A Watery Walk In The Park


This week when we were out and about,
we decided to take our lunch break in the park.

Cozy Canadian Cottage

Seaway Park in Sarnia, On.  

Cozy Canadian Cottage

A beautiful watery park along the St. Clair River.  
A stone throw from the Blue Water Bridge, the customs bridge connecting Canada and the US.

A unique work of art serving as a water fountain is the MacPherson Fountain.

Cozy Canadian Cottage

Metal and water - beautifully put together.

   A whisper of a mist coming off the structure - a wonderfully cool feeling on a hot day.

Walk the beautiful grounds.
I don't think I will ever want to see the summer end!

A Sweet Country House


Today, daughter and I were driving along the countryside.
I spotted this sweet country house.
With beautiful perennials gardens.

I can visualize this sweet home with a bunch of little children racing around, 
Grannie somewhere in there making Shepherds Pie,
a huge garden full of vegetables, 
dogs chasing cattle, 
horses grazing on the grass nearby.


 A sweet country family home!


What do you visualize?

Nautical Decor


As my brain starts to shift from summer living to fall,
I thought I would do a collection of some of my favorite pics and eye candy of wonderful beach decorating.
