a happy camper

Sitting by a blazing wood stove in Petite Riviere after a day in the glorious red and gold woods by the water. I have tons of photos which I managed to download – to something called ImageBrowser Ex, from which I cannot move them. They’re supposed to be in Pictures, not in whatever it is. So until I go to a camera store or find someone who can help, I cannot show the beauty of my experiences here to you – except for these few, below, on my phone.

Right now I need to go and eat another superb dinner with a fantastic Nova Scotian wine, so I can’t write more. But know that this is a fine, fine place and I cannot wait to come back. More anon.

Frenchy’s, famous second hand clothing emporium. My kind of store.

Westcote Bell Pottery’s Vaughan and Jacqueline in LaHave, Nova Scotia – beautiful stuff. Check it out on-line: And below is, Tom and Peter’s beautiful gallery, full of joyful colour, skill and fun. So you can see these. But no leaves. No leaves!
