rich in colour and texture,
this weekend we have been treated to clear blue skies and sunny warm days.
Perfect weather for walking...
and a bonus while we are at Quarter Deck Cottage on Pender Island.
Golden hues tinged with green.
We walked slowly so that I could stop and take pictures
besides the fact that I have been recently diagnosed with shin splints...
my doctor suggested that I slow my walking pace and perhaps the distance that I travel
to make sure that I have supportive shoes
to replace my walking shoes at least every year if not every 6 months.
This is a painful condition and so I am heeding his advice.
The distance we covered was just a tad under 3 km
the road was perfect for our walk
very little car traffic
homes and acreages dotted every so often along the byway
the leaves were stunning in their beauty
This old home was situated at the end of the road overlooking the ocean.
I'd love to peek inside but this is as close as we could get to it.
The road curved ahead and we spied this boat...
We discovered a lovely sandy beach at the end of the road with a public beach access.
Mr. HB saw a mink run into the brush just ahead.
Kelp and maple leaves mingling together on the beach.
Walking with the leaves crunching neath our feet...
a glorious day
with dappled sunshine peeking through the canopy of trees.
Feeling such gratitude to be able to enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds us.
How was your weekend ?
