No, I haven't gone to a southern climate during this very cold February. I wish. I haven't had much to photograph lately other than snow so I went back into my albums and found some photos that I haven't shared yet. Last July, on my birthday to be exact, my sister, Maggie, and I went to our favourite coastal town of St. Andrews by the Sea. We spent a wonderful day there walking around, dining on an outdoor patio by the water eating lobster rolls (sandwiches), shopping and walking on the beach. It was a reprieve from visiting our brother who was battling cancer in the hospital.
I just happened to find some fences in these photos to share with you for Good Fences this week.
This fence was made of cork floats strung on ropes and the yarn has been hanging around it for many seasons. This fence is in front of a shop called Cottage Craft where knitters make beautiful sweaters, etc. for sale. I have a beautiful sweater that my sister, Pat, knit for me when I was about 20 with yarn from this shop. Sadly, the wharf around the building was deemed unsafe and the business was closed all summer which was a real shame. The building is a historic one and needed many expensive repairs. I hope it will be open for this year's season.
The chain link fence around Cottage Craft - July 2014.
The fence along the wharf has wire cables.
This white picket fence is alongside the property of the historic Sherrif Andrews house.
If you look closely you can see a fence around the dock/deck. It is posts and rope.
Thanks for joining me for a taste of a lovely summer day by the sea. I'm sure it is not warm there right now either.
I'm sharing with the folks at Good Fences # 47.
Have a great day!
