Happy to be in Ottawa, miss you Nova Scotia

I’m showing you the flowers my dear friend Paula in Nova Scotia always
arranges in the school house in beautiful bouquets to greet us when we
arrive. As we drove along the highway singing tonight, and talking about past
trips in other years, we could feel the pull in our hearts of the feeling of
the long voyage we normally take out east,  but also the absolute delight of the
road.  It may not be a good thing, but in COVID there is almost nowhere
safer to be than your car if you want to see something different.  And 
many people, like us do want to see something different.

The road today did not disappoint — amazing clouds, gorgeous light on
the trees. And when we arrived at the hotel we had a sweet note, cookies,
and chocolates!  It’s lovely being in a place we know.  The staff are so nice,
and all is well back home, so we can go for a walk by the canal, and enjoy 
our surroundings.  

If you’re reading this, we miss you Paula. We miss your laugh, and seeing
you, and Bruce, and the boys.  And we miss the beautiful flowers.  One way,
or another we’ll see you next year!
