October 2013 - Trails of Hats'n Hospitalitea

Archive for October, 2013

Good job I brought my French Gardener along on the trip because it has been a cold one today and poor ole girl fell out the camper yesterday and her hip is in need of some extra tlc, so he is so good about lift’n her in and out each time she got to use the green facilities.  I gave her a little extra charge this morning when the French Gardener went into the back room of the camper and I let her have a lick-a-the peanut butter off his spoon, she liked that.

It was an early one and I almost thought it had snowed over night with all the white stuff on the ground, when I got my coat on and had a closer look it was frost, pretty but not as nice as real snow. We drove first to Cape Enrage and found a rock beach.

Rock Beach

Seeing I didn’t find any seaglass I picked you some rocks off the beach, how do you like them?

Somewhere along the way we found fields of cranberries, red as ever.  I still think they are blueberry fields but who am I to disagree with the French Gardener, if he say they are cranberry fields I say how they going to flood them that high up on a hill,  you don’t want to know what he said next.

Ventured to Cape Enrage where you can repel down the side of the cliff to go beachcombing on the ocean floor. They also have zip lines that have been removed for the Winter and you can see the two towers.

image

I walked up to the top  of the one tower and received a message on my phone and listened to someone asking about scrapbookng product, so I answered it with another voice mail. Isn’t voice mail fabulous? I stood looking out across the water over this lighthouse and could hear ghost whispers.  When the French Gardener climbed to the top and asked me what I was doing I shushed him and said I was listening to ghost whispers.  He listened then ruined the moment reaching for my cell phone telling me I hadn’t shut it off and the message was still playing, “are you still there?”

What a sky

Walking back to the RV I spotted this lovely gem and if she wasn’t so big she might have been a hood ornament for the way back.  What a beauty and carved straight into the rock.

Onto St. Martins where we ventured to a number of places that I’d found on the internet but couldn’t find in real life.   I don’t know why I still think everything on the internet has to be real.  We did however find a few things we had set out to see and one of the sights was the Sea Caves that you will find on the Big Salmon River Road.

Sea Caves of St. Martins

While the French Gardener drove part of the day I wire wrapped Sea Glass.  When at Cape Enrage we met up with 6 people traveling to Prince Edward Island who were from the Netherlands and they were also on the same beach looking for Seaglass.  I then found out they were headed to the Island to visit this lady who makes seaglass jewellery on the Island.  I had to wonder, so I asked and she pointed to my necklace telling me they looked a lot like mine on line.  She seemed to be a little disappointed to find out I was standing in front of her and wouldn’t be in PEI to open the shop so I let her look through what I had made on the road and gave her a green wire wrapped pendant as a souvenir of PEI from New Brunswick.  So that is my special for the day, and so that makes 31 random acts of kindness towards my goal.

Happy Halloween,
Cindy

We arrived at Hopewell Rocks at high tide and this is a good thing because every other time we have been here the tide has been out.

The evening was with a flashlight and many steps down to the ocean floor. We then made supper of the red pepper soup i brought along, and a few games of backgammon and I was ready to turn in for the night.

The next morning was a picture perfect morning

The ocean floor has been dug out by  the rushing water

No wonder this is called natures flower pots. Looking closely you can see a bear standing on his hind legs.

image

Can you see his head better now?

image

Everywhere I looked the rocks reminded me. These look like elephant feet.

image

What about the face at the bottom of this rock, do you see it?

image

And this one, never mind.

image

We meet two lovely ladies who were on a mother daughter trip and the last time they had been to the rocks had been 40 years.  We stood and chatted a long time, long enough for these leaves to wither on the trees.

Moving along to Alma we are venturing to the park and come onto this driftwood gift shop with a  closed sign out front.  We know what a closed sign means to us so we go on up and ring the door bell.  Yup, they opened up their little shop and let us in and this is my next find.
