A (Chilly) Walk in the Woods

It turned out to be a chilly walk in the woods, but one we enjoyed nonetheless.

With my children, parents, sister, and nephews, we braved the crisp fall air (and snow!) for a walk at Lemoine Point in Kingston, ON.

When my camera wasn’t tucked inside my jacket to protect it from the unexpected snowflakes, I managed a few shots – including this one of a fluffy black squirrel pausing for a snack.

 

Parrot Bay

leafy trail

My husband, my sister, and I enjoyed a morning walk along the leaf-covered trails at Parrot Bay Conservation Area.

The trails were entirely blanketed with golden leaves and pine needles.  Blue jays swooped past us (too quickly to capture), ducks and geese squawked at us from the water, and tiny chipmunks skittered by.

Only one creature paused long enough for me to photograph…

We should do this more often.
