driftwood and firewood, beach gravel and stone walls
Save for the green, of course, in the photo below, the colours in these two shots are very similar. I love how the late-September noon sun illuminates the redness of that cut log. Juxtaposing the two photos makes me think of those old IQ tests we did in school: Driftwood is related to firewood as beach gravel is related to stone walls -- huh?
Pater's been working/playing with his new chainsaw getting us ready for winter. On this little island, when the power goes out in a fall storm, it sometimes stays out for a day or two and keeping the woodstove going is pretty important. Not as crucial as it will be to this young couple, but important nonetheless.
Have you started thinking about, or getting ready for, winter?
