Cooling temperatures

August 17, 2015

This was my view tonight after a lively Zumba session on the pier at Canada Place. It was good to get back to that. I missed it 2 weeks in a row. The movements were a little easier today and I couldn’t help but notice the weather was cooler than 2 weeks ago. CRAP. I […]

Morning glory 4 ways

August 16, 2015

I took photos of this purple morning glory yesterday at the Historic Stewart Farm. Lovely! But I believe they are still considered an invasive species even if they are so pretty and seem to glow in the middle. Today Mike was at work at an ungodly hour – he left the house at 6 am. […]

Beauty Mark

August 15, 2015

We decided to have a lazy day today (THANK GOODNESS). We went out to Historic Stewart Farm for an easy photo walk. Sadly, the house was closed (I think for a wedding), but the garden and the orchard were still open for business so we helped ourselves to photos. We did not take an apple, […]

Thinking about those oxen

August 13, 2015

I sure do miss those oxen from the Big Ex in Nova Scotia. I asked my FIL (Father In Law!) if they always keep the oxen together and he said yes. For team building. And I did a little research about training oxen and they do like to be with their buddy and around other […]

The tour guides? Or the tourists?

August 12, 2015

My camera feels too heavy to start taking photos of Vancouver again. I still have so many photos of Nova Scotia to post that it doesn’t matter. Those tourists in Gastown can always wait a bit longer. We came home to no rain at all and maybe a little bit in the foreseeable future. Frightening. I […]

Back with the Smashy Brothers

August 11, 2015

I was kind of worried that the kitties would be mad at us for leaving them for 10 days. I guess that’s a stupid idea now that I type it out. I don’t think they can tell time and they were fed by the neighbours twice a day, so it makes no sense. ANYWAY, they […]

Back to the usual tomorrow.

August 10, 2015

We made it home! And the kitties were happy to see us – either that or they were happy to get fed. It’s really hard to tell. I half-heartedly unpacked some of the things from our suitcase, but will leave the rest for tomorrow and/or Wednesday. You know how that goes. SIDE NOTE: I have […]

Like a story book

August 9, 2015

This past week (plus a couple extra days) we have seen some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. This is Lunenburg from across the harbour at a golf course. I think I could even get into golf with this view. FORE! I think we’ll make one more quick trip to Lunenburg before […]

Friends and family

August 8, 2015

We were on the road today to a place called, Endfield, to watch our nephew play in the world’s shortest and longest baseball game. Let me explain. Oh wait. I can’t. The game went only 4 innings, however, the score was something like 25 to 4. And there’s a mercy rule which I can’t remember […]

Carters Beach & Broad Cove

August 7, 2015

Boy, I wish these Brownes would take us somewhere nice for a change.
