I was down by the river this morning, near the Bessborough Hotel. I came across a pair of geese and their half grown offspring. It was interesting to see them at that size, versus the cute little goslings you always see in tv footage. I kept my distance, having no interest in a pair of overprotective parents coming after me. I would imagine a group of that size would eat a lot of food.

The South Saskatchewan is currently flowing at a strong clip due to the amount of rain that has fallen in Alberta in the last few weeks further upstream. I haven't seen the water that high in Saskatoon in a good long time. Fortunately no one has been stupid enough to fall in and put their lives at risk.
