After walking for about 2 km on a stretch of the Walter Bean Grand River trail near Old Zeller Dr. in Kitchener I took the narrow side trails that access the Grand in a variety of scenic places. I came across several showy sunflower plants that looked as if they were leaning out over the bank to get a better look at the water. I was just preparing to take a picture when I noticed a kayaker making his way down river. I was surprised to see him take the narrow channel around a small island and come close to the bank. Sometimes serendipity can really help make a picture.
