Come along and I'll show you more of what we got up to.
We TRIED to play double solitaire but the cats had other plans.
After visiting the abandoned hotel, we came across the Grey Gull. I know it doesn't look like much, but to a fan of the TV show "Haven", it's pretty darn cool. Haven which is based on a story by Stephen King, takes place in the town of Haven, Maine. In reality, it's filmed in Nova Scotia around Lunenburg, Mahone Bay, Hubbards and Chester.
The Grey Gull features prominently in the series, as a restaurant/bar owned by one of the main characters. While the show is on hiatus, the building is boarded up.
But when filming resumes next month, the Grey Gull will return to its TV glory.
Amy and Mickie had walked the Polly's Cove trail and told me that I MUST see it. Sandy's visit provided just the opportunity. I had heard that there were ruins along the cove path. Not exotic long-ago ruins, but the foundation of an unfinished home. An abandoned dream.
The scenery was staggeringly beautiful. How can something be so bleak, and so beautiful, at the same time ?
The rocky terrain is covered with glacial eratics -- massive boulders left behind by retreating glaciers.
"Let's just walk up to those rocks there", we'd say. We'd get there, only to see some other wonderful rocks, "just over there" ...
We had a wonderful time, walking, drinking in the scenery, and sharing each other's company.

Knowing that this is just one many trails in the area, sends shivers of excitement up my spine. I can't wait to explore them all.
