Oh my sweet people, I've never given you much consistency with my posts eh? My blogging has no real rhythm. I do try to work on that, honest I do.
This weekend's going to be pretty busy and as I still haven't worked out how to schedule my posts like the big girls, I'm going to blog during this week and then take a break at the weekend to allow myself time to meet up with l4 Amazeballs reaching our shores!
So, let's keep up the momentum with today's post, one from my Notes series.
Allow me to properly introduce you to La Duchesse, a dear friend from Holland who I've known for yonks. She used to live on the island and since returning to her home country, Holland, she tries to pop over to stay with us every year or two.
During her last visit she kidnapped my camera and took some pics of herself, (READ ABOUT IT HERE). Oh the little imp that she is!
She also happens to be a regular commenter on my blog.
We're following her on her island walks. She never leaves home without a camera and in sharing her photos with us we can view the island through her eyes.
Today we find our visiting Duchesse on one of our 'hood beach stretches, Cobo and Grandes Rocques, early morning.
Then she hopped back down there at sunset for a photo op.
She likes her sunsets.
La Duchesse has a passion for camera and paints and her artistic eye comes across in her pics.
A la perchoine
What beautiful photographs! I especially love the crisp sereneness of the water in that first snap - gorgeous!ReplyDelete

Wow! These photographs are absolutely stunning! I wish I had that ability with a camera! Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
You and me both, Laura! My friend is so thrilled to read these lovely comments. Hugs, x.Delete
Absolutely gorgeous, adding you in a pic, well that’s the cherry on top!ReplyDelete
Thanks, sweetie. I'll see if I can get my friend guest-photographing when I get back! Hugs, x.Delete
What beautiful pictures, looks like paradise found!ReplyDelete
You too could find paradise when you do Europe next year! Hugs, x.Delete
I don't mind that you don't post to a strict schedule. It's like having an unexpected phone call from a friend or bumping into a friend at the markets - always a pleasant surprise. Sometimes, I find, it's the irregular treats and random pleasures that add joy to the week.ReplyDelete
Oh Kathryn, I SO loved reading your comment. My heart swelled with goodness and love! Thanks for popping in, wishing you huggy happiness, x.Delete
Oh my! Your beaches are glorious! Thanks to La Duchesse and to you for this beautiful post I also find your irregular treats and random pleasures something to look forward to. Actually, I had barely noticed that they were irregular so if I were you I wouldn't give it another thought. Enjoy your dear friend. xoReplyDelete
And Karen, my heart is swelling yet again when reading your lovely comment. It's so very sweet of you to say such lovely things and on behalf of La Duchesse too, I thank you so very much for popping in with your basket of kindness! Hugs, x.Delete
Beautiful! Very much like the area of the east coast of Australia that I live in!ReplyDelete
You're most welcome to drop by for a cup of inspiration,
Oh Jennifer, thanks for popping in today, I had no idea that Australia had similar coastline. After my hold I must check out Australia's east coast on your blog for more surprises! Hugs, x.Delete
What gorgeous photos!!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Jodie, the girl did good eh?! Happy 4th to you, x.Delete
she certainly has a photographers eye. Fab pics.ReplyDelete
Oh hasn't she, Anna, her pics capture scenes so much better than mine. Hugs, x.Delete
