Yesterday evening was cold but so enchanting. Jamie and I walked through fields and a wood to get to the salt water river by our house. There, Henry is beyond happy to run and swim and get incredibly muddy with all the new forms of life. The sky and water convened before us and it felt magical . It was one of those walks that I felt compelled to take lots of photographs so thought I would share some with you!
The cold was biting with a north wind coming off the water. I wonder if you can sense how magical it was on our island last night? What makes you feel magic during your walks?
Today, there is so much work to do outside: raking, turning and mixing compost, burning of a mountain of sticks and branches, cutting up firewood, felling trees, cleaning out raspberry bush, transplanting trees, preparing potatoes and onions for planting, the list goes on! I so desperately want to return to my favourite forest on PEI for a hike but will have to wait. We haven’t been there since November or December and I miss it so much! It’s not far from our house but on a very muddy road that our car would possibly get stuck in. I’m hoping either tomorrow or sometime next week to just park on the side of the road and walk the forest road in and do one of the trails, it will only take about 5 hours… but if I pack a lunch and thermos of tea, I’ll be golden.
