Hiking Through 2019

FeaturedHiking Through 2019

A pictorial blog of some of the hikes I did in 2019.

March 2019 found us in beautiful Chile, hiking with Foothills Hiking Chile

Also in March we did some hiking in Comfort Cove, Newfoundland. The temperature was a little different than Chile.

April found us hiking down our lane and opening our new Little Free Library.:)

Hiking in Arnold’s Cove, Newfoundland

Pike’s Arm, Newfoundland

Twillingate and Pike’s Arm, Newfoundland

Change Islands, Newfoundland

Woody Point, Newfoundland ……be sure to check out Writers in Woody Point for 2020.

Sandbanks Burgeo, Newfoundland should be on everyone’s bucket list!

Twillingate, Newfoundland

Beginning in 2020, let’s do this and repeat:

Day One: Write down five things good that happened today.
Day Two: Meditate on one thing you love that makes your heart sing.
Day Three: Treat yourself to one small indulgence without guilt.
Day Four: Be good to your body and exercise and eat right.
Day Five: Commune with nature and feel how connected you are with life!

I don’t need your praise to survive. I was here first, before you were here, before you ever planted a garden. And I’ll be here when only the sun and moon are left, and the sea, and the wide field. I will constitute the field. The Wild Iris by Louise Gluck

 

 

 

 

 

 

A very small community, but this takes work. A job well done.

We met a tourist from Ontario at the top.  A kindred spirit …goes off the beaten path.

 

Blackberries

My favourite scent…blackberry bushes in summer.

 

Ode to the Blackberry Bush

(with apologies to John Denver)

by Carol Fudge

 

You fill up my senses

with a yearning for long ago moments

like lilacs in summer

like a storm in the cove

like seagulls crying

come fill me again.

Come let me inhale you

let my mind gently wonder

let peace flow through me.

Let me walk through your bushes

let me sit down beside you

let me always remember.
Come let me touch you

come fill me again.

You fill up my senses

like newly cut grass

like the warmth of the sun

like the smell of the ocean

come fill me again.

 

 

Go… explore, go off the beaten path.
