Down the shore

A trip down the shore always means a walk around the property inhaling the fresh salt sea air and a walk along the road to the best beachcombing spots around. Flowers are all a bit later coming up here than in the city.

 

 

The beaches have incredible driftwood just calling out for gathering or at the very least capturing their images.

 

Rugged coastline with hundreds of islands and points like this one…

 

 

Beachcombing find:

A very old brass pipe fitting? I love how worn and discoloured it has become over the years tossing around in the ocean.

An old road sign that became part of the landscaping:

 Driftwood sculptures:

 

More of the garden plants. Rock gardens seem to be doing fine, even after a little neglect. 🙂

 

Can anyone name this bird? There is a pair nesting in this lovely birdhouse made by a friend of mom & dad’s:

 

Photowalks are a great way to notice new details about your surroundings. They also help me focus my mind on beautiful happy, interesting things. 🙂

Hi Trish! Just found your blog this morning! Can I ask where along the (I assume Eastern?) shore these pictures were taken?
