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.

  1. Sophie, I think I'll just enjoy Ron and Jim's photos of the surf. I don't think a wetsuit is in my future.

  2. Maybe a wetsuit and under the sprinkler down here. 30.6C, way too hot for much at all. Those beach and ocean scenes are super-duper, lovely grey stones, blue water, and some guy huddled up in gloves, hoodie and stout shoes, Hope you kept an eye on him Sophie!!!

    1. Oh your weather sounds delightful Jean ~~ warm as long as you can hit the beach or jump under the sprinkler.

      I'm trying to understand this concept as a nor'easter ~ rain and wind event ~ is bearing down on us as I type.

      Now for Jim showing everyone what one needs to wear if you aren't going in the water ~~ well ~~ "what you sees is what you gets" as they say around here.

      Be aware and alert and wear layers of clothing because the weather could change on a dime!!

    1. I have really wondered about this surfing thing myself ~~ but they all smile as we pass them on their trek to the beach and waves.

  5. I have a shot of a friend and I at this beach in early June and we were pretty much bundled up just like Jim. Nova Scotia ... brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

    1. Oh joy, so we can expect a beautiful warm day in August then I guess.

      In other words keep your layers handy!!

  6. I'm laughing out loud as I read all the comments, Ron! The water is cold in the summer ~ I can't imagine it in the winter, wetsuit or not! Nova Scotia ... brrrrr! Next time may I suggest Newfoundland in mid-July at St. Anthony or L'anse aux Meadows. LOL I danced with delight when I saw the first cobble in your text, Ron! Please use any of my words, anytime. You know we retired teachers just love to see something like that! You know that beach gets pounded with all those cobbles piled up high, and look how nicely those cobbles have been sorted by wave action. SD, you and the guys have found a wonderful new place to roam and play! Happy weekend to you!

    1. The cobbles are quite remarkable I have noticed ~~ a lot of similarity, colour, tone and size ~~ gives me an idea but Pet Rocks have already been thought of ~~ maybe there's something else like curtain holder-downers or I've drawn a blank.

      Words are your forte so I will be scanning your posts for more.

      A nor'easter is raining down on us as I type, with fingers crossed that the power stays on. This winter has been a strange one, no complaints thus far from me.

      Hope all's cool in Colorado-Ville!!

    1. It's time to make a trek to the seashore, Jo-Anne, me thinks!!

      Dabble your toes in the surf and squeeze the sand between your toes!
