The new cover photo is one of my paintings.  Inspired by the sea around us here,
 the sights and the sound of its tireless changing.  

A week or so ago we went off to explore the new walking/bike path on Big Talbot Island.  Toward the end of our walk I retired to the car to sketch and my husband went on down to the ocean.  This is what awaits explorers as they walk this more difficult path.  
A veritable graveyard of downed trees that have turned white in the sun.  

Another side of the seashore here.  Over the water one can see some of the beaches of Amelia.
The walking path and seashore  is a short drive over the bridge to the Island.

A couple of lovers are walking the path to the sea.  The photo came out looking like
the cover of a romance and mystery novel, didn't it?

The map gave us directions, it will do the same for you.  Hope you can make it out.

The newly created Pathway gives credence to the adage: "If you build it, they will come."
We were there on a Sunday and walkers and bikers alike, often in family groups, were
making good use of the pathway.

"The woods are lovely,  dark and deep,
I have promises to keep, 
and miles to go before I sleep.
and miles to go before I sleep."

Robert Frost
