An Urban Hike
When would you rather have rain - on the weekend or during the week? If I could choose the weather, it couldn't be any better than what we're currently enjoying. Any clouds and rain have passed through during the week with wonderful sunny weather on the weekends.
Today was a day that belied the calendar. A good day for an urban hike along some of the many trails that criss cross Victoria.
We started by wandering through a subdivision not far from our home. Wandering is a most apt word here as we used Tim's phone GPS to backtrack and find our way a couple of times.
We saw this lovely little garden, full of charm and still productive, even in October. Good ideas for deer and rabbit protection, too.
Along the Lochside Trail bicycles of all sizes and shapes rang their bells to warn pedestrians. Things we saw: Cows and fields, overarching branches, geese overhead, ducks in the water, a lake, and this fine sculpture of Farmer Roy.
Several apple trees with small pink glowing fruit - not crabapples because Tim ate one and said it was sweet, but a bit mealy.
Once more off the trail into another subdivision where this old pickup truck caught my eye. Isn't the colour great?
A beautiful urban hike and a great start to the week.
