Marsh Boardwalk

A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds, and mopes; a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs; an optimist doesn't see the clouds at all - he's walking on them. - Leonard Louis Levinson

The weather report read: "Alerts in effect for Ontario".  It seemed that we were going to get another wind storm with rain. The storm that had just moved through the midwest (United States) was heading our way.  But, the skies overhead were blue, and the day was warm.  Since blue skies are hard to come by,  my family and I decided to take the few hours of nice weather we  had...for a picnic and a walk. 
Here are some of our pictures from nearby  Presqu'ile Provincial Park

skies at 4:00 pm....
This was my favourite spring day yet! And back home just in time.  I am glad that we did not miss the day...just waiting for dark clouds to come..
