Watching the Sailboats!!

Hi again!
so glad you made it.
^click if you missed it^
was fun.

Here we are on the Halifax Waterfront,
the tourists haven't swamped
this area completely yet.
When the weather becomes more friendly
the boardwalk will be wall to wall peeps.
But now that you are here let me
show you one end of this cool place!

 Peek-a-boo
I DO see you.

 Jim is telling me to stick close...

because the last time I was here...

 I almost jumped over the wharf side...

to see the peeps docked in the boats below me.

I gets kinda nervous for peeps on the water and want to SAVE them!

 So liquid refreshments help to relax me and cool me off...

and ice cream helps to cool Ron off...thanks Jim...

Is this close enough...?
I can smell coffee and chocolate....mmmmm!

 OK...back to the reason we jumped into the car at the park
and high-tailed it to the waterfront...
to see the sailboats..!

 many sailboats

 every boat had many peeps on board...
just taking life,
 so very cool

 This hull caught the guys' eyes...love the RED!

 then we turned and MORE boats
in front of  George's Island
(notice the yellow on the dock in front of us and the dandelions on the island...cool)

 Ron liked this picture so much he made it his cover picture on Facebook!

 Love this angle as well, especially with the lighthouse.

So you see why we sped over here so quickly...
and to leave you with a calm picture
this is the way I felt after a great day in the city

I was very good...honest...there's no way that I
could go anywhere with that lead attached to me.

  2. So strange to see the beautiful Sophie on a leash! But she looks just as happy as ever. You DO live in a beautiful place... If your winters were milder (like no snow or cold...), I think I'd want to move there. And, despite the snow and cold in winter, you make it look so tempting!

    1. ~~~~~oowwwoohhh~~~~~these are tempting vibes.....I know what you mean about cold weather...it's all a state of mind over matter with us now...actually we LOVE the cold, cold days of winter...refreshing, revitalizing and when all bundled up...it really is a special moment walking along a white, pristine, path of snow smelling the fresh, salt air...no humidity or bugs...there...did that work?! Sophie has 3 leashes because we have to be careful in some situations with non-dog people and jumping over wharves to SAVE peeps...no more of that please. Now go have a marguerita or 3 for us...Cheers!
      Ron

    1. Leashes are sooooo necessary when venturing into busy, poopulated, high-up from the water places...I am a jumper...yup...I gets all discombobulated...so a leash calms me and makes me feel relaxed to some degree...Daddio Ron says he doesn't remember yesterday...some kinda bug...24 hr bug...grabbed and wouldn't let him enjoy the day...it rained anyway so under the covers was more fun!

    1. We like visiting in non-tourist times, I suppose like most locals in a place that attracts lots of vacationers!

  7. Great pictures your Dad took, interesting to see how your town look like. But I think you would rather run at the beach....

  13. David loves sailboats, so I shared this with him. He laughed out loud and said "Sophie, you've got it made! What a life!"
    We've only been to Halifax in the winter, and we were mighty glad to use those glass enclosures between buildings. Brrr.
