Happy Friday afternoon. Hopefully you all are just about done with your weeks and ready to enjoy a fun Fall weekend. We’ve got lots going on including the Cumberland Harvest Fair where we’ll be making binoculars and other coolness from 10 a.m. to Noon tomorrow.
If you missed our morning post today, Deepa took a peek into the mystery of babies who are born in the caul. Check it out HERE.
This week with our NeighbourWood Walk crew we hit the Courtenay Air Park to check out the birds as they make their way into town for the Winter. We spotted great blue herron, seagulls (of course), bald eagles, Canada goose and all kinds of other creatures. We also totally used what we learned from Jocie’s column on leaf identification to find piles and piles of leaves we could actually identify.
Despite the seriously chilly weather and threat of rain, the kids (and adults) got a great walk in, acquired some much needed coffee and cocoa, and spent a fun afternoon discovering all of the coolness (and some things they maybe shouldn’t be doing) in nature.
There are some great new photos added to our NeighbourWood Walks Fall 2009 photo album. Check out all of the fun we’ve had this session HERE.
Everyone is welcome at the walks, which are at 12:15 p.m. Thursdays. We have three left including:
Oct. 22 – Oyster River Nature Park ocean salmon run
Oct. 29 – Lazo Marsh costume walk
Nov. 5 – Morrison Creek salmon run watch and wrap up party
