Here is the 3rd postcard in this swap, from Molly Dwyer, a lovely watercolour of the North Shore of Long Island. It is a peaceful picture, I think. You can see more of her work here at www.sasifricious.blogspot.com
I have a couple of places I like to visit that are a bit like this. If you drive for a couple of hours there is a quaint, French inspired place called ‘Akaroa’ which we visit as a treat. It was first settled by the French, before they realized the English beat them to it. Of course this is also forgetting that Maori already lived and occupied the land here before them – hence the maori name, ‘Akaroa’!
Perhaps despite all that, and some bloody early history, it is a picturesque harbour with Hectors Dolphins who visit, and the very occasional pod of Orca, and various trips can be taken by various boats to enjoy the scene. The settlement itself is pretty with a number of old (for us, anyhow) buildings and lots of French names, and good cafes and restaurants to enjoy along with the scenery!
Enough to say that Molly’s beautiful postcard reminded me of my own pretty harbour place that I love to visit! Thankyou Molly 🙂
