whether on the beach at low tide
or strolling along a new section of the Atlantic View Trail
or gathering debris from the beaches
or bundling up to capture nature's roar
at Martinique Beach
or sifting through the heathers at Point Pleasant Park
or slipping across the parking lot
to capture the egret that
took up residence in our area this spring
to checking out the garden before the greenery
multiplies like mad
(as it it did this year)
to an end of the evening stroll in the mist
to assisting Jim with some photos
as the sun was setting on the hill
I wish Daddy Jim the
Happiest of Birthdays.
He has been so kind to me
may I add to anyone who crosses his path.
You are the best Doggy Daddy around
I couldn't imagine anything better

The city and country
our 150th birthday today.
The red flag is everywhere
even arm and arm
with a city flag.
Double Reflections captured the flags
in these nearby windows
also sharing a moment
with bouquets of flowers
and sitting high
on the mast of this ship in foreground
as a myriad of vessels
ply the waters or are docked in the harbour.

Seriously getting out on the road
really opens your eyes
to new and fresh
so put on your caps
allow me ~~
in the middle of the province
on roads just off the main drag of everyday life
I found these homes, abodes and four legged creatures
old weathered barn wood
in many forms
from actual buildings to farm carts
to seeing the age and weather worn stories behind these beauties
sensing the speed of the moment
in this moment of calm
wondering who built this building
fitting perfectly into the setting
remembering the adage
that when cows lay down
that the weather will become rainy or at least cloudy
half way there to either rain or sun
horses many of them feeding in delight
transfixed on this moment
a quick dash across the road in front of us
'going down the road'
as literal as
can be expected
I include this 2011 trailer of a sequel to the original 1970 movie
called "Going Down The Road"
thanks for indulging my trip today
Cheers as always.

My "1/2 cup full" philos'
has been on full speed ahead
over the passed couple of weeks.
With a smile and Mr. Orangie
in tow ~
allow me to introduce Harley
my very young companion
Mr. Orangie filcher
(that is a word right ~
click the yellow word!?!)
Nothing but good energy here 😍!!!
The sand is returning to my favourite beach again.
It is always so soul-refreshing to inhale the salty
chase for Mr. Orangie
feel so Doodle~complete.
On an entirely different note:
This is a Baltimore Oriole
frolicking and rollicking
in our azalea and cherry trees.
1st time seeing this beauty.
Happy Camper, indeed.
The Merry Month of May brings rain
and in this case
gazillions of droplets
covering everything insight.
This is a very very close up view of the beauty of an azalea blossom.
Back to the beach again!
Fetching and swimming
helps me lose the 10 pounds
that my vet decided was necessary.
So, drum roll
I lost 7 pounds
I am overjoyed
continuing with my new diet.
This raindrop sparkle
truly helps me see life easier.
Even the wild strawberries appear joyful.
What is it about all this anyway?
Cedar waxwing Joy!
Six lovelies landed on my cherry tree
proceeded to eat the cherry blossoms.
They visited for a few minutes
they were gone
but not before my Daddy Ron captured this beauty.
Re-acquainting our lives with a salt marsh pond along the trail
has been upper most on my walks with Daddy Ron.
When one has the trail and a backyard
full of nature
the light and shadow
just stops one in their tracks ~
just like me below!
So are you coming or not ?
