I’m certain some people read my blog because they love wine, but for over a month most of my posts have been in pictorial form about my vacation, or ceilings on my vacation or looking up trees….hence the title “Oldfield Wanderings”.
This one is about rocks and sand. At least a blog about dirt is getting closer to vines, if that’s what you’re tuning in for.

Wow, your artistic side is really emerging. Lovely
Sandra, I have found that people who appreciate wine all have a high AQ (appreciation quotient) and that this even extends to rocks, sand and feathers.
I like that…AQ
Beautiful and thoughtful – so pleased to see the lines of Khalil Gibran. Thank you.
love and miss you. got the picture…….oh boy, I am happy.
Sandra, shortly after moving to Nova Scotia we collected some beach stones, shells, beach glass, small pieces of drift wood and dried seaweed and a blue jay feather as well as about 3 pounds of fine white sand from a beach and shipped it to @figandpepper ‘s 3 year old god son in Kelowna. Included were instructions to his mom to place the sand in a container and bury the rocks, shells , glass, etc.. underneath, with the feather on top, for her son to explore.
Needless to say he was wide eyed with excitement as he dug about the sand to find the interesting bits. He can’t wait to visit “aunties Ova Scotia”. He even told his mom he was planning a trip soon and wanted to know how long it would take for him to walk there.
