Saturday Morning Post


Potpourri of a week......


This is just about the size this spider really was at the park.
I have never seen a spider cross its legs before!


I bought a set of 12.....Royal Doulton 'Summer Song'.


Always waiting for Jim to catch up!!


Crab shell and seaweed.


Empty path through dune grass.


Not empty any longer.


A sign along the 'Atlantic View Trail'.


Nothing like a good SHAKE!


Going up....


Well worth the climb!


Berry cluster at the park.


Season pretty much over for this year.

  1. Wow, what a gorgeous part of the world, I love it!
    Be careful around spiders, I had a spider bite this week, and it was painful. Your spider reminds me of a brown recluse spider, which is a VENOMOUS spider! Yours could not be though, since it looks like you don't have it as far north as you are. Another reason I love where you are!

    1. Hi Kay. It is a great place to live, I must say.
      Our spiders aren't venomous but can sure give a nasty bite!! I have had a few of those. Yes, there are some advantages about living up here in the 'tundra'!! lol

  2. Wow! I'm first today! It's sad to say goodbye to summer ~ the ocean from the hilltop looks suddenly COLDER! Pretty, pretty teacups. I used to play a song called "Shake" by Otis Redding for my kiddos when they needed to move. Nothin' like a great shake. Have a great weekend, Jim!

    2. firstly, I hope you are safe from all the flooding taking place in Colorado Louise. Looks pretty nasty in some places.

      Oh you'll always be 'first' in our books Louise!!

      I couldn't resist those tea cups.....now to sell them.
      A goos weekend to you too.

  3. Maybe the spider had an itch? Always love the view from atop McDonald's Hill. Yes, the season is coming to a close, sigh... I hope the day went well, yesterday.

    1. Actually Sharon you are very close.....MacDonald Hill is opposite here (that point of land at the end of the beach). This 'hill' is somewhat higher and gives a wider view.
      My uncles funeral went very well. Time to see and spend time with family.

  4. Great collection, Jim! I had a good laugh with that spider with its legs crossed. I guess he's just lounging around waiting for lunch to show up:) Summer is done but autumn is around the corner with its own splendour. Every season has something pretty to offer for us photo nuts!

    1. That it was Debra! But just a little too close for comfort.

  6. I like Royal Doulton. Maybe the spider had a broken leg.

    Love,

    1. Like most good things, Janie, I think the older RD was better quality before they started mass producing.
      I never thought about a broken leg.....I still she/he was faking and just waiting.....

  7. Any snakes there, Jim? I love that dune grass but wonder what you can see when walking through it! NO snakes at my high altitude home but a different story on the Front Range. Plenty of spiders, though. Still raining here in CO - we're in a state of emergency. Our Breck home is high and dry, but the Blue Rive through town is going over its banks. Many areas are cut off with roads and bridges washed away. Soon we'll need an ark, and I'll be shaking like Sophie!

    1. No snakes in this area near the beach....at least I have not seen any. All snakes in Nova Scotia are of the friendly garden variety, Garter and Grass snakes mostly. We have a few in the garden and they keep pretty much to themselves.

      We are watching the floods in CO Barb! Incredible to see and I can imagine terrifying to witness first hand. Good to hear you are away from the worst of it. Take care of yourselves.

  10. Not sure that is the spiders leg. There are already four legs on the right side

    perhaps a spinneret grooming?

    I always appreciate a bug photo. Heading to the beach this weekend, hoping for fair weather
