PERFECT WEATHER ON THE WATERFRONT


Thanks for returning on THANKSGIVING WEEK.
(I've named it WEEK because Mike and Susan came for a whole week ~~ TA DA )
Do you think my DOODLE RADAR will keep them out of trouble?


Everyone needs to be careful along the harbour boardwalk
because just one wrong step to the right 
and into the drink you fall.
( It has been known to happen )


Susan, Jim and Mike discuss lots of different topics
as I sit beside Ron.
~~~
For some reason Ron holds me tight
because when I was a 'wee one' I almost jumped off the boardwalk
because, well because, 
I wanted to.
 The water made me do it and that's what I'm sticking to.


Susan looks mighty cool in her new red woolen jacket she purchased yesterday
at the MacDonald Hill Tea House.


Jim is such a good guy.
He said he'd take care of me
while Ron slipped into
with Mike and Susan.


These cakes are to die for, really !
A lot of people received these as Christmas gifts one year.
The company does the packing and shipping
so very easy and less stressful.


Newfoundland Screech 
So, the name says it all ~~ you'll be screeching after you sample / devour it.
Now it's in coffee ~~~ HELP !!


While they milled around the shop
Jim and I waited ever so patiently at this veiwpoint
(another angle in 1st picture)
The gentleman photographer Jim discovered is from
Saskatoon, Saskatechewan
( google that one folks or click here )
He and his wife traveled to Ontario for an event
and then decided to keep driving east to 
Nova Scotia.


Doesn't this picture say it all ~~~ HAPPINESS !!


Segways ( < click ) 
are bountiful, but Susan decided it wasn't her cuppa cuppa !


Mike and Ron are having a PHOTO - OFF
 LOL !!
Mike is a Canon Guy and Ron and Jim are Nikon Guys.
I heard them discussing and learning about each others toys.
Susan's Nikon Coolpix really took great pictures too 
light weight, fast and above a perfect fall colour ~~ 
reddish maroon to match her new jacket of course !


One last look at this cruise ship.
Hmmm, maybe a cruise is in the future,
you never know.


and a  last quick photo for Jimbo
and then off to our next discovery.

Come On Back !!

  2. What beautiful photos by the water! Is there any place better to be? Sounds like such a great week. It's always fun when people visit, isn't it? I don't blame Ron for holding onto you tightly. You probably scared him to death when you tried jumping off the boardwalk when you were a 'wee' one! Scary then, but probably a funny story now :)

    1. Oh Marfa ~~~ I had a most delicious time licking everyone and then some. I decided to sit still (?) for awhile as Jim took pictures and talked to that fellow from the Prairies and 2 ladies from Sydney Australia who had a Labradoodle that looked like me. Wowsers they smelled some good!!

    1. We most certainly did, Jill.

      Guess what Jill? We met 2 Aussie's from Sydney who were touring Halifax and had just come off the cruise ship. One had a Doodle that looked like Sophie and showed us her sweetie on her camera phone. She took a photo of me and Sophie. I wish I had gotten an address, oh well !!

    1. I tested her Sharon. She sniffed and I almost felt a twinge, a jumping twinge on the leash. But SOPHIE DOODNLE SNOODLE was just fine sitting and watching everyone!!
