Went for a Sunday Drive with my boys... poked our way along the South Shore past Bridgewater and came back thru Voglers Cove and Lahave. Seemed strange to do it on such a sunny day in the truck, but it was lovely.
We stopped at a little museum on the Lahave Islands out past Cresent Beach. It is in an old church perched on the side of the bank overlooking the harbour. Lot's of neat artifacts in there but I was most taken with this old quilt:
I was glad to see that it had a place in the museums collection but sad that it was folded and wrapped in plastic (a little archival preservation research might do the curators good!) and more, it was hanging up so high it was hard to really see it or get a good photo of it. Each little square has a hand embroidered name and the amount they donated to the fundraiser. Everything from 10 cents to a dollar!
Mr. PurpleBoots tells me we've been down this road before, but I can't recall all of it. I remember parts of it...I do know we picniced on that beach the day after we married so I guess he's right; he doesn't forget things like I do.
Salt air, delicious bakery & cafe, antiques shops, galleries & studios, curvy road, good pavement, little traffic, beautiful scenery....pretty much the perfect road for purple boots and pigtails. If I ever get brave enough to get back on the Fatboy and feel the wind in my face this will be high on my list of must-ride-routes. I have to admit that I actually felt my riders spirit lift a little yesterday, so there is hope for me yet.
