a weekend of touring

We had the most excellent weekend! Canada Day was celebrated with family in the small town of New Germany...nothing like a small town parade...BBQ'd sausages...and an ox pull. Back home to the dogs for a family BBQ.

Saturday's original plans were changed, but we were up early so headed off to the Farmer's Market in Hubbards. We followed this by a tour around the Aspotogan Penninsula. I really enjoy this drive, and we try to visit a couple of times each year. The smell of the wild roses was amazing!

We stopped at Bayswater Beach and took the dogs for a walk. It was an odd mixture of sun and fog.

After our tour of the Aspotogan, we headed in to G and DIL's place, and had a wonderful afternoon and evening "at the lake".

We stayed over, and then headed out on Sunday to the Eastern Shore and Musquodoboit Harbour. We dropped off 3 of my windows to sell at The Tourist Trap. This is my first venture into selling through a shop....keep your fingers crossed for me!

Love Bayswater Beach. We headed north on the weekend - up through Windsor and then onto the 215 heading toward Truro. There's a beacch at Chevrie that's amazing, with the coolest rocks (Gypsom, we believe) at the end and a great place to walk the dog. Continued on to Burncoat to walk on the Fundy Shore, picnic and then back to Cheverie to check out how much the beach had changed with the tide. Amazing.

Good luck with your windows, Sara(is the dragonfly one still available?).

Yes . My fingers are crossed.
They're very beautiful.
An artist's life isn't easy. Nova Scotia and it's gifts help a great deal I'll bet.

I would love to go to Musquodoboit Harbour to see your windows. Middle Musquodoboit is my home base in NS and I feel the need to go back for a visit. I love the color of your Bayswater Beach.
