Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

It's November and sunny, wow.............................

I can't believe how beautiful the weather is. It's November and its warm and sunny. So, as Laura had the day off work we decided to make the most of it. We can get snow any day now, so lets thank the Lord for sunny days.

The sun was out and the sky was grey. It looked like heaven had turned on the lights.
We went out towards our usual haunts. We didn't know if it would rain or not but as it was sunny in patches we thought it would make for some nice pictures. School was 1/2 day so Laura kept Reina home so we could take our time. We took a picnic and sat in the car to eat it.

This is Old Settlers picnic area, it was quite windy so chilly for actually sitting outside.

There is a small chapel there and so is popular for weddings.
After we ate we went up onto Miller Hill to see the view. It was still beautiful and full of colour. More into the yellows now than reds.

Lovely unpaved roads up there.

We saw no wildlife this time. The Vultures and eagles were not around.

Same views we always take but oh so pretty, I never get tired of looking. The Sleeping Bear national park bought up every farm in the area and we now have them for posterity. We can learn the history of our early pioneer families and it will never be subdivisions.

I ponder on life back then, when this was farmed and how these families managed in winter times. Here is Laura taking pictures

Probably one of the last ventures onto the dirt roads back in there.

It is after all November and those roads are not maintained in the winter months.So on we went to Leland. We just had to check out the beaches. The dead birds from last time are just about eaten up. We saw two Bald Eagles fly over. I had put the camera back in the car. Darn it.

It was a little cold but Laura managed to get wet. The waves crept up on me a couple of times so my feet got wet. We found a few beach treasures. Some blue stones, beach glass and pretty rocks.Look at this piece of woods. It is the same on both sides and to me looks like a Robin?????

I love it when I find things like that.Me on the beach looking for treasure. I thank God that I find such joy in simple things.

So home for now.
The light was very bright

It was as though Heaven shone some lights down for us. I am hoping that this weather continues for a time. It makes Winter seem shorter.
