Square Skies from the Past

thanks to Becky B for hosting Past Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/10/30/past-squares-30/

On the eve of Hallowe’en and the second last day of the October Square Challenge I looked back to find some of my favourite sky photos. I’m not surprised that most of them are from the cottage and from the park at the bottom of our street. Enjoy!

Pull Up a Seat Photo Challenge – End of Summer

….thanks to Xingfu Mama for hosting Pull Up a Seat Photo Challenge https://xingfumama.blog/2021/09/24/pull-up-a-seat-photo-challenge-2021-week-39/

After the long weekend at the end of the summer season the beach chairs are folded and stacked but not yet put away. Many of us hope to get up to our cottages a couple more times before the Thanksgiving weekend when the season finally ends and the cottages are cleaned out, bedding is stored away, the water is drained from the pipes, BBQs are covered, canned goods are brought home so they don’t freeze over the winter and everything on the beach is returned to the cottage and put into storage.
