That’s it. The weekend is over and, with it, two solid months of busy weekends. What a nice way to end it, though. We grabbed a Thursday evening flight with Porter Airlines – which now flies direct to Moncton offering reasonable rates and free booze – and spent a few days visiting my folks. No expectations, and nothing scheduled – just a bit of well-deserved downtime.
That’s not to say we did nothing. We went to a couple of group fitness classes at the newly opened Goodlife locations. We went out for a nice dinner where Dad, unfortunately, got soaked with a lapful of beer. We groused around the Dieppe farmer’s market where we picked up some lamb shanks from a local farmer and some fresh local organic produce before heading home to make dinner. And we got out to the local brew-pub (the Pump House) where we had fantastic micro brew with our friends G & V – always great to see old friends after a long absence.
There were a couple more highlights, and we’ll address those in later posts, but while it was a great visit, it’s also nice to know that we have no other major travel plans between now and the end of the year. Let the winter cocooning begin!
