Soon, Rob, the boys, and I will load up a car and head North for Amherst Shore, Nova Scotia. Amherst Shore is a place my Mom’s family has visited annually for over 100 years. Seriously.
As a child spending my summers at Amherst Shore, I remember eating meals on brightly colored plates and in brightly colored bowls. When I moved out on my own and had to invest in my own plates, bowls, etc., I bought a small set of the same stuff we used at the Shore. And when Rob and I were married, I seized the opportunity to register for more of the colorful collection.
Every time I use our plates, bowls, etc., I am taken back to the summers of my youth. Long live Fiesta-ware, and long live Amherst Shore!
