Piper's Cliff

 

This is the same point of land taken from two aspects. Lord Selkirk Park.

 

The title refers to the old days (25 yrs) when a piper piped atop that point every summer night at sunset.

Jolie roche qui se découpe bien sur le ciel bleu.

I wonder why they pipe no more?
Care MacADNski: It was a govt program for students.
Cette terre rouge est magnifique !
J'aime beaucoup la video proposée ..belle découverte musicale , merci
Care MacADNski: Yes the land is so pretty! The musician is an old friend of mine.

Lennie is Acadian like I am. Our descendants arrived from France 417 years ago.
Why did he do that?
Care MacADNski: She had a student job from a provincial govt. program. Selkirk was a govt park but now our community owns it.
i have never been in one spot for that long, Care. it is nice that you have a pleasant memory from this spot all that duration ago.
Care MacADNski: It is wonderful to have the choices we have in where to live.

I wonder if the piper eventually fell off.
Care MacADNski: The park that gave her the job probably needed a piece of infrastructure replaced or something.

Hmmmm...where does that piper pipe now, Care?
Care MacADNski: She has grown up and moved on. The government grants for such a job dried up too.
The shape of that outcrop in the lower picture is great, I guess it is ever changing with the tides and winds.
Care MacADNski: oh yes, you can see that some of that rock will make it's way to the floor over next winter. Wind, tide, freezing and thawing will take care of changing our cliffs until they are gone.
We've been to Selkirk, in Scotland, its on the way to the Buccleuch ( Buckalew ) ancestral home ( one of them ! )
