Port Mouton in the Winter

Some people go away to the seaside in the winter. They usually go south :) Where it is warm. I go east. Where is is not warm.
But our house in Port Mouton is very cozy. Very hygge.
We spent a glorious week there.

Here we are on Day 2 -- at Carters Beach
(please click on these photos -- they look so much better when they are large!)





 (can you see that little cape islander? it is coming in from hauling lobsters!)

Our little bit of festive decor :)


We woke up one morning and the frost looked so beautiful. I ran outside in my pajamas to take these shots!  The pond. Hence "Pond House" or Pond Cottage (what do you think of Pond Cottage?)







If you want to see more of the fantastic beaches in the area, please go to Sara Harley's blog and visit her videos of the 12 Beaches of Christmas (you will have to scroll down a bit to find them at the end of 2014). They are all within a short drive of  us. And they all look (and sound) so different.

Next up : one more post about Nova Scotia -- and then onto some art! Yes, I still make art. I don't just collect art supplies.

You're right; enlarging the photos makes them even more beautiful. I am particularly enamoured with the frosted berries - stunning! I like Pond Cottage; it sounds hygge.

Pond Cottage conjures up lovely summer images. I like your winter in NS better than our winter in ON. xo

Hey Sweet Lady,
Thanks for your words on my final blog post - I will always treasure each and every person who took time out of their lives for my blog.

Pond Cottage has a nice ring to it - very cooling to look at your images as I swelter here in mid summer.
