|View to Chantry Island|
We are guests at a cottage at Southampton, Ontario. The owners are absent.
|Miles and Miles of sandy beach|
Southampton has a wide sandy beach and one can walk for about four miles along the shore, of Lake Huron accompanied by ducks and loons. The picturesque town has beautiful homes and cottages and gardens which rival English gardens for flowers and colour. It is early in the season and many of the cottage owners have yet to return. (these being second homes for many) I found myself alone on the beach each day.
|My favourite cottage - many sport historical signs|
|Helen Tilston's easel set up and painting blissfully until !!!!|
"Candle on the Water, sung by Helen Reddy"
I set up my easel and there is not a human being in sight. I am happily painting when suddenly I hear a trained male voice singing "Candle On The Water"
|James is on Right gesturing and Chris is the 3rd. male from right, second row|
The evening went all too quickly with the grand finale of "Hallelujah"
|The Edwin Jame Festival Chorus and the Chantry Singers combined|
Following the concert we chatted with our new best friends James and Chris and exchanged cards and phone numbers. We look forward to seeing them in England when next we visit.
|I have titled my painting "The Music's Always There With You"|
What treasures have you found on a beach lately?
