A busy week celebrating a birthday,
spending time with family at the beach,
and going to the Valley.
My father had his 101st birthday this past week.
It was a much simpler affair compared to last year's 100!
'Poor Jim' is the name the staff on his floor gave him
because he LOVES to tease them about this pain
and that ache.....all in jest of course.
So, they, and we now, call him 'Poor Jim'.
Here is 'Poor Jim'.....applauding after singing 'Happy Birthday' to him.
A good time was had by all.
Ron, Sophie and I spent the afternoon with my sister, Paula and her two granddaughters,
and our niece-in-law, Erika and her son.
We had a great time at Fisherman's cove and a beach nearby.
Fisherman' s Cove.....a typical fishing village that you can find
all over Nova Scotia.
From my perch at the shop this past Wednesday.....
The other evening we took Sophie to her favourite lake for a few dives/slides
and a good swim.
This is surfing season along the Eastern Shore.....
I waited patiently for this crow to fly away off this wire........from my shop window.
We went to the Annapolis Valley yesterday.....more specifically
the Gaspereau Valley. It is very near where Ron grew up in the town of Wolfville.
This is what I saw on the way home.....
We took a couple of 'backroads' to get us to the main highway....
Around every corner there are these old barns....
A lot of farm animals.....
Told you about all the barns....
Then up on highway 101 which takes us to Halifax.
A lot of people heading to camp grounds/cottages
as this is the Canada Day long weekend.
A ways to go.....
Don't like to stay behind these guys.....just never know!
