On July 4th Eddie and I went to a place I have been wanting to go for a while, Burntcoat Head Park here in Nova Scotia. When the tide is out you can walk the ocean floor. It’s pretty neat. We had to time it just right for the evening high and low tides. We started heading out to get there just as it was high tide. I had taken a few pictures on my camera but I haven’t even looked at them really yet. I know it was 10 days ago but I have been busy starting my new job and just didn’t have the time. I planned this weekend but never had the time either. Maybe next weekend I will. So more pictures will follow in a Part 2 later. The following were all taken with my LG camera phone. Which is not a bad camera.
Happy Canada Day to any of my fellow Canadians and also a Happy early Independence Day to my neighbours! So for Canada Day this year Eddie and I decided to do something else rather than brave the crowds for the many events going on in Digby or Annapolis. We decided to drive down Digby Neck to East Ferry, hopped the Petit Princess to Tiverton on Long Island and then eventually onward to Westport on Brier Island. Anyone who knows me or has been following my blog for a while will know my love of lighthouses, islands, tides, and anything to do with the ocean other than eating fish.
After getting off the ferry in Tiverton turn right and head down Boar’s Head Road to Boar’s Head Lighthouse. The current lighthouse was built in 1957 and is the second lighthouse on the site. The original was built in 1863 in roughly the same spot. I am assuming that the area I was standing on to take the picture may have been the foundation of the original lighthouse but I am not sure. It was a large concrete platform up above the lighthouse.
Wow… I am so horrible at keeping a blog sometimes. It seems like yesterday it was May and I had just posted my last post. Then all of a sudden it is the end of June and I realized I have not posted anything at all here since the beginning of May. Where the heck did the time go? It’s not like I was busy really. I have been home pretty much doing nothing for weeks. Things have slowed down for my mom’s business over the summer, which is typical as the courts aren’t really open in the summertime. So I haven’t had a lot to do.
I have always wanted to get back into banking and working for a bank so after talking it over with Edward and my mom I decided to start applying again and guess what? I got a job. It’s about 30 minutes away in Bridgetown at a bank there. I will be working in a branch as a teller part-time! Which is exactly what I wanted. I don’t really need to work full-time at the moment and neither does Edward if we have the right jobs.
What is the most dangerous place you’ve ever been to and why did you go?
I’m a little late on the second prompt for The BloggerHop. I set the prompts to post on Sundays but I have had a busy start to the week. So here is the second prompt for Sunday, April 28, 2019. If you would like to learn more about The BloggerHop you can get more information here.
My parents went to Connecticut on Tuesday for a week to visit our cousins there for a birthday party and they asked us to house & dog sit for the week at their place as well as get my brother back and forth to school every day. We came over Tuesday night to stay for the week. I love their place. It’s actually owned by one of the cousins she’s visiting and her husband.
The house is 170 years old, built in 1849. I wrote about its resident ghost Ethel here a few months back. It’s such a lovely old house but cold and drafty I have not been able to get warm since we’ve been here. I also have a bit of a break from work since my mom won’t be officially training me to be her office manager until she comes back.
