Saturday Snapshot [1] – Where I am

Today, as I’m sitting here willing the Saturday afternoon away, I started looking into blogs for interesting memes or posts. I stumbled upon Alyce’s At Home With Books blog and saw her meme called, Saturday Snapshot. I’m not a photographer by a long shot but I do love taking pictures. Lately, a lot of the pictures I’ve taken are book related. The beauty about Alyce’s weekly feature is that you are given the liberty to post any pictures that you want provided that it’s clean and family-oriented.

So every weekend, we spend our Fridays and Saturdays at our cabin. It’s an hour away from the city – quiet, serene and you can count in one hand how many cars would pass by during the two days that we’re there. The place is called Arnes, Manitoba, in an area called Pebbled Beach. 
The drive last night was a little busy. It’s the first legitimate warm weekend we’ll ever have so everyone  seemed to have trekked out of the city to get away. My husband drove. He’s the worst passenger-driver ever so I never drive when he’s in the car. 🙂
We’re somewhere here. I’d rather not say where exactly. 
The sun was about to set when we got here last night. Just enough time for a quick walk. 
And the agenda when we’re here, is veg, relax, read and listen to some music.

Enjoy your weekend!

  • Sounds like a nice weekend escape. My DH isn't a good passenger either. I think it is a 'male' thing. 🙂

  • Sounds like a lovely way to spend the weekend.

  • Enjoyed your blog♫ Saturday Snapshot has become my favorite meme, welcome to the group. Thanks for commenting on my blog (Bear With Me)

  • Gorgeous pictures, Joy. My husband is the worst passenger as well, so I never drive with him. He makes me too nervous. This is fine with me because I just use the time to read anyhow, lol! 🙂

  • I'm jealous of your relaxing weekend, but I have today to relax a bit. I hate riding with my husband, so I always try to drive when we go any where. Here's Mine

  • This has such a wonderful peaceful sound to it, Joy. I love getting away somewhere…secreted away with a good book and perhaps a cup of tea. Perfect.

  • Ah, love. <3 Thank you for sharing Joy 🙂 So jealous of your cabin.. it sounds like you guys have an amazing time there each weekend 🙂

    It's wonderful you can get away on certain weekends.

  • How fun! My husband is the same way about driving – he only lets me drive when he's physically incapable due to injuries. 🙂 I have to say that I don't mind though, less driving is fine by me. I hope the weekend is completely relaxing for you!

  • Thanks, jasprit. And yes, open invite to you. 😉

  • This sounds like the perfect weekend away Joy, could I maybe come with you next weekend? And I love your photos, so pretty! And yay for Kings of Leon! I love that band! 🙂

  • It's actually not so bad now. 😉 Thanks for visiting. 🙂

  • Yes, still. But it's on a meltdown now. It's 17 C outside. Thanks for visiting!

  • Oh yes. I have to get up and flip it all the time. Sometimes, I get my husband to do it for me. 😉 Thanks for visiting!

  • What a wonderful weekend tradition, it sounds so restful, and the photos are great- even if it looks very cold.

  • Sounds like a lovely way to spend the weekend. Do you still have snow on the ground?

  • I love that you're using an old record player. The sound is so much richer…but you have to flip sides so often!!
    Enjoy your weekend.
