The Blueberries Slowed Him Down

dave-hikesAs anyone who has hiked with Dave knows… you have to be prepared to be left behind as he strides on ahead. dave-on-the-atlanticHe claims he’d trip over his feet if he tried to match my slow pace.   However after years of experience he now waits at turns in the trail for me to catch up so I don’t get lost. trail-of-the-eagleYesterday we went on a hike in Salmon Cove Newfoundland. I managed to keep up with Dave for the most part because of the blueberries. blueberries-daveI’m not used to seeing blueberries in October but here in Newfoundland the trails are thick with them. blueberries

They are so juicy and sweet that Dave just couldn’t resist them. He stopped frequently to pick and eat blueberries by the handfuls. 

by-a-birch-newfoundlandWe hiked The Trail of the Eagle.  williams-rest-through-treesIt went right to the end of the peninsula across from our bed and breakfast and…..trail-of-the-eagle-pines was soooooooo incredibly lovely.  We didn’t see flowers and greenery like we would have in summer but the trail revealed its autumn beauty in interesting fungi and grasses. fungi-salmon-cove

We ended our hike with a walk along the dark sand beach. dave-on-beach

The day was so perfect and we’d had such a great walk that we did another long hike in the afternoon along a different trail. It had blueberries too. 

And guess what our hostess is making us for breakfast this morning?  Blueberry pancakes!
