Mama / daughter day
All summer Millie has been asking me for a day for just me and her. Somehow (I feel terrible!), the summer has completely passed without finding one single day to fulfill this request. The summer has just flown by. Anyway, it was finally time and it was a beautiful day.
The first stop was for a good ice cream at a little corner store where I used to go often as kids. A great start to the day! Then we were off to the beach. One thing that is actually very little known about Nova Scotia (we always picture that lobster dinner), is that there are so many beautiful beaches here that you can never visit them all.
I decided on Lawerencetown beach since it was such a hot day (27deg). Lawerencetown is about a 15 min drive from dartmouth and is one of the coldest beaches in Nova Scotia. Yet – on a hot day – this is a nice thing. It also has the best waves for surfing, and I thought it would be fun to watch the surfers from the beach (maybe pick up some pointers for Mexico?). It also has beautiful views from the surrounding cliffs.
After the beach, we hiked up one of the little hills and had a picnic overlooking what felt like the whole-world. There were 2 paragliders taking off from the same cliff and we had fun watching them glide up and down.
Why didn’t we do this sooner? It was a perfect day.
