Here are the children waiting to be told to start their swimming The beach at Port Hood is amazing .
Nila on the right with her best friend Hayley crossing the finish line .
Nila and Elise with their medals for taking part , they each were given the tee shirts to wear as well . They were a little tired and ate a huge breakfast at a near by cafe .
A photo of the wharf and across the water is Port Hood Island , I would love to go visit there someday .
The town of Mabou had a parade as well as other events on Saturday so of course who doesn't love parade . Nila was on one of the floats .
What parade would be complete without horses , love to see the horses . The brown horses you can just barely see were used for rides for the children later on and Elise sure loved that , she had several rides , a girl of my own heart ;-)
I zoomed as much as my small camera would allow to capture this magnificent eagle perched high on a tree . Bill tried to get closer but it started to make some warning calls and finally decided he best leave his perch .
A new project I have started , this is a kit I bought many years ago but never got around to making , there are more borders to add plus some applique . The pattern is by Thimbleberries and is called Garden Vine .That last border I added just barely shows up against the floor .
A pear pincushion I just finished , this was a free pattern from Kaaren at the Painted Quilt . Here is the link to her pdf Thanks so much Kaaren , it was sure fun to stitch , I used an old scarf for the body of the pear , worked wonderfully :-) Oh and while you are stopping by to visit Kaaren take note of the mystery quilt she is just starting . I will be joining in , will you , oh come on I need some buddies to sew along with .
My blogging may be sporadic as I am trying to enjoy the summer while it lasts therefore my visits to other blogs may not be as often as I would like either . Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a terrific day .
