~~ JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH ~~


This is my view today
high up
on
Hawkin's Hill
looking over Lawrencetown Beach


The climb begins and with precision
I sniff every track
every piece of grass
and


work my way passed last years cattails
sticking up so stiff
managing to survive another one of our winters.


The incline is immediately evident
so we veer off at the 1st path
instead of taking the sharp inclined path
which I used to fly up
a few years ago.


Up on top of the hill
tucked away
erected by one or more loved ones
a statue for Katie.
~
I sniff
I approve
and
I continue on.


Heading back
along the ridge Porter's Lake looms to my right.
A slight melting of ice
gives me hope for an early spring.


On the return trek we reach the top of the incline
I spoke of above.
I see my car parked along Hwy #207
knowing that everything
has been
worth every sniff
every crunching step through snow
and
knowing
I "just can't get enough"
of my world
no matter what the season has to offer.

  1. What marvellous scenes from there, every one gives me great joy. Snow right down to the water, a hill to climb, and a car waiting, what more could a gal want?

  6. The hike up Hawkins Hill looks wonderful, SD. I was with you every step of the way! What a brilliant Nova Scotian winter day ~ exhilarating for sure.

    1. It was indeed Louise.

      I seem to manage the slope in the cooler temps better than in the humid summers.

  7. Goodness, I recognized that view right away! We lived just down the road from Lawrencetown Beach for four years back in the early 2000's. We loved walking there too. Thanks for sharing, I really enjoyed your photos!

    1. Isn't it a small world out there, eh!

      The early 2000's I owned another dog but was not a blogger. I started blogging in 2010. It is possible we passed each other along the trail if you happened to walk this area. The Atlantic View Trail has been modernized extensively and I try my best to keep it tidy.

      Hope you enjoyed visiting my blog!
      All the best in your new small town world!
