  1. The photos are so great that it makes me want to go...and I was there! Next time we will sample DeeDee's at the Peggy's Cover location.

  2. Seems like you got a lot into and out of your four day trip!

  3. We sure did John ... and somehow did it all at a lovely leisurely pace with plenty of relaxation mixed in.
    Already planning my next visit ;-)

  4. Hooray! Wonderful to see Halifax and environs through your eyes:) So many places still to to see. It was terrific meeting you and maybe this summer you will be back again and we can have more of a visit OR I might plan a visit to your neck of the woods. One never knows.

  5. What's that prickly thing with the beautiful brown seed???

    Welcome back. Miss D says NEVER leave again.

  6. Ahhhh.... what a spectacular adventure with a true friend. Welcome home and hope your petting hand is falling off. Nice to see the ocean! Mom heads to sunny, hot, sticky, hot, Florida today... I hear she will see the ocean too. My tail is NOT wagging.
    Can you stop by and take me for a walk?

  7. the prickly thing with the beautiful brown seed is a ceramic horseshoe chestnut pod/seed. MLou collects pottery/ceramics & Missy agrees !! xos

  8. Just so ya know - you were missed not only by your cowboy and your furfamily, but also by folks halfway 'round the world.

    Welcome home! Glad you had fun!!
