Saturday Morning Post


The 'tale of two cities' this week:


We checked out these condos in Dartmouth this week.


Still in Dartmouth, at Birch Cove Park on Lake Banook.


A giant jump across the harbour to Halifax yesterday morning at Point Pleasant Park.


Don't get seasick but this is a shot of  downtown Halifax from Dartmouth waterfront.


A container cargo ship docked at Halifax pier.


This is Rusty, an adorable Australian Labradoodle Sophie found at the park yesterday.


A man and his dog at the beach this week.


Street-art at the Dartmouth waterfront.


Staring out to sea....


Church/street art mix.

Boats at Dartmouth waterfront.


Coffee shop in condo complex.


Sophie thinks Ron is on the computer too much.


She tries again......


Kitchen mobile....


Sunset light hits 'lath house' in garden the day before the storm.


During the storm on Wednesday.

Hope you all survived the 'harbour-hopping' on this post.

    1. That she is Mitchell. Sophie will not leave Ron's side.
      LOL! You like to move do you?!!
      We are just looking at options for down the road a few years......getting a feel for the market, so to speak. Dartmouth is one of 6 cities in Canada that is 'on the rise' as a good place in which to live. So we will see.

  10. Loved these, Jim! Those two photos of Ron and Sophie ~ too cute! Gracie is like that. She'll put her paw on you to get attention. When all else fails, she heads over to Rufus and puts a paw over Rufus's nose! Hysterical! But Ron and Sophie are just sweet. Doesn't someone you love seem even more precious when you felt a mortal chill wind blow by?
    The graffiti street art you have been posting is really good. We get mostly gangsta graffiti in our metro area. I thought the Dartmouth boats were more street art at first glance, and then I realized it was Jim art! Hope you are doing well!
