Afternoon run

I'm running a 10km Sunday after next....I've been trying to run at least twice a week for the last 4 months or so.

Today Sarah and I went for a short 6km down along the Bow River, and over onto Prince's Island.

We checked out Calgary's new (somewhat contravention) Peace Bridge (it cost the city some 24 million dollars)

 The bridge was designed by world renown architect Santiago Calatrava. We thought it looked kind of like a spinal cord wrapped in supportive vasculature.  As for the cost....sometimes it's about more than just being a utilitarian bridge.

Once we got onto Prince's Island, we ran along some of the paths until we spotted some baby geese.

While we were distracted by these 3 cuties, I looked up at the river and saw even more coming over to say hello.

Looks like it was baby geese dinner time....sooooo many fluffy goslings....almost as cute as this one 
How do goslings cross the road? : )
