One of my favourite walks, any time of the year, is around Kent's Pond, which is not that far from our house, and a place that is instantly relaxing. You're in the woods in moments, and you forget that a few hundred metres away cars are zooming on the Parkway, Higgins Line or Portugal Cove Road. You can't hear much except the birds, the ducks on the pond, the wind weaving through the trees and sometimes just the reeds scratching each other.
I snapped this last evening, during a family trot around Kent's Pond (for what's it worth, my favourite trail in St. John's). I used the phone on my BlackBerry, which is certainly limited in what it can do, but did just fine for this kind of shot.
Dot Dot Dot is Morse code for the letter 'S,' the full message Guglielmo Marconi claimed to have received atop Signal Hill in St. John's in 1901. It ushered in the age of telecommunications. My maternal grandfather worked as a telegraph operator for Canadian Marconi on Signal Hill for many years.
As well, I have a habit of overusing the ellipsis when I write ... as frequent readers might notice.
