Today we were not needed by our Daughter, and since it was lovely weather, we decided to go to Shelburne, Nova Scotia, about 40 minutes from where we are stationed at the RV Park. Today and tomorrow, the Tall Ships were there and we were able to get on board and see what these ships are like inside. They are all quite big and one of them was suited with an all girl crew. One of the girls was only 14 years old but was very enthusiastic about her job. All crews were very friendly and very helpful if someone had questions for them. DH and I were very impressed with all of it.
Then on the way home, we stopped at an ice cream shop for a treat. I asked for a small and when it came, it was two big scoops. Boy, was I full!
The RV Park where we are is owned by a wonderful couple and have been so great to us. Of course, they are aware of why our stay has been so long and after last week, we found out that our Daughter and her Family are going to need us for a while longer. DH has been helping the owner of the park and in return, they are giving us our spot free of charge. Then on Friday, they learned about our coming 46th wedding anniversary on July 30th, and they arrived with a gift certificate for a high-end restaurant around here. We are so impressed with the people in Nova Scotia, all of them are very friendly and very helpful. Also, our friends at home have been really great in helping with taking care of our property. Thank God for all these wonderful people.
Our Grandson is growing so fast and that is the silver lining in all of this. I still think he is the most gorgeous boy with a big smile and beautiful blue eyes. Of course, I'm not prejudice much!!!
Take care everyone and have a great week.
