Beauty berry looking lovely in the snow... The snow starting falling again after my first venture out. I went for a second walk to the west end of the quay this time.
This Japanese maple is looking like delicate lace with the snow amongst its branches.

I you click on the picture it should enlarge and you will see some loons swimming down the river with snow on their backs.

By the time I got my telephoto lens on they were almost out of sight, but click and you will see them just before the the solid wall.

The river is filled with snow covered ice along this smaller arm. Port Royal is the community across the river from us. They are planning on starting a small ferry between them and our side of the river in the future.

This small island may be made into a park that you will be able to access from the future ferry.
This fountain is still spewing water, but if you look at the second picture below you will see all the ice forming on the base.
The ice makes quite a pretty design on its own. It will be interesting to see what it looks like in a few more days.
