    • Teaching Off or Leave It
      Your dog sees a chicken leg on the ground He goes for it, you trip, and your dog is snacking on someone’s garbage. Yuck! Teaching the word “off” is a great command that can save your dog a trip to the vet. To start: Put a yummy treat in your h…

    • Playing in the Snow
      Snow brings out my inner child It snowed about 14 inches here at home in Northern Virginia.  I have two dogs and a hill in my back yard.  This of course calls for the implementation of a bad idea. Deja vu! My dogs needed exercise Molniya has a spec…

    • Peggy’s Cove: Fish Hash and Lobster Paste
      Spent a sunny, breezy Saturday morning at Peggy’s Cove so Amy and Ezra could see the historic lighthouse for the first time (I’d already been there last November), and explore the distinctive granite outcrops along the shore (staying off the blac…

    • Carnival!
      East Coast Amusements opened a traveling carnival in our neighbourhood for Victoria Day weekend, complete with rides and games and carnies, so we brought Ezra over so he could experience his first funfair, including his first ride on a ferris wheel (…

    • Lawrencetown Beach
      Visited Lawrencetown Beach Provincial Park for a bit last Sunday. It’s a bit startling how quickly the landscape switches to rural seaside after driving east of Cole Harbour. The beach was rough and steep and rocky, with a few surfers riding the co…

    • Halifax Gardens and Library
      Last week we ate at Smitty’s in Halifax after church, and I forgot Ezra’s sippy cup there, so I came back the next day to pick it up and used the opportunity to walk around Halifax a bit, visiting the Public Gardens and Central Library. The Garde…

    • Memento Mori at Cole Harbour Heritage Park
      Came across some reminders of mortality and impermanence as I was hiking around Cole Harbour Heritage Park last week. Overlooking the sea were these crosses marking the graves of dead Halifax Poor’s Farm residents. Farther down the shore and a bit…

    • Easter 2019
      Amy filled some plastic eggs with goodies and I hid them around the living room for Ezra to go on a quick indoor Easter egg hunt before church on Easter Sunday, ending with a gift from grandpa and grandma: his first tricycle. He had a lot of fun with…

    • NS Art Gallery and Maud Lewis House
      Visited the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, where we saw the work of famed folk artist Maud Lewis. Her painted house sits in the gallery, where it was moved in 1998, so I got a panoramic interior shot. Also it’s worth noting that there’s a whole othe…

    • Pleasant Sunday at Point Pleasant Park
      Some shots from a short Sunday walk around Point Pleasant Park on the southern end of the Halifax peninsula. There’s a beach there, called Black Rock Beach, but they advise no swimming since it’s right near the Seaport and the water might be dirt…

    • Walking through Forest Hills
      It’s finally gotten warm enough to melt the snow and ice coating the paved walking paths that wind through Forest Hills in Cole Harbour, so it’s been nice to walk through the local woods to see the trees and lakes and little parks. There are plac…

    • Nova Scotia Sunrise Time Lapse
      Pointed a GoPro out an east-facing window to get a wintry Nova Scotia sunrise time lapse. (I’m cheating a bit with the sound on this one; the original time lapse video was silent, so to add ambience I snipped some audio from an older video and adde…
