I am always up for an adventure and I had hoped to live in North West River at some point - having fallen in love with it when I went up there a few years ago with SP. SP has an uncle that I adore who is the best story teller and we'll be happy to hang out with Ruby in the home and hear her good old stories too. Here's a photo of the front yard at the house we'll be living in. It is on the beach at Lake Melville.
The sad part is leaving family and friends. I have three grandchildren that live in Nova Scotia that I'm going to miss like the Dickens. I have the best friends anybody could ever hope to have - lovely supportive types and all of them had given me their good wishes on this venture but it is a bitter-sweet thing to say goodbye for months on end. SP leaves mid-August in the truck with some (but not much) of our worldly possessions. I will fly with Bella (who we think came from Labrador to fetch us!) in mid-October. I have stuff to wrap up. We may have someone to house-sit - I'll be back for a visit mid-winter and we'll both be back in the summer when the school is on holidays. We hope he gets more than one year but we'll see and we're going to start building next summer!
And here is the house mid-winter!
I will keep up both my blogs - this one for the writerly part of my adventure and Living the So-Called Simple Life for the rest of it.
