My Miggs and I love the out doors and all though the temps were a frigid -25 °C with the sun shining and no winds the temps quickly raised up to –15 °C by the time we got back from our photo walk .
Sun shining from the southeast and the moon fading in the south west .
My walking and photo buddy , Our Miggs .
We have a lot of open and unoccupied land in our village valley !
With lots of wild life lurking around !
In the main part of the village and surrounding areas all you see and smell this time of year is wonderful wood smoke from all the woodstoves and fireplaces !
We have a lovely river named the Otter River that runs around and through our village valley !
This river is fairly wide and this time of year huge blocks of ice form and get jammed into the banks .
All along the river there is a beautiful forest as is at the top of the valley !
Lots of the folks here including us have large or a good sized property and some are on the rivers bank !
I just love this little cottage that backs on to the river ! This is a nice neighbours little cottage . We know most of the folks that live in this valley village .
Lots of different pine trees here in our valley !
This is one of my favourite little old barns just down the road from us ! I think it is over 100 years old as many of the cottages and farm houses are here in this village valley !
A good friend and neighbours bird houses on the stump at the end of their drive way ! This is there house below !
At the end of this road straight ahead there is an old bridge that was built in the 1700s and is still in use today as it goes over the river to a long dead end road ! Winter photos of that another day !
A marsh near by our farm house behind this marsh is a swampy area in the woods I love going there in the summers to take photos !
Pine cones galore all different shapes and sizes !
With a few other things growing !
This is all the beauty and more of our valley village what we see every day on our walks and this isn't the entire village either it is a very wide spread valley and village sometimes we walk the entire area it takes us over an hour and a half to walk the main roads and longer if you walk all the streets !
And from where we started our walk from our cozy farm house built in 1895 !
Home Sweet Home !
