I am very thankful that he did run out today as I forgot all about him and went on the computer until I heard a knock on the door. It was my neighbour Lauren. Boots used to visit Bailey the dog when Tom and Karina lived there. Lauren has two wonderful cats so I guess he senses a kindred spirit behind the door.
In any event, I invited Lauren in for a little visit and we enjoyed a cup of coffee together and a muffin. She mentioned that she was going to Westdale so I hitched a ride with her.
It was such a great pleasure for me to show her the trail as she had never been there before.
Between the two of us, we got some really lovely shots. She is far more agile than I am, so she was able to get some shots that I would not have been able to get.
|At the beginning of the trail|
Birds chirp, squirrels scurry around, and most wonderfully, we saw two deer further down the path. We could not get close enough to them to take their pictures which is a great pity. At first we thought that they might be very large dogs, but as we got closer, we were able to see that they were deers.
It is amazing that in such a large city as Hamilton, these nature spots are full of such life. What a real blessing that people can get there easily, either by city bus or by car. I continue to be so amazed at the beauty of Hamilton.
