Weekend Adventures

In Sites and Sounds on December 14, 2008 at 7:20 pm

Our weekends are usually taken up with lots of exploring and investigating and this weekend was no exception! On Saturday we headed along to Mahone Bay (stop for Tim Horton’s coffee) then along through Chester to East River where we stopped for a much need pee in the bushes (bloody coffee) and walk along the railway line. After our walk (might I just add it was freezing) we headed back to Chester for a Subway. Following lunch we went back to East River and headed out along Aspotogan Peninsula round to Fox Point near where we stopped for more coffee at Bike and Bean before going to Tantallon (see blue markers on map). After all those back roads it was time to head home along the highway!

Marriot’s Cove Walk

In My day to day on October 21, 2008 at 8:20 pm

Last Sunday (19th) I woke up to the smell of bacon and waffles… minus the maple syrup still – there is just no convincing me, it tastes funny!

Headed out to a nice wee place called Marriot’s Cove for a long ‘fall’ walk. The trees are ‘absolutely’ (a favorite Canadian word) ‘amazing’ (and another one)! We had fun fooling around, playing with the rocks and munching on apples. There are millions of apple trees everywhere you go in Nova Scotia, no need to pop out to the supermarket…

Apple Munching - a new sport!
