My last visitor in Nova Scotia this past summer was my friend Mary who lives in Ontario. We first met in the mid 1970s in Lahr when both our husbands were posted to Germany. Three years later we were all posted to Winnipeg, Manitoba, thus we have been friends a long time.
This picture of Mary was taken in Annapolis Royal where we spent some time meandering along the street and checking out the shops along the way.
The souvenier store, the Crooked Floor and the Fort Anne Cafe
Mary and I swam, ate, drank some wine and beer and did a lot of talking.
(The recipe for Buletten, the sauce and the cucumber salad I gave in my blog post of March 19, 2011; the recipe for red cabbage can be found in the post "Advent" on December 16, 2010.)
The raccoons come around towards evening and thus far have done no damage. Hans feeds them; I do not.
