it's all about summer, baby!

Hello everyone!

It's so good to be back from
more than a week away from blogging.

Both my brothers were here for a visit with their families
and we spent a few wonderful lazy, hazy, summer days.
The weather was beautiful
and it was so nice to see them all again.

The down time was great
and I always come out of vacation mode
feeling totally energized.

I also feel a deep sense of appreciation
and I am itching to pick up the paint brush again!
(hopefully later tonight)

i'll be posting some art soon, so hang tight, ok?

I also look forward to visiting some of your blogs as well...
I've missed you all. 

Here's a little glimpse of our week,
thanks to photos taken by my older brother, Paul.

I am so grateful to be surrounded by such beauty...

A beautiful beach called l'ABOITEAU a few miles from home.

Who doesn't love a blue sky?

teeny tiny waves... :-)

Mr. Crab...

soft sand...

Another beach called PARLEE BEACH near my home...

Mr. Big Lobster, in Shediac, NB

a beautiful quiet evening at the PAYS DE LA SAGOUINE,
in Bouctouche, NB

did someone say water slides?

wave pool at Magic Mountain...
just waiting for the bell and the waves to begin!

jumping off the wharf...

aaaaaah.... what a fantastic way to cool off.

the one with his face in the water is my son,
obviously enjoying himself...


  1. Now that looks like a wonderful week!!! ;)
    Looking forward to seeing your artwork.

  2. Pauline you couldn't have picked a better week for a holiday! hasn't it been glorious!

  3. Thanks for sharing your brother's pics. What wonderful summer memories. I'm looking forward to seeing what that rejuvenation triggers in your art :).
    Stay inspired!

  4. There she is! I was wondering what you were up to you yesterday ~ I wouldn't be blogging either if I lived somewhere that had those beaches AND sunshine! It's been raining here for about a hundred years although 'they' tell us it'll be sunny next week. So glad you've been having lovely family times. xx

  5. Wow, how stunning - I agree with Tara, I wouldnt be blogging either if I lived somewhere so divine.

    Looking forward to your new art, and nice to have you back.

  6. Looks like a super fantastic time! So nice to have you back though xx

  7. Looks like an awesome week, Pauline! Nothing like spending a fun week with family! :o)
