Hi there and welcome to Friday’s Blessing List. I took a few road trips this week – not very far mind you – but who wants to go off the Island in October anyway? I had my camera in hand, ready to capture Prince Edward Island’s golden autumn gala. It won’t last much longer as we have a few blustery days coming up this weekend.
1. As I promised last week, a trip to the central part of the Island – the New Glasgow hills.
I was a few days late – it’s hard to predict the peak.
Some trees had lost their leaves but overall the colour was still brilliant.
I love the rolling hills in this part of the island.
Oh hello to you too! 🙂
2. A woodsy walk with Sarah, Kathleen, Isaiah and Peter. (Josie missed the outing as she was in pre-school – how can that be possible??)
MacPhail Woods is a lovely place to walk any time of the year, but it’s pure magic in autumn.
Isaiah was in heaven!
running down the red dirt lane.
throwing sticks and stones in the brook, (mama’s keeping a firm grip),
balancing on logs – with just a little help.
And Peter was happy too, all snug in his wrap, with Auntie Sarah.
3. We met a little friend in the woods – one who deserves her own spot in this week’s favourites.
Oh my goodness – I could have tucked her up under my arm and taken her home.
Please tell me why I don’t need a chocolate lab! I’m suffering a severe case of puppy love. ❤ Remind me we’re having twins and I don’t have time to train a puppy. Deep breath . . . I may need an intervention! 😉 )
4. Ahem! Moving on!! Knox’s Dam. My childhood friends and I spent countless happy hours here, climbing the rocks, wading the streams, catching smelts by hand in springtime and skating on the pond in winter.
It was also the spot where Roger and I had our first kiss 41 (or so) years ago! ❤
5. The Island’s narrow red clay roads are a photographer’s haven in autumn. (They’re also the bane of farmers in spring and winter but enough of that!)
It’s rare to meet traffic here, but occasionally a farm truck will come along and then some tricky vehicle maneuvers may be required. The roads are so lovely though – it’s worth the risk.
Walking along here, it’s not hard to imagine life a century ago.

I hope you enjoyed the Island’s autumn gala.
Thanks for joining me!
