If you haven't discovered Thomas Raddall Provincial Park, you are missing out. The staffer at the front gate summed it up well, "pretty much every trail leads to a beach". She was not kidding! A short stroll from the walk-in tent sites leads you to this pristine piece of paradise. Looks like some windsurfers have figured it out! The day use beach is gorgeous as well, we spotted piping plovers the last time we visited. The park closes for the season October 14th, don't delay. It's worth the drive to East Port L'Hebert!
This weekend is heavy on breakfasts (nothing wrong with that!) and light on everything else. That being said, the First South Anglican Church Fall Variety supper is happening this Sunday. Protip: skip lunch, expect at least a 30 minute wait and try erryding on the table! Here's a review from 2010 for an idea of what to expect. If you are lucky, you will spot a scene like this. Don't forget the corned beef and cabbage supper next Wednesday, so goood.... If you are in the Lahave => Broad Cove area, check out the Petite Palette 2013 group art show!

Just looking at my old little guy makes me tired. I found him in a random box in the attic at my mom's house. A quick search online found the playset. If you stumble across any Adventure People figures at a yard sale, pick 'em up! Sets include such exciting things as 'Wild Animal Safari', 'Super Speed Racer' and 'Daredevil Sports Van'. There are some nice pics of the figures and sets on this site.
Not much for grub this weekend. Sunday is the day to discover where grub comes from. It's Open Farm Day this Sunday!!!
Across the province, farms will be opening their doors to the public for demo's and tours. Check out their site for more info on the event and also instructions to download their Open Farm Day app.
If you are in the Bridgewater area, take a spin out to Kevin Veinotte's farm and learn about his Belted Galloway cattle and Katadhin sheep (they shed!). Flying Apron Cookery will be on site serving up beef soft tacos, what a treat!
Stay dry (yeah, right) and have a great weekend everyone!
Not sure if it's a Rose Bay/Kingsburg thang, but there are tons of gorgeous American Mountain Ash trees showing off their red berries right now. I have started to photograph my faves. Stay tuned for more in the days/weeks to come!
If this piques your interest in the trees around you, check out this handy guide to identifying trees of the Acadian Forest.
Holy smokes, what a weekend!!! It seems like every community has something on. Careful planning could allow for a weekend of meals and no dishes. ^_^
I'm hoping to check out the 30th Annual Heritage Blueberry Supper. I need some sauerkraut salad in my belly!
If you get a chance, take a drive to a beach and stick your toes in the water. The ocean temps this week have been cool, but pleasant (~18 C), hopefully this warm water trend continues into September, but you never know.....
Get out there and have a great weekend everyone!
