January 27?!

(January 27, 2015 )

This morning as I hiked up Notch Hill in Nanoose Bay, I found myself  yet again amazed at the beauty I am surrounded by! A gradual hill with a natural worn trail winding through a forest of Pine & Arbutus trees. It is a sunny, warm January day and I am actually wearing shorts and a tank top! Although I do realize this weather is not good news for the ski hills and can certainly make for a difficult, dry summer....I was definitely enjoying it at that moment.
When I see our golf courses busy, the sea wall full of walkers and I can hike a "mountain" in shorts, it is hard for me to imagine the snow that covers much of the rest of Canada right now. 
Feeling thankful!
