Thanksgiving has passed in a blurr, with guests, walks in the woods, art tours, and turkey dinner! This year we were blessed with amazing weather - sunny and warm all Thanksgiving weekend, and it made for great times outdoors. We hiked Old Baldy on Saturday, with hundreds of others, and the view from the cliffs was amazing.

There are also two nearby art tours. On Saturday we headed for Clarksburg and the art galleries, part of the 'tour of the arts'. The Loft Galley in particular had spectacular large canvasses, paintings of the Niagara Escarpment in all seasons. On the way home we stopped at one of the apple farms to check out the pies and pumpkins.

Sunday we headed west to the village of Walter's Falls and visited several studios or workshops on the 'Escarpment Studio Tour'. We enjoy seeing the studios and homes of the artists as much as the art itself, and on this tour there are two woodcarving workshops with amazing inlaid bowls, bird decoys and wooden toys.

Then Thanksgiving is over, and it's on to the late October chores.
