Standing at the marina, I relish the sight and sounds of the waves. Sea birds soar overhead on the lookout for fish. Some bob about on the waves. I imagine I can smell the ocean. Just standing beside this great river is a tonic for my marine starved senses.
Incorporated as a city in 1860, Morrisburg has a population of just over 2,700. It is a lovely, friendly, slow paced town with enough stores to satisfy all of my shopping needs. Yesterday, when I visited there, was cold with a very strong wind. But I strolled the marina's jetty and filled my lungs with the fresh spring air. And I came away feeling that I'd just had a restorative little vacation.

The wind was so strong that I had difficulty holding the camera steady for the following video. So, sorry for the shakes. The music, called 'River Walk' is a copyright free music track on my iMac.
