Now that I have caught your attention ~
Look who we found on the rocks last week in need of some massive hugs
and licks from yours truly!

It's our dear, dear friend Louise from
This Coloradan/Nova Scotian dog lover is game for pretty much anything,
so we spent 2 days showing her a few of our favourite places.
(Psst: this is a bayberry hedge along one of the cliffs)

 Everywhere we went the humans kept hugging.
Here's Ron and Louise 
after fishcakes and beans, salad, gingerbread, coffee
and laughing at a french cafe nearby.

Re-discovering the paragliders near MacDonald House on the hill
turned out to be exceptional because the wind was super warm
and there were so many sails flitting about the skies.

 Once again warm hugs coming from Jim this time
after the french cafe meal.

Another unbelievably scrumptious meal was had at 
a restaurant near Peggy's Cove ~

see what I mean
fishcakes again
portobello burger
deep fried fish and chips
(hungry yet?)

so after desserts
to keep up the hugging tradition
Louise and Jim
act up 
while returning to the car
Humans please!

A trek out onto the barrens was necessary.
You know what?
I can't remember if this was before or after that 
mouth watering meal.
But as you can see we all needed some fresh air 
laughter again!

We found this beautiful lake to throw Mr. Orangie.
Louise has the honours of course.

Another black Lab joined in because this was too much fun to pass up.

Across the road on Queensland Beach
Louise and Ron saw this cool Doodle
with the dyed blue hair.
Whattaya think?
Should I?

Do you think we all had a supreme time
laughing and hugging?

Seriously, there so much to be said about 50 year friendships
which began many years ago
with a huge space in between of living our own lives,
social media intervenes
et voila 
back together again.
Ain't it all good!

I do believe I did a good thing today Charlie Brown
am so happy for those three humans.
Life is good
so Good!

August has slipped into my world.

 High on the hill the warm breezes play with the grasses and flowers ~

as I amble through them seeking out anything to sniff

also watching that I don't get in the way of these flying humans
high over head ~

across the waters on that spit of land a couple discover their own nirvana

realizing that a morning dew 
only makes the remainder of the day
that much more magical

So come along with yours truly
perhaps this will give you a bit of nirvana.
Namaste, my friends!
