Togetherness A moment of togetherness this morning at Boatstrand Harbour as a fixated seagull and I watched The Maid Maggie on the silvery sea.

So peaceful Jean. Love it. You’re making me pine for the ocean. 🙂 The little fishing boat is so typical of what we see in Eastern Canada. There is a Discovery Channel show here that is called “Deadliest Catch”(http://www.discovery.com/tv-shows/deadliest-catch/ ) that chronicles the adventures of these boats fishing on the ocean.
I used to see them in coastal areas outside Halifax (a large commercial port). There is a beautiful little fishing community about 45 km from Halifax called Peggy’s Cove ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peggys_Cove,_Nova_Scotia ) that we used to visit occasionally. It is a world renowned tourist area as well as a working fishing village. Part of the beauty is the fact that the whole area is sitting on exposed granite rock.
Great post. Thanks forte memories.
Paul, sorry to be making you pine for the ocean. I just love the pic of Peggy’s Cove. It looks not at all unlike Ireland!
Pretty amazing,isn’t it? – The similarities of the two. There is a geological theory that , a one point millions of years ago the two were joined. That explains the similarities of geography and geology.And then it was the Irish who were major settlers of those lands centuries ago. Irish Pubs (the height of civilization – Ha!) are big around there. Ha! 😀
It certainly is amazing! The Irish connections are very strong indeed and talked about a lot, especially here in Waterford.
Lovely shots Jean 😊
Thanks Clare. It was magic out there with the mist not knowing what it was doing.
Beautiful pictures, Jean!
Thanks very much, Dana.
That is a quite magical shot of The Maid Maggie Jean.
Hariod, so glad you like the photo. The Maid Maggie is like an old friend to me as she is a part of the coastline where I swim.
The gull is keeping its’ eyes on whether they bring in some fish and then it will become their (fishermen) friend to help them with their bounty…Both pictures speak …
Beady eyes, indeed.
Reblogged this on Perth Words… exploring possibilities. and commented:

Silvery sea indeed. I love that one.
Thanks Suz. It was divine.
