These bright little espresso cups caught my eye at the very cozy The Flying Fox Bake Shop in historic Shelburne, Nova Scotia. The shop’s tasty fresh-baked treats and piping hot coffee brightened the cold November day considerably, as did the ready conversation of the shop’s cheerful owner, Julie Shand. Julie shared with me that in light of her having lived way up near Yellowknife, Yukon Territory, shortly before opening the Flying Fox, Shelburne’s windy temperatures of 33°F / 0°C on that day seemed nearly tropical to her! For my part, I kept my gloves near at hand.
Interesting, and just after I watched a video on Facebook from Planet Earth series of a red fox leaping into the snow to catch a mouse… looks just like the one on the Bake Shop sign! ~SueBee
So very cool!
With a name like Flying Fox one would just have to wander in to check the place out. 🙂
My thoughts exactly!
Cute cups!!! Love the name of her bakery!!!
I just had a wonderful mouth watering wander around the Flying Fox’s website. Thanks for sharing it. Looks like a veritable wonderland! So wish we were close enough to visit. cheers, CC from Downunder.
Thanks for the visit!
Julie is a friend of ours from her time here in the Yukon! She is a stellar woman and kindness radiates out from her.
Kara, thanks and I love that your comment brings home the small world connectedness that we all share!
