Cap St Jacques nature park


My daughter, Shannon, and I went to Cap St. Jacques nature park early this morning. When we got to the nature park the parking lot was full. There was a race today. We kept going until we got the far end of the park. It was a cloudy and cool morning, about 16 degrees Celsius It was drizzling on and off.


The Lilacs were in bloom.

Shannon heard a bird that she did not recognize. We found a Killdeer in the field. Soon it was joined by two more. The three Killdeer were flying around and landing in the field.

We met a one of the maintenance workers and he said that the area will be closed soon for a party. It started to rain. Time to go.

That all for today’s walk.
