I was taking note of how I walk or hike and i realize that at times i do not always pick up my feet and that i am sure is what happened to me on Saturday.

Back on the Cabot Trail and I must say this route has been very spectacular with great vistas!!!

Thinking about the moose from last night I did receive a lovely e mail from my Brother thanking me for naming the Moose after him but he requests that from now on he wants to be known as Malcolm down the middle!!!   This is in reference to his golf Tee shots that always go down the middle…….now if you believe that one you are banished from the blog for life!!!

Around 3pm I pulled into the small town of Margaree Forks where there is a hike I want to do tomorrow.  At the Visitors centre I also found out there is a ceilidh at 8pm in the Barn…I had read about this so excited to go there later. 

I stopped at the little park by the library

This is how I keep my perly’s so white!!!

I came back to the library to spend the night…so goodbye August hello September!!
