Read Those Signs


Since the weather has been very warm lately 
we have been going down to the beach or the river
where it is usually at least 5 degrees cooler than the city.
So no hikes in the city park lately.


Yesterday we went 'down to the river to pray',  (click for a great tune!!)
oopps, that's a song and totally another post!!


Where was I....oh yes, at the river yesterday, 
well we were very aware that this river can be treacherous.
And had no plans to jump in.


Not to say that Sophie didn't have her plans for a dip!
Rest assured everyone, this first part of the river,
which heads out to the Atlantic Ocean,
is very safe and has a little way to go
before it becomes tricky.


And besides, look who was supervising the whole thing!

  1. Ron, Wave again. Is that a wonderfully large home, up on a rise, with stunning views, or a restaurant? or something else? Sophie, take care in that water. Greetings to all, Jean.

    1. LOL! Ron is waving back Jean!
      That is a home in a very beautiful location by the river. It is completely 'off grid' having it's own power system of solar panels.
      Sophie was very safe, no worries.

  2. I'm glad that you knew the river currents well enough to know that Sophie would be safe.
    It looks like a lovely cool spot at which to spend a hot afternoon!

    1. Hi Craig. At the farther end of the river it is very unsafe for everyone, even dogs. The river is rushing out into the ocean as the ocean (at high tide) is rushing in....creating a dangerous rip-current. People have been 'lost' there. We don't take any chances.
      It is a great spot to cool off.

  4. I absoloutely love being by the water. Going to beaches, rivers, and lakes are all in my opinion the best way to spend a day!

    1. Hi Hayley-Eszti. Being by water outside can be and is so good for you. I have read that it is the abundance of ions present by the water that makes one feel better. Now if you could live on a beach Hayley (but not a beach bum!!)you would feel so good most of the time.

  5. Nice photos, Jim! I love all the colours in them. It looks like a really nice place to hang out. Between you and Ron, both with cameras in hand, I'm sure every inch of the area is photographed!

    1. We haven't been there much this season Martha and it was good to be back....it is not far from our place at all. So no excuse! We'll be there more this fall as Sophie loves the river....as did our previous dog, Jessie.

    1. Oh it is Kathy! I guess we kind of take this all for granted a little as we have lived in this area for 23 years now. But when we do spend time here we really appreciate it a lot.

  10. What a pleasure it must be to watch the river running by. A lovely lazy type day.

    1. Just the sound/energy coming from the river Sharon can be exhilarating. The weather can be unpredictable here and we always have to have 'gear' in the car....just in case.
