I’m seriously behind in my photo blogging!
Mom and Grandma Stock visited over a week ago. Jeff and I picked them up in Pictou from the ferry on Friday (after their visit with Joe and Patricia) and took them to the Halifax airport on Monday so they could fly home.
Here are some photos I took while we were waiting for their ferry to arrive:
I told you early about our rummy card playing. And I told you about the whales and seals we saw. But that wasn’t enough for Mom. She demanded that she been shown an east coast deer. So we did one better. We were on a gravel road out near Wine Harbour and there was a doe and TWO fawns on the road in front of us! Take that! 😀
On Monday we got early so we could drive to Halifax, and then go a wee bit past Halifax to Peggy’s Cove. Mom and I hadn’t been there since our family vacation in 1990. Grandma Stock was there in the 90’s with her brother and sister-in-law. Jeff was there in 2001. It was a dark rainy day, but the rocks weren’t too wet and just a little bit slippery so we still walked on them to get some photos. What a crazy tourist attraction. I guess a rocky shoreline with a lighthouse is some fascinating thing if you aren’t used to it – but it isn’t much different from the shoreline in many places in Ontario – Killbear Provincial Park north of Parry Sound for example, minus the trees. I like the old fishing buildings in Peggy’s Cove more than the shoreline. Here are some photos:
thanks for the update, and the pictures. I especially like the warning sign- although perhaps they should have lights or something around it so more people would read it. Although I wonder if there has ever been a study done to see if after people read those signs they stay further back then people who don’t read those warning signs.
I am glad you still like being a tourist, even in your own province.
