Black Point Nova Scotia two days in the life of...

...three ladies living a cottage lifestyle!  The days are laid back! There is loads of conversation!  The hours are full of reminanicing that brings laughter, plus catching up on life's happenings.  The smiles are there and sometimes not.  Walks on the beach are not questioned on whether they will occur, they just happen.  When the scenery sinks in, and the ocean air fills the lungs, with sand between our toes, we know we have arrived....to where we need to be so we can just...be.  
    Many things make this way of life what it is.  Simple little things create the setting.
                  The beach is a place to sit awhile and while away the minutes. 
With so much that needed to be talked about, we strolled the furthest that I have been along the beach to make sure we had all the time we needed.  Wine compliments a lovely beach walk.
At days end, we admired the harvest moon.  Not quite full, it still seemed to fill the sky.  We shared more wine and stories, this time with neighbour friends.  We discovered what a small world this is.  It was like the years had not passed.
As another new morning dawns, I performed the ritual of seeing what might be out the front door.  If you don't bother him, he won't bother you. I just watched as he nibbled on an apple.
                                                    a mourning dove
                                   One section is a rough and rugged shore.  
                       With the tide heading out, we were afforded a view of tiny tide pools.
                                 on the mid morning-side, autumn like-attire was called for
                                                       just a pretty view
                                              beach combing 
Our location was not particularly far from seeing the ferry boat that sails between Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.  We could see Caribou Island as well as PEI.

With a full moon on the schedule for tonight, that means the tide will go extra low.  It's the perfect time for yet another stroll in the other direction. At these low tides, there is an opportunity to spot a variety of unique scenes...
                                                   ...like this...
 ...and like this.  We call this a tree of life.  I did not see it at first but those in the know of such trees pointed it out.  There is a story in this design which I will work on and share one day.
                                           
                                      you never know what you will discover during low tide
The signs shows another day of life at the beach is drawing to a close.  The winds calm down, the sky turns pink and a chill fills the air. What a wonderful two days of just being.
