Louisbourg Day 3

So many great things today. Working at processing artifacts.
So beautiful! I love puzzles!

Got some fresh air when we checked out a few things around The Fortress.

After Volunteering I headed to Kennington Cove a popular beach nearby.

A truly glorious day!

Mahone Bay Adventure

Today was a grand day for gallavanting.  Sunny and hot.  I slept in and landed at Rebecca’s Restaurant at 1300.  My favorite destination for lunch in Mahone Bay.  The menu is always refreshing.  I had Sweet Potato soup, Shrimp and mushroom Risotto cakes with a side salad and for dessert traditional Nova Scotia Strawberry Shortcake.  It was made with the best tea biscuit I’ve had since my grandmother’s for sure.  The new location is brillant.  On Edgewater Street, it has loads of parking and seating.

Right Next door there is a newly opened shop, called Sprig Apothecary, it literally had at all my favourite things for sale.  Succulents, lotions, beautifying products, and pretty little pots.  So I added a little succulent to my growing indoor garden and some beauty products to pamper myself.  It was fun, like a day at the spa, my style.

Down the way I stopped  at Have A Yarn, and found some new color ways.   It’s a new company RavensWood Fibre Co.  A local company!


Another new shop on Main is a sweet little interior design shop.  Here Nor There. I picked up a seagrass basket, and a macrama plant holder.  The plant holder I’ve been ages waiting for and it’s perfect.


I dropped in to Birdsall-Worthington Pottery for a gander and found beautiful hand made earrings.


Finally ended up at Peacocks Antiques and found some awesome vintage clothing, stay tuned for those outfits.  Including a perfect birthday dress for July.

Maudie

This movie was awesome!  I laughed, cringed, and cried.  Ethan Hawke (Everett Lewis) and Sally Hawkins (Maud Lewis) play the lead roles.  Sally Hawkins obviously put a lot of heart and soul into the role.  Ethan, I haven’t watch him in many roles, Dead Poets Society probably was the last one I saw.  I’m totally in his fan club now!  The Cinematography was beautiful.  Shot in NFLD but resembled Digby and Marshalltown N.S.  I was impressed.
