Saturday Snapshot - Lake Ontario


There's a walking trail near my house that swings down along the shore of Lake Ontario and this little bench is at about the halfway point. I don't always sit down, but I like to at least pause and take in the scene every time I pass by. I love how the large tree on the right (black walnut, I think) frames the bench, shoreline, and the watery horizon.

Oh, I agree with what Dizzy said! Perfect reading spot. Thanks for sharing, and how wonderful it must be to have such a scenic trail.

That is so pretty! I think I'd sit there all the time, reading or just staring at the water.

Oh, so beautiful and tranquil looking. I could never pass that bench without taking a rest and drinking in the view. Thanks for sharing.

What a peaceful spot. Love the sparkling water and the shade from the tree.

That looks like a great spot to sit and ponder while taking in the view.

Louise said...

What a perfect spot to stop and ponder (or read, but I think it would just be too distracting)

It looks like you can sit on either side.... I love it. I would reflect there.

I'd love to sit on that bench and read - though the view is so perfect it'd probably distract me too much!

I love how the trees make a frame for the view! Quite lovely!

I'd spend more time staring at the water than I would walking. That bench would be perfect for reading too!

It looks a most tranquil and meditative spot. I can see myself sitting there gazing at the water.
