Vacation 2018 & Other Stuff

Wow I can’t believe it is September already! And I can’t believe I have gone the whole summer without blogging even though I said I was going to blog multiple times a week. I am guessing that was a little bit of an impossible goal for me. I will apologize a head of time that this post is going to be a little bit of everything, all over the place, but that is kinda what blogging is all about, right?

Since my last post a lot has actually happened. I fell again and re-injured my leg and hurt my hip (which I didn’t hurt the first time) at the beginning of August. I am just now starting to be able to tolerate a bit of weight on it. I am back using crutches again but this time we said the hell with it and rented a wheelchair for a month or so. They did both x-ray’s and a CT scan. I am awaiting the results of the CT which was done last week. I am assuming nothing major or I should have been contacted by now. READ MORE

May Recap

At the end of April I decided to do at the end of each month a monthly recap of the month. So today is the end of May. Wow I can’t believe it is the end of May already! The month went by so quickly. It was a beautiful month. May has always been one of my favorite months. I remember celebrating May Day in school when we lived in Europe when I was younger. I always took part and I loved it.

So I guess I am going to start with my May goals and then I will also talk a bit about other things that have happened during May. I want to make this a monthly thing that I do each month more for myself then for anyone else reading just so later I can look back and see the progress I am making as well as see what happened in certain months but I think it is also interesting as a feature post that shows what is going on in my life.

Plans for Next Weekend

I am hoping next weekend we will be able to walk the Pockwock Falls in the Pockwock Wilderness Area. I still have the photos from Kejimkujik Seaside to edit in Photoshop & Lightroom but I just haven’t had the time to tackle it. I will eventually do a second part to that blog post. Hopefully there are some decent photos hiding among them. After hiking Cape Split the other day we realized we need to stick to easy ones for a little while

I really want to go take some waterfall photos so I figure it would be a good one to start with plus the photos I have seen online of the falls look pretty cool. The hike itself says it is a 3km, 1 hour return hike to the falls and is easy to moderate. So I think it will be a nice relaxing and easy hike. READ MORE

Mahone Bay & Lunenburg

These photos are actually old photos I found on my camera when I was getting it ready to go to Peggy’s Cove the other day. They are from October 16, 2016. I did a quick search on my blog and don’t think that they were ever added here. Sadly for me I can not take credit for the first two. My lovely husband seems to have a better eye then I do when it comes to photography sometimes. I suppose I should be proud of that fact

I remember the drive. It was a beautiful sunny fall day, as is obvious from the photos but it was very cold out. I remember wanting to go for a wanting to get out and walk around Mahone Bay but deciding against it because it was too cold. Later in Lunenburg we did decide to get out and walk around a little bit but it didn’t last long because if I remember correctly I didn’t bring a jacket with me just a thin sweatshirt, dumb on my part.

Peggy’s Cove

So I decided since yesterday was Saturday and since I was feeling miserable with a cold that it was time to get out, get some fresh air and let Edward drive somewhere new and ignore the fact I felt like crap. So he drove us to Peggy’s Cove just outside Halifax. It was a beautiful day to go since it was 20°C out. It wasn’t super busy. Lots of room for climbing on the rocks and taking photos.

First we found a path between the Swiss Air Flight 111 Memorial and Peggy’s Cove so that I could get some photos from further away and then we went into Peggy’s Cove to go walk on the rocks and take pictures. It was beautiful but windy which was perfect for some nice wave pictures as well. This has always been one of my favorite places to go for a walk or to take pictures READ MORE
