It is said that what people don't understand, they will criticize.
I think it's true in regards to my city.
I lived in BC in the large metropolis of
Vancouver for 18 years.
When we prepared to move to Winnipeg, many of the people that I talked to about it, could not understand why we would move to a city that had harsh Winters and mosquitoes.
Seemingly, that was all they knew about it.
But in truth, Winnipeg is a very beautiful city.
We have a population of about 700,000 and are on the edge of the prairies,
built in the middle of an urban forest.
I have shown you many photos of the four seasons and there is great beauty in all of them.
And one year we had mosquitoes, but they are not an ongoing problem.
While on my walk one day last week,
I took many photos and so I've made a couple of collages with them.
In the large photo directly above, the shiny path that you see through the trees is the sun reflecting on the Red River.
These were all taken with my iPhone 5.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing the park-like area where I live.
Have a good day!
