The Ship with Silver Sails
Here is my version of The Grand Advanture with Caiti and Jess on a Tuesday Afternoon That Ended Up Taking Some Five Hours and Involved Trekking Seven Entire Miles, Which When Converted, Equals Roughly Eleven Point Two Five Kilometres. |
It wasn't long before we found our first distraction, as usual. Behold an amazing black swallowtail! It had just hatched, seeing as its flying was erratic and its wings were still shrivelly. What a lucky sight! How exciting.
This looks like a black swallowtail caterpillar, but the butterfly book I have gave their rendition antennae or those pseudo-antennae things, which it certainly doesn't have here.
Hm, I feel like I'm getting deja-vu. Cait, swinging at a Monster can with The Master Sword, a.k.a Patrick.
STIKE THREE... Yer outta there! They look exactly the same.. but they're not?! Whoa.
The pretty side street. Much more peaceful than Fermor.
And... we have train tracks! This time we went in the opposite direction.
Found the start of a rail yard. I have the name of it on my new map but I'm feeling quite lazy. Cait checks it out.
Thinking we might get in trouble, we test out how good the grass is for hiding.
My hat pocket comes in SO handy. Why does this picture remind me of the movie version of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas?
That's one heck of a fat car.
Cait waiting outside Tim's with her bag of tricks.. er, sticks. STAKES.
It reminded me of udders.
The grainy side of Winnipeg's industrial area.
Caiti had a brief love affair with this hunk of a red light.
Dust devil! Although I can't be sure that we can actually call it one. We had recently passed one of those yards with giant piles of different types of sands and gravels. Anyway I wanted to play in them really bad, but we didn't. I turned around and saw that a wind gust had picked up sand from one of the piles and made a cute dust devil with it.
A brief rest stop.
SHOES! As usual.
Under the bridge.
Over the bridge! Cait cameos.
Flowers growing between the cracks on the ties. ON the bridge, mind you. It was neat, seeing flowers up there.
After a long period of time where I took little to no interesting pictures, we find yet another bridge!
I was very sad to see that sign. The wooden planks were virtually falling apart anyway, and I grudgingly admit I am not as foolhardy as our dads were (they used to climb Winnipeg's bridges all the time, apparently).
Always have to check out what's UNDER the bridge. Here Cait scares off three billy goats gruff.
That next bridge in the distance is our next stop on the walk.
Hmm, that was random.
What did I say, eh? Here is the bridge that was in the distance a few photos ago.
Initially, my first thought was, "Well, I've always wanted to do this... seems someone couldn't resist!" Probably stolen.
I found a small plant that looks miiighty familiar. His name is Ted.
Fluffies on a barbed wire fence. Strange creatures from beyond the universe, aren't they? Looks like something you might see on the original Star Trek.
Also, If anyone, especially Caiti, wants these photos in a larger size, just let me know, because I'll send them your way. I have no problem with that.
