As I walked around my neighbourhood this morning, I thought about all of you who live in big cities (compared to my home town, Halifax and the rest of HRM is a big city, but it's not THAT big - I still run into people I know on the street). I'm an incredibly fortunate person to be able to enjoy such a nice neighbourhood. But please, feel free to come back in February when I'm bitching about the amount of snow I have to shovel, and remind me about this post, K?
I took this photo from the top of the Dartmouth Commons, a lovely park, just about 500 yards from my front door. This is the Halifax waterfront. The photo quality isn't the best (hello, 2.0megapixels, shockin' I tell ya, it's shockin'), but it's pretty. Moe lives over there... somewhere.
This is a little flower bed at the edge of the Dartmouth Commons. The flowers were catching the sunlight this morning. It reminds me of The Secret Garden (one of my all time favorite books).
These are my neighbour's grapes.
They grow on the fence at the back of my yard. My dog (who is now in doggy heaven) used to jump up on the stone wall at the back of our yard and eat these grapes when they fell off the vines. He would come inside smelling like fermented grapes.
This is where Andrew and I went for "breakfast" yesterday.
Ang? If you still lived here, this is where we would go instead of that expensive place we used to visit. It's Starr's Bakery and Cafe on Portland street in Dartmouth. They make great lattes and sticky buns. YUM! They would definitely love Minou in there.
And Finally, this is for Cassie
It isn't so much that the door is orange, but that the entire front of the building is orange with those great round windows. I cut off a "Sun" on the sign. It's actually the Sun Sun Cafe.
That's all. Gotta run. Have a great day everyone.
