When Sandy comes we're always looking for new places to explore. Since I'd never been to Graves Island on the south shore, so we headed there. In Summer it's a very busy campground.
On this particular day we had the entire island to ourselves.
And it was just a short drive down the road to Chester where our favourite TV show "Haven" used to be filmed. This huge house was featured in one episode.
This one wasn't.
One day we took the dogs for a walk at Shubie.
On Friday, after choir, I took her to see our new public library.
It's a stunningly imaginative and beautiful building. It's designed to look like stacked books.
The fifth floor hangs out over the street and affords a lovely view of the city from the Citadel to the harbour.

Inside the building is bright and airy.
From outside the windows appear to be covered in leaf patterns. Up close you realize that the "leaves" are formed by letters.
The purpose of the "leaves" is to stop bird strikes against the windows and also to create shade by regulating the internal temperature of the building.
Definitely worth a visit.
She'll back me up.
If she knows what's good for her.
