That’s where I felt like I was this weekend. Driftwood Heaven. I’ll explain.
We went away for a family reunion to the beautiful golf resort in Dundee, Cape Breton Island, NS (which I found out today is the #1 rated island in mainland North America, CAN and US, and #3 in the world, pretty cool!). Dundee is only about three hours away from us here in Halifax, but is a first visit for both hubby and I even though most all his paternal family is from the island. Here’s the 9th hole of the course, just so you get an idea where we were:
Pretty amazing, eh?! ← That’s my Canadian coming out.
I could embarrass myself and show you a few family pictures from the weekend, but becuase I feel I would need permission from other members in the family (trust me, there are ZERO
sober nice pictures of anyone) I won’t do it (Note to family members: I will kill you if something gets posted anywhere on the www. sans my permission…mmmkay?).
Here’s a quick one of my sister-in-law and I in all our wet-rainy-day beauty showing off our weekend t-shirts and matching celtic knots. I have a tattoo of two triskles (knots) intertwined on my foot symbolizing everlasting love and my sissy in law has a necklace from her (Northern)Irish boyfriend. If I don’t explain this we just look stupid:See? Explanation required…wow. Killer eyeballs.
Now since I am honoring the wishes of family members I will explain my post title, Driftwood Heaven.
Dundee is located on the Bras d’Or Lake which is a huge body of salt water smack in the middle of Cape Breton Island. It’s huge and salty. Salty water=wicked driftwood. I wanted to find a way to take this big boy home…hubby said no. I was thinking coffee table base?
To be fair it’s much larger in person. Like almost as tall as me large. Here are a few other shots from the beach, mostly of driftwood, which I LOVE. I think its the randomness of patterns that get created that I’m so drawn to:
