berry

Sunday, September 16, 2012








 As much as I love living in the city, sometimes I just need to escape and find wide open spaces. On Friday husband and I did just that, with a spontaneous road trip to the south coast. 

We made it all the way to Berry, where we enjoyed a delicious lunch of veggie pizza (for me) and grilled fish (for him) at the Berry Sourdough Cafe, before wandering around the main street. My favourite stop was definitely Lisa Madigan's The Store, which I found thanks to Jodi's recent post. Me oh my, it is magnificent. I wanted to buy everything, but I settled on a sea urchin candle and a cute chalkboard (I wanted the heart shaped chalkboard but husband convinced me to buy the circle...).

When the sun started to set, we headed for the beach where husband decided that a swim was in order. It was so, so cold and 5 pm but he dove right in. I stayed warm, obviously, and then we got back in the car and drove home in the dark. Refreshed.
