My mom, husband and I did one last drive this weekend. The sun finally came out and it got all nice and warm so we drove down the South Shore. This was our first stop, Chester Basin. Talk about beautiful and serene. I made sure to get a picture of us too and guess what?
The dream van of Bohemian Single Mom’s showed up in the picture! She has been wanting an orange Volkswagon van forever and I keep seeing them here and this one snuck itself into our photograph which rocks.
My Mom waiting for our seafood platters at the Mug and Anchor Pub in Mahone Bay. I was a good foodie by diving right into mine when it came but totally forgot to photograph it!
We figured we went as far as Mahone Bay, why not go a little farther and go to Lunenburg as well? Lunenburg is my favourite area of Nova Scotia. Way too far for this non-driver to live but man, what character!
The houses there are right out of my dreams and the town has a gourmet cooking supplies shop. It is so beautiful and my Mom loved it too.
We ended up at the family cottage (on my husband’s side) for a short visit but then these clouds rolled in and we knew it was time to go back home.
What a long trip! Mom did very well and was happy to have something to take pictures of other than my food, LOL. I will be getting back to my kitchen now and this week the food phobia I am going to tackle is kidneys for our steak and kidney pie if I can find them!
