A Different Path
Beach walks may still be my favourite, but the other day Gracie and I went for a walk around Redwing Farm, on Salt Spring Island. The gentle rolling contours of the land were a delight to my eye.
Gracie found racing through the daisies rather delightful herself.
Next to fences, gates are a most important feature of the farm landscape...
...although frustrating for small doggies who just want to be on the other side.
The path leads down to a lake.
The cool, gray day meant no swimmers or lounging on the dock.
The waterlilies were beautiful though.
On the way back up the hill we spied an old house through the overgrown vines.
Back to the field with the daisies.
And the wild gives way to the cultivated, and we're almost back home.
Take off our boots...
...hang up our hat...
...and yes, life is good.
P.S. I just found out that the neighbouring farm has Angora goats! See some gorgeous photos at Bullock Lake Farm
