{Nova Scotia summer 2014}

Finally time to catch up blogland!
In August I visited my parents who recently relocated to Nova Scotia. They are fixing up a beautiful cottage on a lovely piece of land with waterfront property. Simply peaceful and naturally beautiful...
While there, my parents hosted a housewarming party, we travelled to Lunenberg to hear the Nova Scotia Youth Orchestra, we visited good old friends in Halifax, we launched Ratty my parents' latest boat and christened her with a bottle of champagne, & spent the days wandering the shores, & the nights drinking nice wine and cooking & eating splendid food.
Delightful! here are some pics...

{cheers!}

 A trip to Lunenberg--the home of the Bluenose and the site where many of the grandbanks fishing schooners were built, including the Robertson II, the boat I grew up on:

It's lovely to see my parents settled so close to the sea and to see that they've already made numerous friends. They continue to inspire me in their resilience, their ability to rise to challenges, & to make anywhere home--whether it's on a boat or on land.
