It is the street that snakes and curves along the waterfront past Dallas Road.
Ross Bay Beach just across the street from the Ross Bay Cemetery.
This beach is open to the Straits and fierce storms are common in the winter.
The beach is vulnerable to the gale force winds and the crashing waves.
Large rocks were brought in and placed on the beach to help alleviate future storm damage.
There was a serious threat that the road and the graves would be eroded and washed away.
You would never know that this idyllic scene could be whipped up into a boiling frenzy of white caps and rolling waves...the water crashes over the seawall and onto the road.
When there is a storm of this magnitude the road is blocked off.
Logs are thrown high up into the air like match sticks and land "willy-nilly" on the sidewalk.
Driftwood is washed ashore along the beach.
An artist carved this on the roots of a huge log.
Art for all of the beachcombers to enjoy!
Beach combing on a calm day is very meditative.
The sound of the waves as they greet the shore
the call of the gulls
the gentle salty sea breeze
many interesting stones and logs intertwine in muted shades
stones feature prominently in this garage
look at the "green" roof
this structure has been here as long as I can remember
A fence of flowers...all dahlia blooms.
the stone wall along the boulevard
inside is a large vegetable garden
This enchanting home and garden just oozes charm.
I like to think of it as "Dahlia Cottage."
The couple who live here are often seen tending their garden and flowers.
Geraniums run riot in the Spring and Summer and come Fall the Dahlias are the stars.
I stepped on the scale after the weekend and my heart nearly skipped a beat...
I have to get back on track and count my WW points!
