Postcard #6: Into Every Vacation a Little Rain Must Fall



And so it has. Cold mist blows off the water, whipped by the wind to drive to the bone. A good day for wandering I'm and out of shops in scenic Lunenburg. The city really is charming in spite of the crooked photo.

Tim developed a cold the first day of our trip and I've been assiduous about washing, not sharing food, etc., but spending 24 hours each day together means the germs are always nearby. 


Today I succumbed. Scratchy throat. Achy limbs. Not much energy. After a stroll through town, a warming lunch of carrot ginger soup, and a little drive, we gave in and are sipping tea and relaxing in our cozy suite in the heritage house shown above.

Such a shame you both have a cold now Lorrie, wishing you better health soon to continue enjoying your trip. The house you're staying in looks nice, I like the colour.

I'm sorry the weather and the 'flu cold' has gotten to you both. That's not fun at all. Isn't Lunenburg beautiful? Did you get to see the Bluenose? I hope you are both on the mend soon so you can enjoy the rest of your trip.

Anneliese said...

I'm sorry you are not feeling well when there is so much to see. I love the sound of the carrot ginger soup and just relaxing with some tea. I hope that helps.

Oh I suppose that slowing down on cold, rainy days can be approached with a certain enthusiasm, but not with that cold! These are the scenes that remind me of a book I once tried to read. Feel better soon, you two.

Hope you are both feeling better and that the weather improves so you can enjoy your visit.

Oh, what a shame that you both are under the weather. I pray that you're soon on the mend and are feeling well enough to make some more vacation memories.

Be better soon, and oh my rain too on vacation...something just is not right with sick and rain and vacation. Keep smiling though~

podso said...

It looks like a cozy place to be sick but I hope you are feeling much better soon.

ann said...

Get better quickly. I am sure the is a lot more that you would like to.

Mary said...

Be well soon Lorrie - hopefully some sunshine will appear and that always helps.
We fly to the UK tomorrow and I'm hoping we don't catch any international 'bugs' on this trip - those darned planes always seem rife with germs, ugh!
Chin up and keep going - hugs, Mary

Hope that the sun shines and you are both feeling much better before too long. Hope Lunenburg puts on a sunny smile for you tomorrow !

Sorry you both don't feel well, but it's nice you are able to both rest, and not feel like the other person is missing out on vacation because you are sick!

It looks like a beautiful place to visit! Very charming.

Sorry about the rain...and the sore throat. I have such fond memories of Lunenburg...one of our favorite spots in NS.

What a charming town - and so sad that you have colds - not fun anytime.

Helsie said...

What a shame. Rest up, it's the only cure.
