Saturday Morning Post


This fella pulled into the vacant parking lot early last Sunday
as I was opening up the shop for the day.

Sophie and I had a good spring walk this week at Birch Cove Park in Dartmouth.

We had snow earlier this week much to Sophie's Point Pleasant.

Trekking up MacDonald Hill......

Imagining the past through the fog last week at the park......

 The gazebo at the 'point' in Point Pleasant Park in Halifax....

I really like this photo of my brother, Dennis, and I which I found
at my father's yesterday....we were probably around 10 and 12 years old.

I'm liken this lichen.

A world of life on this tree stump.....

Always good to look up too......



  1. That old cannon in the field with the foggy trees -- so evocative! And what a great old photo of you and your brother. Evocative in its own way too, isn't it.

    1. Oh it sure is, Debra, on both photos!
      The first transports me back to what the battles between the French and the English must have been like.
      And the one with my brother really takes me back to those days as children

  2. I like your old photo, too - they bring back memories, don't they? Your snow photos at Point Pleasant are beautiful. We actually might get rain instead of snow today - we'll see! Enjoy your weekend, Jim. I've enjoyed your Saturday Post.

    1. I have been immersed in old photos for the past day or so.....going through ones for my father's 100th birthday invitation card for which I am preparing.....I am flooded with good memories.
      You sound a tad disappointed, Barb, that rain is in your forecast!!
      We are getting up to 10 cm/5inches of snow tonight and tomorrow. Not bad, we can handle that.
      A good weekend to you as well.

  3. Snow, photos from the past , a mighty fallen tree, and 100 years coming up, what a celebration.Old family photos, or should I say photos from times past, real treasures.

    1. Hi Jean!
      Yes, a real celebration coming up in June for my father.
      Any snow in your neck of the woods yet?!

  4. I'm liken that lichen, too, and everything else you've shared. But that tree looks more felled than fallen!

    1. I would have to agree, Mitchell. It was felled. You lumber-sexuals are all the same!!! lol

  5. A day late, just wanted to say that I really enjoyed this post, each photo tells a different story I especially like the one of you and your brother wearing your Canadian sweaters and glad that it brings back so many good memories for you.

  6. Great shots, Jim! For a moment I was sure I had commented on this post because some images are so familiar. But then I remembered we're connected on Facebook, so I get a preview! LOL...

  7. What wonderful captures! I'm gonna go diggin through my old black and white family photos. Lots of treasures there! I just love the geometry of that structure you are looking up into! Always an adventure here. Thank you for sharing! Aloha.
