Our Call this week for Pilgrimage pictures was a huge success. Lots from the Trinity Trotters from Amherst:
I am a member of the Trinity Trotters from Amherst NS. I have pictures that I took when I went to Northport Park and beach on the Northumberland Strait on July 9th.
Some pictures with the large sandbars were taken about 4 hours into low tide. There are two pictures of jellyfish which were very plentiful.
The “My friend the old tree” was submitted by Jean Smith. The photo was taken during her walk near Amherst this week. The other 3 photos are some of the places Kathy and I pass by during our bike rides throughout the Amherst Shore/Linden area. (Beach/Farming/Fishing country) In all 3 photos you can see the Northumberland Strait. Lots of beautiful scenery to enjoy. (But it doesn’t make the hills any easier!!) Have a great week.
Word for the Coming Week: BEAUTY
We will use this word to reflect on as we walk, run or roll through our week.
Some words may inspire you with exciting new insights while others may disturb your thinking or challenge your beliefs. Sometimes you will love or take comfort in what you are hearing, while other times you may feel discomfort or resistance. Pay attention to all as this is part of your journey.
Are We There Yet?
Since arriving at our destination last week, we have turned NORTH to travel up the BC interior on our way to the Yukon. We did not quite make it to Whitehorse, but we are enjoying the trip so far.
Our route takes us from Victoria up route 97 north. We pass through communities like Hells Gate, Chasm, 100 Mile House, 150 Mile House (interesting names right?). We follow the Fraser River further north to Quesnel, swinging east as 97 moves away from the river up to Prince George. Then it's West along route 16 past the Seven Sisters Provincial Park and Protected area, passing beautiful mountain ranges, moving north again up route 37. This takes us all the way to the Yukon boarder, where we pause for the week in the community of Watson Lake.
This town in Yukon is located at mile 635 on the Alaska Highway close to the British Columbia border. The Canada 2016 Census put the population at 790.
