It became our family tradition that every year, on Thanksgiving day we would go for a hike. After a solid breakfast, while the turkey is still marinating, we dress accordingly to the weather conditions and spend a couple of hours outside building up our appetites and – what is more important – enjoying each others company. It is such a great way to slow down and remind yourself of what really matters in life and what we are thankful for. This year we took a hike in a place that we know like a back of our hand. I don’t even know how many times we’ve been to Bronte Creek but each time it feels special and never boring. Its closeness to our home also allows us to spend more time hanging around with a minimum of time wasted on the commute. The weather was so beautiful too.
from flip flops to rubbers… quick change in the trunk
most of the trees are still green… the colour transformation starts very slowly
where is Bryan – a new edition of “where is Waldo”
we didn’t bring any snacks with us but the forest is full of goodies… wild grapes may be small but very sweet at this time of the year
falling from the tree can hurt, luckily for Bryan the dry leaves created a nice and soft cushion ;)
no matter what age, playing on the hay is always fun!
and this is exactly what I am thankful for!
