I had today’s post planned out in my head when I did my last entry on Saturday here, which told about the dogs that enjoy our local park, Trinity Bellwoods. While I had taken the pictures of those dogs I also got some of people there, and the variety of pass-times they partake in. (Or should I say ‘parktake in’?!) And those are what I had planned to post today.
But those plans changed after I spotted a very rare and special resident of this particular park, a white squirrel, on Sunday morning.
A small dray (I didn’t know before but I know now, that this is what a family of squirrels is called) of these white ones has lived here for a long time, but in all the years I have regularly been coming here, always on the lookout for a sighting, I have only ever spotted one twice before. And those times were quite fleeting, though I did manage to get some pictures last time which was actually on Christmas day (discussed here). I’ll retell my joke from that post … the Christmas Day sighting of the elusive white squirrel brought a whole new meaning to the lyric ‘I’m dreaming of a white Christmas’. :)
And here are the other park pictures that I have for you, but now they kind of pale in comparison. Especially this little guy enjoying a peanut. I thought he was very special when I photographed him a few days ago, but now maybe not so much.
Thanks very much for taking a look. Wishing you a great Monday and a good week to come.
