And through the skunk cabbage. Holding hands. Talking quietly. Taking in the sounds around us. Running on boardwalks.

Light "hiking" on this boardwalk

Erin and Cam

Breathing the fresh cool air. Feeling lost while knowing exactly where we are. Taking our time. Being present and in the now.

Lucy walked with Lily a lot of the way

One of my favourite walks on the edge of town. This walk takes us to the edge of the old dump. It’s kind of fun to see all the old glass and metal garbage. Reminds me of how utterly disgusting our modern plastic garbage is. I hate most plastic.


Lots of intact liquor bottles

    Lovely pictures. I remember when my two boys were young, taking them on hikes. There are so many beautiful trails available in and around Rupert. Anne, I had promised Lily some extra stickers for her and Lief and now I have them sitting in a plastic ziploc bag. How can I get them to you or your hubby? Drop them off? thanks, LG

    hi, I remember seeing link to song “The Frost” on your blog sometime ago, then it disappeared from the web, which made me real sad as I just loved it. I found it again today and I thought I would let you know. You can listen to it on author’s Erin Propp site.

    Thanks everyone and Happy Thanksgiving!

    Larissa- I sent you an email. I had been hoping to have you for supper but have been so busy here and not making plans with you!

    Ania- Thank you thank you! I LOVE that song and would be happy to purchase it but it hasn’t been for sale. I see they have an album finally for sale!

    I love those old dumps, too, strangely. I spent an hour this summer distracted, finding one in the woods near my parents’ house, poking around in the old glass and rusted metal. Today’s dumps will never be charming, not in 1000 years. The skunk cabbage is so beautiful! Had forgotten about that.

    these photos are so gorgeous set up with more of your writing. i am so enjoying reading your words lately. they feel like a hug : ) xoxo

    hmmm, couldn’t find it … can you link to them or their site/CD please, annie?

  10. Annie says:

    Marlene- Nope, in 1000 years the *first* disposable diapers will likely just start decomposing. Yuck.

    Erin- I didn’t have a chance to find that video yet either. It wasn’t obvious and I just need to go back and look. Here’s a link to their website. I LOVED that song but it’s not on their new album for sale. :(

    hi, just to clarify about “The Frost” – you can’t find it on Red Moon Road site or CD because their former singer Erin Propp was the author and she took the song with her when she left the band. I saw this information in one of the comments on YouTube and started keeping track of her uploads in hopes she would have a new version of the song. So you can find it on her site:
