This picture was snapped by me using an iPhone. I snapped it just before I went for my morning walk. (Hear that, Kim?! I’m still walking!) The time was 6am Atlantic time. I love the early rise of the sun at the Shore.
You know the saying about when you ‘assume’, right? Well, feel free to assume the boys are having a wonderful time at the Shore. The boys shore do like it!
You may have heard of the Bay of Fundy, which is famous for the extreme tide change. Amherst Shore is not located along the shoreline of the Bay of Fundy, but the tides of the Northumberland Strait, where Amherst Shore is located, are still impressive. When this picture was taken, the tide was still heading out.
The Big White Cottage is what we call the cottage that once housed four families all at once. The cottage was built by my grandfather, and he passed it down to his four kids. Oh the stories this cottage could share, if the cottage could speak.
During the Summers at the shore, you’ll find the families gathered on the front deck. In fact, yesterday we enjoyed visiting on the deck and eating fresh clam chowder. Life is good.
Greetings from Amherst Shore, Nova Scotia. We arrived at the shore around 2pm on Saturday, and we enjoyed visiting with family until sunset. This is our place for the next several days. I am forever grateful to my Dad for buying the land before he died, and I am forever grateful to my Mom for building a cottage and letting us stay with her. Life is good, and we are thankful.
Last day on the road. Woo hoo!
Full disclosure: The shots used these past three days were taken in GA. Today, we leave Bangor, ME and reach Amherst Shore, Nova Scotia.
Another day with several hundred miles behind us and several more hundred miles ahead of us.
Let the road trip begin …
Joe and Charlie are always up for a nighttime expedition. I am grateful the expeditions take place at home, and they return in time for bed. Before I know it, they will venture out on their own. *sigh*
What’s the secret to life? Finding time to take a nap. At least, that’s what I gather from the men in my life.
