Fan of…..#32 – Big Sand Bay

….thanks to Jez Braithwaite for hosting Fan of…..

I’m a big fan of the beach down from my cottage on Georgian Bay. Last weekend the beach was quiet. It was a beautiful weekend but most people stayed in the city. I’m not complaining because I loved the solitude and spending time with my dog, Frances.P1080194

August Photo a Day – Sandy Beach

…thanks to City Sonnet for hosting the August Photo a Day

Today’s prompt is sandy beach.

Our sandy beach on Big Sand Bay has receded considerably over the last 30 years. As water levels rise the beach on parts of the north shore have disappeared completely. In the middle of the beach and to the east we can still claim to have a sandy beach.IMG-2938

August Photo a Day Challenge – Aug. 25 – Lighthouse

…thanks to City Sonnet for hosting the August Photo a Day Challenge

Todays prompt is lighthouse. Christian Island, where my cottage resides has its own lighthouse on the southern tip of the island. It is still operational but now it no longer employs a lighthouse keeper.fullsizeoutput-70ea
