Fall Colours at Vincent Massey Park

18

Summer came and went and even if we still have some warm days left, it is definitely October. Already. Green Day sang “Wake Me Up When September Ends” but I somehow missed the memo—I can’t believe it’s already Thanksgiving today.

And don’t even remind me my due date is approaching.

That said, I don’t mind fall in Canada because it’s such a beautiful season. It is less damp than in Europe and the famous stunning Eat Coast fall colours always amaze me. Besides, we had a really hot summer and cooler temperatures are actually a nice change.

This Thanksgiving weekend, we headed to Vincent Massey Park to take some fall colours pictures. The sun didn’t show up but the moody grey sky actually heightened the beginning of the transition to fall, and the pictures came out okay.

Happy Thanksgiving fellow Canadians!

  1. Hi Zhu!

    Congratulations for Mark! Just curious, why did you choose the name Mark?

    I always love your fall pictures, especially the pictures of Parliament. One day I plan to visit our National Capitol. I have been to Toronto and Montreal and I have found them to be very friendly places.

    I was amazed in Toronto when a policeman came up to me on horseback at City Hall. I didn’t know that they rode horses in Toronto. He asked me where I was from and I said Saskatchewan. He said OK and that I didn’t look like the usual douchebags that hang around Yonge Street. It must be a local tourist attraction, I looked but I didn’t see any, maybe it was the wrong time of day to see them come out. All I seen was normal people. What is a “douchebag” and how do you spot them?

    • Thank you!

      Feng suggested “Mark” and I loved it right away. We wanted a “simple” name that could work in both English and French and other languages.

      I’m surprised the policeman in Toronto spoke like that! Weird. I guess by “douchebags” he meant people hanging out there and looking for trouble…?
