Welcome to Outdoor Wednesday!
I want to show you what it looks like to live in Manitoba.
Manitoba is considered to be a Prairie Province, therefore there are no significant hills waiting around the bend for your kids to throw their sled or toboggan down on for a ride.
This is the type of structure that you will find in many parks, for the kids to play on. It's a man-made hill of sorts.
I live within walking distance of the Red River and this is what the it looked like just a few weeks ago. There was just a skim of ice, with lots of open water.
Do you see the Maple Leaf flying on the opposite shore? I love photos of our flag.
This is what the Red River looked like a couple of days ago, it's quickly freezing over. It is deceiving though. Although the ice looks to be thick, it isn't and many people have gone through the ice on swamps and even on the river, recently. One example is two little boys, one was quickly rescued and the second one was not. The divers are still searching for a six-year old boy named Nathaniel, it's heart breaking to think of it.
It was only about 3:30 when I started home that particular day, but the sun was already low in the sky, showing it's radiant colors.
Remember to check out more great photos over at Susan's Outdoor Wednesday at A Southern Daydreamer. I'm also joining Watery Wednesday, another very fun meme, check it out.
Have a beautiful day, my friends.
