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.

Vacation Days 

April13,2017 vacation Day 5 Still sunny, still hot. I started The Nest by Kenneth Oppel. The main character is a boy called Steven, in his words he tells the story. His parents, sister, and new baby are the people in his world. The new baby has a congenital defect. His stories and dreams reflect his struggle to understand. What I like about the book so far is the discussion about wasps, bees and nests. I’m totally in the category of nesters. Even on vacation I’ve made a nest with chairs and cushions. In the nest is yarn, music, and books. I’m having a hard time chronicling my adventures in the past few days as Wifi is not always available. As a chameleon adapts, so do I. So my posts are sporadic.
