Thursday 8th September 2011………a WHALE of a day!!

Karen, Rob and I had a lovely gourmet breakfast and watched the rain drops disappear and Karen left to do her weekly visit with old folks in a home in Digby and I am sure she brought bright hours to the residents.  Rob and I piled into Ramona and went to Digby Neck.
