Our picnic at Echo Dale Park

Our picnic at Echo Dale Park 

Today we went out to Echo Dale Park for a picnic. Echo Dale is located along the South Saskatchewan River, close to Redcliff and Medicine Hat, Alberta. It was a sizzling-hot summer’s day—in the thirties Celsius—so finding refuge under the trees was a necessity. Unfortunately, our digital camera is not a high-end model, so we couldn’t take pictures of the many species of birds that we saw on our walk along the river—we even saw an eagle in flight, gliding gracefully above the cliffs. The food we ate was barbecued chicken, potato salad, carrot salad, and cucumber salad. For dessert we had fruit melange—a perfect menu for a picnic. Yummy! Enough said, here’s a few pictures.

    These are precious moments when one is in communion with nature and with “other” while being fully aware of being present in community.
