It was a truly lovely day here in Nova Scotia. As I sat on the deck eating my lunch with Pancakes and Keith, Keith mentioned that soon we needed to go take a day trip to the beach. I thought about it for about half a second and said to him "Let's go now!" and he readily agreed. There was no time like the present and both of us were kind of in between projects. I know better than to wait for when I am doing 'nothing' because that may be years on the horizon.
We packed up a few things and within minutes we were on the road in his little Miata with the top down driving along the coast.
What a perfect day!
We decided to go to a place called Sandy Cove which is located across St. Mary's Bay on what is referred to as "Digby Neck". It meant heading north almost to Digby and then coming back south again. It had been a couple of years since we were there and it was one of my favorite local beaches. It was always quiet and clean and it feels like you have your own private beach.
We had some errands to do in Digby as well, so it wasn't as if we needed a reason to head in that direction. We wound up spending a couple of hours on a nearly deserted cove right on the ocean. It was the perfect way to start the weekend.
I will let the photos speak for themselves . .
Sometimes it is good to get away. No phones. No computers. Just you and the sun. With the busy weekend approaching, it was good to go while we could.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend as well. Remember to take some time to yourself to appreciate the beauty around you. You will be amazed how refreshing it can be! :)
