Last Friday, we took a trip to Lead Cove, the little outport community where my children grew up.
Time spent with fun-loving family…
…on a warm summer weekend, is high on my list of favourite things to do.
Around the bay, the pace slows down where time together is savoured and enjoyed.
(Our boy fell and skinned his knee after I took this one, but let’s not talk about that.)
Nico explores with Poppy, making the most of his freedom from the leash.
Our little girl spends a pensive moment beside the sea.
Perhaps they are watching the fishing boat near the horizon.
When we return to the summer-house, our chef checks on the roast he is smoking with maple chips.
Nico finds a shady spot.
Pulled pork sandwiches with all the fixin’s. Yum!
Nico is savouring every minute.
So nice to see the kids playing and spending quality time with their mom.
Later, we light a fire and serve up spider wieners.
What fire would be complete without s’mores? My first one in decades. 🙂

Jennifer, I enjoyed your beautiful and cozy post. My favorite picture was the one of your daughter with her children on the blanket. They grow up so fast…
Blessings ~ Wendy ❀
I love those pics also! And you are right about them growing fast. My granddaughter is maturing much too quickly for my liking.
Thanks for stopping by again, Wendy.
What a nice family day! The photos are lovely + I love Nico’s shady hiding spot. Smart pooch 🙂
Thanks. He is smart, and has the nicest personality I’ve ever witnessed in a dog. I’d adopt him from my daughter in a heartbeat.
Ocean, pulled pork, s’mores & family. These are a few of my favorite things! 🙂
Nope. It doesn’t get much better than that! I love the way you sum it up. 🙂
Nice to see your family. Of course, I love the dog.
I’m happy you dropped by. If memory serves, you have a golden doodle too. 🙂
Jennifer the perfect day, by the looks of those gorgeous photo’s.
Thank you, Kath. It was a memorable weekend for me, that’s for sure. x
A Ramones T-shirt!!! Sadly, the last one left us this month. Wonderful pictures, Jennifer, but the Ramones……!
I know. The problem with getting older is saying goodbye to those we love – including our musical loves. xo
Jennifer, sounds like a perfect day. I can almost smell the sea air in your photographs. There is nothing like family time, is there? ❤
It was as close to perfect (save for the tears from the knee-skinning) as I can imagine. Bonding with loved ones is what family means to me. ❤
