I woke up today feeling lazy. I could see that it was a beautiful day outside, but I couldn’t get my bum moving out the door.
I was chatting with a good friend of mine talking about how nice out it finally is, but that I was so unmotivated… she said:
I know I always feel better after some fresh air and a hike. That was a nice kick in the butt. Thanks Melissa!
I wound up wandering around town looking for interesting things to photograph. I stopped at these 2 old cars that I’ve been meaning to stop and snap for ages now.
From there I stopped to visit some cows. I love cows. Well most animals actually. But there’s something really sweet about cows.
The one wouldn’t take his eyes off me the whole time, even as I drove away. I wonder what he was thinking?
After that I was off to Apps’ Mill. A popular hiking spot nearby. It was pretty busy today, but still quite peaceful. I find every time I visit a trail I’ve been to before, I always seem to notice different things.
The old abandoned mill in the forest:
The side of the mill is a popular spot for locals to take family portraits:
You can’t get inside, which is a bummer, because it looks like there’s a lot of cool old stuff in there:
Surrounding the mill, there’s a small trail system that winds around the river.
You often find shelters there. I think it’s from the school programs they run out of the visitors centre, but I’m not sure.
It was a great day to get out! My favorite hikes are in the fall when everything green is turning red, but there’s something so nice about being out there when everything white is melting!
And wouldn’t you know it, after getting outside and breathing in all that fresh air, I felt great!
I hope you’re all having a wonderful Family Day weekend!
