Another glorious sunny day in the Annapolis Valley. Teddy and Heidi, Chris’s parents Shitzu, seem to be getting along better or perhaps Heidi is just becoming more tolerant after a few days of Teddy’s antics. They rough house a fair bit but it all seems to be in fun.
We worked around the house this morning and then all took a drive out to Margaretsville to have a look at the Bay of Fundy. The tide was in so there wasn’t too much in the way of wave action along the coast. The art gallery at the end of the pier was open for business even on a Sunday so we had a little wander through. I was surprised to see a sign saying no photographs of individual pieces. I’m thinking any exposure for rural co-op artists has to be a good thing but perhaps not. We didn’t buy anything but enjoyed looking.
We managed a walk out to the end of the old pier. A few guys were fishing off the end of the pier but nobody seemed to be catching anything. Several families staying in the bed and breakfasts near by were out beach combing. The shore line is quite rocky with not much sand to walk on but the scenery is beautiful nonetheless.
I grabbed today’s shots with my iPhone. Chris’s father used to know the owner of the small shack and boat many years ago when he spent time in this area. Not much has changed in this small quaint Annapolis valley village over the years. We were hoping to grab a soft ice cream cone at the local ice cream shop but unfortunately it was closed today. Instead, we continued on our driving tour over to Middleton and then back into Kingston where we did manage to find some soft ice cream cones before stopping to pick up some strawberries and blueberries at a local fruit stand for dessert tonight.
Chris’s dad has an MRI scheduled in Kentville on Monday morning so we are going to delay our return to Lake Echo until he gets back home.
