Yesterday

Breakfasted on boiled eggs, tea and pound cake. Then hiked through the Roxboro Natural Area. The trail follows an escarpment that overlooks the city center. It is next to an old graveyard, and at one point there was a hole in the fence, so we went through it and wandered among the gravestones. Many of them were for nuns who had died in the first half of the twentieth century. There was also a large plot for Senator Patrick Burns, an early resident who has a number of buildings, parks etc. named after him. We followed the Bow River back to town, pausing several times to watch the geese and ducks. It was getting quite hot by the time we got home. We lunched on ham sandwiches and beer, and I fell asleep with my head on L's lap.

I took this pic in the graveyard. I tried converting it to black and white, but I couldn't get it quite right, so I tried posterizing it. Not sure I quite like the effect or the subject matter, but there is something about it...
