Fall Colours at Vincent Massey Park

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. Beautiful season – beautiful photos. I’m able to look out the window and see all those gorgeous colours in my backyard. Although I SHOULD take a walk to the nearby park.
    Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and that you’re doing well!

    • Thank you and happy Thanksgiving to you too! Best time of the year to enjoy the outdoors, I like that fresh air after the humid summer we had. Plus these fall colours are gorgeous, aren’t they?

  2. You are so right with the damp thing. It’s been raining here in Berlin for 3 days straight now. Urgh. Anyway, another thing I miss is the fall colors. Somehow I have this idea that the North American East Coast fall colors is just way better than the others. Even in NY State, we had glorious and wonderful color changes.

    • Yep, NY State has the same fall rhapsody… lovely place to enjoy the fall as well!

      Ugh for rain. That’s the downside of fall in Europe as I remember it!

  3. Hi Zhu,
    Hoping that you are feeling good.
    I love the perspectives here, with of course, the colors. Our friends & family all asked if we saw the colors when we went… Unfortunately, just a wee bit(too early).

    The rocks with the reflection of the sky is beautiful & serene.

    Bises.

    • Thank you! It’s still early for colours even now actually, a lot of places are more green than yellow/red. But I can feel the cold coming, so it shouldn’t last…

  4. 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…?
