Saturday Morning Post


I never realized before I started blogging 
just how much the ocean is part of our lives.
It's in our veins.


Taken from the shop window on Wednesday....
ships waiting for entry into Halifax Harbour.


Speaking of entries......upper entrance to the park.
Dogs must be on leads here until a little further along.


The 'fall' colours are beginning make an appearance.


Coastal dune grass and Sophie......


Last evening on MacDonald Hill.....


October is a good surfing month here in Nova Scotia.


Looking towards Conrad's Beach and beyond to Cole Harbour.


These tiny Sea Gooseberries were everywhere at the beach this week.
What is a Sea Gooseberry?

I always find these Sand Pipers very amusing in the way they scoot around
where the surf meets the sand.


The beach at dusk.....

    1. Well, RDT, it is our walks and daily sojourns that give me the calmness and vision to pass this along. Thanks.

    1. Well, Martha, as you know water makes all the difference. And we take full advantage of it as much as we can.
      thanks.

  5. Great as always, Jim! Isn't it fascinating how much light interacts with water to create the endlessly changing colors, lines, textures, and shapes in the ocean! I never tire of observing it. And it is literally in our veins! Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. It is fascinating, Louise, and is constantly changing. You must have had a wonderful experience in Victoria with all that water and light!
      Hope your weekend is the best!

  6. You and Ron (and Sophie) are lucky to live by the sea. Your photos of water, sky, and light always make me smile. Looks like the dune grass and trees are changing colors.

    1. I am happy my photos make you smile, Barb. We are very lucky to be so close to this positive life force.
      Yes, our colours are putting on quite the performance around here.
      Before we know it, we will be all white....like you are.

    1. You know something, Cynthia, the whole act of photography is very zen-like for me.
      It is like meditating and brings one in touch with the present moment.
      Hope your Thanksgiving was a peaceful one for you.

  8. Nothing is more stress-reducing for me than a walk on the beach or just the sound of the surf. Except for winter (which is nice to look at from a distance) I LOVE where you live.

    1. We LOVE where we live, Mitch!!
      And I couldn't agree more....walking near or on the beach can reduce stress like nothing else.....well, a walk in the forest can also give a similar feeling.
