Sydney and I are eating dinner in our own home, after some unpacking and much petting of our cat. We had a wonderful visit with Sydney’s parents (yeah, and you too, Nelson), and now we’re back home to a rainy Ithaca that encourages some sleeping and some reading.
That’s just fine by me, because my Harry Potter has arrived in the mail. 🙂 🙂 Sydney is a bit skeptical of the merits of the book series, but I am not inclined to hear much from him until he reads one or more of the books. Of course, finding time to tuck in another book or two is something we have difficulty with, so our lists of books for each to read for the other are growing . . .
This visit we took the ferry from Digby, Nova Scotia to Saint John, New Brunswick. After fitting our car in the bay we had three hours to wander on deck, sit and eat strawberries and chocolate (yes, now you see why we enjoy traveling so much), and listen to a museum guide give lectures about the marine life of the area. We also saw some whales! Apparently our visit coincided with their peak feeding time in the Bay of Fundy, so we were given a real treat.
