Visit to the Island

We are missing our island home and it's environment, so we decided it was time for a paddle over and have a walk through the forest to the studio and then onto the beach and rocks all around the island.

Lief walked most of the ways and climbed the rock, discovered deer bones and walked on the dock at the other side of the island.

It was wonderful and made us appreciate the island surroundings even more. It stilled our longing, just for a little while...

Knitting in the sun

Oh this has been so wonderful! Today there were beautiful blue skies and we basked in the sun. The little sage was soaking it up, just like me! During the afternoon naps of my sons, I was able to get some knitting in and finish a little neckwrap, yeah... Here's my little stash of neckwraps and beanies so far:

Beach walk treasures

We seem to be finding some odd treasures along the beach these days. On our last beach walk we found this moss covered chair tucked away in the bushes and of course we had to inspect it closer: I'm enjoying the light on these walks, it's like it's autumn, low sun, warm colours, but also beautiful greys. Wish I could go to the studio to explore these with paint. Oh well, for now photography has to do the trick...
