OMG, OMG, OMG ! (insert squeal of delight here)



This is what I posted on my FaceBook status* update on Sunday:


"OMG, OMG, OMG, OMG, OMG.

Out with my friends Amy and Mickie today.  Mickie said she needed to run into Tim Hortons to get a gift certificate. got inside, Mickie was looking at a map and giving someone directions.  Mickie asked if I could help give the lady directions to the Bay of Fundy.  I wandered over.  The lady said it was her friend at the table who needed to be shown the map.  I turned.  The friend at the table pushes the hood back on her coat ... and ... it's my friend SANDY !   Sandy from Ontario !   Sandy from Ontario is standing there in front of me !  I must have stood there with my hand over my mouth for a full 30 seconds.    

OMG, Sandy is here !   She and her friend Gail left Ontario Saturday at 7 pm, arriving in Halifax around 3 pm on Sunday.  They'd driven straight through !

May I repeat OMG, OMG, OMG ! "

Question:  What do you do when a friend drives 1,700 km. to surprise you with a visit ?

Answer:   You show her the best time you can.

You take her over to the Bay of Fundy,
to see the Gypsum cliffs at Cheverie.




Then you continue on to the wonderful red cliffs of Burncoat Head.





Then you take her for a sun-drenched walk along the trails of Shubie dog park.


Today we went clamming with her friend Gail, on Three Fathom Harbour at low tide. 



Two more days before she has to head back.

Wonder what we should do next ?

* Please forgive my over-use of exclamation marks but ...     OMG Sandy is here !

  2. She was surprising you with a visit? Oh, that's why she was there! How totally cool. I didn't realize (from reading your FB status) that she was actually on her way to visit you. Love how life can be so serendipitous!

  6. Isn't it amazing that your friend Mickie just happened to walk into that particular coffee shop and was stopped by a woman needing directions... What an amazing almost unbelievable coincidence.
    Looks as if you had a wonderful few days with no rain!

    So what did you do on the last two rainy days?

  7. Why does blogger make it so hard to leave a comment? I used to sign in using my name and WP account info but it's not there today...

    1. Rosie, I changed my settings as I was getting such a high volume of spam. I gather that's not a problem for WordPress users. I'm really starting to not like Blogger.
