Parrsboro

View over Five Islands
We didn't realize how much we needed this vacation but it's been a beautiful week! We packed up the car and the cats and took off Sunday morning arriving in Parrsboro around 7:30 PM in a hard rain. I awoke Monday morning to the sound of pouring rain outside my window which meant..... sleep some more ;)  Needed that. We read all day while we listened to the rain and watched the tide come in. Bliss. 
Tuesday dawned clear and sunny and the weather has been great every day since. Yesterday, we drove from Parrsboro up through Pugwash and along the Northumberland shore to Pictou and back down through Truro and home again. 238 miles. As always, Don has to stop or turn around or back up so I can take yet, another picture, which he cheerfully does. He now brings his book with him to pass the time. I plan to paint tomorrow and post something by Saturday. 
We're heading home Sunday, relaxed and refreshed and ready to work.

I'm not going to comment on how phallic those rock formations are! But the photo makes me MISS NS! I hope you have a restful and restorative week, and Mr. Don, too. Recharge those batteries, you two have been through enough! Miss you...

Mary!
Great photo! Brings back many wonderful memories. Especially when my wife and I got stuck in the soupy mud while clamming with the locals. Enjoy!
