Marianne made masks with Forest and Asa..and cut out pumpkins with them too..she was a great “hands on ”  Hallowe’en helper, including her part in cooking for the dinner for 11..(.Jen and family, Drea and family, Marianne, us,) and for answering the trick and treaters at the door with great enthusiasm!


Noah going out for his first Hallowe’en adventure in Wolfville, along with his hip parents. What a great tradition: dress up, eat candy, go wild. Lovely seeing the sisters and their families tricking and treating together.

The Scrabble group, (those who could) came to Wolfville, took me out to lunch, then elsewhere for dessert, then to our rental for champagne! Now if only they’d do this every 3 weeks! I plan to get to them on the eastern shore as well, and we’ll actually play Scrabble, but I dearly loved our conversations today. Friends = personal conversations. Love it.

Frank carrying still more things into our rental..a lovely Cape style home from the front..


..but the back yard is two floors below..the property sits on a hill. Those are century old apple trees, and in the distance, on a clear day, you can see the Minas Basin, and Blomidon… wonderful.


Our favourite room is the sunroom, with windows on three sides. I love seeing my geraniums looking so comfortable there, after the car ride they had. Our other plants have found spots within the home, and that is what is has quickly become, home, since it will be that for us for a quarter of a year!

The sun sets on our life and life style on the East Coast..the Marine Coast, of Nova Scotia. After more than 12 years here, with great friends, fabulous neighbours, a rich life in nature, we have decided to downsize. You know the word. Two people closer to 70 than not, decide to get a 2 bedroom bungalow while they can still handle the stress and extreme hassle of moving! We will be living, as of tomorrow, in Wolfville, on the Minas Basin…where we will be able to walk to everything we need, and hopefully be able to make new friends and still keep and cherish the ones who have made life so wonderful out “east”. “The times they are a’ changin’.”
