Partners can me a number of things. I immediately thought of my husband and all the married couples that we know but partners can also be things that go well together, like wine and cheese, eggs and bacon, Batman and Robin, fork and knife, socks, twins, etc..
Treasure for me is not my jewellery or furnishing or even my house. I learned a long time ago that ‘things’ don’t bring happiness, certainly not for a sustained period of time. My treasures are more life experiences that I’ve had and the memories that they evoke. My wedding day, giving birth and watching my children grow up are my greatest treasures. Now I can also add my grandchildren to that list.
If I started to post all my favourite memories I would be posting dozens of pictures. Instead I’ve decided to post some of my favourite ‘treasured’ photos from the past. I love these old photos.
Bending implies that you or something is flexible, either physically or mentally. When a person bends mentally they are able to see both sides of an opinion or argument and can ‘bend’ or change their own way of thinking. Bending physically is easier to demonstrate in photographs.
Last week my husband was in London with my stepson and grandson. While there they spent a good deal of time with our son, B and his family. Here he is with B walking along a street in London. I’m assuming that J took the photo.
On Day 4 we took another road trip but this time we headed east toward Prince Edward Island.
There are two ways to get to the island by car. One is taking a ferry and the second is crossing over on the Confederation Bridge. The bridge is 12.5 kilometres long and is only two lanes. We were wondering what happens when the bridge needs repairs. Well just as those words left our mouths we started to slow down. Luckily it was not a busy day and the construction only affected about 50 metres of the bridge. Once we passed the workers traffic resumed at the normal rate.
The unfortunate part about travelling to PEI on November 1st is that most of the museums and points of interest have closed for the season but the plus side is that the place isn’t swarming with tourists.
Cows Creamery is a big deal in this part of the world and it was opened today.
PEI is famous for its red soil, potatoes and north shore beaches.
On the drive home we drove into the sun but we also experienced a beautiful sunset.
Sunday was a very busy day. We started out at 9:00 in the morning and drove to Hopewell Rocks. When we got there the tide was out and we were able to walk on the ocean floor and explore the caves.
After walking 8000 steps we were in need of some nourishment so be we drove to the town of Alma. We stopped at the Lobster Store and I ordered a lobster roll. It was on my bucket list of one of the things I wanted to eat while out here. Unfortunately, I have discovered that some of my tastebuds are not working as they should since I had COVID. As a result I am not able to give a fair review of the meals that I’ve eaten.
After our meal we drove to Fundy National Park. This was one of the few places in New Brunswick that was actually opened to the public, Most places are closed after Thanksgiving but it doesn’t stop people from visiting. You have to park outside the entrance and walk to get in. All the information centres and refreshment facilities are closed. The upside is that you can see these places for free.
Our last stop on our way home was the lighthouse at Cape Enrage.
Cape Enrage derives its name from the large reef that extends south into Chignecto Bay, which causes the water off the point to become extremely violent, particularly at half tide when the reef is partially exposed and the water is moving quickly.
After being on the road for seven hours it was good to get back to my room and relax for an hour before dinner.
