Come take a walk with us...

"Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow." Helen Keller


In the midst of the busyness of Thanksgiving weekend, we were fortunate enough to go on a few lovely nature walks. One of our favourite activities to do when we need a bit of downtime, is bring the camera, scout out the area and snap some gorgeous pictures. The three of us were in Combermere and Charlotte gave us a tour of a hidden away chapel. The day was warm, the light was beautiful, and the inspiration was everywhere! After a steep hike up the hill we were greeted with a tiny, stone church. It is an icon of the past, complete with a wooden altar and pew. We couldn't stop taking different art photos! It was such fun.

Later during the weekend we took another walk down by the Ottawa river. We are very grateful to be only minutes away from sailboats, quaking ducks and pretty river rocks. The day was also extremely lovely, with fluffy white clouds and clear blue skies. We also managed to find a few colourful autumn leaves to our delight. For some reason this year we find our trees not as a vivid,  there seems to be more browns and yellows, and not so much fiery reds and oranges. Is it like that in your area?

If you are feeling like you need to be art inspired, take your camera and go for a little stroll. Your body, mind and spirit will thank you! 
Enjoy the picture walk with us! Hope you all had a happy weekend full of turkey, family and friends.
