roller ski (Cedar Mills) 1:00:00 [3] 14.0 km (4:17 / km)

Another bright clear crisp fall day. After a morning of more purging and packing Goose and I took a break and roller skied in the Cedar Mills subdivision. It's pretty ideal with rolling terrain, good pavement and very. very few cars. Signs of a wealthy scenic neighbourhood, with spread out houses. I'm sure they love us parking at the end of their driveway and clacking around in our obnoxiously bright orange jackets. We had a nice ski.

trail Run (HV trail) 45:00 [3] 5.0 km (9:00 / km)

Another bright clear fall day. Got back from a London visit and headed out to retrieve some of the controls we'd set out for the school orienteering. AN interrupted run along the valley and through the park on a gorgeous afternoon - still lots of colours.

canoeing (Humber) 3:00:00 [3] 7.5 km (24:00 / km)

Another bright beautiful morning. Nicola Ross had arranged to go down the Humber with Goose as research for another book. She said she was bringing a photographer who would just take a few photos from the Duffy's bridge and then leave them to their downriver trip. The photographer turned out to be Fred Webster so I talked him into just going down the river with me in another canoe and getting some other photos. It didn't take much arm twisting. It was a very slow trip as neither Nicola nor Fred was really interested in paddling a lot they were more interested in the scenery - which was gorgeous with the fall colours still vibrant - and getting some pictures. There were a lot of photo ops, and a few canoe-drags around log jams. Wonderful weather and place to be on such a fine day. Portaged from the Duffy's Lane trail access parking lot and paddled from there to our house.
2 PM

cycling (road) 45:00 [3] 16.0 km (2:49 / km)

Nicola, Goose and I cycled back up to the put-in to get the cars. I kept cycling around the big block just because it was still so nice out. It did started clouding over but I had a nice little ride.

cycling (road) 1:30:00 [3] 30.0 km (3:00 / km)

What a beauty day! The colours were even more vivid around here. Did a hilly ride with lots of stops to take photos of the spectacularly red-pink maples under bright blue skies.

hiking (Kolapore) 2:00:00 [3] 7.0 km (17:09 / km)

Clear, crisp morning - but not frosty. The coffee served on the deck warmed us up followed by breakfast. I'm liking this glamping at Bash's and Bent's and their hospitality:)
The four of us, plus the 2 dogs then headed out on a trail through their property, onto crown land for a bit of bushwhacking to get to the Bruce Trail and glorious vistas aflame with fall colours. We followed the Bruce to Metcalfe Rock and oohed and aahed at the lookouts there from the escarpment - spectacular! Then we hiked on some of the Kolapore trails -along with lots of other hikers. We ended up at the UofT cabin where 4 people were working on repairs. So of course Bent wanted to chat and see their work since he was the cabin manager back in the day. The 4 who were there were delighted to show him and we had a nice little chat before heading back out on the trail, bushwhacking again back to the Bruce and back to the house. With no dog issues!. Lunch was lovely on the sunshine on the deck.
Great visit - thanks to Bash and Bent for hosting us! Also, I'm thankful for living where I do, and being able to get out and see the beauty of the season with friends who love it too. I know I'm lucky and I am truly grateful
Happy Thanksgiving!
4 PM

cycling (road) 43:00 [3] 17.0 km (2:32 / km)

After a whirlwind of house cleaning and some food prep, there was just enough time for a quick ride. It was too nice an afternoon not to get out again.
Up Duffy's, across Castlederg to Mt. Hope and home. Beautiful.
