . .is that train coming here?
"I don't see it" . ..I replied.
He continued to adjust where I should stand.
I saw the train coming in the distance and finally said. . .
"Oh . . . there she comes"
I thought we had plenty of time.
He did not.
We came back.
That is the same mountain in the distance as the sunrise mountain this morning.
We walked for a few hours.
I loved it.
Such a cheap date .. . .
Got your pedometer on?
Have a wonderful day my friends.
