Nova Scotia Road Trip! - 2002

103 She had, so we went back out there for a lovely visit with a very delightful and interesting couple. In addition, they had a most engaging and charming kitten named Tucker (named for a Darcy Tucker who is a Maple Leaf player). He is such a kittenish critter that he loved to play with us. He had wonderful eyes and such wonderful markings — tabby with white accents in interesting and cute places. We enjoyed talking with Ray and Imogene who recalled lots of history of the area and their lives there. Imogene ’ s father had been the Cape Forchu lighthouse keeper while she was growing up and then from 1963-66, Ray had been lighthouse keeper there too. They will be celebrating their 55 wedding anniversary on 10-25 this year. We found them delightful company and only left when we realized how tired Ray (he is 85) was getting and how late in the afternoon it was! It should be noted that this couple were Edgar and Betty ’ s best friends when they lived in Yarmouth and that Edgar still visits with them regularly when he returns to Novy. When we finally got back to the cottage about 4:30 PM, we found Genevieve and her grandson, Ian, visiting with Sharon. Apparently they had been here about two hours and kept Sharon plenty of company. When they left about half an hour after we arrived, we fixed our supper of No Name Beef Stew and it was delicious and satisfying. Now we are repacking our purchases in preparation for our departure tomorrow — on the CAT, we hope. Maybe little Tucker was a good omen?
