When I was in Shediac (the lobster capital of the world), I visited the Giant Lobster.
For some reason, there was this random man eating horse carrots in front of the lobster.
My friends and I ran to the lobster when a group of kids got off so we could snap some photos.
Of course, I wanted to get one by myself too!

Catching up on my SappyFest posts. Here are a few of my favourites from Friday night. You can find the full gallery at Ride the Tempo.
In January 2015, I started a blogging goal to post every day. I posted over 840 days in a row, but this week, I broke the streak. It was partially not by choice as internet on my East Coast vacation was sparse. It mostly required walking to a neighbourhood pizza place and looking like a weirdo on my computer at the beach if I was that desperate to post. It was hard at first, but I decided to break the streak.
What I discovered was a new calm. I didn’t feel the stress of needing to find content to post. I enjoyed every minute offline with friends in the beautiful scenery and taking small road trips. I have plenty of stuff to share and have a backlog of real posts (and not quick cop-out posts).
I know I previously didn’t want to break the streak, but I think quality is greater than quantity. I’ll still post as often as I have content, but getting rid of the need to fill every day with a post will be better for my mental sanity.
I’m currently sitting at the airport, but get ready for bunch of adventure posts in the next few days!
I’m currently out east with friends. Sappy Fest just ended, but I’ll be heading to friend’s cottages and continuing the vacation out here for the next few days. I’m not sure what the internet situation is going to be like, but I’ll keep trying to do my daily posts!
I’m currently in Sackville for SappyFest and even though the town is tiny, there’s still some cool places to eat I didn’t manage to try last year. Last night, I hit up Coywolf Bistro & Oyster bar with my friend.
Oysters were a must (after all it is an oyster bar). They were $2.50 each and we were served two different kinds. I liked the smaller ones we were served (I forgot where they were from).
As my main, I had a “sea czar” salad with salmon, mussels, crab, and bacon. I found the fish a bit salty but the rest was perfect.
My friend had a heaping pile of mussels and frites.
To drink, I had their take on a negroni, which had a hint of pine in it.
It’s nice to have a little bistro in this quaint town. Hope to be back for more oysters when I’m back for the festivl.
I couldn’t resist this Psyduck nail polish from the Pokémon x Tony Moly collection. I don’t know if I can pull of yellow, but I will definitely try it once the final bits of shellac come of my nails.
I bought this cute pink felt laptop case from Amazon. Ever since I went to the Pin + Patch show, I wanted something to pin. So I think this is perfect and also functional!
I went to Bandit Brewery recently for a flight of beers and some snacks. The place has a raccoon theme so all their glasses have faces and you can even buy fun posters of the beer labels in their Bottle Shop.
I had a flight of four beers: I had the Citra, Hoppelganger, Mr. Pink and Dundas West IPA. They serve it in the order that they recommend you drink them. My favourite was Mr. Pink, a flavourful hibiscus and ginger pale ale.
It was around lunch time, so I had a few snacks: Fresh Cut Russets and Beer Battered cheese curds.
The cheese curds with homemade ranch dressing were to die for and the perfect beer snack. The fries were covered in parmesan and a served with a lovely garlic mayo.
I loved the concept of this brewery and they even have funny identifications of their patrons!
