Thanksgiving walk in the woods
Our tradition is to have a family hike in the woods over the Thanksgiving weekend. Since we are still under renovation here, we decided not to drive out too far for our hike but rather to stay close to home this year - enjoying a nearby neighbourhood park with it's wooded trails. We found the last sweet wild raspberries to nibble on, gorgeous coloured leaves, the tiniest acorns, fungus and forest mushrooms, logs to balance on, a spider web glistening in the sun, leaf piles to jump and stomp around in, a shady place to stop for a snack. Sometimes the most special places are the most simple and close at hand. We just need the time to look and explore.
