LOCATION: At our friends’ house in the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia
WEATHER: Very nice and sunny. High 75
While we are visiting our friends, we are sleeping in Joy, our Airstream, but are spending a lot of time with our friends in their house – sharing meals, chatting, reading.
After breakfast, Jenny and I took a vigorous walk on a trail that is a former railway track.
George and Tony made a trip to Canadian Tire to buy some fishing gear. Danger – danger! In an unsupervised moment, he bought a new skillet. He was in the doghouse for a bit. He now has a fishing license for Nova Scotia, and he and Tony hope to catch some big ones while we travel. I guess he plans to cook the fish in the new skillet!
Here is Tony getting his gear set up.
Tonight was my turn for dinner. I thought a white wine would pair better than a red one, but I could not find the bottle I thought we had (in our ‘wine cellar” inside of the trailer – aka the shower). So, I pulled out a bottle of champagne. Here is George opening it….
