"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Sunday Stroll--Alternate Location

Today's stroll took place in my present location, the cottage on the Big Lake, and I was accompanied by the dogs.

First we walked down the hill to see the brook--very full and noisy after torrential rains last night and early this morning. It passes under a neighbour's house on its way into the lake.

Foaming water around the boulders.

The delicate flower of the plant sometimes known as wintergreen, also called partridge berry.

The tiniest mushrooms I've ever seen.

After our woodland stroll, we wandered down to the dock to feed the fish. Jewel gobbles up some green blueberries.

The entire crop is not in danger--there are plenty of berries well beyond her reach!

After strolling, Ruth cools down in the lake. A couple of days ago, after two years of refusing to go down the rocks to get into the lake, she decided it was worth doing. Now we can hardly keep her out of the water!

Happy strolls to you. See more of them at A Quiet Country House.
