Day 55 - 24th February 2013 - The Hawk Beach and Drowned Forest

Wow I slept in 2 mornings in a row, and last night I went to bed super early - feels kind of nice though. Temperature is -4.1 and we are suppose to get a bit of snow today, not a lot just 2-5cm. Larry has an online course to do so I guess I better set him up and give him a hand with that today. He's not in to computers so this should be fun. I've got some data entry to do for a friend so I need to start that since it needs to be done in a couple of days. Sounds like part of our day is filled. Roast turkey for supper with all the fixin's, can't wait. That means creative leftovers coming up this week.
Saturday was a great day! Larry put some wood in the basement then we took off about 11:30 and hit the road for Cape Sable Island. Drove down to the Hawk Beach and walked through the drowned forest [well sort of - it was low tide]. It was chilly, there were a couple of other people on the beach but they were far ahead of us so we were pretty well on our  own. That's the advantage of beaches in the winter time. Stopped in Barrington and shopped at both groceries stores - a treat for sure, then were home bound. No date day would be complete without a meal out - nothing fancy, just fish burgers and taters at Thompson's in Clyde River but they were good and did the trick. We were both hungry after all that fresh air and sunshine.
The Cape Sable Lighthouse. According to the Discover Shelburne County website it is the tallest in Nova Scotia at 101 feet tall.

 Nothing exotic - just seagulls in the bird department.
 Lots of waves and pretty skies.

 More of the Drowned forest. From Discover Shelburne County - 
"1500 year old drowned forest; a broad area of fossil tree stumps still rooted in the original soil.  Exposed at low tide"

 Almost forgot a flock of geese flew over head.

Time to drink my coffee. Enjoy your day!
