photoSpent the day with the expanding family…but it was so different with Forest at school!  Five days a week, and all day. Something is wrong when 5 year olds have to be in school that long. What ever happened to half day kindergarten? My rant for the day.

IMG_9803Quite the agile eater…

IMG_9805Was Noah already anticipating what would happen to his breakfast?

IMG_9821On a calmer note…nothing like a sunset, no matter how many times I see them..

IMG_9829Ditto for moonlight…

IMG_9743Jockel’s parents have been visiting for awhile from Germany. We took on the delightful task of showing them Mahone Bay, Lunenburg, Blue Rocks, Stonehurst and Chester, on a fabulous day! It always makes you love Nova Scotia more when you are showing it off.  And always terrific when the viewers love the views..

IMG_9771..and who could not?

IMG_9795..a lovely time was had by all, as the saying goes..

IMG_9685A bag for a fundraiser..fun to work on something so different for me. The fabric was given to each person donating to this fundraiser, so also fun to work on colours that I don’t typically use. It was a nice memory of when Susan and Lis were both around, and we traced a bag of mine to create the pattern. Ahh..that was in July, which seems so long ago now. Summer is winding down fast…

IMG_9567I know this wasn’t from today..but it was from a few nights back.. Sometimes I just can’t put in every photo I want to, and other days I’ve taken photos but they aren’t speaking to me. This one does…

IMG_9601On a nature and whale watching cruise, thanks to our amazing neighbours Hans and Mariolina, who just wanted to spoil their friends and neighbours. And they did. Here I’m gazing out to sea with a crew member telling me he’s sorry there are no whales spotted today. I was in such bliss at the scenery..all blue water and sky, a few seals and Gannets…. all magical. The weather was to have been awful and it was instead spectacular. Could not have had a finer time.

IMG_9609Now I understand what “rolling fog” really means. See? who needs whales..

IMG_9651Leaving the whale watching boat for the “dinner-while-travelling-the-Arm-and-gawking-at-mansions” boat.

IMG_9658Part of the view…oh my, a sublime day.
