Point Pleasant Park

One of my favourite places in the city. Point Pleasant Park.  I used to come here often but after Hurricane Juan I was too upset with the damage to visit for a long time. Today after being cooped up inside at the market all weekend I had to do some “forest bathng”🙂

I have re-discovered this park again this last year. It is coming back to itself. Healing. This tree looked beautiful to me, like a totem or a surreal being reaching for the sky.

This beautiful Copper Beech on Cable Road is one of my fave trees in the park. There are quite a few of them scattered throughout the forest. There is another up near the heather patch I must check on next time I am there.

Look closely and you will see a hidden Blue Jay.
Point Pleasant Park Cable Road again. This is the nicest walk as far as I am concerned. It runs along the NorthWest Arm and late in the afternoon/early evening the light is beautiful. There are often sailboats gliding by and in the early morning the rowing teams are out on the still water. There was a little squirrel who raced ahead of me on this fence, stopping at each post until I came closer.

Not sure what this flowering tree was.

We are so lucky to have this patch of green at the tip of our city!
