Through the Magic Woods



This is the continuation of my walk from
 the other day < click if you missed it
~~~ 
Slipping through the woods at the treed point on MacDonald Hill,


will find you walking through a spring runoff just about here ~~~ 


on the edge of a cliff 


high above the crashing waves below


This is my kind of place ~~~ waves to body surf and water to dunk myself~~~enjoy!


 My video today will allow you to understand why I love visiting this area.


 Here are some stills of my view ~~~ I'll let you scroll through and find the one that you like the most!













Sure hoped you found something that triggered
a good feeling inside.


I know that if I stick my tongue out
it really makes me feel good.

Just teasing!

Sophie 'quite exhausted from taking in the waves' here!

    1. Really! Does that mean I'm on vacation all the time?

      Now that's a cool possibility!

  2. I couldn't pick a favorite wave photo, but guess which one is my favorite: YOU! Even a gorgeous wave can't beat the look on your face in those last two pictures.

    1. Can you see my tongue sticking out in the last picture? I so had to include it.

      The waves were relentless in a good way, today!!

  3. Just beautiful :) I can almost smell and taste the salt in the air from all that spray on the waves without my tongue out lol.

    Great walk and I appreciate you taking me along Sophie, Ron and Jim..

    1. Yes, the taste of the ocean is every where and there's nothing like inhaling!

      I'm sure you are aware of this when you are on your beaches in your beautiful world!

  6. Right Sophie, give me the impossible task of choosing the best still!

    I was having a tough enough time trying to decide which was more fetching in the video: the beautiful spindrift trailing the waves or you with your windblown ears and Mr. Orangie in your mouth! Just kiddin'! You, of course!

    I could actually hear Mr. Orangie squelching when you clamped down on him with your teeth! I'm sure that's better for Mr. Orangie than falling off the cliff! You give me fits over concern for Mr. Orangie: dropping him in a canal, loosing him under a boulder, floating him on the waves, plopping him by the edge of a big cliff! Geeze Sophie! But your forgiven ~ you're just too darn cute, and I figure Mr. Orangie must have a 1,000 lives!
    Hope you two are having hair-raising adventures today!

    1. Mr. Orangie brings me PEACE and CONTENTMENT like you have never seen! Oh, you probably figured that out "centons" ago, right!!!

      I'll be careful ~~~ now that you mention all these scenarios I've put myself and guys into ~~~ I do love my world though!

      Glad you like the video. Ron and I were on this trek because Jim was super busy. He knows he missed something good. Next time I guess.

      We were at the park again today just Ron and I because Jim went to see his papa. It was 'doggy point out your poop day' ~~~ meaning don't pick up after yourself and you'll find an orange flag beside your 'stuff'. Ron is pretty good and bagging my poopers. I leave good ones for him!!!

  12. That video was wonderful! There's no happier place for me than near the water. The sounds, the smells, the view...I love it all. And the images are gorgeous. I'm not sure which one I liked best, but I did stop a little longer at the second photo after the video. I like the way the wave is curling; just lovely.

    1. That wave does draw you in ~~~ I think that's why I used it. I kept turning around seeing so many crashing waves in various stages. Poor Sophie must have thought I was nuts ~~~ she already knows that! LOL

      Have a great day!

  14. Oh, Sophie. I didn't realize you are a Labradoodle. My daughter, The Hurricane, adopted a rescued Labradoodle when she was in high school. Her name was Emma. I miss The Hurricane, and I miss Emma. I'm so happy to see your photos.

    Love,

  15. Hello Sophie and Ron ;-)
    First, I am new here .. found your sweet face over at Martha's blog (we, Martha and I, both live in Kingston and try ? to garden here) .. second, I have 2 gorgeous kitties and one is sharing your name with you Sophie, wink wink .. Emma is Emma.
    Third .. I miss the ocean terribly .. my husband, son (soon to be living in South Carolina) son that is .. and I are all "Blue Nose" people .. husband and I are birth right to Cape Breton Island. Sea salt is in our veins. Yet here we are near a "Great Lake Ontario" no salt added ?
    I love your pictures of Sophie and of the ocean .. beautiful ! Thank you !
    Spring is a long way off some where else .. we are having a winter storm warning .. ergo no gardening ... BIG sigh !
    Just wanted to drop by and say hi .. my poor blog is dead boring with no gardening going on !LOL

  25. Hi Y'all!

    Oh that was so beautiful and relaxing...we all love the ocean...you are so lucky to live on the ocean...

    Oh, and Sophie...people mistake me for a Doodle...and I've been an honorary Golden too. Seems like a lot of people just can't figure us out. Up in the mountains people don't get to see us Chessies much...so it is rare that anyone knows what we are.

    Y'all come by now,

    1. You know what happened to us today at the park? Well, this black male doggy came trotting up to me and my Dads just stared it ~~~ thinking ~~~ is that a Doodle? Well, it was a Black Lab/Poodle Doodle but it was so different from my chocolate look. Very handsome with tons of character and apparently the hair doesn't grow super long like mine. I took a shining to him, his name was Wilson. So, even my Dads haven't seen all the Doodle mixes that are TAKING OVER THE WORLD HERE!

      Cheers Hawk!
