Some photos I took on our beach cottage walk
while on vacation last week.
Striking, that pumpkin in the basket of the rusty blue bike
At the cottage with the bright green window trim
These cottage dwellers are most likely glad that most tourists
stay on the main road in town,
perusing the shops, bakeries, galleries and cafes
but oh what we would have missed
had we not taken to the alley-ways and back roads
not striving toward a destination
but just enjoying the adventure of the journey
I take photos of the same cottages every time we visit,
but, each time the light is a bit different,
the flowers always beautiful
In our home town I often overlook the beauty
of a window box or porch decor
as I breeze by in my car heading to my destination
but in leisurely walking the same route
often there are treasures of beauty to observe
There is an old garage in an alley,
once painted blue but now completely weathered.
Everytime I pass it I enjoy its texture and peeling paint,
the grey wood exposed
~ back to the beach cottages ~
Gorgeous weathered wood
A favorite color
The purple trim on this cottage
always creates a smile in my heart and on my face
The hounds enjoy the cottage walk
but prefer the sand and ocean view
Yes, our beach has AQUA sand dollars !!!
(with chocolate inside, the best!)
I just know Anita is smiling at this.
