The lane at dusk last week.
Here we are into the first week of September already. The official summer is over as schools are back in and the yellow buses are back on the roads everywhere. Vacations are over too.....unless you're a senior or retired and enjoy traveling in the cooler fall months. The weather is changing to a more fallish air some mornings and nights, the leaves are slowly fading or turning colour on the trees, and the apple orchards and farms are busy gathering in for the end of the season.
I'm sharing some photos of goings on around here the past couple of weeks. Enjoy.
Good Morning Glory!
Downtown Fredericton on a recent Saturday
Chocolate zucchini cake. Yummy!
Beautiful sunset on the water.
Walk at the beaver pond trails in Mactaquac Park. This one was in the evening and the light was beautiful.
The lowering sun shining through the trees along the trail.
We even saw a beaver!!
The Mactaquac Marina in the evening.
Another day, another hike, another trail. We followed underneath the 'Treego' zip line that goes through the trees in Mactaquac Park. We couldn't see them at first but it was like there were Ewoks (remember them from Star Wars?) running through the treetops talking and laughing.
We finally had a bonfire on Sunday evening. It's been either very dry with fire bans on, or too windy to have one, all summer. The only other one we had was July 1. Needless to say we had a lot of very dry brush that burst into flames. Thankfully it was a warm and calm evening for one.
A gorgeous sunset from our backyard.
We are enjoying some very balmy tropical weather this week with temperatures in the mid-upper 20's with high humidity that makes it feel like well into the 30's. I rather like it as I'm pretty sure this will be the last of our true summer weather unless a tropical storm comes up the coast later on.
My sister is still here. She hopes to leave next week once she gets the ok from her eye doctor. It's been a long haul and she is very anxious to be home. Prayers much appreciated!
Thank you for visiting today. Hopefully I'll be back on track soon to post more often and to visit you. Life has been interesting (to say the least) this summer and I feel like it has gone by too fast with way too much stress. But, I'm grateful that I have my health and family and can find some joy in each day.
