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

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

 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!
