Winter Musings

So far for 2021, I am enjoying the winter scenery!

January brought a lot of interesting hikes with lots of interesting views. We actually started the year out with a few dry days and lost snow from warmer weather, although the second half of the month brought back the snow that was happily welcomed by most, if not all, islanders. Either way, I still made my way outside to take in the view. One of my favorite places to go that’s also close to town is Anne’s Tablet. A beautiful spot for viewing downtown from a different vantage point, I find the journey to get there more interesting than the destination itself, as there are two trails to get there.

Another fun spot to visit is Fort Holmes, although this time I like it more for the destination rather than the journey… I had decided to go up the stairs on this particular day, and the stairs, covered in a thin layer of dense snow which was therefore slick, made the walk back down a little tricky. But the view was definitely worth it! Thankfully I had my ice cleats on so it wasn’t too dangerous of a journey.

The best thing about the snowfall in January was how fluffy the snow had fallen! I’m not the best at taking snowfall pictures so it was nice to have so many tries at it. Below you can see a few more photos from around town:

Until next time,
