Did two loads of laundry and hung 'em on the line.
Re-arranged two kitchen cupboards.
Made a batch of chilli and another of mac and cheese.
Then I sat down and pondered what to do next. I felt bored.
So I slid the smaller kayak into the back of my car -- it only protrudes a foot or so -- and drove 2 km to DeSaid Lake for a bit of a paddle.
It's a small lake, maybe a kilometre long at the most. Because it's shallow, weedy and warm, I was glad I was in a kayak without a rudder or I would have been dragging tons of weeds with me as I circled the lake.
Can you tell that I felt much better after my paddle ?
I'd heard that there was some filming going on down at the Fisherman's Cove, so I drove there to check it out.
How do you this this warning sign ? "Throughout the UNIVERSE"! Guess that covers everything.
A boat ferry, complete with U.S. flag was docked at our unassuming boat launch site which now sported a sign reading "Friday Harbor".
Various locations in Nova Scotia are standing in for Washington state where the Hallmark movie, "Christmas with Holly", is set.
I imagined that they chose us as our usual cooler, wet weather would nicely replicate December in Washington. Don't know what they're making of the endless sunshine and scorching heat. After seeing the woolen lumberjack shirts and heavy coats hanging outside the wardrobe truck, I was glad I hadn't signed on as an "extra" in the filming of this production. :-)
After realizing I couldn't get close enough to the action as I wanted, I drove home, off-loaded the kayak and took Wendy and Trey for a walk along the sea shore.
All-in-all, a pretty good day.
