Great drive last week, the light cast a different perspective on things. Victorian, Queen Anne, Georgian architectural influences!

Starting a design project. Chunky wool hat with local fibres.
Happy Day!! What are you knitting?
Trees are singing
In this beautiful place for a couple nights while I work at HMCS Acadia with cadets. I’m one of the wonderful bunch of nurses on staff at the clinic. I’m grateful to be able to stay at my uncles cottage in Smiths Cove while I’m at the base over the next 6 weeks. So many kids on buses arriving from all over the provinces and the world for training and fun. It’s been interesting to meet up with about 500 of them yesterday and over the next couple days. Great bunch of kids and young adults. I remember my Air Cadet camp days at Greenwood. It is a fantastic opportunity. They seem to have developed the camps into a fun place. I always felt I was getting in trouble by forgetting my cap or my hair was below my collar. I remember we borrowed the beautiful airforce blue uniforms for our final parade. Base staff loaned them to us. We were informed please do not get food on these uniforms. The minute I picked up my tray of spaghetti I had a bad feeling. Crash! My tray landed smack into the back of a regular officers beautiful blues and I got the coldest look from my commanding officer. Oh boy!
Peace is easy in a place like this:)
Work in progress
Stopped by The Wool and Tart last week. I love this place. Perched by the window and letting the sun shine in. Knitting with friends. Sipping tea and enjoying a yummy treat. Another happy place. I’m so grateful to have this little shop in the valley I live in.
Moving on to the sleeves. Such a lovely ombré effect.
Last week I needed a recharge so I mixed work with leisure and ended up on this beach.
Sometimes you just need to visit those happy places.
Had a lovely day yesterday in Mahone Bay and Lunenburg. Rebecca’s Restaurant always puts on a fantastic spread.
I enjoyed every mouthful.
Stopped at Have A Yarn for…yarn of course.
I love this yarn. She’s a talented hand dyer. One color morphs into another. I think this little beauty will become a shawl.
So many adorable places along the way. I found a few antique and vintage items to add to my collections.
There’s a little shop next to Rebecca’s that’s super cool. I have a love of succulents and she has a variety in stock. She found a little air plant and I found a bubble glass vessel and voila!
It was just a fantastic day!
Wandering around the Historic Gardens in Annapolis Royal recharged my batteries today.
