A Picture a Day?

Is it time to start getting excited? It's been nine years since we drove Down East for three weeks. We toured quite a bit of New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Cape Breton (northern Nova Scotia). Despite the fact that it was a fairly long vacation, we still ran out of time and didn't really get to do mainland or southern Nova Scotia.

It was a great trip, and it's been in our minds that we would get back there someday. So, when our old friends from Sarnia moved to Yarmouth, we decided that we could kill two birds with one stone: visit our friends and return to the East Coast.

This won't be a long vacation, just a week, but we're looking forward to it. We'll see the Atlantic Ocean again and lots of fishing-related places like the one following picture, I expect. Or maybe not; we'll see where the road and our friends take us.

This is Neil's Harbour in the northern part of Cape Breton. We loved Cape Breton and the Cabot Trail. I don't know if we'll get back there again this time, but I'm sure we'll enjoy whatever we do wherever we go.

Note: today I decided that when all else fails, I would try to post a photo per day (or most days) along with a short commentary, and this is the first. I often don't know what to blog about anymore for two reasons: (i) with well over a thousand posts in the bank, I don't always know what to add; (ii) my brain is turning to mush since my most stimulating activity has become changing "poopies". But, I do have pictures and promise that they won't always be of Nikki Dee and Zach. I don't suppose that I will really post a picture every day, and I also suppose that I will still find other things to add from time to time, but the concept may help me to post more regularly (or not) as I seem to be going through fits and starts lately.

Well I can see why you would be excited to go to Cape Breton. t looks very quaint!
About your brain turning to mush from all of the poopies, I always said to my husband that each time that I gave birth (3) a little bit of my brain came out as well.
Weather or not this is true for men as well, I don't know!
Either way you seem to do fine with your postings AC. We post what we know and what we live!
Love Di ♥

Whatever you do, we'll like it. I would like to go to New England to take pictures. We're tentatively slated to get up to Boston in August ... if everything works out. I would like to take pics of cemeteries there! I like your fishing boats.

We'll see how this pic thing works out.

Looking forward to the getaway, but we still have more than a month to go.

Pearl said...

in a month? ah, you'll be leaving around the same time as me but opposite direction.

I haven't sure what I'll do about blogs. no wifi where I'm going and unlikely to have anything but spotty connection.

I think you should just go and have a Peaceful and relaxing time...Do Not post a Thing (unless you REALLY want to)...You two deserve the break! Go get refreshed! Don't forget a good book to fill in the quiet times!
But don't think for One minute you can get Out of blogging, buddy!LOLOL...30 more years of it at Least!!Hahaa

A/C, a week isn't long enough to see Southern NS although my favorite spot is Cape Breton and I love the Annapolis Valley. Being from NB I am a bit prejudice. Enjoy your trip my friend, you will meet no friendlier people in the world.......:-) Hugs

There's a very strange vibe in the blog world lately -- a molasses vibe, slowing everything down...

Looking forward to your pictures.

My great-great-grandfather was born in Cape Breton.

I want to go there. Someday.
