Beauty. It’s all around us in Cre­ation: fall colours, a singing bird, a sun­set.

But none is more fas­ci­nat­ing that the beauty of love. Yes. It’s a ra­di­ance from within.

When asked to choose a favourite of our Change Is­land out­ing, only one (ac­tu­ally two) sub­ject came to mind. Mr. and Mrs. Chaf­fey, or as they pre­fer, Fred and El­iz­a­beth.

Their im­mac­u­late mod­ern home with a dis­tinct con­nec­tion to the past: the bell from El­iz­a­beth’s school, a paint­ing of Fred’s ferry boat, and other trea­sures.

El­iz­a­beth, a farm girl from Saskatchewan. Fred, born here on the Rock! Mar­ried for over 60 years. As I sat there, the ra­di­ance from both clearly told the bond that had kept them to­gether all those years, in good times and in the tough times.

The most “artis­tic, cre­ative” photo of the day? Prob­a­bly not! My favourite? Most def­i­nitely!

Thank you, Fred and El­iz­a­beth, for al­low­ing us to “in­vade” your home and cre­ate a mem­ory for us!
