Wellington and Beyond

Bill and I drove west to Prince Edward County yesterday, soaking up the last of the summer sunshine for this season. Cooler weather and cold nights on the way later this week. On the spur of the moment, I turned the car down "Beach Drive" in pretty downtown Wellington, and lo and behold, there we were on the open lake with the surf pounding ashore. Like the ocean, but no saltwater!

On the far side of Wellington, we stopped at the Keint-He Winery where the view from the uplands overlooking the lake was outstanding.

That patch of blue behind the late-blooming echinacea is the lake, always present somewhere nearby in the County.

Now for the most exciting part of the day--Rosehaven Yarns in Picton is preparing all these empty shelves for the arrival of ...

Quince & Co. yarns, any day now. Rosehaven will be only the second shop in Canada to carry this beautiful line of wools (the other being in Montreal). It will be fantastic to have this resource so close at hand.
