the old dining hall and the largest tree we've ever seen - our morning walk

Nature gives every time and season
some beauties of it's own;
and from morning to night,
as from the cradle to the grave,
it is but a succession of changes
so gentle and easy that
we can scarcely mark their progress.

Charles Dickens

Quiet here this morning- just lots of gulls, a loon off in the distance and the crows


  1. I LOVE the shadow image of you and Miss D. So much the photographer and her dog.

    mona & the girls

  3. I love hearing the loon. I used to hear it at my in-laws' lake cabin in Michigan. The cabin was sold years ago... I miss hearing that sound.

  4. Love the shadow, Susan. I love those quiet mornings when all I hear is the birds. Doesn't happen often in a neighborhood, but that quiet is delicious. :)

  5. Another across-the-pond question: whose dining hall? Why is it there? Who used it and what is it now?

    Lovely photos, espec. the shadow dog and human!

  6. We have rain.
    Lovely sounding rain.
    I woke up with Edward asleep on the Songwriter's pillow.

  7. I have never heard a loon. Sounds intriguing. Beautiful tree with sun rays!! Thank you for this wonderful blog!

  8. Fun to see the shadow of you and Winnie D. :)

  9. your shadow is wonderful on the side of the dining hall. and is that miss winnie d next to you? how cute!

    hugs to all of you, especially miss winnie.
