A DRIVE THROUGH RURAL MANITOBA

Recently,while sitting on the deck and enjoying a warm day,this Robin wanted to have his picture taken. He posed so perfectly.



I love driving around the countryside,with no destination but to find beauty wherever I go.Such was the day when I stopped at a small park and climbed the look-out tower. The tower is not very tall,but since it is situated on a hill,one can look far into the surrounding area.


A little further down the road,this horse caught my attention. He was standing in a patch of perfect sunlight and waiting for someone to take a picture of him.


It was early fall and the leaves were just beginning to show some color.I love that patchwork look on the hillside.


I hope you enjoyed this short ride through part of my world. I enjoyed your company and hope we can do it again real soon.
I must now go drive that school bus and then spend the day at an Inservice.
 May you find beauty wherever you go today.

  7. Gorgeous pictures... Bet that Robin is hoping that your weather will stay warm for awhile longer....

    Love the horse... His 'paint job' is wonderful...

    You are getting some pretty colors. We are too --slowly.

    I used to sleep through those 'in-service' meetings... ha

    Hugs,

  10. Ruth, great post and images! You make me homesick for Manitoba in the fall. I did always enjoy it. But we have a pretty nice fall out here too! Lots of colour and mild temps. Today it's 20 degrees and they are harvesting Broccoli and Cauliflower in the field across the street from us.
