Today we decided to once again, go on a little adventure and drive down to Brier Island. It’s just 1 ½ hours away including 2 short ferry rides. It’s so close, yet so far from our day-to-day lives. It is on the tip of Nova Scotia and where the Atlantic and the Bay of Fundy meet.
The landscape is amazing and I hadn’t been back since my painting week there last September. How interesting it was to see the change in colour on the island – the straw shades of the fields that are now devoid of seed heads.
The ocean was breathtaking too. We watched seals bob in the water and seagulls fly.
We met up with friends there and had a picnic lunch together. The entire trip cost $2.50 in ferry fees plus gas for the car.
Larry and I got home and ate our supper around a bonfire outside and noticed the big dipper in a radically different place than it is in the summer time.
This weekend has been such a lovely gift to ourselves…2 visits to the ocean, lots of blue sky, sun and good friends.
