We have been on holiday in our 100+ year old
school house for the past almost two weeks (with
a short two day break), and it does not have running water.
Most years when we come here we go to a lovely
park on the shore (that we think of as our beach --
although in Nova Scotia no one can "own" the
beach), and fill up our five 20 litre containers there.
It is about 15 minutes away, and we combine
getting water and going to the beach.
But this year the local parks do not have clean
drinking water, and we've been driving about
45 minutes away to a source a friend suggested.
When we get home to Toronto and turn on the tap it seems
like a miracle. And in fact it really is.
This painting is still in process, and I will finish
it when I get back to my home studio. I am
working on one here and it is coming along fine.
Have an enjoying your drinking water day.
