Fall Mornings

Amazing mornings this weekend –

Saturday at Neck Point!  The skies were clear and blue, the sun was shining and the wind was blowing in across the Strait and life was good!  We had a lazy walk around the park, there were a lot of people out with dogs and children for Sophie to greet and I ran into a friend and had a quick conversation – it was a lovely way to start the day.

And Sunday at Hemer Park was just as beautiful.  The sunlight through the trees seems to be the theme of the weekend as I took quite a few pictures of “light and leaves”.

Fall is most definitely coming now.  The breeze has a bite and the leaves are turning on the branches.  In some cases the leaves show vibrant colour, maples, oaks and aspens; or becoming thin and brittle, some of the oak leaves at Neck Point were see through; or simply wilting and dying off like the Indian Plum at Hemer!

There were birds a plenty at Hemer.  A Great Blue Heron was perched on a drowned fence post in the marsh and there were ducks scattered across  the surface of the marsh as well.

We walked a new path through Hemer.  One that branched off to the right and took us to the other side of the marsh.  The undergrowth was a little different.  There were less hemlock and pine and more maple and aspen trees.  There was a long drowned piece of forest in a low lying expanse of land.

The Moss was beautiful, hanging and glowing through the branches of the trees.

And Moss, there was moss hanging from almost every branch at some points.  The moss glowed an amazing green in the sunlight.  It was beautiful.

The walk moved us up and down through small valleys around the park and eventually brought us out to the road above the parking lot.  Lovely walk.

The park is drier than I have ever seen it – it has been a very long, warm and dry summer for us.  The rains have come now – I hope that they stay for a while.

Happy Walking
