A Sigh Of Relief?

"Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go." - Unknown

Even with the pandemic, the days have melded and swiftly flown. With the re-election of a Liberal minority government I can somewhat relax believing this was the better outcome, particularly for child-care and climate change issues. The alarming heat of summer is a haunting memory. Rain is back along with my favourite season. Autumn leaves have not yet fallen to any degree; blooms still cling to their stems. It is a time when we perhaps foolishly take for granted that everything old will be new again. Here are random scenes I captured on recent walks. I gave some a painterly look. I am surmising that the house (several pictures below) is being lifted due to potential future flooding. The slightest rise of the sea makes a world of difference to our coastlines.

  6. Dear Maria - The quote is so true. Let me add “Autumn makes up for the heat of summer.” Lovely series of the photos of various different things. When I saw photos before reading your narratives, I thought the highly raised wooden structure was to avoid moisture from the ground. According to your guess, the owner of the house looks proactive. We need to learn such attitude. Walking with a camera must have been more enjoyable with somewhat of peace of mind.


  7. That dragon kite is fabulous and I like what you've down with the pirate ship kite. Looks like a painitng. #OurWorldTuesday

  10. Beautiful photos, that beach umbrella reminds me it will be Summer here soon.

  11. A wonderful collection of photos for us this week. I used to dream of having a house by a river or the sea but now that prospect just conjures up images of flooding.

  12. Great photo's. Those kites are excellent and yes rising water will become a problem and no sewer in sight.

  13. Autumn is my favorite season as well. The photos bring memories of wonderful walks along Crescent Beach.

  14. Your photos have such charm. A lovely series and those with the painterly look are a delight.

  15. wow, that is some nice shots from your walks. Love that beach with open water. And people in kajaks. Now I miss the one I used to have :)

  16. This was the second election I was eligible to vote in. The first went fine with a mail-in ballot. This time I made a mistake on my address and it took lots of calls and in-person visits to get a replacement ballot just in the nick of time. - Margy

  17. I enjoyed the fabulous scenes from your walk.

    Love the photos especially the kites.

    Happy Tuesday!

  18. I love your photos and you made some great edits.

  19. Your photos are so relaxing and refreshing. They made me take and let out a deep breath.

  20. Fabulous photos - it is reassuring to see that everyday life goes on. I enjoyed the painterly aspect of some of the pictures!
