Saturday Morning Post



A week in pictures......


Looking through the kitchen window.


 Cormorants and a gull at Black Rock Beach in Point Pleasant Park in Halifax.


Leaves and pine needles on deck.


Smoking section at the shop.


Wouldn't be a mid-century shop without 'Marilyn'.


Taking a breather.


Giant chain at the park.


The tree we had felled this week...a Poplar.


This anchor and chain came from an air-craft carrier that was stationed in Halifax
 during the 50's and 60's. The chain runs all the way to the harbour.


Where that felled tree came from....among the Birches.


Kayaker.


Multi-coloured beach pebbles.


Brand-spanking new 'prayer flags'....should last for 2 or so years.


Mound on mound of rocks at the beach.


Change of tide.


Portion of clam shell on beach.


Surfer heading in.


Looks good enough to eat!


Got this child's tricycle this week for the shop.
Needs a little TLC but otherwise in great shape.


J is for Jim.


Everyone needs reassurance now and again.

  2. i love Saturday just for what you show, never hesitate, i love this sea, that you know, I love sophie, that you know as well, I love trees and \i hate to think of a birch being cut down unless it's from mother Nature, I love photos of your shops, and books that you get, I have books on the Titanic, one written by Hitler i still haven't opened it but \i know he had once been a great artist, how could he have done , an artist is a love of nature of the world, of people, how is that even possible...i have so many books, and i things were possible I would visit your shop, with your permission take photos, and buy a few things...maybe? and yes the view from your kitchen oh you are blessed, and you deserve it. Then you have that little tiny bike, oh such sweet memories oh my boy when he was a toddler (he's about to become a dad himself) oh and those gorgeous stones, i could go one, but you know what you have, and I thank you for sharing it. Have a great Thanksgiving Weekend!

  4. Love the compositions and your creative perspectives, Jim. My son has the same blue Patagonia jacket as Ron, but my Jim's is patched with duct tape where he tore a sleeve. I see my favorite lounge chair just outside your kitchen window. Hope you're having a scrumptious Thanksgiving weekend.

      Thanks for tip on 'mending' Patagonia Nanopuffs....can't beat duct tape!!

  5. I love your Saturday morning posts, Jim! They always have wonderful photos, and this one did not disappoint. That old trike brings back memories of my trike days. I'm sure the Gaspe kayakers will appreciate the photos that you email them. I'm sure they have no inkling of what a great photographer you are. And I enjoyed that photos of Ron. I'm currently going through my old photos albums and getting pictures into boxes. This morning it was the Wolfville photos. I think I have more of Ron than anyone else. LOL! He was such a ham! Have a Happy Thanksgiving, my friend!

    1. Thanks Louise, I always enjoy doing the Saturday post........a look back at our week.
      HAM! I would say so!! Always enjoys making people happy and laugh. I believe it is his 'mission'.....make people happy. He laughs a lot and has taught me to do so as well...maybe not as much as he does, but I am 'lighter' since I met him many years ago.

  8. looking like the cooler weather has arrived, down jacket, warm boots, and then there are the rocks, logs, beach and kayakers, but my pick of the day is " View from my window" if I were there, I would print, frame and keep,?? sell, auction off, it is so beautiful, almost a Monet in shade and colouring. Have a wonderful week. Jean.p.s. 3 p.m. on Sunday and 24Celsius.

    1. I think of you often Sharon when I see and photograph these stones at the beach. You would have a field day there! We'd have to leave you there for the day!!

      Yes, one BIG chain and ANCHOR....remember it was attached to an aircraft carrier.

    My prayer flags are going into their 3rd winter. Was thinking of replacing them in the spring.

    1. Why thank you, Stew.
      We probably get 3 years as well and by then they are pretty tattered!
