Spring two days running….

 

Today’s minor miracle was the confluence of sunshine with a day off.  Most businesses are closed, this is the first of four straight days I have to get non-work work done, and so there was ample reason to just be outside.  Having talked with Carole last night, and knowing she is always interested in seeing places she may or may not have been, I took my camera along and am now going to share some pcitures that are in no way stunning, just ordinary street views from the neighbourhood:

    I remember a trip back home to NS one year at St. Jean Baptiste weekend – June 24 – and it was freezing. Not to put a damper on your weather expectations but Spring in NS tends to be rather late in the year but glorious when it does come.
