two if by sea

It's September, and still fully summer. The past 2 weeks the daytime temps have been hovering between 28 and 32 degrees (celsius). My love of this month is pouring out of me, literally; drop by abundantly sweaty drop. Make is stop for the love of (profanity here)!!

Although I am very much looking forward to returning to Toronto and then exploring Manitoulin Island for a few days at the beginning of October, I'm a bit sad I won't be making it to the east coast of Canada for a visit. My friend Jen who lives in Saint John, spent the summer exploring the beaches in her home province of New Brunswick and then explored the south shore of Nova Scotia; filling her instagram feed with enticing and beautiful vistas. It was lovely to see and made me miss it so.

So I did the only thing I could do to deal with the wanderlust that I am unable to satiate at this time.

I painted a picture of the east coast from my trip there in June of 2012.

Jay (my husband) and my goal is to make a move to the east coast of Canada. We've no concrete plans yet, but we dream and hope and snoop around on the interwebs looking for jobs, houses, communities, parks.....gushing and oooohing over the loveliness of the maritime provinces. He's looked into schools and placements for EMTs and I've looked into the goings on in the art and food scenes. We are planning for an adventure in the near future, hopefully. I'll keep you posted. For now, it's just thoughts and musings and wishings and paintings.

And sweating. So much sweating so far this month. Second summer in September.
