(For some odd reason you may have to let the video load first, hope to fix that soon)
Heading down on an adventure today… I found an old dirt road that I haven’t been down before…let’s see what’s at the end of it. It’s always an adventure ..what a beautiful spot, the day is sunny ..salty air.. wind in your face.. perfect! As I approached the end of the long road I kept coming across signs of ” Elinor’s Dis & Dat shop ” come and visit!..and I said to myself “Well I have to find out where this little shop is”. I then came across some stuffed animals nailed onto an old log and some more interesting things..it got my curiosity going.! I came across part of an old lighthouse and after talking with some people they said that was just part of the lighthouse , the other part was moved up on a hill across the road.
As I approached the end of the road I saw some old sheds that looked really interesting. One had the door open and a sign read “Elinor’s Dis & Dat Shop, come on in” so in I went and the next thing I heard was a lady hollering to come over and visit her. So over I go to visit her, she heard me before she could see me as she doesn’t have very good eyesight. Her name was Elinor Selig-Roberts. She was 85 and has live there most of her life like her parents and her grandparents before that. What a lovely talk and visit we had.
I have gone back many times in the last few months to visit with her, she has so many wonderful stories to tell. She keeps me spellbind-ed. I sure do love her, we have become great friends. She wrote a wonderful book on the history of Long Cove and her life, it is a great read! Her second book is coming out next month so I will probably do another video with her telling some stories. I had to upload this video in Part 1 and Part 2 as it was so long . This video is just about my adventure and meeting her for the first time. I hope you enjoy it. I had a great time making it. 🙂
