New Tote, and Vacation Pics. from Nova Scotia

Above is a shot of my new fall tote.  I just love working with these colors, and I'm especially smitten with the dark teal (I prefer the term "midnight teal") for the background.  One of those wonderful finds when looking for a completely different color.

And now for assorted shots of my trip to Nova Scotia.
Tide pooling on the beach....
Knitting on the ferry...
Gilbert's Lighthouse where I bought a cute hooked mat done by someone in the NS guild.
Coastline with lighthouse (actually, this was taken in New Brunswick).
Shed with fish netting....digging those colors!
Glorious lupine everywhere!!!!!
Lobster traps abound, as does the tasty treat....
 Hastily made new friends who invited us up to watch the sunset over the ocean (there was wine involved.... yippee... great new friends!).

That's all the NS shots I'll display for now.  I don't want you to feel the need to make a hasty retreat with too many "How I spent my summer vacation" photos.  I'll post some next time of the many colorful boats and homes that grace the coastline.

Oh, Dulcy, those COLORS!!! The ones in that tote are everything warm and wonderful about Autumn scattered beautifully under crisp turquoise skies. You've created a stunning tote. Absolutely inspiring. And your photos....I could just drink those in as well. I especially love the row of bright chairs. I'd love to sip wine in all of them:) -Jennifer

What a summer vacation you had. I loved the pictures & look forward to seeing more. Nova Scotia is one of the places I really want to visit. Your new purse is wonderful -- almost as pretty as mine. Jan

Dulcy I think I just live through your eyes. I love love these pictures. What a beautiful place to
visit. I can't imagine living in such a place. God really spent some time with Nova Scotia when he created the beauty of it.
Don't let me miss your other pictures.
No wonder I have not gotten my Blogazine story you have been so wonderfully busy.
Love the tote and the colors are like Jennifer described in her comment but I never could of used such a beautiful description.
Those chairs are prefect for wine tasting and watching a sunset.
Now I have a new dream vacation to think about
