October Gave a Party….

FeaturedOctober Gave a Party….

The leaves by hundreds came..

The Chestnuts, Oaks and Maples,

And leaves of every name.

The Sunshine spread a carpet,

And everything was grand,

Miss Weather led the dancing,

Professor Wind the band.

October’s Party by George Cooper

Corner Brook provided a perfect venue for October’s Party. We did a couple of trails but none as beautiful as those in and around Margaret Bowater Park.

Corner Brook, Newfoundland

Glynmill Inn through the trees. The inn was built in 1923 by architect Andrew Cobb.

The Chestnuts came in yellow,

The Oaks in crimson dressed;

The lovely Misses Maple

In scarlet looked their best;

All balanced to their partners,

And gaily fluttered by;

The sight was like a rainbow

New fallen from the sky.

George Cooper

Maybe you are searching among the branches for what only appears in the roots.

Walking in the woods is one of my favourite things to do.

Then, in the rustic hollow,

at hide and seek they played,

The party closed at sundown,

And everybody stayed.

Professor Wind played louder;

They flew along the ground;

And then the party ended

In jolly ”hands around.

Diving for lunch.

Go and explore.

Now shall I walk? ”Ride,” Pleasure said: ”Walk,” Joy replied

After Saturday’s heat and humidity, the much cooler temperatures made perfect conditions for doing this hike yet again. The trail has had upgrades since we hiked it two years ago.

Interesting? Deposited in what Age?

I would rate this trail as moderate, hiking pole recommended. I loved the cold ocean air after the humidity we had experienced previously.

Early morning walk in Change Islands.

Susan Abma has just opened her studio on Change Islands. Visit Sea Salt Studio’s Facebook page and be sure and stop in and visit with Susan and Morris when you visit Change Island. I recently bought one of her smaller paintings and absolutely love her work.

Susan is from Alberta and fell in love with Change Islands some years ago .http://jensu.ca

This private summer residence is a colourful sight as you cross the tickle. We spent a great evening here with family and friends.

Catch the ferry at Farewell and go explore Change Islands.

Walking is good for solving problems – it’s like the feet are little psychiatrists.
