Mom's Lunch Walks

For many years now I have been part of a group of 4 ladies who call ourselves "Mom's Lunch". We acquired this name as it all started with a large group of mom's going out to lunch while our children where in primary school. Over the years the numbers dwindled until we were left with the best four of us.  We have continued to get together and enjoy many wonderful times over the years from lunches, dinners, shows, shopping, road trips, Christmas parties and now we have started to go hiking once a week. Our names are Maureen R., Nancy, Marty and Maureen M. For the past two weeks we have enjoyed our two hour hikes on local trails close by. Unfortunately Marty has been busy working and unable to join us but she will when her schedule permits. We hiked some of the great trails at Huron Woods and this past week we did a walk from Doon Golf Coarse along the river and over to the Pioneer Tower. It was a windy, snowy and cold walk this past week but we had lots of fun. Below are a few of the things we saw along the way.
