It was great to see so many out at the Canterbury Craft Sale today.

I really enjoyed chatting with people about their walks along the beaches of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and B.C. Canada's coasts still have lots of sea glass to be found, although the consensus among those I spoke with today is that there is less of it each year.

The most memorable moment for me had to be when the woman came up to me and asked, 'Kristina, do you remember me?' I paused... while I am pretty good at remembering faces, I couldn't place her. Then she said, 'I'm Helene'. I gave her a huge hug. The last time I had seen her I was 6. Over 30 years ago (avoiding exact math here). She is the daughter of the woman who used to babysit my sister and I, and often looked after us as well. Her sister, Sylvie, and she also had a booth at the craft sale today. Helene used to take us to the outdoor Canterbury wading pool, right next door. I am still smiling :)
