Between the knitting Olympics, life and last weekend, I have a ton of stuff to blog about. I might as well harvest while the hay wagon still has it's wheels on.
Last Saturday, was our “Cuba Trip”. Steve and I decided we couldn't get away for a true warm vacation between the expense and the guilt over carbon foot print but we really needed a weekend off. We have a '62 Volkswagon rag-top Beetle, yet it can't be driven in the winter. It hasn't any heat or sound insulation, making long trips a bit of a marital test. Instead, we rented a car with both a heater and a CD player. We drove to the Annapolis Valley and had coffee at Just Us Coffee Cafe in Grand Pre, traveled through the Gaspereau Valley
and stopped in at the Gaspereau Valley Fibre shop (my favourite store in the whole world),and had lunch in Port Williams at a great pub/brewery. They make outstanding sweet potato fries with a spicy mayo dip. The beer is pretty good also.
We drove along the top of the south mountain ridge to a few lookouts
and eventually home. We had canceled our dinner reservations because we both not feeling great in the morning, so we had French toast and bacon for dinner and watched the Olympics but snored off before the figure skating.
