Where Did August Go?

Monday Morning, August 29th, 2016 — 24°C / 75°F & Bright sun shining through humid atmosphere beneath a mostly cloudy sky at the moment in our little corner of Atlantic Canada @ 12:14 pm—

Spectacular Sky.
Friday Evening – Filling our gas tank just before 8 pm – We were facing a really spectacular sky. I think I captured a decent portion of that here-

— We’re getting ready for Cathi’s daughter’s Wedding – Went and had some Viet Namese noodles and a darned good chicken rice dish, then went to top off the gas tank – hopefully before the larcenous gas dealers up here raised their weekend prices through the roof – And saw some spectacular cloud formations – like the one above.

Spiralling art installaation.
From Saturday the 27th, This spiraling circular artistic expression is behind the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton is by Dennis Oppenheim and titled, “Arriving Home”.

— You can probably see what used to be a train bridge in the center of the circle. That bridge has been reworked with a wooden deck and become part of the extensive system of walking trails around the city of Fredericton, and throughout New Brunswick. You can probably walk or bicycle from all corners of this province to all other cities and points of interest along the way on those trails.

St John River, looking North and East.
Looking North East across the St John River from a walking trail behind the Beaverbrook Art Gallery.

— I remember a friend talking about art classes and how a line like the fence in this photograph would pull the viewer right into the photo or the painting. Saturday was a beautiful summer day with lower humidity than the previous week and a sky like the ones I used to appreciate in my summers in Vermont as a teenager visiting my grandparents.

Glaciated rocks on the bank of the St John River.
I’ve come to appreciate glaciated rocks up here since I came to visit and then applied for permanent residence and then citizenship. Here’s some of those glaciated rocks, I think.

— There were large chunks of lighter coloured glaciated rocks defining a boundary and discouraging four-wheelers from wrecking the grass inside a park in Arnprior, Ontario, where we used to live.

"Fine German Bankery".
And this is a “Fine German Bakery” that also advertises Viet Namese goodies. We never noticed this bakery before road crews and other construction workers have been working on the road and a now-vacant lot just east of here (Just out of the photo to the left).

— And, walking around town on Saturday afternoon we noticed a couple things we missed before, like this “Fine German Bakery”.

— And this is probably enough for now –
