Honey asked me what I wanted to do for Mother’s Day and the first thing that I thought of was the North Head Trail around Signal Hill. I haven’t done that hike since the fall – it would be a treacherous place to be with all the snow and ice we had this winter.
I was prepared with many layers and a hat and mitts, but it was surprisingly warm! I had my jacket around my waist the entire hike. I know my Ottawa friends are lounging on their decks wearing shorts with drinks in hand – however it has still been pretty cold here.
I am always in awe when I do this hike! I just can’t stop taking photos and breathing in the salt air. Although there are a few places on the hike where I need to put away my phone and concentrate so I don’t go careening down the cliff!
Even the neutral colours of the rocks stop me in my tracks to spend a few moments admiring them.
The Rockstar came with us – I think he loves this trail too!
We could even see a couple of icebergs but my iphone camera does not do them justice.
I love looking over at Fort Amherst.
I was huffing and puffing by the time I got up all the stairs at the top of Signal Hill! I have some work to do obviously! I can’t wait to head back there again! Yeah spring!
