I hope all of you lovely mothers out there had a lovely Mother's Day yesterday. Here on the Eastern Avalon of Newfoundland and Labrador it reached over 20 degrees Celsius and, despite the general overcast skies by the time we went for a hike (it had been much nicer earlier), we had a grand time.
We parked and hiked past the Geo Centre located at the bottom of Signal Hill and then proceeded to follow DH's sense of direction to a path he could see off in the distance.
I was determined to be out without Mudder's home knit socks and my hiking shoes for the first time in 2016.
One area we walked in was barren and blustery with the wind. I love landscape like this. I thought the colours of lichen on the rocks would make for a lovely hand dyed colour way in some nice yarn.
And back down the hill to the Geo Centre we went. By this time, Youngest was begging DH and I in turn to get 'up' so rather than climb to the top of the hill and Cabot Tower, we angled back towards the car park and the van.
Happy belated Mother's Day 2016 my dear readers!
