This morning was my first real venture out to our local Farmers & Traders Market in Annapolis Royal in over a year.
We arrived shortly after 8 a.m. before it got too crowded.
Thanks to my trusty assistant...no, not Mr. Painted Quilt...although he is never too far from my side when we are out and about...but Ralph, who provides the confidence and ability, enabling me to leave the house.
We did manage to purchase some fresh, local strawberries, two different varieties of lettuce, some green onions and a dozen free range brown eggs. I got everything washed and put away before I remembered to take a picture.
After leaving the market, we went into Digby to pick up a few staples at the supermarket.
En route, we drove past the harbor...
where the scallop and lobster fishing fleet dock.
When we returned home, I took a few more photos around the outside of our house.
This view of the side of the house shows the workshop on the left and the red barn in the background.
And of course Ollie is never too far away.
Fresh strawberry and rhubarb pie is on the agenda for this afternoon so I'd better get busy, huh?
