Back to the Bergs

April 11, 2019

I thought I missed them – my winter icebergs that I love. You can see them in full size on my post from a couple of years ago. And I was really sad. Then realized I had no right to feel sad. My reason for not getting to the beach to see the icebergs was because I was too busy playing on the slopes in the east. But nature had a gift for me. The last day on the slopes was April 7, and on the 11th I headed to the beach and got this visual treat:

And it wasn’t a moment too soon — the party was breaking up.

And then they were gone.

Finale

I had two super treats to wrap the day on the trip where we encountered the end of the bergs for the year.

  1. Look how nature took the love I feel for my man and celebrated it with a heart over his head at one of my favorite spots:
Heart over Chris' head
Heart in the sky

You can see it a bit better in this pic, but Chris looks a bit goofy. Can’t have it all, I guess 😉

and my other treat –

2. One of my favorite things in life is taking a walk when the birds are tucking in for the night. I love the sounds of nature at dusk. Just take a listen and relax with me.

Highlighted Blog #30 – Art and Soul Space

As I wrap up November’s highlighted blogs, it’s been interesting to see what holds appeal for me. I learned a bit about myself and encourage you to read over of lists of sites you follow. It was a treat reading the list, seeing how many people I connect with. People who take the time to write and share and make life a better place for others.

It seems like Art and Soul Space – connecting with the heart of creativity is a great closure for the month. The blog is a nice balance of great imagery, poetry, art and introspect. Hope you like it as much as I do.



The Opposite of Anxiety I’m breaking my own rules. Best kind to break. Instead of waiting an entire whole year to share another ‘Late Middle-Aged to Early-Old Crazy Art Lady’ adventure, here’s a tale for you a mere two weeks since the last episode. It’s because I can’t resist shouting from the rooftops about Uluru and […]

Highlighted Blog #29 – Mr. Adam's Travels

When I can’t hit the road in real life, you’ll always find me arm-chair traveling, and Mr. Adam’s Travels is one of my favorite sites to follow. I think this is because he highlights interesting places, has great images, but also provides practical tips and thought-provoking insights such as in his travel summary post in which he states:

We’re here, worrying about our internet speeds… What colour to paint the house… Whether our online shopping will be delivered on time.
Who really cares?
There is a whole world out there of people struggling to survive.

Highlighted Blog #24 – Kat's Thoughts

Often I will curl up on a day off and read through blogs. I particularly love reading a nice long blog post that broadens my world. Kat’s blog is one of my favorites for this. Through her writing, I gain insight into novels and get to armchair travel and learn about the world.

Trois-Pistole is a small town a few hours away north from Montreal. It is located on the shore of the Saint-Laurence river close where it falls into the ocean. Almost everything about the area makes you feel like you are at the seaside – the fresh salty air, the water full of seaweed, the seals […]
