Today we headed To the Lighthouse! -not with Virginia Wolf though. We took a trip into Louisbourg to walk the Lighthouse Trail. It was a beautiful day for it. The swells were very rough and the waves crashed onto the rocks with a roar. The girl really enjoyed that part. We spent hours walking around the lighthouse and the walking trail into the wilderness there. We made sure we picked up a walking stick just in case we encountered coyotes (we didn't, thankfully) and took lots of photos.
Reading wise, I've finished listening to the audio version of This Book is Overdue! I've also started reading Her Mother's Daughter by Lesley Crewe and The Rebecca Notebooks and Other Memories by Daphne du Maurier. The latter contains several short stories that Daphne wrote in her youth. Some are just meh but others are quite good. My book club is about to start Dracula and since I read it just last year, I thought I'd try some other books for the discussion. I picked up a graphic version (a children's version) and Dracula the Undead and a Bram Stoker bio.
I continue to find new and interesting things to listen to on my ipod besides books yet still book related.
