... it is time to blog!
I finally made time to sit down, go through our holiday pictures
and create a sneak peek to what holiday stories, craft updates, and shop features you can expect here soon
so, are you ready for a quick view along the East Coast of Canada and the US?
let's get started...
after hearing stories and watching guide books, making this road-trip was a dream come true for both of us
if you are interested in the geographical part of it:
we drove North from Toronto, Ontario, through Quebec and New Brunswick to PEI, Prince Edward Island
from there we went South to Halifax in Nova Scotia, drove back to New Brunswick and further South
all the way along the Bay of Fundy, and by mini ferry to Dear Island to arrive at Campobello Island
from the island we went straight into Maine, US and drove South on highway 1 through New Hampshire
into Massachusetts to quickly visit Boston, and home through the state of New York, back to Toronto
are you still there....?
now let's see some pictures
in the province of New Brunswick, Canada, we got very close to Bambi and family
matching yarn is from a cute store in Maine, US
the main goal of our trip was to visit PEI, Prince Edward Island
and it was so well worth the trip
the red coast and sandy beaches, beautiful sunrise and sundown, and delicious seafood...
beautiful little villages with antique shops, lovely light houses everywhere
a nice breeze and the sun
what more could we ask for?
fishermen docs in every little harbor
craft boutiques on every street corner with beautiful quilts, yarns and their products
the yarn mill where we got a little tour
and of course, the house of Anne of Green Gables
and little treats in Charlottetown
we love PEI!
we drove off the island, on to the province of Nova Scotia
and to Halifax, the main city
we spent a rainy day indoors and enjoyed some quiet time in this cute town
on we went, driving South, to little and unknown Campobello Island
a tiny island, just off the boarder coast of Canada and the US
where we saw whales breaching, a shark jumping out of the water, seals relaxing and bold eagles flying
we visited the cottage of the Roosevelt family, where the decor and family story amazed me
on our way home we enjoyed the drive along highway 1 in Maine, all the way South along the coast line
there were more lovely antique and thrift shops then we and our wallet could handle, haha
we stopped in Boston for a super short lunch and cupcake visit
and decided to once go back there, to see more of this beautiful city and learn more about American history
after 15 days, more than 4000 kilometers, 5 campsites, 2 hotels, lots of laughter and about 1300 pictures
we came home relaxed, recharged, inspired and happy
isn't that what holiday is for?
now, what can you expect to find here soon?
a new addiction as shown; flower cushions, a finished baby girl blanket,
a baby boy winter blanket in the making, and in the shop: both crochet and knitting patterns!
I hope you are doing great, enjoyed a great Summer and made a good start in the 'new year'
at least, that is what September always feels like to me
let's catch up! I missed you all
