A photogenic morning

The beach was quite lovely this morning. 🙂

Someone’s sand castle looks like part of its wall has already been claimed by the waves.

I played around with the settings on my phone’s camera and was happy to get more true-to-life photos.

The closer to the marina, the rockier the beach.  I find the beach much more interesting, the rockier it gets.

These boulders are right at the wharf.  It’s not unusual to see someone sitting on them, reading a book or something, and just enjoying this quiet little spot.

There is a little cove on the other side of the marina.  The lake shore here is lined with boulders to protect from erosion.  The entry/exit through the breakwater into the marina is near here, and the yacht club is nearby as well.

A beautiful day for a sail.

Near the frog fountain are a couple of mountain-ash trees, aka rowan.  They are gorgeous trees.  We had a couple, around where our plum trees are, when I was a kid, but I have no idea what happened to them.  These trees are of similar size.  When we first moved to the city we were in for the past 14 years, one of the things that amazed me was how many mountain-ash trees there were, and how HUGE they were, compared to here.  When we first moved into the housing co-op, we were in a townhouse on the second and third floors at the end of the row, and there was a mountain-ash right outside the third floor bedroom windows.  Every spring, it would fill with waxwings, eating the remaining berries.  Gorgeous birds, though it didn’t take long for their incessant fee-fee-fee! noise, that would start at about 3 a.m. and continue for hours, to get very annoying. 😀

While in the area, I saw some gazebo tents set up and remembered that it was Saturday – Farmer’s Market day.  This was the first time I was able to take it in, since our move.  It was still early, to I walked for a while before coming back to the market and seeing what was there.  I even had a bit of cash on hand, for a change.  I normally never have cash and use my debit card for everything, but I had decided to take some money out this morning, just in case.

Then I found my cousin’s honey booth.

I no longer have any cash on hand, but I now have a big bucket of creamed honey!

That should last us through the winter. 😀
