Saturday Morning Post

Water everywhere this week.......


'The ducks are on the pond, boys." My high school vice-principal said this all the time!!


Female Mallard duck.


These ducks were at Sullivan's Pond this week in Dartmouth.



Sophie would have been in the pond if she could!


Coming around the bend at Point Pleasant Park in Halifax.


An adorable Burmese-St.Bernard mix watching Sophie. His name is Ason (as in Jason).
He didn't leave the water.


A good breeze had this sailboat whipping by!! 


My sister, Mim, and her dog Maggie.


Being a make-up artist Mim HAD to show us a new line.


Thought this video was appropriate and going out to Mim!


Not sure what Ron was doing here....I think 'talking' to Maggie.


Michael (Mim's partner) and Sophie.


Along the boardwalk at Lake Banook.



An old church turned 'meeting hall' at sunset this week.

  1. I can even see the wake behind the sail boat! I would say they were moving!
    Tell Mim I think she looks fabulous!
    Why is Sophie not in the water... Ason is - I bet she wondered the same thing...
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Sophie was to the right of Aston.....ignoring him like she does every dog when she has Mr.Orangie!!
      Some days these boats are at a good clip zipping up and down the Arm in Halifax.
      Mim will be tickled for sure, Sharon.

  3. Love all the people photos (including Sophie, of course). The make-up is fascinating... I had no idea there was such a variety of colors for the hands!

    1. LOL! That's how women and men wear make-up in Nova Scotia Mitch! You mean in other places it is worn differently?

  5. Outstanding job on the boardwalk photos...you captured the light beautifully. Does Mim make her own cosmetics?

    1. Hi Liz. Thanks, the sun that evening was perfect for type of photo.
      Mim does not make her own cosmetics.....she is getting into a new line that is just being marketed here in Nova Scotia at first, then across Canada.

    1. I should have known back then when this was my favourite song that something 'was up'!! Just a tad slow off the mark I guess, Debra! lol Loved her voice.
