Family Friday

We had the boys with us over the weekend. It had been a few weeks since they’d been here. They were busy with summer activities and vacations. After dinner we walked down to Fort Sewell to check out the iconic Marblehead tree that had fallen during the storm we had on Wednesday evening.

On Saturday we went to see the old fashioned fireman’s muster at Salem Willows. My son-in-law pumps the Newbury handgun. It’s such a fun family thing to do! Verne is still a bit too young (and short) to pump but he is practicing for when he gets bigger.

Abigail has her Muster t-shirt on and she’s practicing her ability to pump the handtub as well. I think she has a few more years to wait…

There are beautiful little gardens all over town! Here are som Michaelmas daisies growing in a tiny little patch of dirt between an old house and the sidewalk. It’s so pretty. I just love walking in this town. It’s been one of my favourite changes about moving here.

My sil has been housesitting for a friend who lives on the water. Joey got to go on his first paddle board adventure over the weekend. He really enjoyed it but I think he likes a little more action.

In the evening we often walk up to Fort Sewell. It’s pleasant to watch the sailboats coming into harbour after a day on the water.
