Vacation Photos

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

If I thought picking "just a few" photos from the trip for uploading to FB was hard, narrowing it down to "just a few" for SP was, well, almost painful. Here you go:
July 16 - Nana and Roo meet for the very first time. Nana is *my* grandmother. Emily is her third great-grandchild.

Walking in Point Pleasant Park, Halifax, NS

July 17 - Crystal Crescent Beach in Sambro, NS. Paul and Logan actually went in this. Roo was NOT a fan of the ocean's temperature.


July 18 - We visited the Swiss Air memorial and Peggy's Cove





July 19 - We traveled the South Shore: Chester, Mahone Bay, Lunenburg and Bridgewater
Chester skatepark. That's Logan:

And Colin:

If you look real close you can see the three churches on the bay. I'm sure this is THE most often photographed scene in Mahone Bay.

Lunenburg, home of the Bluenose II, and the town where I was born:

Bridgewater's Lahave River - My grandparents lived just up the hill from here for a long time when I was a child. I spent many summers visiting them and walking the bridge over this river.

July 20 - Tall Ship Day in Halifax



July 21 - Breakfast with TURBOMEL and TOBEARUNNER and then we're off to tour the Maritimes.

This one's self-explanatory:
Colin testing the water in Cape Tormentine, NB (you can see Confederation Bridge in the background)

My father, sister-in-law and baby brother. Yeh, when he stands up, he's over 6' tall. Not sure I can call him my "little" brother anymore.

PEHASS2 and I at Hopewell Rocks, NB


Prince Edward Island:

Traveling the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, NS:

Back home in Halifax. I surprised my grandmother by getting my cousins, neither of which we've seen since 1994, to visit.

And now I'm back in Calgary. Very mixed emotions about that BUT I'm happy to be home and back to "normal" life. Vacationing is exhausting!!

    Great pics. I love Roo's reaction to the ocean.

    I had a nice trip to NS this summer too. Walked/ran past the Three Churches in Mahone Bay multiple times and spent some time in Bridgewater and Lunenburg too.
