So glad you dropped by the Blessed Hearth..
This morning Terry and I decided quite spontaneously that we would take a wee trip down to St. Martins to check on the old cottage and the shop..
I made up a few buns and some coffee and away we went..
We drove about 2 hours to get there..
Past frozen over mountain lake and snow filled forests and rivers..
Then there is the wee rose colored shop..
The House of Henry..
And then here is the old cottage..
Sitting and waiting for warmer days and the sounds of laughter and running feet up and down the stairs..
We went in and checked it over and I was happy to see the old elm tree still standing.. (the one that is on my mind during windy weather) smile..
Before we left we drove down through the village and checked out the harbour and caves..
Notice the huge icicles...
There are two covered bridges by the harbour and this picture with the red house is one of the most photographed pics taken in St. Martins..
Enjoyed our lunch...
So wished the tide had of been in but perhaps next time, eh?
On the way back home we passed rivers and a church that I remember as a child..
When we were on our way to my Grams and I saw the church with eyes, nose and mouth (grin) then I knew we were almost there...
We stopped and I visited a Thrift shop and found the best find..
I will show you next time.. OK?
All in all we had a lovely day..
Terry picked up some mussels at the supermarket and I made this delicious recipe for our supper..
MEDITERRANEAN MUSSEL PASTA
The recipe can be found HERE...
My fave chef from Prince Edward Island..
I used basil instead of oregano...
But it is delicious...
We only get mussels occasionally but this is a great way to have them...
Hope you enjoyed the little Winter field trip from Eastern Canada...
Take care dear hearts...
