Harling Point Sculpture

We were delighted to discover this beautiful arrangement of natural objects at Harling Point recently. Carefully constructed of driftwood and rocks it will eventually be effected by tides, winds and winter storms but for now it is there for all to enjoy.

Moss Street Saturday Market Opens!

Forget the official start of Summer – for the folks in our neighbourhood Summer begins when the Moss Street Saturday Market returns.
In the center of the Market a band gets rockin'.
There's plenty of food that makes you want to eat – even when you're not hungry.The produce selection is still a bit thin compared to the choices available in the Fall.But really, where else would you find a blue monkey with a lavender belly button?

Dog of the Day

We would like to include a very special Dog of the Day.
Her name was Leica, a standard schnauzer, and she was our funny and feisty rambling companion for thirteen years. After moving to Victoria, and despite old age and declining health, she enjoyed three more months happily exploring our new neighbourhood. She was always eager to accompany us on our daily walks particularly if we included a visit to the beach to fetch sticks or simply stand in the shallow water to cool her paws.
Our Leica's spirit continues to walk along beside us wherever we go.
