The Cove part 2


This is the part of rock face Chloe & Tim climbed. As you can see, there is no path.

He’s so small against the size of the rocks

We were so very lucky to see all the amazing wildlife we saw here. We’d see Blue Heron, Lots of Seals, Dolphins, American Bald Eagles flying low overhead, and we’d see the occasional small whale. One day we came down and a huge seal was sitting at the end of the cliffs on the right hand side of the cove, basking in the sunshine.

Not many kids can say they sat on an iceberg (even though it was pretty small)

I knew  if I shouted Timmy he would come running. I shouted: “Chloe, come down from there please.” Hoping Tim would follow. Thankfully he always wants to be where we are. I watched as he picked out a way back down and followed Chloe back onto the beach and safety.


Timmy has always been a pretty fearless little dog.  From mid December through to mid April, due to snow & ice we weren’t able to get to the cove, it was like torture to all three of us… LOL  Timmy loves the beach and water every bit as much as Chloe and I.
Apart from beach glass we collected pretty stones, shells and feathers and other bits and pieces we thought of as, would be treasures. When the sun shines on the glass jars filled with beach glass, it creates beautiful rainbow prisms all over the ceiling, walls and floor.

We moved into the city 2 years ago but, at least we still have a harbour we can walk alongside of every day. Nowhere near as wonderful as ‘our’ freedom beach walks but thank goodness, it is by the water.

P.S. A few have asked this question so, in answer:  Apart from the deepest (middle) of it, much of the Northumberland Strait freezes over during the coldest part of winter. The icebergs are what appears once the strait begins to thaw out in early to mid April. I have other videos of more snow and icebergs.  If anyone is interested in seeing them, please let me know.

Let Your Light Shine

I try to live this.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine,
as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And, as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence
automatically liberates others.”
