After a visit to Wool Tyme, I grabbed a sunflower pate sandwich from Bridgehead, and scurried off to meet up with Deb Gemmell of Cabin Fever for lunch. Deb's in Ottawa this weekend, teaching and speaking to the Ottawa Knitting Guild. She only had an hour, so we sat outside and enjoyed the sunshine.

The Tay River next to Janie's was in full flood.

In fact, I must have passed more than a dozen lakes on my drive and most of them had some ice. I guess the water in these inland lakes doesn't move as much as the water in Lake Ontario, where the ice has been gone for some time.
Don't know why this huge Virginia Creeper vine on the way up the hill from the waterfront captivated me, but it did.
Arrived back in Kingston at about 5:30. Lovely day.
