Summer Time Relaxation at Ocean Song Cottage

Hello everyone,

We have had lots of beautiful sunny days
albiet some pretty hot ones.
I am thankful that we could relax  at our
little Ocean Song Cottage where there is
always a breeze off the water.
I planted a fairy tale rose  by the cottage
so I can enjoy pretty bouquets all
summer with my tea.

They are so pretty with
a nice perfume as well.

Enjoying iced tea by the roses.

Of course, my Fairy Tale roses are not
the only roses to enjoy at the cottage,
these hardy  roses bloom in abundance in
early summer and then again in September
they put on a show again.
I have planted some hardy roses at the front
of the cottage that are just getting established.

Some days it is nice to enjoy
tea indoors by the window
where we can still enjoy the

The tides are always changeing.

We enjoy relaxing at the waters edge,
just admiring the beauty.

Tea with our sweet granddaughter who turns
thirteen today.....how the time flies!

                                     The evening sky is so pretty and of course
                                                 always changeing.

                                                 We got a new countertop delivered yesterday
                                                  so hopefully by the weekend they will be installed
                                                  and our little cottage will be pretty much complete!
                                                      I will take some pics to share soon of  the changes
                                                  we have made. It hasn't all been relaxing here but
                                                  fun to make it our own little dream cottage.
                                                       Now I am off with a book to enjoy  a little
                                                  more summer relaxation!
                                                                             Thanks for visiting,

It is raining cats and dogs here, coming down like someone is pouring a bucket.

Oh the views from your cottage are just a delight. Love the celebration table with your granddaughter. How I can dream of sitting in one of those chairs by the sea.

Hello Carolyn, I have followed your blog and Pinterest for years. Your garden makes my heart sing! Would you possibly contact me at toothpick5555@yahoo.com ?? I'll be on PEI for a day and it would make my bucket list to see your garden for just a moment. All the Best. Sandy

What a lovely seaside cottage. The sky and the boats on the water are so lovely. Such a beautiful home to enjoy with loved ones. Santa Monica bay can get breezy, so there are time when it is lovely with white sailboats. I love the seaside as well as you do.

What a beautiful cottage. The pictures of the sky and the sailboats are so lovely. I hope you enjoy these lazy summer days with loved ones all summer long. Our Santa Monica bay can get quite breezy and the sailboats will be out in numbers for us to enjoy.
