A snow squall coming across the hills.
I can't believe it's almost a week since I've posted. The days are flying by as fast as the leaves off the trees it seems. A week ago we went for a Sunday drive to a service in a little old country church in back of Nackawic NB, at a place called Hartfield. The day was a mix of sun and cloud and the temperature was just above freezing. It was windy and there were snow squalls now and then from the dark clouds. Our destination was the Hartfield Community Church where there was a wood stove with a great fire burning in it right in the middle of the church pews. You talk about a warm welcome! The wood heat felt so good on that blustery day especially as the sun sunk into darkness. Enjoy the photos.
Along the road through Mactaquac country.
When we arrived at the church this is what I saw when we parked in front of it. How beautiful!
The church is over 100 years old and I think this maple tree has been around for almost as long.
Snow squall with sunbeams.
And when the sun came out it was brilliant!
Inside the little church with the wood stove in the centre. The pews are really unusual and quite beautiful, don't you think? I've never seen ones like this before and the wood seats are one solid piece.
Note the old style and pattern of wood boards on the walls.
The old pulpit was painted a soft yellow.
I hope you enjoyed our Sunday drive and the little country church.
Today is Sunday again and it's been a rainy and windy day but mild at 12C. It's nice to be in our cozy home this afternoon where I can drink hot tea, blog and watch the leaves blow from their branches. There is still lots of colour out there - mostly rust, orange and gold - so it's still very beautiful. Yesterday morning I got down to the river and took some photos which I'll share soon. Thank you so much for visiting and all your kind comments. I wish you all a blessed week ahead.
