A Year Almost Gone

... to the west, the sky, the crescent moon , the fir and spruce skyline

... to the south, the vastness of that preforming sky

 ...the abundance of wild rosehips along the seashore

 ...granite boulders at the beach, bordering beach and cottages

 ...break of day from the kitchen window out over the Bay of Fundy

Looking forward to a bright new year that will soon appear.

Saying Good-Bye to 2015.... but not to the beauty of nature.

Cheers All and the Best to you !

Yes Gwen, I will join you in saying goodbye to 2015 and I imagine that others will do so too for a variety of reasons.

2016 will be for me an anniversary year it being the 30th year of my arrival on this island and the 25th year of having lived in this house.

It is also the 100th anniversary of The Easter Rising !

I cannot believe how quick it went. Maybe because I am getting older. And gorgeous pictures as usual.

Happy New Year to you! x

(And I would love to be able to make something with all those rosehips!)

Gwen Buchanan said...

Hi Janice.. The roses love the sandy well drained soil here on the coast and they grow abundantly. These were relatively small at about 3/4" but another lovely hedge near the river grow huge like crab apples.
Wishing you a beautiful New Year!! xo

What beautiful photos of such a special place. You have such a wonderful high vantage point, over the water.
