A Whole New Wall

I recently saw a spot on the evening news drawing our attention to the Aylesford Wall which happens to have been painted by local artist Larry Lee back in 2013. I’ve posted photos of this wall a few times in the past, if you want to check them out they’re Here and Here. There are more photos in each of these posts and you can see more of the details of the artist’s work. FYI the second link had better photos as the first post had photos taken in winter.

 

If something good has come out of this pandemic it might very well be our rediscovery of the beauty in our own part of the world and our appreciation of what already exists in our own backyard. There is so much to see and enjoy. 

Have you had the opportunity to rediscover your world since the pandemic arrived? Please share if you have. I’d love to hear about it.

The Wall–Revisited

A few winters back while driving through Aylesford I stopped at The Wall and snapped some photos. I posted them here.

As you well know snapping photos along side a Nova Scotia road in winter doesn’t make for such wonderful photos, not when there are dirty snow banks in the way. But I promised myself I’d return one day and get some better shots. Today seemed like a good day to share the photos what with the weather we’re experiencing. I hope everyone on the East Coast is staying safe and warm today.

How’s that for taking a dull ordinary wall and turning into a thing of beauty? I think artist Larry Lee deserves a huge big thank you!

And since it’s January 27th I want to give a shout out for Family Literacy Day here in Canada. We all know how important literacy is! The experts say even 15 minutes a day can improve a child’s literacy skills dramatically and help parents improve their skills as well. So, with the weather being what it is, today seems like a great day to start flexing those literacy muscles.

What are your plans for Family Literacy Day other than staying in out of the storm?
