The temperature rose to 20 degrees Celsius today, and of course, the wind also blew all day, until evening. The evening was peaceful and warm, tempting us to get outside and enjoy SPRING!
The question was, "Where would we venture to?" I convinced my son to come with me. He was the driver. We couldn't decide where to go, so we decided to flip a quarter. Chance would determine where we would go. Heads...turn right, tails...turn left. Sometimes heads was go straight and tails was turn.
We ended up near the South Saskatchewan River a few kilometres from where we live and a place where we had never ventured to before.
The area was absolutely beautiful. Giant ice chunks were swiftly floating down the river.

Canada Geese, snow geese, ducks, robins, woodpeckers, bees and many other flying creatures were also present.

The delightful clay cliffs, glorious ancient cottonwood trees, scratchy wild rose bushes, golden dry grass and deer worn paths were some of the highlights of our "left to chance" adventure.

|Oh, dear, stop the truck... There is a deer!|

My son thanked me for getting him out of the house. What a grand SPRING evening we had!
Isn't it positively fun to be spontaneous?
