A month in pictures - I went to the Remembrance day service here in Mahone Bay at the Cenotaph, before it started a C130 Hercules flew overhead, I thought so much of my Dad that day, he was a Pathfinder in the RAF and flew Lancaster Bombers. My daughter wrote very eloquently about him here
Soon after we went for our annual trip to New England, we went as far as Boston, then worked our way back to Portland for a few days with our very good friend Jo Diggs. Such a treat to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary with special friends at Top of the East in Portland, we wandered the old port and had some wonderful meals as always! On our way north we stayed in Belfast, Maine and stopped in at Fiddlehead Artisan Supply, a wonderful and art supply store, they always have such great things for our artistic grandkids. While there I could help but notice this young girl dancing about the store in this wonderful coat. I couldn't resist talking to her, Magnolia, and her Mom. What a delightful pair! Magnolia had just the personality to wear such a coat. She loved showing it off and talking about how she and her Mom made it from recycled, felted wool sweaters. I'll never forget her! Wish we had longer to stay and chat but the store was about to close.
When we got back we jumped in with both feet to get ready for our town's annual Father Christmas Festival. For the first time my local Guild was asked to hang our Christmas quilts in the Welcome Centre. This was the 10th anniversary of the Festival, an event the whole town gets in on with wandering choristers, horse drawn wagon rides, Christmas house tours, a gourmet market and Father Christmas himself wandering around town.
