Reflections in Toogood Pond

Right next to the historic village of Unionville founded in 1794 (in the Town of Markham, Ontario) there is a 33-hectare park with a partially naturalized pond and a marsh. With a university pal I had not seen since 1979, I took a leisurely stroll around Toogood Pond today. 

While we reflected on the years gone by, I also captured a few reflections for Weekend Reflections. A Great Blue Heron with three turtles on a log, a beautiful summer's day sky, and another turtle on a log surrounded by green foliage.

This park seems to be perfect for chasing reflections : there are so many of them in so different ways ! Nice sharing indeed !

Hi Francisca, the other week I am talking with you about Alabang, and then you didn't post for a week and then realizing that you are already at the other side of the world :) The airlines are really getting a lot of money from you! regards

Wonderful photos and reflections -- and how could you not love a place with that name!! (It looks like it lives up to it!).

The thumbnail made me think you had caught a gator on film. I see I'm wrong. haha. But Toogood Pond does seem to be teeming with life. Must be fun reconnecting with an old friend.

The landscape here is so peaceful! The first photo is great, Francisca, with all that life on the log.
