The Sun Sinks in the West

At this time of year, as we approach our shortest day of the year, the sun is much lower on the horizon.  No doubt you’ve noticed that by the shadows on your favourite spots in the garden, on the deck or on your favourite walk.

A blessed view!

A couple of evenings ago I looked out over Eagle Lake and I was mesmerized by the beauty of the Indian Summer scene.  The sun was very low on the horizon but it cast an amazing warmth over the hills on the other side of the lake.  Just another moment to be savoured and enjoyed. 

It hardly feels like November.

Today, Sophie and I took a walk up to the top of the hills above Sir Sam’s Ski area and we came across Margaret Turney and her mom walking their dogs.  It was the kind of day made for walking, for soaking in the sun and the quiet of the hills.  The only tear in the quiet was the sound of the hounds and the occasional gun report as the boys in orange kill their quarry.  Just a couple more days and then all will be serene once again.  A quiet walk is fun enough for me.

Last morning on Canoe FM tomorrow … and then a break away for a couple of weeks.  We’re quite ready for it.  Colin and Rebecca (and Liam) are house sitting and dog sitting while we are away.  We appreciate their “gift”.
