Todays journey took us to the Valley with our first stop in Berwick to visit my brother Skye and my grampy.
I am sorry Sierra and Aayla did not get to meet you both, but believe me when I say that my life and many others are enriched for having known you, for having loved you, and for having being loved by you. You are missed...
"Whatever else, be happy; life is beautiful"
After saying goodbye we went to visit a dear friend Ethel. Ethel lived beside us in Torbrook Mines where I spent most of my childhood and she was like a grandmother to me and my brothers growing up...but especially to me. I missed seeing her on my last visit to NS so I was so happy to be able to see her this trip. Ethel celebrated her 89th birthday this past March and still looks as young as ever!

We were hoping to drive back to mom's by cutting across NS to Bridgewater and then head along the other coast to Lunenburg but since it was so late we decided to do that another day and took a quick drive to Scots Bay instead. Not too many pictures here though...I was too busy collecting agates :)
