Winding Down with Naomi

Hmm...what is this all about, really? It's me jotting down ideas about things that go on in my life, and some occassional pictures of things I've seen and done.

Photos of the Island

I've been enjoying getting out and about as I can, (as per previous blogs!) and have usually had my camera with me. (Sound familiar to anyone?)

Here are some fun wildlife shots:

Here you get some pretty sunsets:

Here you get some lighthouses:

Oh I've been everywhere!

I'm reminded of a song...And I know that it's probably not the original, but it's the only one I know!

I've been everywhere folks, that there is to go in Grey, folks... (finish me!!)

Just because I was touring around yesterday after getting off early from work. I hopped in my car and followed the blue herons. (Mostly because of the beautiful blue skies, that's what made me want to roam!)

I drove through Hamilton and near Toronto, Cavendish, New Glasgow, Kensington, Hunter River.... (Not necessarily in that order, mind you!)

I stopped in Cavendish to find that the tourist season is over, so I couldn't go into as many places as I wanted to. That's ok, because this way I kept going, touring around, finding some great little "adventures" and was able to walk the Cavendish Beach/Dunes. Very nice. Around sunset too- very, very pretty! Hopefully some of my photos look good on computer, as I haven't uploaded them from the camera yet!

We've had a bit of rain, but it didn't affect my touring. I should get going and check on my laundry. Hugs to all!

Smalltown Canada

Over the past little while I’ve spent a lot of time in my car. The drives have often been wet (it’s been a wet summer), but they often find me traveling through some beautiful small towns.

This weekend I’ve driven through a bunch of small towns. Some of them take your breath away, others have cute little shops that I wished I had the time to stop and poke around a bit.

Some of the small towns have cute names, others, just odd names. I’ve been noting some of them, and they include: Crapaud, Travellers Rest, St Louis du Ha! Ha!, Winsloe (sounds like a good name for a pet!), Oldham, Londonderry and Pleasant Valley. What other fun names of places have you been in or seen lately?

I love the small town feel you get out here in the Maritimes, though it’s not absolutely everywhere. I was reminded of a quality of small towns that I like today- an honour system for fresh fruits/veggies edit- note by honour system I mean that they had a box for you to put the correct cash in when you picked up however many items you wanted. Today potatoes- a while back strawberries. These were found in different towns, different seasons, but both gave a very fresh and enjoyable change from the everyday. How else might potatoes and strawberries be related???

This weekend I was also able to (in small town fashion) bump into some classmates from Ottawa- while in Halifax. And not just once!! We bumped into them at the market and then later at a part of the harbourfront I'd not yet visited. Good to see them!
