Searching For Charo

This morning I went searching for Charo the cat, who has not come home in 12 days. The plan was to visit all the places he likes to wander off to. So I set out along the Back Road. Whenever I met someone I would stop to ask if they had seen him. But everyone said no they hadn’t.

The apples have begun to fall .

I turned right onto River Road and followed it to the end of Amity, where there is a little walkway that leads out to Britannia Road. I then walked the Culham Trail.. I came across 5 pretty caterpillars that I picked up and carried to safety. One of them seemed to really like me.

I then walked the Culham Trail, following the River.

I crossed the bridges, and stopped here and there to look at the river and take photos. Their were several Salmon lying dead in the water.

When I reached PineCliff Park I climbed the short hill then turned left onto Kenninghall Boulevard. Last year Charo spent weeks hanging out in this neighborhood, and so I looked about and called for him. But he was no where to be found. An older woman told me that she would keep an eye open for him. I thanked her. Then a younger woman told me the same thing. I thanked her, too.

I then took the path that leads back towards Riverview Heights. I met an elderly gentleman who lives on Suburban Drive, who told me that he had seen a gray cat crossing the road a week ago. I asked him about his wife who I met in Springtime. He informed me that she was now in a nursing home. Sometimes changes come so fast.

I took the short cut to Ardsley Street, and stopped to photograph number 24, which is an older house. Most likely one of the oldest in town. It is very pretty.

I was now back at Brittania. When I was 13, I had to take a bus to school. In the mornings I would wait with the other children beside a small lamppost. Strange, but I don’t believe it has worked in ages, and looks almost out of place now. But it’s still there.

I eventually arrived back where I started. I will go look for Charo again later. Then tomorrow as well, if he hasn’t returned by then.
