Everything's coming up roses
Yesterday's rain stopped and the sun came out and it was Hot, Hot, Hot (and humid). So a nice drive in an air conditioned car seemed like the best plan.
We headed out to Parrsboro, along the Bay of Fundy. It's a nice drive and not too far, only an hour. We stopped at the little summer restaurant I like, right on the beach. A few months ago I blogged (well, whined) about them taking my scallop burger off the menu. And you know me, I have trouble letting go of disappointments...... We had one of my favorite waitresses today - she is usually there when we are, except for that last disappointing visit. After I gave her my order, naturally I had to whine about the missing scallop burger. (I know, I can't help myself) She says "Oh, do you want one?" My eyes dilated in excitement. "Really" I say, "Can I have one even though its not on the menu?" Sure, she says. I'll get you one. WOOHOO!!!
And yes, it was every bit as good as I remember.
Then we went to a great little shop in town - Sweet Briar Boutique. Joan, the owner always has a great selection of unique items. I get a fair amount of jewellry there and always get compliments on the pieces. She also stocks a nice selection of purses at very reasonable prices. My last visit I was looking for a spring purse and all they had were small ones. That's no good for me, I like a big bag you can dump a bunch of stuff in. So today I same more of the same. UNTIL.....I meandered into the back room. A day bed FULL of big beautiful leather bags. I found my new Fall bag
Then we cut across country and stopped into a little bakery in Oxford. The name is Grumpy's Bakery, and I have to say I think he lived up to his name - Just sayin'
But luckily he had just put some fresh blueberry pies out in the case. Blueberry pie made in the Blueberry Capital of the World.......How could you go wrong? It was so good, we had it for supper with ice cream. (Yes, we only had dessert for supper)
I'm so glad my friend Kim didn't tell me to eat healthy on vacation!! Tomorrow morning I think I'll check out the Sackville Farmers Market.
