Wow, it has been a few weeks since I blogged. Aside from dyeing about 100 meters of fabric and working on some new patterns, in the last month I've just enjoyed summer and some beautiful sights. In this blog post and the next I'll share some photos of some inspirational places I've been in the past month, most of them pretty local. Today's post, however, contains photos from last week's vacation at the northern tip of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.
I have to report that there was a lot of rain! These three photos, however, were taken on the one and only day that the sky was blue and almost cloudless. The first two show the beach at the cottage we stayed in Dingwall. Idyllic, no? Peaceful? Yes! Pristine and unspoiled, my favorite kind of place.
A little walk out to White Point.
Boats in the harbour on the way to Meat cove.
The beautiful and magnificent Cabot Trail! It might have been cloudy, but at least it didn't rain that day! These photos were taken on the west side, heading toward Cheticamp.
We experienced several storms involving wind and driving rain. A couple of days we stayed close to the cottage. On our last day I finally stopped and photographed Dingwall Harbour. This is where the lobster fishermen park their boats. Very peaceful and beautiful even on a grey and cloudy day.
This photo was cropped out out of the above photo, when I noticed a beautiful little spiral under the dock.
I hope your summer included some beautiful sights!
