Sunset in Windows/ Weekend Reflections

Keswick, Ontario

I was standing on a spit at a boat launch area at sunset.

That is such a cool shot! You captured a double reflection. In the windows and the windows in the water! Perfect!

Is that a restaurant or a house? That's the best place I like to live close to the water and look at the reflection it's so beautiful!

Hi EG. We usually don't smell much (at least in our little villa) but once in a while we can hear the cows mooing at night. That's nice.

This whole area - I'd guess thousands of acres - was owned by Sidney Colen, a developer of some note around Florida. He bought the Circle Square Ranch, a very large cattle ranch years ago. On part of the land he developed what is now known as On Top of the World, a residential community for seniors (people over 55). OTOW is just a couple of miles south of us.

Mr. Colen also built Sholom Park, a meditational area north of OTOW. I've posted a number of photos of Sholom Park. Non-Jewish folks wonder about the word, Sholom...it's just another variant for Shalom, meaning "peace," or better yet, "wholeness."

A few years ago, Del Webb/Pulte bought land north of OTOW and began to develop Stone Creek. Stone Creek is to max out at 4,000 homes, 800 of which have been built.

Circle Square Ranch, in a reduced size, still exists on land north of OTOW and adjacent to Stone Creek. It's still a good-sized cattle operation. So we see lots of cows most days.

Moo! :-)

Viola said...

Very charming! So close to the sea! :) Have a nice evening!

Viola said...

By the way.... ;) You know what the cows say in Norwegian? They say MØØØ!
Hehe..

Viola said...

"Ø" pronounced as "ir" in "bird"..

God bless you!

Dianne said...

beautiful house, the sun is like fire in the windows and then softened in the reflection

lovely!!

see you there! said...

How DO you do that? I think that would make a wonderful postcard. With a little snow it would make a wonderful Christmas card. Go back in December???
