we went over the protected dunes, very cool, to the beach in a new area…and Frank was happy…but, photos can lie. Frank was happy, but at the beach it was so windy that we had to head back after this photo. The past two days the double red flags have been out, warning that you aren’t to step foot into the water. The beach was deserted. What appeals to me about the photo is how it’s the truth and not the truth. “Photos lie ” does not have to mean that they were photo shopped, but that they can let the viewer think one thing when another is the truth. Have to love the white sand though. Love seeing it each day.

a very long day..up at 2:30 a.m…off to Montreal, then to Toronto, but not before the new plane was de-iced, something I never saw before! then to Atlanta, Georgia, then rented a car and drove 5 hours to close to Panama City Beach in Florida, where Peter and Carole awaited us. Exhausted, feeling a little aged for our life time pattern of finding the cheapest way to get from “a” to “b”…but now we’re here and, like child birth, the pain of the travels will soon be forgotten with the adventure of a new location, and the novelty of sharing that with another couple. Let the games begin!
auOnce more the CFA’s (Come From Away) led me where I don’t often go in this season…to Lawrencetown Beach at sunset. The ocean was roiling (love that word) from all the wind of late. Impressive. Glad to be pulled out of my winter couch potato mode and made to walk the rocks where in the summer the beach presides. Fascinating how the seasons change the beach. Thanks, neighbours.
We drove to Chester with our wonderful Swiss neighbours, Matt and Susan, here for a brief holiday. They appreciate N.S. the way CFA’s can so enthusiastically do, and an opportunity on a sunny day to hug the coastline from Chester on back to Halifax is not to be missed. Here we oohed and awwed over the area around Northwest Cove. Frank and I may not approve of fish as a source for our dietary needs, but we whole heartedly approve of fishing villages. Ironic, isn’t it? Like those sweet cows and sheep we love to see in farmers fields. It’s a complicated world in our universe.
