Ooh, there it is! Looking all blue and inviting.
I found myself a spot with a good view, and had a sit. Me and my new friends hung out and watched the water sparkle.
That shot is not zoomed in at all. The seagulls were so close I could have reached out and grabbed one if I wanted to. It was slightly tempting. Their feathers looked so soft and nice.
Some lucky people live in fancy condos right on the water and get this view every day.
Okay, see the boardwalk across the water? We're about to head on over there.
I wanted to take a photo that showed the majestic grace and nobility of the Canada geese, but they wouldn't cooperate. They kept sticking their butts in the air.
They are diving for seaweed.
Moving right along. To the man-made pond! With paddle-boats! With a toddler in a toddler-sized paddle boat! This kid, who couldn't have been more than three, was using hand cranks attached to each paddle wheel to motor around the pond. He'd even figured out that if he cranked one forward and one backwards, he'd spin in a circle. What?! Man, that kid is a better driver than me.
There were a LOT of people in the open-field area of the waterfront, and a lot of booths set up under tents. It took me a minute to figure out what was going on, but then I saw the banana-girl...
... and I knew. It was the Vegetarian Food Festival!
I didn't stay long in that area because it was super-crowded. However, I did take note of a couple of veggie puns.
Come on, folks! Let's have a little appreciation!
*taps mike* Is this thing on?
This one was on a food truck. Lovin' would be easy if your colours were like my dreams.
Having escaped from the crowded festival, I arrived at the wibbly boardwalk.
Talk about a million-dollar view.
Long shadows are so slimming! Actually, more to the point, they're talling. I sometimes like to pretend that I'm tall.
That was it! Having accomplished my mission, I set out for home. And that, folks, is the end.
