Saturday Morning Post
MacDonald Hill as seen from the beach.
My shop is in that house just right of centre.
First freeze-0ver of pond at the Point Pleasant Park yesterday.
Even too cold for Sophie!
During storms and very high tides, these stones are tossed way up over the dunes.
Ron and Sophie waiting for me.
In and out.
Someone placed these three stones to have a perfect view.
Wood, grass and rocks.
The ducks are on the pond......(to quote my high school vice-principal from the 60's).
On a cold November day along the boardwalk.
Spectacular sunsets lately.
End of the line for this dune grass.

Is It Over Yet?
November in Nova Scotia (and just maybe everywhere else in the Northern Hemisphere)
has got to be the toughest month of the year.
Firstly, it gets dark at 4:30 PM!
Secondly, it gets colder by the day.
Thirdly, we witness all the 'green' disappear (that can't be good for anyone).
Fourthly, it can be warm/cool/cold/freezing at any time any day.
Fifthly, the sky can be dark yet the sun appears somewhere out of a crack
in the sky and it begins to snow.(as in the photo below)
Sixthly (is there any such thing as a sixthly?), it takes the whole month to feel like you have
had a good nights sleep.
I could go on but will leave the rest up to you, fellow bloggers.
What are your feelings about the month of November?
Jean in New Zealand...you may reply if you wish!! lol

A Shooting At High Noon
Howdy 'pilgrims' !
Couldn't resist saying that!
Yesterday we were at the beach around the noon hour.
If this was summer I would never attempt to shoot directly into the sun and water.
But it is mid-November and the sun is not as powerful here in Nova Scotia.
This is what I got....with a little help from Sophie (I discovered later).
All these photos are SOOC....Straight Out Of Camera.
You just never know unless you try.

To give you a 'feel' of walking through the dune grass at the beach.......
The green is fading quickly and we are left with this golden field.
We usually just follow Sophie through this maze
and she will always come back to us
to make sure we haven't gone anywhere.

This past week Thich Nhat Hanh had a serious brain hemorrhage in France.
He is being monitored closely by medical staff.
His community is asking for everyone to send positive thoughts/energy his way.
Today's quote by
Thich Nhat Hanh
(click to learn more) is taken from
'The Pocket Thich Nhat Hanh'
by Shambhala Pocket Classics.
"The basic condition of happiness is freedom.
If there is something on your mind that you keep thinking about,
then you are caught and have no freedom.
If you are caught in sorrow and regret about the past,
or if you are anxious about what will happen to you in the future,
then you are not really free to enjoy the many wonders of life
that are available in the here and now.
The blue sky, the beautiful trees, the lovely faces of children, the flowers,
and the birds can nourish and heal us in the present moment."
