Mission Creek Greenway. That was our ride today. It was familiar territory for me. I did that ride often when I lived in Kelowna and I enjoyed it again today. It was a beautiful, sunny, hot, 27 degree kind of day, of memories of nurturing things I used to enjoy when I lived here, one being this stunning long-stretch of linear trail that runs 16.5 km. along Mission Creek.
|One of the bridges to cross over to the other side of the creek. There's a long stretch where there's a pathway on each side of the creek.|
|Still a strong current even though a lot of rocks are showing. It's crystal clear water.|
|This part has always been my favorite part of the pathway.|
|A spot where I often sat to journal when I lived there.|
|A blue heron on the edge of the lake in front of my sister's house.|
And here's how I'd like to finish my blog this evening. With a quote by Leonardo da Vinci. "When you put your hand in a flowing stream, you touch the last that has gone before and the first of what is still to come." I did that today when I knelt by the creek at the end of my ride.
