I'll have Mine on the Rocks, please!


In this case, these humongous boulder/rocks are along the South Shore near Peggy's Cove.


Soft, serene tide pools are captured by these boulders sometimes


and of course, I just need encouragement and a lure ~~~


take a minute or so
 to see me slice this pool like a knife


What did you think of that, friends?


Mr. Orangie is a rolly kinda guy.
May I say, don't leave your Mr. Orangie on a boulder
expecting it to stay still.


That was a close one (pun intended)!


Look another wading pool with a lighthouse view
of Peggy's Cove in the distance.


I'm super busy trying to find Mr. O
thrown by smartie-pants Ron
into this grass.
He said I'd stand out nicely
in this beige colour.
What do you think!?


As we amble on across the rocks and barrens
we noticed that the ocean was very peaceful,
quiet and relaxed this time.


So much so that we could venture near the edge
without fear of being swept off the rocks.

We spent a couple hours here this morning
and have plenty more pictures 
of rock climbing
discovery of a small beach
myself swimming ~~~ naturally!

So come back for more!

    1. Yes, you are so right, Sage!

      Mr. Orangie was too bouncy on the rocks and we were afraid he might end up in the crevasses.

      Bye Bye Mr. Orangie then!!

      Sophie here and tired out!

    1. I hope this helps is some small way ~ some peace and serenity into your life at this time Jean. This area of our province is well-known for it`s tourist destinations because of the lighthouse and the rocks. Just imagine a storm, then you`ll understand the Majesty of the sea smashing the waves against the rocks. Where we are standing can be covered in water at times, so we all have to be careful. The North Atlantic can be fierce and sometimes carefree like it was today!

      Take care!
      Ron and Sophie

  8. Sophie, you're a slave to Mr. Orangie!

  9. Looks like a dangerous place for Mr. O. couldn't he fall down a crevice? Never to be found again? Sorry, I am such a worry wart. The rocks remind me of my rocky old Sweden, in the archipelago there are many rocky places like this. The further out into the Baltic Sea you get, the rockier the islands.

    Ron, if you have a minute, could you check out what I just posted. You may not be able to help, but I thought I would ask. I will ask TexWis too. You two seem to be the most familiar with Google+. Thank you.

    1. Our world and your Sweden definitely are similar with the birches, the shorelines and weather. It must be a treat to see them again!

      I`ll check your G+ info now!!

      PS ~~~~ yes Sophie does drop Mr. O on the rocks and has lost other Mr. O's ~~~ she was very careful this time. You'll notice the one picture above of her with mouth wide open ~~~ this is her grabbing for Mr. O because he was heading for a hole ~~~ OH NOOOOOO!!!

  10. I was going to comment that Sophie's tail was like a rudder,
    then you said it in your commentary :-)
    I love to see all the different places you take Sophie and Mr.O.
    What a fabulous way to spend a Sunday morning!

    1. This pond water is very calm thus the rudder isn't so excited. Butt, if the waves are super active then so is her rudder!

    Out under the sun
    A ball can roll

  17. Wow, how beautiful was that? Don't ever lose Mr. Orangie!! Riley rarely lets hers out of her sight. Those little tide pools looked perfect for splashing!

    Have a great day!

    1. I love all tide pools whether they are snuggled in the rocks at Peggy's Cove or on my beach at home ~~~ sandy tide pools are a load of wading fun too.

  18. It's very serene... perhaps it's the cool grey of the boulders against the vivid blue ocean. Good to see the mermaid doing her stuff!

      Our visit today was so quiet, usually it's super active with giant waves crashing on the rocks!

  20. Hi Sophie!
    What a lovely Sunday morning walk you had in beautiful Peggy's Cove. I haven't been there in forever! It's such an incredible place to walk on gorgeous granite! I saw you hesitate, girl, before you jumped after Mr. O. the second time in your video. That's rare! Thanks for sharing this wonderful spot and for bringing up lots of memories of Peggy's Cove!

    Our weekend didn't go according to plans. Terry came down with a bug and spent lots of time in bed at Black Hawk. And the Bonanza had just changed its black jack rules to make them less favorable for the players ~ so Terry and I left without playing. We, and the regulars, were voting with our feet. We still managed to have fun though ~ we usually do.

    And I've got another lead on the courthouse burro Jack. I'm going to call the president of the Gilpin Historical Society when he's in the office tomorrow. And I've located the home of the first sheriff of Central City ~ it's not listed on any map. It's old and boarded up, but still very cool. There is a story behind every building in CC, and it's so much fun learning about it all.

    I hope your week has gotten off to a good start. Terry stayed home from work today, and he isn't going in tomorrow either. This is extremely rare for Terry, he can go years without taking a sick day.
    I'm glad that he has the bug now, because two weeks from today, I'll be waking up beside my favorite beach on the North Shore of Oahu. I'll send you pictures of me slicing through the water, Sophie! I won't be chasing any balls though, but I may be looking for cute Hawaiian beach boys with my camera! Take care!

    1. I think we can all look forward to your beach pictures on Oahu!! If you know what I mean! wink wink

      So sorry to hear about Terry. There has been a bugger of a bug going around all winter. If he's going to get it, well he picked the right time. Sure hope you don't succumb. Actually maybe you should ~~ wouldn't want you sick in paradise!

      Sophie has been tentative when jumping from rock to rock because she isn't used to it. We don't go to Peggy's enough for her to become accustomed to the distances and heights of rocks. I noticed her being so careful with some jumps. Sometimes she would actually not go the way we would climb and slip around on other ledges. She's probably the smart one.

      Loved your Trifecta post ~~~ we love the mountains ~~~ camped at Banff and along the route to Jasper, biking all the way.

  22. Please don't worry about the google+ if it's complicated. Annette just wrote on her post that it looks like she can't have it both ways and if she gets out of Google+ she loses those followers and if she stays she loses the regular blogger/google followers. It sounds like she will be getting more followers using google+. Anyway, she wants to leave me her email so I can comment every now and then. Thank you so much though. I tend to get involved where perhaps I shouldn't. But she sounded so disappointed at first that I just wanted to help.
