A Different View of the Lake – November 23, 2022

thanks to Becky B for hosting Walking Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/23/walking-squares-23/

In the summer this beach is busy with sunbathers, stone skippers and dog walkers. Yesterday most walkers stayed on the walkway.

I’m a Fan of…..Stones and Boulders

At both ends of our beach on Big Sand Bay there are wonderful stones and boulders that the water and waves flow and crash over all year round. As a result most of them are smooth and rounded. They come in many colours and have interesting veins and cracks. I love how the water gives them a glossy sheen when they are wet.

Water, Water Everywhere – Georgian Bay

….thanks to Jez for hosting Water, Water Everywhere https://jezbraithwaite.blog/2022/08/22/river-clyde-water-water-everywhere-140/

I’ve just returned from a five day stay at the cottage on Georgian Bay. As some of you may know my cottage is on an island and to get there you have to take a ferry. So I am literally surrounded by water when we go there. The cottage is on the north shore so it looks like we’re on the sea. This past week the lake was calm and great for swimming and paddle boarding.

Whatsoever Is Lovely Challenge – July 17, 2022

….thanks to Xingfu Mama for hosting the Whatsoever is Lovely Challenge https://xingfumama.blog/2022/07/17/whatsoever-is-lovely-challenge-2022-week-28/

This weekend I finally opened my cottage. It is truly my special place. I normally open sooner but I was so busy with my art show that this was the first opportunity I had to go up with my daughter. Opening up is always a big job and I knew that I couldn’t do it on my own so having Andrea with me made the whole process so much easier and more fun. Here are a few images from the north shore at Big Sand Bay and from the dock.

Walks in the park, along the beach and past the marina are all peaceful to me.

My Morning Tuesday Walk

…..a little windy and cooler today

Despite the chilly winds, especially when the clouds pass over the sun, it was a beautiful morning for a walk and taking photos. I love the colour of the sky on mornings like this and how it reflects onto the water. Let me take you on my walk through my photos.
