After Labor Day, working so hard, I needed to get away. Labor day in York Beach is a big weekend for restaurant servers. It’s loud, crazy busy and riddled with people from out of town. It was a rough weekend for us. I needed a getaway.

I found that hiking by myself was the key to freedom of self. So I booked a hotel and off I went to North Conway. I left right after my lunch shift and drove up. Beautiful drive. I haven’t been there since I was a kid. I did a little research before before going there specifically. I found a spot where I could mine for crystals. I was sold and very excited to go play in the mountains and dirt.

North Conway, straight ahead

I stayed at a hotel with a hot tub, because when travelling there is nothing like relaxing in a hot tub. I went out to eat and went back to the hotel where I just kicked back and relaxed. The next morning I ate breakfast and saw that it was raining lightly. That wasn’t going to stop me from my journey. I packed up my car and headed to the mountain.

I was driving down a very long dirt road and enjoyed being surrounded by all the trees. When I arrive, I was the only person there. So grateful.

I packed up my gear and headed in. It was quiet with the exception of the sound of my footsteps crackling over the forest floor. I kept a look out for anything out of the ordinary. It was about a mile or so in when I came upon the mining site.

You could see where people were mining. So I sat there on the ground for a bit and meditated. Then I asked my guides where I would find smokey quartz. I heard under the tree. Well I am surrounded by trees, so I stood up and felt the energy. I found a tree and carefully dug around the base. I did find a nice little piece of smokey quartz. I gently placed the dirt back around the base and thanked the tree for allowing me to do that.

I continued to move around the site and look for more beautiful minerals. I have no idea how long I was out there for but I sat down again and meditated before leaving and The way it was, the rain subsided and the sun came through the trees and landed directly on me. It was magical.

I packed up my gear and thanked the land once again and headed back to my car.

When I made it back to my car, I wanted to change my clothes before driving back 2 hours to get home. As I was covered in dirt. I begin to change and then I hear something. I quickly finish changing and I see a mini van coming down the road. It was a family with 3 kids.

I was so beyond grateful that my journey through the woods was solo with no one around. Universe knew that I needed that time alone. And now it was time for others to enjoy.

Overall, it was a very relaxing and fun getaway. I truly needed that. Quiet time away from people. I was at peace and ready to go back to work lighter, emotionally and spiritually.

PEI, Here we come

Day 3 of our adventurous journey

We had decided to take our time leaving St. Andrews. Sleep was important and was was our morning routines. Eventually we packed up our belongings and left the room, headed to down to eat breakfast before we depart. We took one last looky lou around the room and saw it was snowing outside…booooo! I remember one other time it snowed on my birthday, so uncool mother nature.

Anyways, we meandered down to the restaurant and ordered the breakfast sandwich, if you happen to go there, make sure you try that at least one time…so delicious!

We both looked at each other and realized that the bridge to PEI had a toll, I told Krysta, I have a $1. She looked at me with her quirky smile and said yeah, probably more than that. So I googled it. I just about choked on m y water when I read $47 and change. I certainly did not exchange any money so hoping they take CC we left. We later found out that they do take CC, however not until you leave PEI.

We start our 4 plus hour journey to Prince Edward Island. Today, the 25th is my actual birthday and as we drove on, the rain kept on and the snow kept appearing. I don’t mind the snow but with snow comes cold weather and when you are on the water its windy so I was not 100% enjoying the drive. Especially because I was driving (my new car).

We passed through many small areas of nothing and then we would come up and more nothing. We did drive through a major city, if that’s what you would like to call it. It was cute and quaint and at this time I cannot recall the name of the town. But they did have a Costco! hahaha.

Needless to say we make it to the bridge. It really was beautiful and wicked long, I’m pretty sure it’s about 8 miles. You look out and nothing but ocean. Gorgeous. However I was driving so I had to be cautious and keep my eyes on the road.

We continue to drive for what feels like forever by now. We finally make it to our Bed n Breakfast spot. WOW, gorgeous and centered basically downtown. It is called “Fairholm INN”.

We pull in and unload after checking in. Our room was so cute and quaint, there were 7 rooms I believe 6 were upstairs and the dining area was equipped with a fireplace and lounging and about 5 two top tables for breakfast all set with plates and menus for the next mornings breakfast.

I stepped outside to grab a couple more things out of the car and ran into the owner, Brook. I was staring at my phone while walking to my car and I hear a voice, he’s friendly! I look down and this huge beautiful dog came running up to me, so excited to play I pet him as he jumps around me in excitement. Brook let me in on some good eats around the area, I let him know we did not want to be in the car any longer. So he suggested several places around the block.

Krysta and I landed at Terra Rouge, small menu, but there was something for the both of us. So we stayed. At this point I was achingly hungry, I was sweating even though it was raining because I needed something in my belly. I asked the lovely lady if they had any bread, because at this point I couldn’t even focus on the menu. She brought out some delicious bread and butter.

For those of you who don’t know me…I LOVE BUTTER!

I slathered the bread with the weird looking butter and starting eating. I just about fell to the floor wondering what on earth this woman just gave me, it was the best tasting butter I had ever eaten! She came back and told me it was miso butter and they make it in house. My mind was blown. I needed more of this, like all the time. Even though I don’t really eat alot of bread at all, I would figure out a way to consume the amount of butter I purchased from them.

After dinner we wandered back to the inn and decided to rest for the remainder of the evening. Two long days of driving we were tired. The beds we had were amazing comfortable. I always bring my own pillow but I didn’t need to. I was all cozied up on my twin bed.

Krysta was nervous about falling out of her bed, but gratefully she didn’t!
