I’ve been a bit restless in the past month or so, trying to find my feet in my own city as I live here, just here, for the first time in years. Trying to figure out what pleased me so much about my semi-nomadic life, that combination of wanderlust and familiarity, and where I can pick up strands of it here. Trying not to feel too much like someone took my shoes because I have no real travel plans at the moment.

So I took myself off today to a part of the city I have literally never been to in my 25 years here — the Scarborough Bluffs.

Saw my first robin of spring.

(Yup, that’s a robin all right).

Also a lot of beautiful long-tailed ducks in breeding plumage, but just a little too far from shore to get any good shots. They really are among the prettiest ducks.

I love ducks.

Also I love finding parts of my own city I didn’t even really realize were there.


I’m not sure my wanderlust can be satisfied by the bottom of Brimley road, but it’s good to open my eyes in new ways.

  1. That bottom photo is amazingly good!
    Are you back for a while, then?

  2. Thanks for these beautiful photos of the bluffs. Some of us who live very close rarely get down to the bottom of the bluffs but I find a rare, peaceful pleasure when I. can take the time.
