With the sound of tiny flapping wings. Lots of flapping wings. Gatineau Park was obviously hosting a butterfly convention this weekend. They seemed to be everywhere, such as here:
We also saw ladybugs getting frisky, in public! Gasp!
The view, as usual, was splendid. That’s the Ottawa River in the distance.
A lovely 7 kilometre hike to end the Canada Day long weekend was just the right thing for us. Tomorrow, it’s back to the grind… at least for Mrs Thomson. For me it’s back to revising Like Stars in Heaven. I’m about three-quarters done as of right now, so it should land in my editor’s inbox this coming Tuesday. Then, I need to get back to the renos I started a few weeks ago – while working on the first draft of Howling Stars of course. I hope all my Canadian readers had a great Canada Day and to my American readers, have a great Fourth of July tomorrow.
