|Oh what fun it was today to see a blue, blue sky and the bright sun. With temperatures around 68F (20C) it was downright hot if we stayed in the sun. And everybody felt that we deserved that change in the weather. Since last Saturday it has been cold, very windy and interspersed with rain showers. |
After puttering around today with our trailer I felt so tired that I fell asleep in my chair on the porch. Well, I slept not very long, but yet I felt invigorated enough to suggest a walk along the Herring Cove beach. When we got down there, we were looking at a sea soooo calm, so calm. There was not a breeze over the entire area. Molly thought it was too hot and we know she is getting thirsty pretty fast. I would have liked to get my hands on a nice cold pop myself. We met only one other couple and they gave us a friendly wave when passing.
The storm winds of the last week sure have changed the shape of the beach again. Lots of sand has been washed away leaving a sharp edge about one third down from the grassy edge. Always amazing to see how mother nature works its ways.
A sharp edge marks where the recent high water took a lot of sand away.
To give Molly a chance for a drink we walked over to Lake Glensevern. We had to entice her a bit to walk into the water and she finally drank a little of the lake.

Bea made a nice supper with half a chicken and one her signature salads with bell peppers and home-grown tomatoes. We have actually enjoyed a lot of fresh lettuce over the summer and are now blessed with a huge tomato harvest. Gawd, how I relish these full-ripe tomatoes. What a great taste, especially if you compare with those store-bought tomatoes which mostly have no taste at all.
Yep, our garden has provided us with great food and an extension is already planned for next year.
Have a great weekend!
