Post #3: Our weekend away!

So this past weekend, Chad and I, and Josh and Julia went on an adventure! Well, kind of. For Josh's Birthday Julia wanted to do something special so she arranged for a weekend at a cottage on the subinacide river with some Tidal bore rafting. She invited Chad and I to come along, I think the invite was mainly to split the cost...just kidding!! Anyway everything was planned and we were getting excited, then Julia called one day just to confirm, and they had lost our resvervation! So after calming Julia down...;) We started to look for somewhere else to go.

We found a place in Annapolis Royal at a cabin and then planned to do some golfing on Saturday. So we were all luck enough to get off work on friday a little early and head out. We arrived at the cabin at about 7:30sih. It wasn't too bad, a little rough around the edges, but it served it's purpose. We had a bon fire, roasted marshmallows, and the boys played in the fire. Then we went inside to enjoy a little satilite tv and some board games. Then we headed off to bed...I think I am still feeling the effects of that bed, it was pretty hard. Josh and Julia were on the pull out couch which wasn't any better than the bed. But we lived to tell about it.

In the morning we got up, watched some more TV, the boys went for a dip in the pool, and then we were on our way. We drove to Upper Clements park and went to the wildlife park. It was quick but we got some good pictures. Then we got some food and hung around the town before or tee off time at 4pm. We went looking for some new pants for Julia, I should have taken a picture of the only place around that sold anything remotely close to wearable clothing...it was kinda sad.
Anyway we had fun walking around the town and Fort Anne. Then we went golfing. Well that was an experience. I have golfed once before, so it was pretty new to me still. We only golfed the first 9 holes which I was a little grateful for. It was perfect weather though. It was warm but not too warm and a little overcast so that the sun wasn't in our eyes but no rain. I heard it rained in the city, so we were lucky!

Then we headed home, stopped for some food on the way and then into the city for about 10pm. It was a great weekend though, lots of laughs and fun! Thanks for inviting us along Julia!

Now for the good stuff...pictures:

This is the sign by the pool...the boys took the risk...it seemed pretty good though.

Apparently they have problems with glow sticks...who would have thought.

Good times! I think it's rather odd they have a glow stick issue. I mean did it happen often or just once? WEIRD! Looks like good times though!

Phil and Sonja Nelson said...

Glad you had a good time! Cabin beds are always rather sketchy...a little worrying about the glowsticks...strange. Sounds like it was a fun weekend though!
