Lighthouses, beachcombing & campfires

Eddie and I went last week to Weymouth to get some drinking water from the spring there as the water at my parent’s house though technically safe to drink, bathe and cook with smells and tastes gross so they refill water at the old Jones bottling plant there that has a spring outside that is free for everyone to use and a frequent place for people to get water in droughts.

On the way back we stopped quickly at Gilbert’s Cove Lighthouse as I wanted a picture of the lighthouse and also to check out the beach there.

I’ve heard it is a really good place to get some beach/sea glass. It was cold and windy so we didn’t do much more than glance at the beach but it looks promising. We plan to go back sometime in the next few weeks.

Today we did go beachcombing at Sandy Cove Beach on Digby Neck.  I’ve been wanting to go but it’s been cold and windy for weeks. Today was beautiful though and at 8 pm it’s still like 18°C out, it was 22 earlier. It was only supposed to go to 14°C so I’m not complaining.


These are our finds from today. There is about 25 pieces of beach glass (some are really small). Some white rocks I love, though I realized after washing them some are not as white as I thought. A few smaller rocks Eddie liked and 3 bigger rocks I think might be good to paint on as they have a very flat top. 3 small pieces of pottery or china and a piece of wood and a periwinkle shell that I found as well. I am starting a collection. I want to do some arts and crafts with them. I want to try some beach (sea) glass pictures.

When we got back Eddie started a small fire in our firepit we bought a few weeks ago and we roasted a few hot dogs and then a few marshmallows for supper. One of my favourite things to do.

This is Eddie’s idea of roasting marshmallows and I’ll admit most likely everyone’s idea. Me though I like to evenly tan them a golden brown and peel them off the stick layer by layer by layer tanning each layer as I go. I didn’t get a picture of that because I was the one taking the pictures

All of this we did after Eddie got off work at 3 pm. So I would call that a very productive evening. And now it’s time to play some Sims 4. I bought a few game packs for it the other day since I just had the base game. I got Outdoor Retreat because I love camping and I got the bowling one too. Next, I want to get Seasons as it was my favourite Sims 3 expansion pack. I’m a bit behind on Sims 4 because I hadn’t been playing it.
