….thanks to Marsha for hosting WQWWC https://alwayswrite.blog/2021/08/11/wqwwc-37-lakes-oceans-water/

This challenge requires that we find a quote to go along with the prompt. Here are my two favourite bodies of water in Ontario: Lake Ontario and Georgian Bay.

Thursday Trios – Pull Up a Seat

….this week I’m combining my Thursday Trios with XingFu Mama’s Pull Up a Seathttps://xingfumama.blog/2021/08/06/pull-up-a-seat-photo-challenge-2021-week-32/

Walking along the beach last week I came across a trio of trios. What luck.

If you photos of trios of people, animals or things why not join the fun. Copy my link and paste it into your post and I will get a ping back.

Hopeless

…..it’s not what you think

Up at the cottage when the residents say we’re ‘Hopeless’ they are not referring to the state of affairs in the world, their own state of mind or any situation for that matter. Hopeless at Big Sand Bay means that we are fogged in and can’t see Hope Island which sits just north of us.

When the fog breaks up and the sun reappears Hope Island returns to us. In life hope is always there. Sometimes hope is all we have and even in our darkest days we sometimes have to push through the darkness to find it but when we do we can begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
