Wednesday Walk with Camera . . .

So many words, lately, both on this blog's latest instalment in my series on Travel and Independence and Getting On (where Wendy from York's comment made me snort tea out my nose!) and on my reading blog (posted there yesterday, a real mixed bag of book titles). I'm off on a mini road trip this morning to visit a grandbaby (okay, I'll say 'hi' to her parents as well, but she knows she's the main attraction!); first, I thought I'd post a few more pictures from last week's "Walk with Camera."

Alongside the road, neighbours often put out items they no longer need or want, free for the taking. Eventually, most items get recycled, but we also have a local entrepreneur who's made a business of helping us get rid of that which cannot find its way into a new home. . .


 And in case you want to stop and rest. . .
 Admire random beauty. . .
 Watch a boat sail happily through a sea of green. . .
 Wait, with a lonely golf cart, for its owner to get back from a day in town . . .
 Watch, she'll be coming up from the dock any moment now . . .

























And that's it for today's tour. I'm off now. . . as usual, I welcome your comments and I wish you a Happy Wednesday!

  2. The beautiful blues of the sky and water with the slightly autumnal light are so beautiful. Living on an island must present some challenges in recycling.

    1. It does that, Mme! And we all carry our own garbage to town where there are large dumpsters for us at the commercial boat basin. We either bring our own recycling to the stations in town or we pay $5 a large bag for a young entrepreneur to collect and take it there for us.

    1. Then that neighbour will have to arrange to take it to town to a recycling station -- either do it her/himself or pay the local service.

  5. If I had a nickel for every time I've muttered to myself, "Some day I'm taking her up on that invitation," well, I'd have a free plane ticket:). One day, friend of mine, one day.

  6. Oh, that blue boat amid the green! Your island home is lovely. Have you had any rain? Is the forecast hopeful?

    1. It's pouring this morning (Saturday) and we're all happy! It's scheduled to continue raining all week . . .

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
