End of August... just have to close my eyes and we'll be approaching Christmas time. Is it me or time is accelerating? This past week we had a sneak preview of the next fall season with very cool days & nights but, again, mother nature changed her plans with an unexpected hot "July" weather this coming weekend. She's definitely encouraging us to live in the moment.
This cropped water scene shows one of the typicals platforms fixed on the edge of the Lachine Canal. In 1997, an important revitalization project from Canada Parks stenghtened its heritage vocation, and pleasure boating was reintroduced in 2002. Beside running along its path, I enjoyed doing lot of kayaking in the recent years.

Enjoy your weekend.
Thanks for your visit!
