Today was an awesome first full day back in Canada.

I went to a grocery store and had reverse culture shock combined with jet lag as I walked up and down the aisles looking at all the foods and choices . . .

I bought some wild salmon, dill pickles, Kraft Miracle Whip, whole wheat tortillas, canned tuna, canned sardines (I LOVE THEM), Breyer’s vanilla ice-cream, strawberries, romaine lettuce, baby carrots, and more . . . it was awesome!!!

Oh, and the weather today? Low 20s with low humidity, some clouds and a little rain that then turned into sun and clouds . . . it was absolutely GORGEOUS in contrast with high 30s plus humidex putting the temperature in the low 40s back in Changsha, China . . .

But then I’m not there anymore–I’m in CANADA!!!

p.s. There will be a few more blog posts here but I am setting up a new photography blog for my summer vacation. The name of it is Photography in Peterborough. It will take a few days to get it up and running but I expect to post my first pics tomorrow.

This restaurant sits about 100 feet away from my parent’s home in Peterborough, Ontario….after having just gotten back from China I think it’s hilarious to see and will check out what they have soon–and then contrast it with REAL Chinese food, lol.

The heat of the day was beginning to get pretty bad when I saw this worker in the park pulling what appears to be a heavy load.

I was wearing shorts and a t-shirt and was pretty hot–I don’t know how he wears long sleeves and pants while working . . .

Right beside the lotus blossom ‘garden’ area sits a fishing rental shack. There are fenced in fishing lots along this side of the lake where men (usually) fish.

The fish seem to like jumping out of the water to eat bugs and I’ve been dying to try and get a picture of this but every time I try I’m too slow and they’re already back under the water . . .

Anyways, as you can see it’s a very picturesque area right now.

In the late spring and early summer you can see a lot of dragonflies zooming around in China . . .

This guy was sunning so I took advantage and managed to capture this shot without a tripod–which is not easy!

I like the bokeh (background blur) in contrast with the wings.
