and cats too!
There is a lot of stuff happening along the South Shore this weekend. Things that we wanted to try and fit “everything ” in. We’ve been so busy working at our lawn and garden project and Saturday is a prime day for getting lots of work done on that. We were hoping to get sods for a our front lawn to lay today but looks like it’s gonna be Tuesday now so that freed up a bit of time.
So what’s happenin’
Yard Sales, and LOTS of them!!
One huge one, the Annual Shaid Tree Animal Shelter Yard Sale!
We have never gone to it. We’ve donated stuff before, but this year I wanted to go. It’s held at the Exhibition Grounds in Bridgewater and for weeks prior many volunteers and organizers give their time to receive donations and sort and categorize and price items for sale. It’s a 2 day event with a cost of $2 per person to go to one of the BIGGEST YARD SALES in the area. There’s clothes and books and Christmas things and bedding and dishes and antiques and toys and furniture and sports equipment and plants…you name it, it’s there! And cheap!!! There’s really something for everyone. And the really great thing…the proceeds go to the Shaid Animal Shelter to use as they care for dogs and cats and try to find good homes for them.
LOTS and LOTS of people there today, enjoying a beautiful Saturday morning along the South Shore!
The right place at the right time. I TOTALLY forgot!!!
Forgot that the Tall Ship, Picton Castle was scheduled to sail in to her home port of Lunenburg this afternoon. But then David and I were so busy with yard work despite the crazy weather in the Maritimes today. Snow in Moncton, Snow in New Germany. Cold and wind and rain and sun and hail. REPEAT … in Bridgewater. I just forgot.
Our son, James worked today at the Old Fish Factory in Lunenburg ( yes, it’s two jobs again this summer) and after he got off work, he and a friend went to a perfect location to watch her sail in… Town of Lunenburg and wharf in the background and just beautiful color…ONLY problem he didn’t have his camera, just his phone.
The Barque Picton Castle is a three-masted tall ship best known for her international voyages to exotic, remote island ports around the world, deep ocean sailing passages and award-winning seamanship training program. It would be an amazing experience and opportunity to be on board and part of this program. The ship is currently on the homeward bound leg of her sixth world circumnavigation voyage. The Picton Castle will be in the Port Of Lunenburg for about a week before beginning the Summer 2015 voyage, an East Coast Canada and US tour to Virginia.
If you’re in Lunenburg this week stop by the waterfront and have a look…she’s a beauty!
WELCOME Home Picton Castle!
PS~ Sunday afternoon we stopped down to the Port Of Lunenburg so we could get a few pics.
