Along the Waterfront Trail

Categories: Around Quinte and Out and About.

At the beginning of the week we needed to go downtown to Service Canada to renew the licence sticker.  While there we walked for awhile on the Waterfront Trail.  The Moira River runs through Belleville and along most of it there is a wonderful walking trail.

The part of the trail we walked that day was the part at the lower end of Front Street, under Dundas Street and under the CP rail line to Victoria Harbour.

It was a dull day and there were a few sprinkles of rain.  This is a view looking north along the river to the bridge at Bridge Street.

The Canada Geese were having a fun time walking on the ice and then swimming in the open patches of water.   We’ve heard and seen a few flocks of geese honking and flying overhead.

The swans are back on the river.

There was a small group of hooded merganser ducks close to the side, probably on the ice, but as soon as they heard a slight noise they were off across the water.

A bit further along there were several Mallard ducks enjoying a swim.

I’m sharing with Our World Tuesday.
