Weekend Away




We had a great weekend away, at a cottage just outside Lunenburg. I really love that area of Nova Scotia, it's so beautiful. Every time we visit, I want to move there and be close to the sea, but then I think of a million practical reasons not to. I have to stop doing that.

After all the stresses of the craft show, it was great to go to a place with absolutely nothing to do except sit in front of the fire, read, drink and of course, most importantly, eat. I finally finished reading my Alice Munro book (great, as usual) and read the whole of "Julie and Julia." I started on "The Memory Keeper's Daughter" which is pretty good so far, I'm looking forward to reading more of it this weekend.

We did venture out of the cottage for a little bit - on Saturday morning, we went to La Have Bakery. You have to take a little car ferry to get there, but it's worth it. Yummy food in a very funky type setting. We had lunch at the Knot Pub too, we love it there. It's like somewhere a hobbit would stop and have a drink. It looks especially cute now that it's decorated for Christmas. Sunday came all too soon, and we headed back home with heavy hearts. We are both looking forward to a week off at Christmas.
I wanted to add many more photos of the trip, but blogger seems to be acting up tonight. You can check them out over on my Flickr.

You mean there is more to Nova Scotia than "Trailer Park Boys?" (yah, + there is more to Nashville that cowboy boots + guitar players). It looks so so wonderful, how DID you muster up the ability to leave? And that muffin...I SO hungry right now, but don't think I can make it there + back on my lunch hour. You SHOULD move to the coast.
I have been toying with the idea of using Flicker + your slide show may have just pushed me in that direction.
Enjoy your day, while thinking of Lunenburg (I know I will).
