I have Internet!
The Brigantine Inn in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia,
has provided me with a way to communicate
that Sophie Doodle is as real as real can be!
She bounded into my life yesterday with licks and love,
and I gave her all the scritches, hugs, belly rubs, and pats
that many of you requested!

the Guys Dubbed "Weeser"
But as wonderful as Sophie Doodle is,
nothing was better than to give Ron a great big hug
after way, way too many years.
And meeting Jim was every bit as special.
He's a great hugger too.
Ron, Jim, and I
We had so much fun laughing and talking
that I forgot to take pictures
of their gorgeous wooded garden,
their warm and welcoming home,
and the incredible seafood chowder and bumble berry crisp
that Jim made for the best lunch I can remember
in a very long time.
It was just so awesome to be with them!
But I collected my photographic wits
after we jumped in the car and headed for
MacDonald Hill and Lawrencetown Beach.
Let me share some of those with you!
