A Walk By The River


Hello my Friends :)

My world is so beautiful lately that I just wanted to share it with you! Yup, winter has arrived and here it will remain until mid-May. Even though it's really cold out, I'm drawn to the charm of Nature! Alex and I went for a walk along the cold river yesterday.


Weekdays in this village are pretty quiet and we love that. We made several stops along the river bank to just sit and listen to the flowing water.


I made little snowmen all along the way too, that was fun! :)


Darkness falls quickly this time of year, making winter nights a beautiful haze of blue and white.


Time to head back home through the covered bridge. (Sorry it's a little out of focus!)


A nice comforting meal of Crepes Suzette warmed us up on a cold wintry night! The weekenders are already in town on their snowmobiles, making quite the racket...time to hibernate for a few days!! :)

It is very beautiful! We may lose quite a bit of our snow as our temperatures are going up this weekend, with possible rain. I've never made Crepes Suzette before (not actually sure what's in them!). Always inspiring! -Jenn

Beautiful images, Rain. Thanks for visiting my blog and playing along. Hope you have a really great weekend - xo Diana

Linda said...

Oh, my!!! I am speechless at that silent blue winter wonderland! Picture postcard perfect!!! I can't even imagine living amid all that slendor! It's a brown winter landscape in Texas.....

Sandi said...

You have a covered bridge!!! Cool.

These are beautiful, peaceful scenes. Good for you for making a Frosty snowman . Dinner looks wonderful.

Your photos are amazing. The weekenders need to find another spot to snowmobile!

John M said...

You live in a beautiful area.

Oh what a beautiful walk....

And what Yumminess, to warm up, at home.

Listening to the week-enders and their *toys,* must encourage you even more, to save for a down payment, on your home, away from all that noise. :-)

Truly breath taking! Thank you Rain!!! Your crepes look so yummy too! Big Hugs!

Christine said...

wow it really is winter there. It's supposed to go to 12C in Toronto tomorrow we'll see.... your crepes look comforting.

Leigh said...

Every picture looks postcard perfect! Beautiful!

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Mmmmm, crepes suzette! I'd love to have some!

Becki said...

Oh my goodness... these pictures are gorgeous. I'm in awe. Thank you for taking us on your walk, friend.

Pam said...

Love the snowy scenes, I like the idea of snow pristine white and crisp.But in the UK the reality is 5 minutes of white and then days of brown slush that gets tracked into every house and shop. That is when we get any snow worth talking about.

laurie said...

Beautiful photos, I never tire of the snow photos, good thing where I am lol, you make such yummy meals, everything is always so delicious!

Martha said...

SO gorgeous, Rain! Winter can be such a wonderfully scenic time of year. It's the cold I cannot handle! LOL

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi! What a beautiful walk along the snow laden river enjoying God's creation! Having fun making snowmen! Nancy

Susan Kane said...

Blast those tourists. It is one thing to enjoy and walk about, and quite another to rip peace and sound.

What a walk.

MrsDuncanMahogany said...

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! :) The first picture brings to mind the song sung by Sarah McLachlan - River. Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on....

wyomingheart said...

Dang Rain! You truly have a talent at taking those photos...you could sell them because they are stunning! You and Alex live in a beautiful area...snow and all!!!

Stefanie said...

I never stop being amazed at how you live up in the mountains. What an area you live in and love your snowman.

Sam I Am...... said...

You do live in a beautiful area and thanks for the snow pictures. The covered bridge with the holiday lights is so pretty! I haven't made crepes suzette in years but I well remember how delicious they are! I should put that on my menu list maybe for Christmas morning? Yum!

Susan said...

What a beautiful place to live - but a double-edged sword, too. I have heard the snowmobiles tearing around, too, and I dread it. They like to roar in front of the house at the wee hours, on their way back from the local watering hole.

Rachel said...

WOW. What a wonderland! Those pictures are just gorgeous. It's been pretty gloomy around here and not much else, hopefully we'll get some snow for Christmas. Love your little snowman.:)

Rain said...

