By the time we reached the Eastern shore it was lunch time so we asked permission to use this area for a picnic ,what a perfect spot.
Here is Bill setting up our make shift table, there was actually a picnic table just outside of this shelter but we felt it would be more pleasant to sit here out of the suns rays . It was just beautiful , you could hear the water lapping under us and the smell of the salt water sure helps the appetite . I had made some salads and we had a sandwich and fresh fruit , a delightful lunch .
No you might find this rather wierd but I actually like visiting old graveyards with these incredible old stones.This one Nancy O' Leary came from Ireland and lived to be 81 . Then there was this one ...
It had several names the first was Jane Roach , do you not wonder what type of life she had and the hardships she had to endure in this rugged terrain on the Eastern Shore ? I tend to paint a picture in my mind of the person which again is probably strange .
This little church was next to the graveyard and the doors were wide open so I just had to peak inside , isn't it just beautiful , not one soul around so not sure why the doors were open . It was an Anglican church and I think it was inWilson's Cove but not sure .
The lupins have started to fade in this area but on this shore they are in full bloom , this field was especially pretty with a wide variety of color.
I thought this was a neat shot, can't take credit for it though, Bill took this picture of the old fishing boat next to the fragrant wild roses that were blooming everywhere in great abundance.
A close up of one of the roses , this one has several petals but I brought home a single petal rose and this is what I have done with it so far .
I took each petal off and laid it carefully onto my pretreated cloth and taped it down then stamped it , now it doesn't look much like a rose anymore does it, but wish me luck in bringing this back to life with a little stitching , probably not today as I have other sewing that must be done but soon :-)
This barn is closer to home but was in our weekend travels so I thought I would share it as well, Isn't it lovely , it is quite a way off the road so I had to zoom some ,Love it!!!
I hope your weekend was as much fun as mine , I love traveling to the ocean and breathing in that wonderful fresh sea air and admiring our lovely coast line. I will tell you that my weekend did not start out great , I wasn't going to post this but feel that my message may save someone else from the same incident . I was about to cook supper on the BQ on Friday evening , the tank had just been replaced , and when I went to turn on the burner it blew up in my face, yes my hair was burned and my face,neck and chest were scorched , I have no visual burns on my face but it feels like I had a very bad sunburn and my chest is really quite sore ,which is strange as I did have a tee shirt on which had a higher neckline . At any rate I am most fortunate, it could have been so much worse , it was very scary and I will be much more cautious using a BQ ,so please be careful , it happens so quickly and with so much force you really can't believe it .
Thanks for stoppong by today and have a great day.
