Post 1181 - A Whirlwind Trip

We are back in the city after a quick trip to the cottage today.

The weather has been so good lately, so clement, so warm, that we just had to check the place out.  We are glad we did.  As nice as it must have been in Halifax, it is that much nicer up there.  It was upwards of 20 degrees at the cottage today. 

We had lunch in the town of Pictou today and afterward wandered around the town before returning to the cottage for a nap and then to clean the place up a bit.   We drove back to the city around suppertime. 

Driving 4+ hours i one day is not my idea of a good time, unless in between I can spend some quality cottage time.  We are both hoping to be able to keep the place going until the end of November this year, just like we did last year.  We hope to open the cottage formally next weekend for another record-breaking year.  And, high speed internet is now an option in that part of the province, so, you know, it may become our true home away from home.

I can hardly wait.

You make me very envious !!!!!!
In contrast to your picture, the news this evening showed Oka Beach( a shot distance outside Montreal) with children building sand castles and young people playing beach volleyball. Very typical of a day of 25 get to the beach one had to walk over a snowbank !!!!!
