Chocolate rocks and smelly fish harbours...

Today I travelled to St. Catharines for work. It was cold this morning, so I was not prepared for the muggy weather that greeted us once we got to the harbour front in between sessions. Susan and I walked along the board walk, and found a cute little candy shop with more than enough signs about warning children of rotting their teeth. It was a rickety old place that smelled of more must and mould than your grandmother's attic. Trust me, my allergies flared up the moment we walked inside. But to taste the chocolate pebble rocks was all worth it. Pure chocolate with that candy crust on the outside was absolute delight!

We continued our walk down the boardwalk, and were greeted with yachts of all size, not to mention the nasty fish smell that rose up to greet our nostrils as we passed by. I comfortably confided in Susan that I would not make a very good fisherman's wife, which, unregrettably, I will never be :D

Also, I almost managed to successfully start AND finish an entire Christian fiction book my sister recommended to me. Ok, I only made it to halfway. Still.... It's called "Let them Eat Cake", by Sandra Byrd, and her book is witty enough to captivate my attention and down to earth enough to allow me to empathize with the main character. She is, in fact, in the same stage of life as I am, and therefore I am able to relate exceptionally well. I am enjoying this book immensely, and look forward to the other two that are waiting patiently side by side in my stack of books that I have yet to read this summer. Thanks Mel for raving on about them...they are definitely worth every breath you expelled to encourage my inspection!

Love,
Ashleigh

Too bad I already got the best catch ;)

Yay, my hometown...been a while though since being in Port Dalhousie. I would apologize for the fishy smell, but that isn't my fault lol.
