Watching The River Flow

Elgin Heritage Park is a sweet spot to unwind and watch the placid face of the Nicomekl River, controlled by sea dams and tidal whims that spill in and out of Boundary Bay.

Thinking back on my recent visit, the slow pace of the river seemed at odds with the fast moving Bob Dylan tune called Watching the River Flow, although Dylan's 1971 lyrics (played by Love Minus Zero & Friends HERE) are no less current.

Passers by the berries, bulrushes, boats and railway track surrounding the muddy river bank likely don't know how the song goes so here's a few words:

"People disagreeing on all just about everything, yeah ... Makes you stop and all wonder why ... Oh, this ol’ river keeps on rollin’, though

"No matter what gets in the way and which way the wind does blow ... And as long as it does I’ll just sit here ... And watch the river flow"

  1. This is my first visit here, wonderful photos and I do love that header shot. Thanks Maria and wishing you a great weekend :)

  2. Watching a river flow is certainly not a bad way to wile away a few hours.

  3. Hello, it does look like a peaceful place and scene to sit and enjoy. Lovely collection of photos. Happy Monday, enjoy your day and new week!

  4. Being on or by water is always the best way for me to relax and enjoy the day. Wonderful photos!

  5. Calming scenery, and those lyrics could be a Yoga meditation. I need to keep them in mind. No matter who disagrees with me or what’s going on.........(taking a deep breath and letting things go) .... it has been a hard thing for me to accept lately).

  6. I’d like to watch the river flow sitting on that bench. It’s so peaceful but don’t get close to the river in the torrential rain in case of massive surge of water.
