Thurso Marsh, Parc national de Plaisance by 

  • 6th Placement in the Top Ten CALM PONDS in a Park challange in All Parks group on the 2010-08-04.

Captured at Parc national de Plaisance, Thurso, Quebec.

Plaisance—the name evokes the pleasantness of a landscape broken by bays, ponds, and marshes. Cyclists and pedestrians can explore this landscape to their heart’s content, thanks to a shuttle bus that runs from one headland to the other. In spring, Plaisance puts on a performance with thousands of Canada Geese. Come summer, it’s a paradise for ducks, herons, ospreys, and dozens of other species. It’s also the Ottawa River’s soft breeze that makes the tall grasses bend and toss in a wave-like roll across the Petite Presqu’île, not far from the campground.
