Today was Remembrance Day in Canada. Although I was not able to take part in any of the ceremonies I did hold a minute of silence for all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice so we could have our freedoms today. The red Poppy is a simple yet powerful reminder of those who died so we could live.
Today here in Edmonton it had been a very cloudy, drab day with a temperature about -6 Celsius. About 15 minutes before sunset the sky cleared and the sun shone brightly. By the time I figured this out and managed to get somewhere, much of the light show had come and gone. But I still had a pretty sky to cheer up a desolate field.
I was looking for a good view of downtown Edmonton this evening and failed miserably! I did however find Dawson Park and a bridge that goes across the North Saskatchewan River. There is a pedestrian walkway along the side of this bridge. The surface of the walkway is wood and the lighting along the bridge threw interesing shadows along this pathway.
I arrived in Edmonton, Alberta today. It was another one of those up early and hectic travel days. For those of us who are known as “Road Warriors” signs like this are something we get used too and look forward to after a long day of travel / work.
