Saturday Morning Post


Seems like another batch of eclectic photos this week:


Sunset from MacDonald Hill.


Seaweed 'beach art'.


Bright reflected sunlight on beach.


Time for Sophie to cool off her feet.


Same sunset....a little later.


Wet sand serves as a mirror....


At Point Pleasant Park....


 This crow was not budging....must have been protecting some food close by.


Hi Ron....on MacDonald Hill.


Surfers catching a few at sunset.


Got this vintage 'Atomic Age' coffee table this week.


At the 'Hydrostone' area in north end Halifax.


On Halloween we celebrated 'Day of the Dead' at a great
Mexican restaurant....more about this next week.


Getting ready for the snow!!!


Again in the 'Hydrostone' area of Halifax.


'Down On The Boardwalk'


Stones.....


Autumn grazing in the Gaspereaux Valley last weekend.


Up very early yesterday morning to get these
brand new 'winter tires' installed.
Bring on the snow!


While in the Valley last weekend Ron showed me where his paternal grandparents lived.


A sign of inclement weather coming  when cattle are lying on the ground.


At Horton Landing....the Acadian deportation site.

  4. I like your photo editing, Jim! All that light and water makes for great photos. Love the new coffee table. I'm shopping for a new chair-side table for the great room - hope I have as good a find as you. Your comment on the cow photo brought back memories - my mom would tell me it was going to rain if the cows were lying down.

    1. Glad you enjoyed them, Debra.
      I got that sled at a 'thrift' shop in the summer. And no, I will not be 'trying it out' this winter!! lol This one was made by a company in PEI....probably in the 70's I believe.

  8. Super photos, Jim! Very eclectic. Love that Seaweed 'beach art'. Very cool. And I'm looking forward to the post about that Mexican restaurant. I'm very curious now! We put on brand new tires yesterday, so as you said "Bring on the snow!"

  9. Wonderful shots, Jim.
    Many years ago I had a rendezvous with a special person at Point Pleasant Park, hardly remember his name though , oh wait it was Miro, brings back a new memory.
    When I visit you I feel close to NS and I like that.

  10. Oh heaven, I love the ocean I love all your photos and there's indeed quite a variety, but I love the Sea, so much, here we have rivers where I live but we also have the Magnificent Gatineau Hills , I'm happy to have bookmarked you. I once thought that If I could move from here it would be in the Maritimes, it came down to Nfld or Nova Scotia, now I'm going to go try again to see if I can hear Abba, I love Dancing Queen. I'll be back!!

  11. Forgot to ask are you using Adobe CS or Picasa 3 and their new features, I picked Picasa 3 because it's free :)
