What makes us different?  Well, we never spent our time worrying about buying a house or where our children will attend school.  You see, we seem to have trouble laying down our roots and you will notice that we have lived in many beautiful places.

We started our journey in Vancouver and from there we have lived in Halifax, St. John's, Toronto, Charlottetown, & Saint John.  We are compelled by nature, history, and living an authentic life by the sea... [read more]

The summery weather seems to be returning to Nova Scotia for a short while.  It looks like we have until Wednesday to enjoy the last bit of real summer before the holidays are over and the kids go back to school.  The wind was lovely today even though the sun shone hot.  The rose-hips are out in full force & our dog Rowan seems to be in her own little world out on the Commons.  

We've been finding a lot of freebies in our neighbourhood and have been putting them to good use.  Today we found some planter boxes for our deck.  A few weeks ago we stumbled upon an antique Gramophone cabinet (I'll take some photos of it later) as well as a few tables, and a very old chair.  So, we're not letting our guard down anymore and making sure we closely inspect anything that has been left on the curb.   

Along the harbour

I took these photos a few weeks ago. One of our favourite places in Halifax is the waterfront.  We've lived in a number of seaside cities and I have to say that this is probably one of the best.  The water here is very accessible and you really feel how vast the ocean is when you look out past Hangman's Beach.  I could literally spend all day wandering the boardwalks... there are so many little hidden treasures.  

Some downtime

Robert Morrisey

We're back!  We had some downtime for a little while and now we are back and ready to keep blogging away.  I know everyone is abandoning their photo blogs these days but I don't think I'll stop just yet.  It does take some patience when everything nowadays is so instantaneous.  These photos were taken in Herring Cove over a month ago... it's a nice little village on the outskirts of Halifax.  I'd like to return one day but then there are so many little villages to explore up and down the coast.  We hope to have a car soon and start doing day-trips... that will be exciting.  

We both started new jobs that will make our lives much easier.  The money will be rolling in and we can start focusing on big projects for 2015.  Exciting times as always.
