A Walk... (Photo heavy!)
Yesterday DH and I went for a fine walk, exploring various trails in our rural area. We began in the town of Hawkesville where we asked for directions from the Mennonite woman of this shop:
This is the parking area. See the clothes line pulleys?
She drew us a small map and we began by walking "Mac's Way, a small beautiful area.
I took pictures of some of the things that caught my eye, plants and otherwise.
Modest homes with glorious play areas for the children. Many of the people are skilled wood workers.
An emotional moment...a bike needing a little one to ride it.
A garden I wanted to explore, but the dog would not allow it!
Nettles? A huge expanse of them!
We move on after completing this trail at the Conestogo River.
A farmer patted his pony in passing, a gentle touch!
We head toward Wallenstein, passing the Bricker Road Schoolhouse.
A giant rabbit?!
And the trail begins. OOPS! Not this way...
Several buggies pass by.
OK, we can start walking now!
Mostly Autumn scenery here.
Then the Feed Mill.
The end of the trail..for us:
As we drive to a spot for lunch, we meet these three handsome fellows. They were so surprised by us stopping to see them that they ran! How strong and impressive they are!
A fine morning out!
