First trip to Mad Rock!!

Yesterday, we met up with a group of our friends in Spaniard's Bay, and drove over to an area known as Mad Rock.  I had actually only just learned of the area, so we planned a day trip, to check it out.

The whole area is breath-taking, but when we got right out to the coast and could see the rugged shoreline, it was obvious why it is called Mad Rock----Just Beautiful!!!!

The large birds are cormorants.
They are a coastal bird and nest in colonies along the rugged shoreline.

Batter late than Never!

Every morning, I get up a little earlier than required, so I can enjoy a big mug of coffee while checking the forecast, local news, and check in on my favorite Blogs.  This morning, I noticed that John at The AC is On, had mentioned that Thursday was Good Fences Day,on Blogger.

So I scrambled to pull up a few of my many fence photos.  Anyone who has been following my blog will know that I love fences, so here's just a few.........



Have a great weekend!!

Night at Gambo Pond

We took a little road trip this past weekend and had Saturday night at 
Gambo Pond with our dear friends.

We did a little boating, a little fishing, lots of eating and relaxing.  
I forgot my camera, so all these photos were taken on my phone.....
quality is not great, but you'll get the picture...te he!! 

I'll let the photos do the talking.....

Sharon loves to mix up fancy drinks!!  The glass on the far left is for
hubby (not a fan of fruit cocktails)



  
Dave's has many specialties, but his smoked salmon 
ranks very close to the top....mmm!!

We put up a Chinese lantern when we came back from our boat ride......


  and then topped off the night with a beach fire.  

Cheers

Evening stroll overlooking the ocean in Flatrock

Here's what you're likely to see if you take a stroll around the ocean area of Flatrock these days...

Seagulls hanging around, waiting for the last of the fishers 
to return with their last catch of the day.


These guys have reservations for the choice seats...

The fishers clean their catch here, and the seagulls get to feast!

What a pretty sight this dory was, as the sun was beginning to set ...
Cheers

Colors in my Flatrock Garden

After a very busy weekend, I took some time this morning, before my morning walk, 
to stroll around my garden, camera in hand.  

The weather has been lovely and all the shrubs and flowers are flourishing.......











Hope you all have a wonderful week!
Cheers
