a sunshiney weekend

friday morning i got up nice and early to go to peggy's cove with girls from my esl class - nayoung, seohyun, and bailey - and joey, who did the driving honours in her adorable new blue car. it was a beautiful day - clear and bright, and almost hot, even at 830 am. we were the first ones at the cove, so we had it all to ourselves for most of our visit - it was great! we ran around, took pics, and admired the ocean ... it was definitely showing off :)
then we dashed back to the 'fax so bailey could work at 1030.

can't visit peggy's without a picture of the lighthouse.

joey picked my nose. ew!

the girls had a blast getting cool pics (with the traditional post-office ... er, lighthouse).

i just liked this window.

the sky was blue, the view was lovely ...

killing time while seohyun ran to the car for fresh batteries ... this turned out to be my favorite pic!

today was beautiful again, so i took ashlin, marcella, and laurie to the dingle. we picnicked, played, ate ice cream, and explored the little beach. the girls found three starfish and saw a limo full of wedding people.
ashlin and marcella didn't want to wade into the water to pick up a starfish that was a little ways out, so laurie volunteered. when she came out of the water, her eyes were huge and she stuck her arms out and shivered. "it's freezing!" she said. "come snuggle with me," i told her. as she made her way toward me, she looked at me, pouting a little, and said (as serious as can be) "i think i'm sea-sick."
quite the landlubber :D

when we were on the way home, marcella suddenly worried that the cat would eat the starfish. ashlin brushed her fears aside, saying "we've got them in mcdonald's cups. she'll never suspect that!"

you never know ... maple is an astonishingly clever cat.

the dingle

the weather was perfect today - sunny and hot, with enough breeze to make everything bubbly and happy :). joey and i packed a picnic lunch and went to the dingle for an idyllic hour. we talked and read and looked at the gorgeous houses across the northwest arm.

there's something so summery about a picnic blanket and kicked-off shoes!

the water was silky, and kept being rippled by merry little breezes :)
we sat down near a cluster of starry flowers. it felt deliciously springy and fresh. i'm certainly not looking forward to a summer cooped up inside the office. three cheers for becoming a teacher and enjoying a summer vacation in the not-too-distant future!!

the eggplant

following the trend of giving houses names (think ingleside, if you read l.m. montgomery), patrick and i decided to christen our apartment The Eggplant.
we're working on a gorgeous purple and gold sign for our front door - eggplanty indeed!
i'm happy today - it's a beautiful sunny day, the temperature is soaring to 28 degrees, and i'm heading out with my sister for a picnic! i'll try to take a picture or two to post.
hope your day is spectacular too :).
