Thanksgiving Week-end in Kings County

Over the past couple of days I toured around various side roads in our area. The autumn leaves are peaking now and, on a sunny day, they’re putting on quite a show!

The wind was blowing quite strongly yesterday up at the #WashedemoakLake. The water was rough and dark but the trees lit by the sun were showing off.

Today Joel and I decided to explore the new Connector Road between #FundyNationalPark and the #FundyTrailParkway. It’s a lovely road, just recently opened, giving easier access all the way from St. Martins to Alma and beyond in both directions.

The blueberry fields have turned red in celebration of the season.

As the song says, “The hills are alive….” with colour!

Shrubs clinging to the rocky roadside slopes got in on the party as well.

At the #WaterfordWaterworks the water level was low and there weren’t as many colourful leaves on display, but the sound of the rushing water was refreshing on this nippy autumn morning.

Despite the grousing about restrictions on social and family gatherings due to the increasing Covid 19 illnesses, we all have much to be thankful for this week-end. We live in a place that offers four very distinct seasons – each beautiful in its own way. We have various types of technology for staying in touch with friends and family. We have shade from the heat of summer and warmth from the fireplace on cool nights. In other words, at least in this corner of the increasingly stressful world, we have peace, food, friends and beauty to admire – a lot to be very thankful for. Be grateful for what you have.
