Enjoying a Sunny Winter Day

Paul was going outside to fill our bird feeders so I decided to join him in the yard to get a little fresh air since it was such a beautiful sunny day, with no wind. The temperature was -6C.

After enjoying this view of the ocean from across our back yard, we decided to walk down to the beach to take a closer look. We thought the tide would be too high for a walk.

We were surprised to find that the tide was lower than we expected so we strolled. The beach was very different today with the waves lapping over mounds of rocks and frozen waves near the shoreline. There were many nuggets of ice that looked like white seaglass. It was such a treat to be able to walk the beach still, being 13 December. We didn't find any seaglass today but we did get to enjoy time by the ocean, treasure enough.

As we were walking back the street near our house, we saw Santa and a couple of his helpers. Santa was participating in a local food drive with the Town of Beresford, collecting donations for the less fortunate.

Please remember to give to those who are less fortunate....


  1. Glad to see Paul feeding the birds and not stepping on the little Japanese maple.

    I put out some food yesterday and the feeder was swarmed by a flock of chickadees.

    Love the Santa. Just brought three large baags of food in for the drive we had here at work. They say the number of people using the food bank here has almost doubled this past month.
