Road Trip

Last week it was nice and sunny for 5 consecutive days so on Thursday Dave and I took the day off work and headed out on a road trip up Annapolis Valley way. Did I say 5 consecutive days ? yes I did but Thursday it rained most of the day and it's been sunny most of the days since. We headed out the door at 9 a.m.

We had to make a pit stop...

... car needed oil.

We stopped at a couple of Frenchy's. The best find for me was this beautiful mouth-blown vase in my favorite color, of course.

We were gone all day, driving, stopping and shopping in the rain but still... we had fun. We ate ''yummy'' fast-food which was a treat for me.

We got home at 6 p.m. The rain had stopped by then and we could see a few breaks in the clouds.

This was the scene at 7:30 p.m.

Oh well, we got rained upon for our road trip but our day ended in the comfort of our home with this beautiful sun set.

what fun to go on adventures and then to come back again to the comfort and safely of our little dens.

Thanks ladies. The vase set me back .50 cents.

There may have been run, but it didn't dampen your spirits for a great shopping expedition which resulted in that beautiful vase. And what a gorgeous sunset at the end of your day!
