Take a Step Back in Time...

I can't begin to tell you all how enthused we are with our current houseguests, Adam & BJ! These young men are musicians, in Lunenburg for a week to study early Italian music. Their instrument is not a trombone, but a Sackbut, which was developed in the mid-15th century.

Along with another musician and friend, étienne, we went out to photograph the moon as it rose...Phenomenal! Then we turned back up the road a short distance to get the sunset, as I'd asked if I might get a silhouette of them with the instruments. They were also keen to have the picture and Adam says he's already posted it on FB.

We came home and had bacon-wrapped scallops for dinner and then sat around the table talking until almost 10! I loved the music history lesson we got, and further discovered we all love cooking, and in one case, photography! I can't believe how lucky we feel that they'll be here through next weekend!
fantastic image! so well done ... fav

@allie912 Your comment resonates with the fact that they'll be studying 15th Century music, and like here, their music, surrounded by natural beauty has a timeless quality. Thanks for your thoughtful stop over.
