Stand Tall and Face the Sun

Last night Katie and I went to meet up with Take a HIKE Caledon Ladies Hiking Group. Last week Mira organized a hike at Campbell’s Cross farm in their sunflower fields to help fundraise money to place a bench on the Caledon Trailway “The Great Trail” in memory of Karolina, Klara, Lilianna, and Mila Ciasullo.

Together with Campbell’s Cross Farm, the Take a Hike Caledon Ladies Group and Mom and Daughter Yoga with Bella and Anna raised a total of $1855.00.

The hike was sold out within hours and 45 members of the Take a HIKE Crew plus their families joined. (As normal Katie and our crew brought up the rear…stopping to take photos amongst the flowers while the rest of the group marched on!)

Together with the Town of Caledon and Glen Echo Nurseries the bench and plaque will now be ordered and the bench will be placed in a spot favoured by Karolina. Thank you so much Mira for organizing this hike plus the bench to be placed on the trail.

As we socially distanced and waited for everyone to join Katie go to check out the chickens…she was mighty comfy and didn’t want to leave this spot, but sunflowers awaited!

The sun was just started to set and it was a perfect August evening. We met up at 6pm… to take this little hike. I’ve been so thankful that on our adventures this summer Darcy has been able to capture some special memories of Katie and I.

Sometimes you just need go on a sunflower hike and dance in the field.

Thank you Mira so much for capturing the next three images…it was nice to see you. I’ve missed doing hikes, but totally understand how they have been postponed because of COVID.
