LAND OF 40 WINKS !!


Today I was hearing from the guys 
about this big rain and wind storm
called a nor'easter in these parts
traveling up the eastern seaboard of the U.S.A.
I got my walk in at MacDonald Hill,
visited Pops at the hospital,
had my breakfast and supper,
drove around in the backseat of my car surveying pretty much everything,
and 
claimed my spot on my sofa
while the lights flickered
and the rains came pouring down.


When I wake up in the morning
(with paws crossed)
everything will be backed normal.

ZZZzzzzz ~~ later gators!!

NEW DISCOVERY PT.3


Well folks, you finally made it to the end of the boardwalk.
Trying a DOODLE'S PATIENCE
as all DOODLE OWNERS know
can be mighty difficult
to say the last.


OK then it looks like Jim knows what I want everyone to do,
so let's follow him.


I'm down here now!
It's only a few cobbles
Really!
Not that difficult to maneuver.


Gingerly!
Yup, that's my EVER-PATIENT DADDY JIM!
(pleading guilty Louise for borrowing your descriptive words)
The cobbles are numerous, on a major decline and slippery
but hey if I can manage them well ~~


even you could.
SMILE!
Someone has his camera on you!


This is the Cobble Beach that we found
in this ecosystem along our shoreline the other day.
We plan on returning when the waves are more conducive to surfing
because I just know it will be eye-popping.


Alas there's a surfer who passed us on our return to the car.
Late January in Nova Scotia 
there are rugged people out there folks
who challenge themselves.
Maybe there's something you need to challenge.

NEW DISCOVERY PT. 2


 OK then, back to my new discovery surprise.
Are you still with me?
I see that you are.


This is a very up close long range view 
in front of me as I meander
out the boardwalk
at the first left-hand turn 
that we meet.
The distant view is of MacDonald House
where my Daddy Jim
has his vintage Mid-Century Maniac Shop.
The white building on the left perched on that hill.


This is the first left-hand turn on the boardwalk
slightly topsy turvy just for fun.


The bog pond is frozen solid
perched above the Atlantic Ocean.


I thought about going on the ice
but the guys nixed that mighty quickly.
What's with them anyway?


 On the return along this section I saw this dead tree trunk
which for all intents and purposes looks very much like a heron to me.
What do you think?


Jim is keeping an eye on me 
because I am speedy as in DOODLE FAST.
(I am out of sight at this point which for some reason always bothers the guys).
~~
I smell a beach
well at least that is what it smells like to me.

More to come!

NEW DISCOVERY PT. 1


Hi Ho!
We have discovered a new "to us" boardwalk, trail
along an area where plenty of surfers surf.
This is the sign to the entrance
with plenty of information for all types of surfers.


Follow me and uhm,
H-U-R-R-YYYYYY!


There's always one straggler!
Always!


Jimbo, haven't you taken enough photos?
I know this one behind me (as in Daddy Ron)
is totally OCD about his photo-taking.
~~
Come on now 
I have to show everyone this place!

Next time!

A QUICK DASH TO BOARDWALK


This past weekend let's you know what winter truly is like
in my neighbourhood. Getting ready takes a little longer
having to don my new coat which by the way
is the easiest jacket to put on. 
VELCRO is the new ZIPPER of yesteryear.


I espied this YELLOW kayak
from the boardwalk and sniffed out
pretty much everything around this area.
Why would people tempt fate
when the temps are minus 18 Celsius?

  
Oh I do learn so much on my sojourns.
One thing that I have learned is that it takes
many to make our world go round.
Pretty boring if everything was the exact same.
Right !?! RIGHT!


Good evening everyone!
Stay safe and warm in your world.

WINTER'S GARDEN STROLL


Today being SUPER DOUPER DOODLE COLD 
like minus 18 degrees celsius,
I only managed to see the garden
MY WINTER GARDEN.


So without further ado ~~


ENJOY !!


I'm off to another corner
because I know
MR. PHEASANT
is over here somewhere.

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT, SORT OF


You would be surprised at the little things that amuse one,
like learning to spell using the lights 
of  a building at dusk.


Yep, that's my name written in the skies ~


using these lights one evening last September.


The other day when the sun was setting again ~


while sitting patiently in the car
I practiced my spelling again ~


with much more vigour.
I think I'm getting the hang of it.
Don't you?!
