Thanksgiving Hike AT Boyne Valley Provincial Park

2015-01-12 Thanksgiving Monday hike Bruce Trail 077 Boyne Valley Provincial Park is part of the Bruce Trail.

Where I only have gone on two hikes with my Hubby. He and his friends have almost completed all of the Bruce Trail that goes all the way from Niagara, Ontario to Tobermory2015-01-12 Thanksgiving Monday hike Bruce Trail 151 a small community located at the northern tip of the Bruce Peninsula in the municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula. It is 300 km northwest of Toronto.

So he has only two or three hikes that he needs to still walk and with it being so nice and warm on this past Thanksgiving Monday. The opportunity to go and hike the 15 km in this Boyne Valley was just perfect. Off I went on a perfect day together with my Hubby.

Just had to sit on top of one of these hay bales
Just had to sit on top of one of these hay bales with a little help from my Hubby as they are a bit high….and yes I am not a spring chicken

A Visit to Kingston, Ontario

Several Year ago…let’s say four Years  to be exact, over the Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend my Husband and I had this great opportunity to have  a few days to ourselves.  We had a wonderful cottage in the woods available to us and the weather was ok.  Not the very best but just to be together and having time with each other was nice. 

We went on an Artist open house tour all though the nearby area and came across several very neat places and Artists.  It is fantastic to see what some very Creative people come up with and what they call Art.  Each has their own style and ideas.  We visited some very interesting styles of homes….just amazing.  My eyes just took it all in.

On our walks in the forest we found some other wonderful places as well and took some beautiful pictures.  Just have a look and see for yourself.
