THANKSGIVING MAGIC !!


This Thanksgiving Weekend in my part of the world
I managed to see and smell so very much.


In the park pond these three ducks wouldn't have anything to do with me.
~ everything straight into the air for us ~


This monstrous mossy laden tree 
really was an eye-catcher
even for a DOODLE.


Slipping through the side streets of Halifax
is always a colourful treat
and
with so much construction going on
we found new/old homes
"the nouveau riche"
taking over neighbourhoods.
Very exciting I guess!


Then before we knew it we made a visit to Martinique Beach
a good hour and 1/2 drive from the city.
We came upon a busload of kayakers from the Gaspe Peninsula in Quebec.
The surf was perfect for them
~ but ~
I only had my eye on Daddy Ron.


~~ SEE ~~
There now do you believe me?!!
Pinpoint DOODLE accuracy for my Daddy.
He is not going to get away from me.


However the moment of tranquility and peace
was sitting in the back seat of the car
as I stared at all these lights
NEON LIGHTS
while hamburgers were making their way to us.


The neon lights seemed to have a magic all their own.

Just like I wish for all of your

Have a magical weekend 

from us on our 

THANKSGIVING WEEKEND !!

    We still have to wait another six weeks or so before we can sneak leftover turkey from under the table.

    1. The duck had Jim snickering too, Barb!

      When I took the photo I was standing on a rock overlooking the pond. I could see the water circles moving and knew the ducks were there. Slowly I crept up aiming the camera, hoping the 3 fellers would be nose down. Actually I couldn't tell until I got home and viewed them. A smile appeared on my face.
      It worked.

      The photo will become part of our card collection we have almost readied for sale.

      Cheers and excuse me while I have a second helping of the turkey and mashed potatoes!!

  7. Happy Thanksgiving!!!! I hope that you have a lovely day! I'm sure that you will be eating VERY well! My sister Donnie and her husband are throwing a big dinner for all the nieces and nephews and friends at university in Nova Scotia, plus others flying in. Wish I could be there. :( Oh well, our Thanksgiving is coming up in a little over a month! Take care!

    1. Thanksgiving in the Cove ~~ that sounds wonderful Louise. Maybe some year you and Terry could experience that!!

      Jim is working at the shoppe all day so we decided to eat out at a restaurant when he`s finished. Much easier and NO clean up!! Highly recommended!

      Sophie and I had the entire beach to ourselves this morning. I am putting a video on FB to prove it!!

      Winks and thanks for the HAPPY!!!

    1. Thanks Jean from far away!!!

      I was standing high and dry on a rock outcrop which swings far out from the shoreline. Sophie and Jim dropped me off at the 1st beach along this shore and I walked a bit coming around the point. There in front of me were all the kayakers and Sophie and Jim in the midst of them. Apparently, Sophie was not a happy camper because I wasn't beside her. She ran up to every kayaker thinking it was me. Jim said "Look over there Sophie, there is Ron on the rocks". She took off like missile and saved me from a fate worse than death. She really takes care of us!

      Thanks for the hugs and Thanksgiving well wishes.

      All the best to you both!!

      Ron

  14. Sophie do you fellas head down to Martinique on the 207 ? as the 107 is a much shorter drive ...

    Nice to see you making into town. Hope you had a lovely walk at PPP.

    1. We take the 207 since it is on our doorstep all the way to SuperStore Porter's lake, turn right and drive to Mosquito Bite Harbour (WINKS ~ short for Musquodoboit Harbour) turn right and head 12 kms to Martinique. If we are ever in a hurry, which is hardly ever, we will skip up onto the 107. No matter which route we always get scads of photos which is the main reason to go along with the serenity.

      Happy Thanksgiving Sybil!!
