What's on this weekend? More like what isn't on this weekend?!?

For starters, this weekend is the Apple Blossom Festival in the Valley.  There's a parade on Saturday, the 'infamous' 1/2 chicken dinner on Sunday (arrive before 2 pm, trust me) and all sorts of other activities.

'Down home', usual round up of breakfasts.  Broad Cove/Vogler's Cove is a busy spot this weekend, hosting a champagne brunch one day and a baked bean and ham supper the next day.

The Maitland Spring Tea on Saturday is always yummy (possibly the best orange pekoe tea you'll ever drink), well worth checking out.

Ox pulls, roast beef suppers AND it's going to be sunny!?  Soak it up folks, soak___it___up.
