Good-bye to Halifax, Nova Scotia...we're heading home...

In June we travelled by rail from Vancouver (British Columbia) to Montreal (Quebec) where we spent five nights. We then took an overnight train to Moncton (New Brunswick). Next we drove to Prince Edward Island, Cape Breton (Nova Scotia), and flew home from Halifax.

And a happy, healthy, new year to you and your loved ones, Irena. ❤️

P.S. Just finished clearing 25 cm of snow off the deck...and it's still coming down!

Thank you Faye. Our night was minus three degrees. During the day sunshine. By 2020 I wish you good health, happiness and smiles ♥ ☺ ♥

gemstone

Thank you very much, Irena. We are at my sister's in the middle of British Columbia right now. We had a lovely, quiet Christmas. It is about -20ºC at night but warms up to around -10 during the day. The neighbours have been clearing a huge ice rink on the lake and spraying it with water to smooth out the ice for the past four days. Right now there are about a dozen "kids"...my brother-in-law included...playing a hockey game! He will be sore tomorrow! LOL

I wish you a happy, healthy New Year, too! ❤️

Hi Faye, this is a very beautiful photo. I love the color of rhododendron. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I wish you good health by 2020!

gemstone

Thank you, Suzy...it was a great time for us, too...we really enjoyed our time with you and Jim...but definitely wish it had been longer! Still very cold here (-18ºC this morning) but the morning hub bub is over and it is a peaceful afternoon. Wishing you both a very happy day and a marvellous new year for 2020. ❤️❤️❤️

Thank you, Michelle, you're very welcome. I imagine your climate is probably too warm for rhodos...but you have so many other beautiful and unique plants. Faye :)))

MAGNIFICENT PIC AND PUZZLE thx for sharing xx love the colours - so so pretty ♥

They are a very "showy" plant, Marina. I was so surprised years ago when I discovered that they originated in the Himalayas. :)))

MarinaNephele

Wonderful fresh rhododendron flowers. I love them. Thanks. Marina.

gemstone

These were rhodos, Laura...really large...a bit late for us "westerners" but right on time for Halifax. ;)))

laurajane

Azaleas are such a favorite with me!

Thank YOU for journeying with us, Suzy, and for you and Jim taking the time to travel to Montreal...you added so much to our adventure! We really enjoyed meeting you...but would have liked to visit even longer!!! Perhaps if you're headed to PEI...??? ❤️❤️❤️

pumpkinhead

Thank you for taking us along on this early summer adventure, Faye and Ken! What fun it was to travel with you, to see places through your lens and to read your descriptions....to say nothing of a rousing time spent in Montreal!
You have convinced me to got back (ahhh.....it was only 2018 we were there!)!! Perhaps my ancestors can be found!!

A very long life 103, that is more than a few milestones. God Bless her and R.I.P.
Maybe in her next life . Take care.

gemstone

Bev, my London cousin who passed at 103 last year used to say, "When I win the pools!"...meaning the soccer pools where you bet a few pence and win a lot of pounds. I told her that she would have to buy a ticket first...but she dreamed of winning and having a guide to travel with and look after her every need. :))

That in the day I could walk miles and move quickly today it is a different story. I would love to see Quebec again. I remember going through neighborhoods (by car) and I think every window had beautiful lace curtains. :))

gemstone

Whistler, Jill...it was where the 2010 Winter Olympics were held in conjunction with Vancouver. You were lucky because I doubt that you would see that now...too dangerous. And most logs are either transported by huge trucks or are flown out by helicopter and dumped in the coastal waters where they are tied into booms and tugs pull them to the sawmill or pulp mill. We live on the Fraser River and there are still a few sawmills in the Lower Mainland so across from us log booms are tied up until the mill needs them. (Yesterday their was a bald-headed eagle sitting on the boom enjoying the sun!) When the tug comes to pick up the boom, you will see men walking on the booms getting it ready but they are back on the tug when it moves out. Once it is delivered to the mill on the other side of the river, little boom boats jockey the logs onto a conveyor belt that lift the logs out of the water and run them up to be debarked. Logging is a big part of Canada's history and today's economy.

