New Year's Eve on a beautiful, sunny afternoon in Nova Scotia!!😊⛄

I do love winter...the sound of snow crunching as I walk. The fresh air..crisp and clean!!❤❄

This is the hill where I spent many hours sledding as a child. I was tempted today but thought I better wait until there is more snow...a softer landing!!😅🤪❄

I noticed some wildlife have visited the property in the last few days...








White-tailed deer...


American Crow...


Red Fox...


Red Squirrel...


Lastly the old Ash tree that is hibernating for winter. Awaiting the warmth of Spring to bring forth tender new leaves...

Here's to your sledding days:

[@670636,faith2hope4love] Yes I remember them well, and the very park where I used them.

You're most welcome Carol, those were the days! And if a sled or saucer could not be found, a piece of carpet or cardboard would suffice!

[@469015,SethGreene531] They are cherished memories indeed Seth!!🤗

I remember using those too as well as an inflated inner tube from a large truck tire...that was fun!!😄

Looks like a grand place to slide with more snow ,, if I want snow out here I have to go up in the mountains ,,, then back down to the beach ,,,, 🙂
faith2hope4love · 56-60, F

[@795132,Synyster] That will be interesting...the plot thickens!!🤨😝

You must be pleased with your new Premier, Doug Ford. I was very pleased he was elected. He reminds me a bit of Trump...not so politically correct!!🤭

sledding down a hill sounds like da' bomb … though today, when we look at that same hill, we just kinda' chuckle quietly. [i][c=#800000]"you gonna' show us a real hill?"[/c][/i] the kids beg.

oh yeah … happy new year to you, [@670636,faith2hope4love]
faith2hope4love · 56-60, F
[@562847,muffinman] Many friends and neighbors enjoyed sledding on this hill over the years...both young and old. Especially fun on a clear night with a full moon!!😜🌕️

How much sledding did you do as a kid?

Thank you!!😊
muffinman · 61-69, M
you right, [@f2h4l] … full moon was [i]best[/i] time to go sledding! the parents would scream for us to come inside for bed … we pretended not to hear. temps dipped well below zero … we never noticed. some of our best memories. thanks for taking me back 50+ years, faith. 😇
faith2hope4love · 56-60, F
[@562847,muffinman] I am glad to hear you enjoyed moonlight sledding as well...we were having too much fun to get cold!!😅 The hot cocoa tasted so good and warmed us up before we went to bed!!😌
Your very welcome...I enjoyed it too!!🤗
Look at that lovely blue sky against the white!
What a tranquil spot.

How nice you can revisit the scenes of those carefree, happy days of your youth.

I have many fond memories of careening down hills such as these -- sigh.
faith2hope4love · 56-60, F
[@469015,SethGreene531] Thanks so much!!🤗 Many fond memories of moonlight sledding and hot cocoa!!😊

You can always visit and we can have a race!!😜😅
[@670636,faith2hope4love] Moonlight sledding and cocoa, that sounds so incredibly enchanting.

You know, I just might!!
Would a toboggan pass for a carry-on item?🛫
Gusman · 56-60, MVIP
Absolutely stunning especially with so much blue sky.
Do you get to see the Wildlife that passes through your property?
My dream is to have a property and set up motion Cameras all around to get pictures of the owners of those footprints
faith2hope4love · 56-60, F
[@546016,Gusman] I thought you would enjoy seeing them...thank you so much, my friend!!🤗
Yes, I see the squirrels, crows and fox almost daily. Deer are nocturnal so you don't see them as much in daylight.

Many people use motion cameras to see what type wildlife are on their property or hunting locations. You would really enjoy having one. It also detects if there are any two legged creatures on your property at night!!😉🤔

I have seen some funny pictures of bears last fall...laying on a pile of apples at night while they eat and one opening a vehicle door!!🤦‍♀️😅
SageWanderer · 70-79, M
I'll need to polish the runners of my old Flexible Flyer one day. The snow looks fantastic as we deal with more rain. The yearly record has already been broken and we will end up with more than thirty inches above normal. Have a Happy New Year and enjoy!
faith2hope4love · 56-60, F
[@516380,nudewalker] You can join me on the hill with your Flexible Flyer and we will have a race!!😅😜

That is alot of rain!!😯

Happy New Year to you as well!!🥳🎊🤗

Very beautiful, not quite enough snow for sledding, but enough that it says "Happy New Year".

It DOES look beautiful there. I wish the sun were shining where I am. It's been cloudy and rainy all day, but the temp is 70°F here. Must be a global warming deal.
faith2hope4love · 56-60, F
[@176592,sophrai] That is wonderful, you are very fortunate to live in such a famous musical city. I wish I did, I would love to visit!!🎶😊
