Taa-daa! I've got a new blog series up my sleeve:
The Road Trip Chronicles
Dan and I plan to maximize our days off together this summer and fill our time with road trips and fun. No lalligagging and wishing and hoping - the summer of 2012 is going to be the best yet! Since it's Victoria Day weekend here in Canada, we were both off of work on Monday - and a paid day off, to boot! We packed our car up, slipped on some shades, and grabbed a map at the tourist bureau and were off.
We decided to take a scenic route that was brand new to us. It's so fun to explore your own province through tourists' eyes! Unfortunately, there weren't any tourist traps along the way, but we had a blast. After about five hours in the car, we landed at a beautiful beach that is the province's surfer destination. We got out and stretched our legs for a good long break.

We enjoyed the chilly wind after being cooped up under the heat of the sun in the car. Dan and I had fun watching the surfers, windsurfers, and beach bums enjoy one of the nicest days of the year. Everyone and their dogs (literally!) were there, soaking up the natural beauty of Lawrencetown.
I found an adorable heart shaped rock that may or may not have come home with me.
We hiked up to the top of the crest and watched the windsurfers for a while. The view is absolutely incredible! I love living in Nova Scotia... we're surrounded by so much natural beauty.
It was the perfect day for spending time outdoors! The wind was strong enough to keep the bugs at bay.
We found a little rock tower that someone had left behind. It's no inukshuk, but it did the trick :)
After we left the beach, we had supper at a barbecue joint and headed for home. No shopping, quality time only this trip. I can't wait to spend a summer full of days like yesterday! It's going to be one memorable summer!
Question: How about you? How did you spend your extra weekend day? Do share!
