I’m just diving right in, because there’s just no catching up on this whirlwind year! I’m so glad to count blessings again with Susanne at Living to Tell the Story.
1. All this beauty . . .
Prince Edward Island in October is a kaleidoscope of colour
with so many quiet country lanes to explore
Sun-dappled, red clay roads twist along pastures and through wooded hills.
Most of the time you’ll walk in solitude
with only the sound of birds and the occasional herd of curious cows
2. Island hiking trails are another favourite outing – especially in the fall.
Mooney’s Pond is a lovely place with autumn’s red and gold mirrored in the stillness of the water.
Is there a more cheerful sound than a brook running over stones? MacPhails Woods.
3. Outings with friends.
Walking the Confederation Trail in central PEI.
We celebrated Sherry’s (CEO of the Wackies) birthday in her favourite place again this year – the beautiful rolling hills of Clyde.
The birthday girl!
Group selfie, minus the newest member of our group. Missed you Rachel!
4. Another favourite autumn spot to visit – Orwell Corner, an historic village with a working farm.
Little church in the wildwood.
I always stop to visit with the horses. When I was a little girl I would always write at the top of my Christmas wishlist – a horse and enough hay to feed it for a year. I never did get one . . . and I’ve never stopped loving them.
Such beauties and so gentle.
Look what I discovered when I got home.
See the red speck in his eye?
Look a little closer.
C’est moi! 🙂
5. Well, I can’t finish the first post in a year without an update on the family. We added four sweet grandbabies to our tribe. Here they are, all together for the very first time last August. The first thing we did was line up all the littles for the debut cousin photo shoot.
I can see it’s going to be tricky to get them all looking in the same direction 🙂
and here’s the whole family. We had almost 3 weeks together at the end of the summer. I can’t tell you how good it was to be all together again. So many wonderful memories!
Thanks so much for taking time to visit. I’ve missed many things about blogging. Hearing from you is at the top of the list!
Many, many blessings
