Saturday Morning Post

'Soaking up summer' kind of week in the hood......

While Ron was getting a massage at MacDonald House,
Sophie and I headed through the grassy dunes to the beach yesterday.

Our 'Kousa Dogwood' is very prolific this summer with hundreds of blooms.
Here it is next to the Japanese Bloodgood.

Inspector Sophie at your service.

Yesterday this local TV network crew were at the beach interviewing
the fellow (in jeans) about his ordeal on Wednesday.....
he almost drowned. He was literally taken out by the under-current.
On the local news last evening, Sophie and I were in the background
during the interview!!
No, it wasn't planned......I was throwing the ball into the water for her.

Accessing the surf....from my perch at the shop.

Quilt wall now at the shop.

In the air seagulls look so peaceful........Zen-like.

Their favourite spot.

Speaking of Zen-like....I would imagine this is as well.

Through the trees.....

MacDonald House in the summertime.

To the ocean...

Saw this Heron across from the beach on Thursday evening.


  1. I love all the shots but the one of Ron and Sophie is lovely - so natural and un-posed.

  2. Great photos as usual…love the one of the trees. A beautiful summer day in prospect here today……23c and sunshine, the only hiccup is that I am looking after the grandkids all day and through to 11pm ! They are 5 and nearly 3. I will probably enjoy it!

  3. Gorgeous photos! I scrolled through very slowly, enjoying the beauty with my morning coffee. Think Sophie's happiness is also Zen-like.

  4. what beautiful photos! our kousas bloomed early last month. so funny that you and sophie made the news!

  5. Great shots, Jim! That image of your Kousa Dogwood is astounding.

  6. Gorgeous mindful photo of the dogwood.

  7. As usual, I must drop by to see the Saturday post. I seem to be on the computer so little this summer. I spend so much time outdoors. I love the outdoors in your part of the world, Jim. That hill of soft flowers with MacDonald house in the background is very nostalgic. The quilt wall looks nice. Did you say Ron got a massage? I could use one myself!

  8. I love that dogwood tree. You have a lot of pretty quilts in your shop and a delightful view of the Beach activity. Love the last shot.
