Whipping around the edges of Stone Pathways
Moving inwards from the edges
Running stitch with white thread creates ripples
my thinking is that stones in a pathway
would be surrounded by speckles of sand or gravel.
So I think I will try a colour thread....
....but it can't distract from the stones.
From stitching to walking
We walked the edge of the Annapolis Basin
Looking backwards towards Annapolis Royal
All of that grassland disappears at high tide.
We are safe atop the dyke
which was built by the French in 17th Century.
they built the dykes to protect the lowlands
that stretch towards the North Mountain.
Where the water's edge gets closer to the dyke
huge blocks of basalt act s protection against erosion.
The Rusty Pups use their noses
to learn about who has come down to the dyke in the night.
They often find snail shells
which the seagulls pick up on the mud flats at low tide
and carry to the dyke where they throw them on the ground
to break through to their dinner.
Leaving the water's edge and moving back inland.
I hope the sun shines for you today.
