Advocate Cottage

                                                            
                                                                 SOLD
Advocate is a tiny village 'Down Shore" as they say up in Nova 
Scotia. Don's Sea Captain Grandfather and some of the other relatives are buried in the old cemetary down there and it is one of the places we 'ride' to each time we go to Parrsboro. How many times do you think I asked Don to stop or turn around so I could get this shot? I was lucky too. My camera's battery died and I had my old Sony Cybershot along and used it as a backup. Don't you love the classic 1950's teardrop windows in the door? You see lots of them up there as well as the no front steps no matter how high off the ground the door is.

Gypsy Woman, this is truly one of my favorite paintings I have ever seen! I don't know what it is, but it calls to me. I can't stop looking. Bravo, my dear!