Hi Jenn :) The crepes are orange heavy with Grand Marnier, ooh...so good! :) More of a dessert though. We had rain yesterday but it quickly turned to ice and it's a skating rink out there now.

Rain said...

Hi Diana :) Thanks, it is beautiful here. :)

Rain said...

Hi Linda :) I like to complain about the cold, but I really couldn't live anywhere that didn't have winter!! :) Especially this time of year!

Rain said...

Yes Sandi! :) that was one of the things that drew us to the town in the first place! :)

Rain said...

Hi Starting Over :) Dinner was amazing! I love making little snowmen, it's fun when the snow is sticky enough! :)


Rain said...

Hi Marsha :) Yes...I concur. Those weekenders...if they lived here full time they'd see the err in their ways!!!

Rain said...

Thanks John :) It's a lovely area. :)

Rain said...

Yes Wisps of Words!!! You took those words right out of my mouth. Alex and I just talked about that the other night. :)

Rain said...

Hi Stacy :) Thank you! Crepes are a favourite around here and I love to "fancy" them up! :)


Rain said...

Hi Christine :) 12?? Wow. We hit +1 yesterday with rain but it turned to snow quickly. I think our double digit weather won't happen until April!!

Rain said...

Thanks Leigh :) It's a beautiful area!

Rain said...

Hi Debra :) Those crepes are a special treat! Very boozy! :)

Rain said...

Thanks Becki :) Glad you enjoyed it!!

Rain said...

Hi Pam :) What you describe happens in April around here. Lots of mud and snow mixed, not very pretty!

Rain said...

Hi Laurie :) The snow is very beautiful. I'd miss it if I didn't have it that's for sure! I bet you have lots too now!!

Rain said...

Hi Martha :) I hear you on the cold. NOT a fan. And I just discovered my snow pants are not as warm as I thought they were, sigh...but I won't buy a new pair yet...just add two pairs of long johns lol! :)

Rain said...

Thanks Nancy :) The walk was fun, I'm glad you enjoyed it! :)

Rain said...

Hi Susan :) That's the problem here...it's beautiful, but the tourists just wreck the peace. That's why we want to be much more isolated!! :)

Rain said...

Hi Dianna :)) I don't know that song, but her voice is lovely. The snow is very beautiful. I hope your neck of the woods is just as stunning!! :)

Rain said...

Hi Dino :) Yes! It's a beautiful area, the nature aspect is wonderful. It's the people I can take or leave lol...

Rain said...

Hi Stefanie :) Thanks, I do love it here. I've been in the mountains for so long that I can't handle even shopping in the "flats" anymore!! I love the snowman too! :)

Rain said...

Hi Sam :)) Oooh Crepes Suzette for Christmas morning is a fabulous idea!!! :) That covered bridge looks very Hygge with the lights doesn't it? :)

Rain said...

Hi Susan :) You're so right about the double-edged sword. It just seems like every peaceful area we find...some blowhard city person has to ruin it. Oh well, what can you do but just move to a place more isolated right? That sucks about your wee-hour drunkards...I'd probably be setting booby traps for them lol..oops did I say that? ;)

Rain said...

Hi Rachel! :) I hope you're doing okay and your pregnancy is going well!!! I hope you get some snow for Christmas too, it makes things so much more festive!! :)

Nicole Thomas said...

Hey sis, do u get a little sad when u wander through the snow and think this is your last winter in the moubtains with so much snow ... or are u just happy to get away from those weekenders ?
Beautiful pictures. We are slowely getting some more snow. It was beautiful out today :)

Rain said...

Hi Sis :) We are getting more snow today too! It's very beautiful, but you know, wherever I end up, there will be snow. I have a feeling we'll still be in the mountains when we move. We're keeping an eye on New Brunswick mostly now, but Nova Scotia is still a big option. We even decided if we can find the perfect spot, we'd stay in Quebec, oh the horror lol...you know how I feel about the language crap here! But no, I don't feel sad at all. This town was great when we first moved here, but it has really expanded and the tourist population has doubled over the years. Just last night, we got woken up at around 3am by snowmachines racing up and down the road and honking their horns. No, I won't miss it! :)
