to enjoy the most beautiful day in Nature, hiking. There were views to be enjoyed, tranquility to be savoured and the over riding joy of simply being with loved ones.
|Just prior to this photo, our oldest son (jokester that he is), spread his arms wide and began running across the meadow, teasing me with the lyrics from the Sound of Music. Of course in about 2 seconds, he then burst into laughter!|
Never one to miss an opportunity, I schlep along beyond, wielding my camera. I captured shots of my menfolk walking across fallen logs to cross creeks and candid shots of their smiling faces making the most of a much needed day away from it all. Oh, and there were pictures taken of wildflowers.

I hope all my fellow Canadians enjoyed a joyous day!
