What was I going to prepare today for Dad's lunch? I asked myself around 10 A.M. this morning.
Called him and told him to get ready.....we were hitting the road today. Decided to go to the South Shore (of Nova Scotia) and eat at the 'Trellis'. He had never been to this little Cafe in the village of Hubbards. We have been here a few times and enjoyed it.
It would take about an hour to get there and we decided to not go through the city (Halifax) because roads were blocked off due to Queen Elizabeth's visit. So we took a longer route and completely circumnavigated Halifax.
I like the South Shore. We used to spend time in the summers there when I was really young. A completely different 'shore' than the Eastern Shore where we live.......more settled and less rugged than here.
Got to the 'Trellis'.
Dad made his way in.
Sophie wasn't too happy about being excluded.
Dad ordered his 'usual'.......seafood chowder. It was packed with all sorts of seafood....lobster, scallops, shrimp, haddock and of course the obligatory potato.
We all felt better after we stuffed ourselves.
And since we were on this 'shore', we thought we would drop in to see my sister, Jo. She and her partner live just a few kms from the Cafe.
Jo was home and was very pleased to see us.
We did a tour of her garden and took home some handmade pavers that she discarded. We could use them in our garden.
Dad stayed in the car.....too difficult to get about once he is settled.
Sophie loved all this, especially Jo! Sophie loves women. Doesn't get to spend that much time with them........go figure!
After the hysterics, Sophie settled and ran around and around the property. And all that grass! Heaven to her since we don't do grass.
And she found a little puddle to lay in......ah-h-h!
After a little chit-chat, we headed back to Cole Harbour (where Dad lives). Ignored the chaos again in Halifax and was home in no time.
Dad had a good time. That was the important thing.
