In the North East corner of Martha’s Vineyard, an island off Massachusetts, USA, is the town of Oak Bluffs, a magical historical and cultural core of living Black American history.
I don’t live in this area of town, but my best friend does. She just moved here, so we went out and about for coffee, scones, and books.
There’s a place, along the shores of Lake Ontario, they call Prince Edward County . . .
Up here in Ottawa, if you go North you’ll stumble upon a quiet place in Old Chelsea that is a quiet piece of Heaven . . .
Driving through the outskirts of the city, along one of my absolutely favourite routes, I come across a national historic site I never even knew was there.
From the dirt road parking lot through a green oasis comes the Long Island Locks.
Time for the weekend chase of that inspiration muse.
. . . afternoon tea is sometimes all you need to replenish the well of inspiration . . .
There is a quiet little bookshop down in Ottawa.
