Mavilette Beach

On a very, very windy day, Adam, a friend and I went to Mavilette Beach to see the sights. We also went out for lunch at the retaurant there, which was yummy. It was incredibly windy and chilly, but also lovely (as I hope you can tell from the pics.)


another day, another outing

Adam and I went on another little expedition this morning, this time sans cameras. We looked up hiking trails in NS and saw that there's a trail in Pubnico. So off we went to find it.

I wouldn't exactly call it a trail, more like a section of rocky beach (mostly, the rocks were just that awful size that makes walking very difficult and ankles sore) and then a bunch of road. We walked the beach and back, and didn't do the road part. It was a sunny and windy morning, and we had a good time, despite the sore ankles. You can see the Pubnico Wind Farm from the beach, which always makes me glad, since it's that much power not being produced by coal.

In other miscellany, the neighbours have decked out their house and yard for Halloween, and it's quite a sight. There are ghosts, ghouls, and goblins of every shape and size, giant scary-ish things, and a graveyard. And it's all lit up. What strikes me as funny is that each grave marker has RIP and birth / death dates on it. I don't think they were too well thought out. One says 1500-1831. The rest are equally implausible. But they definitely get the award for Halloween spirit.


I've attained!

Inchy McIncherson is on Cute Overload at this very minute in time! Be sure to check it out. Thanks for all of the compliments, and I'm always glad to share the cuteness. :)

explosive excitement

I just received what might prove to be the most exciting e-mail I will ever or can hope to ever receive. In July, Adam and I went camping, and I took some pictures of an inchworm who landed on my book as I was reading in the hammock. I sent them to Cute Overload, and just got word that they will be posted there tomorrow! Stay tuned...


can't get enough of autumn

A couple more pictures from Ellenwood Lake on Thanksgiving morning. Leaves in the bottom of the lake, and trees reflected in it.

Thanksgiving morning

Adam and I went for a beautiful walk at Ellenwood Park this morning, to collect leaves and get some fresh air and beauty in our systems. It was the perfect way to spend a fall morning!
