A late fall walk on the Eastern Trail.......

Grammie G came to spend the weekend with us for an early unorthodox Thanksgiving. Since she was here, why not take some time to get out and get some fresh air? I chose an quick n' easy place we enjoy alot - the Eastern Trail down in Scarborough. I tried to pawn the Monkey off with Bubster but his mom also had plans, so we split the difference. It worked to our advantage. I would take Bubster for a walk while she watched the Monkey during our shopping time.

The walk northward on the trail was warm and sunny, or trip back to the southard presented a brisk and strong wind. The two miles were fabulous though - although late in the season and after a couple of really strong fall storms, it was still really fallish there as you can see below.



Grammie G decided this was Autumn Olive, and the trees were loaded!

Out of reach Winterberries - they don't look real!

"Whoops, we're headed the wrong way!"

A last look over the marsh - what a beautiful walk it was!
