Hello, friends. Early this week, I got a last-minute email from our neighbour, Bridget, saying she was heading up to a local beach for the day. Did we want to come along?
a perfect sunny day
+ 2 children
+ cleaning and groceries on the agenda
+ the last week of summer holidays.
OF COURSE we were coming along.
I asked for directions. She said, “Well, you go north on Montreal St but it’s hard to explain. There are no signs, or anything. We’ll stop by your house and we can drive up together.” And so we did: cars loaded with children (ours and other people’s), picnics, swimsuits, fishing rods, and, in my case, a potty (not for me, personally!). We were three vehicles, four adults and nine children.
This is what we found:
And we stopped for ice cream on the way home. It was the best possible way to spend the last Monday of summer holidays.
Also, this is totally unrelated but look at this amazing dragonfly laying eggs on one of our tomato plants!
How about you, friends? What are you up to, in these last precious days of August?
