Fog to Sun to Sunset, What a Thankful Day
That condensed into little sparkling drops on the wings of our Brenda Wainman-Goulet sculpture of a red tail hawk, who soars across our lawn in memory of our Dad, Paul Tapley. His passion was flying.
The colours change by the minute as the sun tries to burn through the fog. Somewhere out there, beyond Anchor cottage, lies the Point we love to swim to in the summer. And beyond that... invisible, the island.
After the sun won out, the middle part of the day was spent bedding down the last of the gardens. This pansy was putting on a brave face going into winter. It was almost a t-shirt day today, just lovely weather to be out and about. There were several deer on the lawn enjoying the grass buffet and the mild weather. Days like this are a bonus to help us finish up the outside jobs that need to be crossed off the list before the snow comes in to stay.
Nobody does artwork like Mother Nature. Right where the water meets the land She has created an intricate collage.
And not content with that, She painted the sky into a lovely sunset. We are constantly left awestruck by the delicate shades and reflections that come with late autumn sunsets. Who could resist wandering down to the water's edge to soak up this scene?
This place is definitely well up there on the List.
