Less a Thousand Words

I thought it would be easier/quicker to post pictures rather than write. Guess what….

The person who said ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ clearly had not met me. In my world, a picture requires a thousand words to put it in context. And then you delete those thousand words because it’s a picture, for cripes sake!

I’ll just say this: I shot every one of these pictures (some with my phone, some with my Olympus Pen Lite) during phase 1 of this isolation and each one does have a story (which I may blog about eventually), but for these purposes I’m going to leave it to you to dream up what that could be. Happy imagining!

  1. There are several pictures here crying out for their story to be told, Elise. Some of them are spectacular, especially the one of the swans in the field with the geese. I’m looking forward to follow-up posts about them!

    1. Just a few blocks from our house, there is a migratory bird sanctuary on the river. The swans and geese and a gazillion varieties of ducks make it there temporary home in early spring when the ice starts to break up a bit, but the swans are the most significant sighting. If you get down there early in the morning (which we never did manage this year) you will find thousands of swans as far as the eye can see. By lunchtime they have all scattered to various farmers’ fields to feed. I had to take these pictures from the safety of the truck because we were so close to them. It’s kind of surreal. At night they come back to the river to sleep and they raise such a ruckus of honking that I have sometimes heard them from inside my house at 3am when the rest of the world is fast asleep.
      There’s not much happening in Vanderhoof in March, but if you are of a cold-weather-resistant constitution and you are looking for a spectacular swan-related experience, come visit us next spring! https://sweetestherchronicles.com/2019/03/31/first-signs-of-spring/

      1. I just saw this comment…no idea why I didn’t see it til now. Sorry about that! I lived in Burns Lake for a VERY brief time many years ago. Small world, but I will restrain myself from asking what your niece’s name is — I can’t remember the names of any of the people I knew there anyway! Seems like a million years ago. I believe the swans do stop on some of the lakes in that area during their migration, so they might get to see them also.
