First Day, First Photos~

It is really hard take an ugly photograph in Canada.

We came to see the leaves change,

and they are just starting.

We are in Alberta now,

heading tomorrow into the mountains where wifi will be spotty.

Will check in when the satellite enables, but until then, cheers to you from geraniums growing in the middle of a river!

  1. Haha, those geraniums are so out of place, but amaze for their tenacity to just be themselves anyway Cindy 🤣 And Canada is a beautiful country, and with the Autumn change she will bloom even more. Great share kind lady 😀❤️🙏🏽

    • I have seen New England in the fall. My parents lived in New Hampshire. Stunning. I am happy you are traveling with me Kathy. You will make the trip better! Although I may be out of wifi range for a while. I’ll catch up with you when I can დ

  2. Welcome to Canada. Alberta is great but if you want to see incredible leaf colours, come to the Ottawa Valley and northern Ontario. Another two weeks and it will be awesome.

    • Gorgeous part of the country but I missed it in the fall. I have been to Quebec in the fall, in the forest, and Nova Scotia, and fell in love. We were due to return, had a cabin rented, and covid hit დ

  3. Of course, there is no way I cannot agree with you re Canada 🙂 It is a tad early for the changing of the leaves but still. heading up to the mountains sounds divine. I’ve not been in way too long.
    Love those flowers in the middle of the stream!
    Making your way East? 🙂

  4. Wow, Cindy – these photos are, indeed, gorgeous!
    I’ve never been to Alberta and never even imagined how beautiful it could be. I live vicariously through your travels, my friend. Thank you for taking me with you. Safe journeys.

  5. If you came up to view the colour of the fall leaves Cindy you are in the wrong province! I lived in Alberta for years. The only colours they are get are yellow.
    You want to go over to Ontario or Quebec where they have Maples in abundance!

    • I have been to Quebec in the fall in a cabin alone in the woods. Nova Scotia too. It was so lovely. We rebooked when covid hit. I adore the golden yellows of larches and aspens here, with bits of red for contrast. It is truly gorgeous. დ

  6. I’ve never been to Canada, but have come close in Vermont and New Hampshire where the scenery is similar and have to agree…it’s hard to make a bad picture. Enjoy your time there.

  7. I agree with you on Canada, Cindy. You could probably close your eyes and snap photos and they would still come out beautiful. 🙂 Your eye always adds a special touch, however. I’m sure the color will miraculously appear as you climb into the Rockies! Peggy and I are working our way North as well, having zipped across the country from Virginia. Tomorrow we will be in Badlands National Park. –Curt

  8. I loved my time in Alberta and I agree with you: there are no bad pictures to be had. I can’t wait to see your photos once you reach the mountains. I hope you get lots of Moose shots as well.

    • I love Quebec, and especially the forests. We were supposed to go back in a cabin in the woods when covid hit and changed everybody’s lives. We are traveling a bit, but then settling in a little cabin in the big woods. I am so happy you are traveling with me Eileen. You will make the experience richer. Cheers to you my friend დდ

  10. Love those geraniums growing in the river! What beautiful scenery, Cindy! I’m a bit surprised you didn’t see more Autumn color, but I don’t know why I should be. After all, it’s still Summer … technically!

    • We are still here and it is snowing!! The larches are turning so the color will be ramping up in the next few weeks. Many leaves are already falling. Love it. Cheers to you Debbie დ

  11. Thot Alberta send you this comment to let you know that these pics are absolutely stunning and pristine. Have a fabulous week, my friend! ◟(◔ั₀◔ั )◞ ༘❤️❤️❤️🌈
