A Tale of Two Cottages ~ Ocean Song Cottage




Hello everyone,

    I hope you had a great weekend.
We have had a lot of rain here lately.

     With the arrival of spring I look forward
    enjoying our little Ocean Song Cottage
once again.

     As some of you know a few years ago
we fell in love with the possibilities of
this little seaside cottage.
So after we bought it we set
about putting our mark on it.


A June view with the lupins blooming
on the lane down to Ocean Song Cottage.



We made sure we always had time
to relax and enjoy the view!


This little nook used to be an open
porch but my husband and son
enclosed it so we have a cosy
nook with a view and the sound
of the waves.


Tea time with a view.


Our grandchildren enjoy the
bunkie.


We added to shingles that will age
to grey.


A new floor and a lot of
white paint gave it a 
summery beach look.


A friend of my daughter's gave us this island
and some pantry cupboards which we
painted white and I think they are
the perfect addiction. The island even
came with a propane stovetop.



A hammock for relaxing on those beautiful
Island summer days.


We painted the cupboards and added
some to them with a new countertop.


We bought an old antique cast
iron tub after we enlarged the
bathroom. I enjoy the view of
the sea even from here.


The inside of the boathouse got a couple
of coats fo white paint and a couple of
sleigh beds in the front and a cosy
little single bed in back as well.


Oue son and granddaughter enjoying
some time on the beach.











The back room of the bunkie.
We put in the long window to
give more light. It was a french
door in a previous life.



The nook again.




Another shot of the bathroom





Our cottage has an open plan as 
we removed a couple of walls
so we could enjoy the view
from all sides from here.

We built on a good sized deck
so we could enjoy our meals out
here and or just relax.


A winter view...we can't stay
here in winter but we do enjoy
visiting for a couple of hours on
sunny days.



We enjoy watching the sailboats going by.



I love moonlit nights here with
the moon sparkling on the water.


New linens for a change.







I am not sure which I am looking
forward to the most ~ cottage
season or garden season!

When we bought our cottage there
was an old vacant cottage next door
      that went up for sale the following year
        so our daughter and her family bought it
and gave it a lovely makeover so if
you come back later this week
I will share the story of Eventide
Cottage with you.

Have a beautiful day!

Take care,
Carolyn
