Sunday, May 5th, was a glorious day - one that should really fall under the heading of Summer’s bliss.
I was down at English Bay Beach on a particular mission (not today's tale) and while there I took in the sights around me.
I espied a beautiful woman sunning herself up on the rocks.
There was something quite exotic about the tilt of her head, the air of her manner and the way she had wrapped her hair with her scarf that begged a closer look.
Do you ever do that… see something that needs closer inspection and appreciation… and do just that - inspect and appreciate up close; well, I do.
So I did… here is what I saw. Can you see the beauty too… captivating, alluring, enticing and yet tranquil, soothing, uplifting - very Zen like.
I partook in delightful conversation with Jaziz (dare I say, exotic in both appearance and name) and learned she was an Interior Designer, with her own business - to which I believe fate played its hand in this unlikely meeting as I am in need of some expert advice on my colour palate for the upcoming rebuild of my house.

From atop the rocks I had the advantage of catching a rare appearance of some other beauties; two mermaids had swum ashore to sun themselves before heading back out to sea.
As I made my way from English Bay Beach toward Sunset Beach, a stones throw away, I drank in the beauty that Mother Nature laid out before me.
Here... take a look at the beautiful vistas I enjoyed on route to my car.

Thank you for joining me for my Sunday outing even if it is a few days after the fact. It’s always fun when the sun can be enjoyed long after it has set.
I hope the sun is shining on you and yours… including those of you busy in your gardens.
A while back I mentioned a blogging friend of mine, Bushman - a gardener extraordinaire - I've been dropping in on his blog and am wowed with what he's been up to - if you are at all serious about gardening this man is your go-to guy.
How is your Spring shaping up… is it the garden or the beach that's calling your name?
