On the Way to North Hatley

We stop in the woods at the side of the bike trail, to visit the Massawipi River.

 

 

 

And, look! So many things to see.

 

 

 

What else can we find?

 

 

 

In this little sliver of heavenly woods— the greatest blooming of Indian Pipe that I have ever seen!

 

 

 

My camera cannot capture the masses and the expanse, for at a distance, they simply blend into the forest floor.

 

 

 

Closer and closer, to the limits of my camera. I cannot move in close enough.

Lac Massawipi

Again, we take the bike path to North Hatley.

Like the tourists, local folk, motorcyclists,

bicyclists, summer people, and retired folk,

we are ones who like to watch the lake.

École des Enfants de la Terre

Exploring before this year’s school starts, we find ourselves a swing.

Massawipi River

To bike to North Hatley, we take the dirt road that goes over the covered bridge.

Before the bridge, there is a pull-out at the Massawipi River.

The slope at the bottom is gradual.

 

 

 

It looks like a nice place to get wet.

 

 

 

The bottom is covered in small pebbles. There is no industrial debris.

 

 

 

Certainly there is agricultural run-off. Fortunately, there are no cows standing in the river.

 

 

 

Few cars pass. We are alone.

 

 

 

I am certain we will come again.

While Papa is at Work

We return to North Hatley. The bike ride there is lovely.

There is a teeny-tiny sandy beach at the spot where the pier begins, right by the main road.

 

 

 

A few rocks make a retaining wall, and where there are rocks, there are rocks to climb.

 

 

 

It is not a bad spot, small as it is.

 

 

 

It is not a bad spot to stop and play.
