Jim knows I have a list of stuff I want to do before I die and he's definitely trying to help me cross stuff off the list. One day I said "I always wanted to go to Pictou Island.". Before I knew it we were getting up at 4:30 am to catch the 7 am ferry over to the island. And what a fabulous day we happened to choose. The sea was calm. The day was warm but not too warm and once it got light the sky was clear. We visited four beaches on the Island and never saw another person. We walked and explored the lanes, the cemetary, the shoreline. When we go hiking and camping, Jim is the chief packerupper and cook! I love this. Even if I am not really fond of instant noodles- I love it if someone else is responsible for the food and cooking. By five pm when we caught the ferry back to the mainland, my feet were so sore but it was definitely worth every bit of it. Next time we do a trip like this I will remember to wear my hiking boots not sneakers. It was a wonderful long day of exploring and relaxing.
