What’s everyone been getting up to this weekend?
Yesterday I went on a day trip to Montville with some friends. It’s about an hour drive from where I live and it’s up in the hinterland and it’s generally just a nice place to be. There is an ace fudge shop there called fudgyboombahs. There is also an ace chocolate shop. And candy shop. There is also a clock shop which is good to poke around in. They play upbeat polka music and sell lots of cuckoo clocks and grandfather clocks and lots of cowbells (more cowbell!). It’s very touristy.
We also poked about in art galleries and looked at art we couldn’t afford. And then there was the walking around and taking in the scenery. No bushwalking though, as none of us was wearing appropriate footwear. We stuck to the main street and easily accessible lookout points. Although one lookout seemed to be the main hang for a swarm of dragonflies. That was a bit freaky. I took my Diana Mini and I used up a whole roll of film. Film flies when you’re having fun.
The day did have it’s downers though. Like encountering the aftermath of car crash on the drive home. We drove past just as the fire trucks and ambulances were arriving. It didn’t look like anybody was injured, though. Thank goodness. But it was still awful. I hate witnessing things like that. It just gives you the worst feeling.
But other than that, it was a good day out.
I was too pooped to go out Saturday night. I’m such a grandma. Now I have to figure out something to do today.
Hope you’re all having an ace weekend.
Apparently “ace” is my word du jour.
