…thanks to City Sonnets for hosting the August Photo a Day
The theme for August 10th was ‘visitor’. While at the beach up at the cottage we were graced with the presence of this gull. He actually came quite close to where we were lounging. They’re a pretty fearless bird. I’m sure he was hoping we had some food to share with him.

….you don’t have to look far to find things to put a smile on your face
Throughout the neighbourhood people are putting out painted stones with bright colours and special messages. Up the street the local yarn store has had customers knit or crochet flowers and has ‘planted’ them on the lamp post outside the store. On the rocky beach over at the park people are creating art with the bricks and stones from the beach.

Summer is different this year. So far I’ve spent all of it in the city. I miss the Island and hope to get up there soon.
…my Frances is getting old but she still enjoys a dip in the Lake
I love walking to the beaches over at Col. Sam Smith Park but Frances is finding the walk a little too long so I helped her into the car and we drove as close to the park entrance as possible. She must have sensed that we were going somewhere special because she walked quicker than she normally does.

Quiet moments are much easier to find these days but as things start to open up I’ve noticed that parts of the park are becoming hives of noisy activity with groups of families and friends who are gathering for the first time in months. That said there are still lots of quiet moments to share with you.
