Spring, Friends & Day Trips

Margaretsville 32 years later.

Last Sunday gave us a beautiful spring day and we decided to do an afternoon adventure after church. We contacted our friends, the Thomsons, who willingly came along for a great afternoon. I remembered when Andrew and I were dating that we had gone to a quaint little village called Margaretsville, and have been requesting a trip back, if only for nostalgia's sake. It's funny, but I recall it being much more romantic 30+ years ago!! We took a geo-cache along to do and it proved to be more difficult than the website said - Judy was the master and discovered it.

We then made our way down to the beach and a couple of waterfalls, breathing in the wonderful salt air. What a relaxing, enjoyable way to spend the afternoon with good friends. Time slipped away quickly, but we decided to take a little detour to Morden, another beautiful spot on the shore with a clear view of Isle of Haute out in the bay. This is also home to the French Cross and after a few photo ops, we headed back to the Valley. We are so very blessed to be within such a short distance to the tranquility and beauty of Nova Scotia's beaches.

A stunning waterfall right on the beach.

Interesting angle!

Looking forward to the next 30 years together!
