Thanksgiving weekend here in Eastern Ontario was just about as perfect weatherwise as one could ever wish for.  We were blessed with sunny skies for the most part and the clouds when they did appear were light and fluffy. Just a perfect weekend to go on a ramble and that is exactly what I did.

Initially the hounds like to bound ahead breaking trail.

However, before long they tire of that job and decide that stick chewing will be the order of the day.
(You will note that we have a severe stick shortage on the property and in order to conserve the few remaining sticks that are there, we ask that all dogs share one stick.) 

 I was surprised to find that most of the maples had lost their leaves already.  A few birch were still putting on a golden display.

Even the small hound enjoyed romping in the leaves.  Well...for a few minutes anyway....he spent most of the outing wrapped in a blanket while being carried by #1 daughter.
A very pleasant ramble it was indeed and I am so happy that we decided to go since today the weather has turned and we awoke to heavy gray skies and rain, rain, rain. 
Take time to enjoy the simple things for you never know what lies ahead.
