We’ve been in Lunenburg for almost three weeks now. There have been a lot of cute dogs, numerous bike rides and beach visits, a birthday, a little work, a celebratory lobster roll, lots of coffee, creepy fog, blue sky days, sunsets, and christmas trees on the run.
See? Cute dogs. This is actually former-MP Garth Turner’s dog, lolling on the dock. As Garth Turner is not as cute as his dog, he got cropped from the picture.
It was super hot. I honestly wish that I could have just fallen in the water here because biking home was like 3 hours of derby in the barn kind of sweaty.
We went on another (longer) bike ride a couple of days later though to LaHave, which was really pretty. It also boasted a ferry ride, an amazing bakery, and… on the third floor of the bakery a skate bowl. Seriously! You could hear the skateboarders all through the bakery!
We totally stopped at the bakery twice. Once on the way there and once, 30 minutes later, on the way back.
We met up with my colleagues Bridget and Tony in Kingsburg and took the dogs for a walk on Hirtles Beach. I completely nerded out there, because apparently it’s a living beach that turns entirely from sand to rocks each winter and then back in the summer. So cool.
who sailed around the world three times,
then possibly became a book hoarder in Lunenburg.
In any case, between our adventures, much work was done. We had a celebration when I finally sent in the copyedited proofs of the book that I wrote with Laura Murray and Tina Piper.
