Since we have moved to the Durham region of the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario, Canada, one of our favorite places for a walk is along Oshawa’s shore, in the Lakeview Park. We like walking there admiring beautiful Lake Ontario, which is so huge, that is often impossible or hard to see the other side. We think this is one of the most beautiful and interesting parts of Oshawa and the whole Durham region.
Sometimes the lake is very quiet and there are almost no weaves, like on this beautiful day in August, when we also had blue sky and interestingly shaped white clouds, as you can see in a couple of pictures below.
It was a so beautiful, peaceful day, perfect to enjoy the nature and a moment of reflection. Here you can see part of Oshawa’s Pier with a lighthouse standing at the end of the jetty.
Below is another view on Lake Ontario from the Oshawa Pier’s area. This time the picture was taken in June. The weather was also nice, but the sky was more overcast.
A view on the Oshawa’s Pier area on the same day in June. A couple of people enjoy quiet moments walking along Oshawa’s Pier jetty.
Often huge international cargo ships arrive and park in the Oshawa’s Pier area. I think no passengers’ ships are allowed to park there.
You can see some more cargo ships below. They are silently waiting to be unloaded or perhaps to take some new cargo.
Here I was just enjoining a moment of silence and contemplating the view on Lake Ontario from the end of jetty in Oshawa’s harbor on this very quiet day in June.
There were some very nice flowers growing close to the Oshawa’s Pier, as you can see in the couple of pictures below.
When walking further along the shore towards the west, in the opposite direction from the pier’s area, I have also admired beautiful views on Lake Ontario and Oshawa harbor. There were plenty of wild flowers growing in one areas along the trail, as you can see in the picture below.
There are many waling and biking trails connected to the Lakeview Park in Oshawa. I have just walked another 15-20 minutes further down along the shore towards Toronto and encounter a flock of wild geese enjoying this sunny day.
There is often plenty of geese visible swimming in Lake Ontario or siting at its shores in Oshawa, as well as in many other areas along the lake. Most of the geese leave in the fall to return in the spring, but sometimes some of them remain during the winter months.
I hope you have enjoyed this article and maybe I have encouraged you to go on a walk along the Lake Ontario in Oshawa area.