I'm sorry the trip is over, too...but it has been great having such lovely travelling companions as you. Take care. Blessings ❤️❤️❤️

JillianB

Eeek Thank you FAYE. So sorry put the wrong name but didn't feel like retyping that big comment!

JillianB

Beautiful. So sad that the journey is over it has been so lovely seeing more of Canada. My story: When I was little I loved looking through the postcards that my Dad had sent from Canada to my mum during the war. Especially loved the one that had men 'riding' on tree trunks down the river. In 1999 we had some time in Canada and when travelling by bus from Vancouver up to Whistle? we travelled over a bridge and I looked at the river and to my huge delight there were logs being 'ridden' down. I was so excited I exclaimed loudly "look, look at the logs" everyone in the bus did look - but at me with big smiles on their faces. Think I blushed. Thanks Suzy

gemstone

You'll have to return, Bev, and allow them to redeem themselves. :)))

Thank you, Kenzie, we did. The Maritimes are a lovely place to visit...and the people are terrific! :)))

What lovely flowers. You must have had a wonderful trip.

@gemstone
Your story brought to mind another time for me. I was a clerk at "Walgreen's Pharmacy" and as I was stocking a representative for the products "Neutrogena Company". He introduced himself as John Papillon. I smiled and said, you are kidding. He then presented his card and sure enough his name was Papillon. I said, I did learn that word in Quebec. I told him my woe of the folks in Quebec and would you believe he too, apologized for them. I thought that was admirable. I sure would have liked to have been with Jeanette that day. I loved that she could defend herself correctly.

gemstone

And, as ever, you have been the perfect travelling companion, Ardy...so glad you were along on the journey with us. Guess we'll have to take another trip, right? ;DDD
Looking forward to your next collage. ❤️❤️❤️

ringleader

Faye, is this really the end? I'm sorry. I've enjoyed traveling with you and hubby so much. Thank you, dear friend. Especially thankful for the beautiful flowers. Another collage will be ready for tomorrow. It's almost done now. Now I have two more flowers to add to my collection. Blessings. ♥♥♥

gemstone

Even the transport trucks, the dump trucks, the front end loader...across the river from us don't start with their beep beeps until 6:45. I fully understand your sleep deprivation. ;)))

JM_Cookie

You are most welcome to come in my garden and take pics, sorry if I was a bit short, we have not been getting our sleep.
The chowdren will welcome you with sloppy kisses and tail wags.
I will supply the cookies, snacks and coffee, stop by any time, I am always here.

gemstone

csarmientoj...You are very welcome...it was my pleasure to share our adventure. Thank you for joining us...and thank you for taking the time to comment. Faye :)))

Hi, Mr. Biscuit...no, I wasn't trespassing...the raindrops on my blossoms prove that...besides if I did "visit", it would be to see the puppies! LOL ;DDD

Thank you, Hanne. ❤️❤️❤️

I'm glad you joined us, Bev....and I thoroughly understand your experience way back when. It was common knowledge that English was not welcome then. I worked with a woman who was born and raised in Quebec and who returned to visit her parents. She was in a boutique as a tourist tried to purchase an item and was struggling. The clerk was not only indifferent to her difficulties but berated her in French to another clerk. They didn't realize that my friend was a "local". Jeanette tore a strip off the clerk...in French. Fortunately, now, the tourist dollar packs a lot of power and that attitude has basically disappeared among the business community. ❤️

I did absolutely enjoy your journey!!!

What a marvelous vacation!!
My husband and I and my son and my mom, drove from Indiana to Quebec. We spent a night, I forget where and then onto Q. My mom's cousin was quite ill and we wanted to see her before she passed. It was a very nice trip, but it was a time when Quebec French were being uppity and did not want to be part of Canada. They refused to speak English and we knew they could. They were very rude and I felt so bad. When we returned home my mom wrote a letter to her cousin and told her how rude they were and her cousin apologized for them. Can you imagine that. This was back in the 1980's ...We did not need a passport then. You just drove over the border and answered a few questions and that was that. Gone are those days. Thank you for listening and reading Bev.
