fall colors and edith piaf

hello peeps.
Sunday night already... 
where did the weekend go?

 a few pics from my morning walk at the beach
Sometimes i think i live in the most beautiful part of the world
and other times, i'd do anything to leave, just for a bit.
I suspect most everyone feels like this now & then,
when things just feel heavy.
Whenever i start to feel the weight of the world
on my shoulders, i come to the ocean.
This is Parlee Beach.
It's about a 10 minute drive from where i live
and at this time of the year,
there's hardly ever anybody there.
 the sand finds its way to the grass...
...a calm and cloudy morning

so nice & quiet here
the tide coming up 
 tiny waves... ;-)
 another tiny wave...

i love this one... 
it looked like it was gonna rain.
I was walking in the opposite direction
when i turned around to look at the view
and saw this blue piece of sky...
seaweed, sand, ocean, tire tracks...
(one of these things is not like the other) ;-)
This is a provincial park,
so they drive around the beach to keep it clean
and to keep the sand level
at the beginning and the end of the summer.

A little watercolor i did this morning,
as the rest of the house slept
and i enjoyed a good cup of coffee.
 this is the view i see from the window in my blue room.
i love these calm mornings
when the bay looks like a mirror
and each cottage/house is reflected in the water.
it was very windy this weekend,
so the fall colors are slowly disappearing.
still pretty though...
i love the fall.
Still my favorite season.
Something about the cool, crisp air
and changing colors
makes me feel more creative.
Wishing you all a good week ahead!

and for all Edith Piaf fans out there...
la vie en rose :-)

  2. So Very, very beautiful and meditative. Parlee Beach, I know the name well. although I never had the chance to go there I remember my grandmother and grandfather going there all the time. it was one of there most favourite places. and their last name was Parlee. Coincidence.
