Hiking the last km

 
There were pears, apples grapes and other berries
beside the trail
 
 
Sun all day long
 
 
at lunch time we finished the Maitland trail
 
 
we had lunch looking at this mansion
 
 
Then for the afternoon we hiked 12+ km on the rail-trail
 
 
It was easy hiking but almost 20km in total is a lot of hiking
 
 
The rail-trail can be done by bike too
although there was one tree that we had to climb over

Maitland River flowing fast

 
high water
 
 
and fast flowing
 
 
due to lots of rain
 
 
still some nice colours
 
 
 
the footbridge in Goderich close to where we started
 
 
 
lots of nice lookouts

Classis Meeting


 
we got lots of papers to look through

 
Do you know the girl on the left Olga & Angie?
 
 
Used to come here with youth stuff
 
 
such a nice back yard, but such crappy weather
 

 
I had taken boots along to go for a hike but it was very muddy

These were small sweet potatoes, gathered after the harvest
real gleanings


 Loud banging while cutting vegetables at Reapers in Moorefield

Last week was the first week and there was lots of crying.
This week was way better.

Fall at it's best

 
Lots of wood laying around
 
 
Filled with mushrooms
 
 
These green sprigs are ready to come out in the spring
 
 
 
what they are looking at is not a rock
 
 
but a large puff ball, they are edible but not yummy
 
 
love the water and the colours

Maitland

 
 Some people pictures
 
 
Because Henriette was there
 
 
I am actually in several pictures
 
 
We like to get our feet wet
they get warm from all the hiking

Maitland trail 3rd day


 
 

The trail is often close to the river



Sometimes through a farm field


 
a lot of up and down
 
 
this time with beautiful coloured trees
 
 
the trail leads through little streams
with slippery rocks
 
 
under the highway
 
and for a little while along a road

Start Coffee-Break & Story-Hour

 
Our speaker the first morning was Glynis Belec
 
 
She spoke about "staying a Float"
with her PFD or in her analogy Jesus
 
 
 
Glynis is a writer and is just starting out as a speaker
I love it when people share their own story
thanks Glynis!
