Never Tire


Around 4 PM yesterday afternoon, Sophie and I hopped in the car
and went down the road to MacDonald Hill.

I wanted to visit our shoppe, MCM, and see how things are going.


I took Sophie out before I went upstairs to the shoppe.
And this is what we saw from atop the hill.


One lone surfer and his board....


The fog just off shore moving in for the night.....


Actually pretty quickly......


You can see the top of MacDonald House to the right.
We are on the third floor facing this way, 
which would be northwest.

Maybe you can appreciate why we never get tired of the view from here.

    1. Hi Jean. I have been 'collecting' for so many years now for specifically the purpose of keeping me occupied in my retirement.....and....keep me out of trouble. It was fun to collect and also I hope fun to sell to people who will enjoy it as much as I did!
      Happy Saturday evening to you and Hugh!

  3. Spectacular shots, Jim! Every one! I loved the composition in the first one, with the strong lines moving into the middle left ~ even the trees cooperated! We went on a tour at the National Gallery for over an hour, and the guide showed us exactly three paintings. One can say a lot about a piece of art, let me tell you. And your photographs are Art! But I'll spare you the analysis! This set is gorgeous!

    1. I bet those three paintings will be forever etched in your mind, how wonderful.
      For that first photo I twisted my camera a quarter turn to see how it would turn out.
      Our please an ANALYSIS would be great!

    1. HI Keith. Every day brings a different view at this spot, depending on the sun and the wind. Always an exhilarating joy to be here.

  5. I can easily appreciate why you never get tired of it. Your photos really tell the story? So, do the "Mid-Century Maniacs" have any stock left?

    1. Alight fog can do wonders for photos. Things are beginning to sell Mitchell. I suspect, as does Amy of Fancy Lucky Shoppe where we are located, that as the our season begins to roll in a couple of weeks, we will sell out! At least that is the goal. And we get our basement back.....to refill!! lol

    1. Hayley-Eszti, IT IS FREEZING there. Wet and dry suits are a must most of the year here except for maybe a few weeks in September. So many men and women surf here all year round. BR-R!
      Always good to see you.

    1. Thank you , Pat. This is a good spot to practice camera shots of all kinds. And, the fog does help the final result if it is not too thick.

    1. The wind here at times, Lorraine, would definitely take your breath away!!
      Since we all came from the ocean many millions of years ago, I couldn't think of a better place to rest.
      thanks Lorraine.

    1. This view is always spectacular, Vicki. And fog is perfect for photography as long as it's not to thick.
      I hope we do well too.....I want to empty the basement out so that I can begin to 'collect' vintage chairs!!
