Life is a Beach

One last trip to the beach before the cold winds blow. We have to endure a long, frost-bitten winter here in southern Ontario. So I take every chance I get to relax and enjoy warm weather. I was made for sunny days!


Hard to imagine this warm tropical scene with real palm trees will soon be covered in ice and snow.


It was a lovely day on Monday this week, not quite warm enough to go swimming (besides, I don’t swim) but perfect for a stroll along the shore, walking in the sand and looking out at the big, blue sea, that looks more like an ocean.


This is Lake Erie–a beach that is usually packed with people, now almost bare, even the seagulls have left–just miles of sand, big blue sky and diamonds dancing on the water.


The charming beach town of Port Dover is the place to relax.


My pink cotton top with laces was perfect for the day.

A sign to watch out for wild life, sometimes we need to slow down.

    I guess it was a wonderful day at the beach. Your grandson is very old and seems very happy with you. The scenery in this beach Toronto is very special, I like the view of the small lighthouse. A nice look, rose camisetar is cute, and you and capri always have a beautiful romance! As always … lovely!

      Thanks so much! This is a little town called Port Dover on Lake Erie. Toronto is by Lake Ontario. If you Google it, you will see the location.

      Happy weekend!

      Thank you Margot, the sea is my favourite view, water refreshes my soul and calms my heart, I feel relaxed (unless of course, there’s a storm). I prefer to watch this beautiful sight from the shore where I feel safe. Ha ha!

      Happy Friday!

      ❤ carmen
