I wish I practiced yoga, because trust me, this would be the place to connect with your inner self. As most of you know, my soul lives by the sea, but this is a different kind of wonderful. Peaceful, serene and breathtaking. I could live here.
Adele has taken me to see some old abandoned farmsteads, which is something I love to photograph. There's a mystery there, a sense of wonder and history. There is also a sadness to these places that families have left behind, whether by choice or not. The faces of these places have fallen, their souls remain, but their hearts broken by being left empty, without joy, laughter and life to keep them fulfilled. I know, I am a hopeless romantic, a dreamer, but I believe we breathe life into our homes. They are our cocoons, our refuges our nests.
Anyway, I'm getting away from what I wanted to share with you on this breathtaking morning. Believe it or not, but I, Sandra, have been up for almost two hours at it's only 7:12 a.m...that in itself is mind boggling.
I was "startled" awake by my lovely niece and her soft whisper..."Auntie, wake up, wake up, you have to come with me, I have something to show you! Bring your camera auntie, hurry!!!"
It took me a second to realize I wasn't at home in my bed, and another to realize the puppy on my bed wasn't my own! LOL
So, off I went, in my pj's, following this sweet girl and her little four legged friends!
Talk about being in total awe. I've rarely seen anything so mesmerizing in my life. I wanted to pull up a chair and watch the morning unfold before me. I hope I managed to catch some of the beauty of it with my camera, but really, I think being here and feeling it on your skin is the way to go. I am so very grateful to Adele, Tim, Peyton and Tristan for sharing their amazing home with me. I love you guys.
Adele calls this her "bowl of cream".
A bowl of cream indeed. I can only describe it to you as this magical mist that rises from the river, like froth on my morning latte, thick, soft, delicious. It slowly dissipates, revealing the majestic view of the valley and fields below. It's like opening a beautiful gift from above, slowly, appreciating every moment, not expecting the gift to be even more amazing than it's beautiful wrapping.
As I walked the property taking in all the beauty around me, I couldn't help but smile because no matter where you go on this slice of Heaven, there's always at least one four legged friend walking along with you.
Adele's beautiful garden.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful morning with me. I appreciate the company!
I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did, and that you'll check in again soon to see more photographs of Adele & Tim's little slice of Heaven.
Thanks for following!
