Saturday Morning Post


A very cold week here in the Maritimes.


Starting with a bang! Cannon at Point Pleasant Park.


Big wind storm last week 'downed' a few trees.....



Container pier cranes.


Cross at the Navy Memorial looking out to sea.


Freighter coming into Halifax Harbour.


Navy memorial.


Part of a wharf in  Musquodoboit Harbour  yesterday.
(click to learn how to pronounce this word)


Wet day on Halifax street.


Off-season fishing boats at, here we go again, Musquodoboit Harbour.


Sons? Brothers?


Waiting for the light to change.


TSK TSK! Didn't take this photo on purpose....car got in front of shot.
Driving while holding cell phones/smart phones is illegal in Nova Scotia.


I smiled when I saw this in front of me the other day.
Reminded me of the Beatles' 'Abbey Road'.

  1. Your words accompany the photos so well, and the last one, super. Down here, cell phone use when driving, illegal . Why do drivers continue to flaunt the rules? I'm sure you all behave impeccably!!! Cheers from Jean.

    1. 'Rules' are unintentionally made to be broken....are they not!? So many accidents here due to cell phone driving. I am glad I am NOT a multi-tasker! lol
      Thanks for dropping by Jean!

    1. Well then.... .it is an easy city to live in, I feel......a little bit of everything and not too much of one thing, a slower pace than most cities in North America but a healthy pace I feel.....why else would a Buddhist community pack up everything and move here?

  3. Ever been in the passenger seat when the driver is talking on his cell? Scary! I, too, like the last pic, it has a certain 'ducks in a row' feeling.

    1. I hear you Sharon! And no I haven't been in that position.
      This was totally a random shot.....no wonder our car insurance keeps going up....due to all the car accidents thanks to cell phones.
      I was glad I had my camera in the car.....no I wasn't driving! lol

  4. Awesome photos, Jim! And do you ever capture the essence of raw, cold weather! Love the photos of MH ~ especially the wharf. Burr-rrr! I can say MH just fine if I don't think about it! Spelling it? Ha! No way in ----! Oh, loved the warm sunlit flower painting pictures you took in the last post. It's semi warm here ~ warm enough that I walked to Parkway at 4:00 yesterday afternoon. Damn near froze in the wind, but a glass of wine and talking to friends warmed me up before Terry arrived. And I got to ride home in a warm car! Have a great weekend!

    1. Gotta love our Mi'kmaq history and their names.......practice makes perfect! Ron is an excellent speller and says he usually won most 'spelling bees'!! So I turn to him as my own personal 'spell check'!
      It's going up to + 12C here today/tonight.....that ought to get rid of all the dirty snow and we'll wait for some more clean stuff to fall.
      Have a great weekend Louise.

  8. I like the Abbey Road photo. Paul needs to take off his boots. Remember the rumor that he was dead?

    Love,

  9. I love that last photo, Jim! Yes, it makes me think of the Beatles. TSK TSK is right about that guy talking on the cell phone while driving. I run across so many people that do that. They just don't give a damn about the law, and think they're beyond it.

    And I love that freighter. I saw one once, and was in awe of how huge it is!
