Sullivan’s Pond 

An evening walk around Sullivan’s Pond; a pond I’ve walked around so many times; a pond I once fell in after being bitten by the famous geese that live here. Ah memories!

This place has the most beautiful flowers.

This is Pekoe. Pekoe cat has been hanging around this area for years; I thought the ducks would be bothered by Pekoe getting a drink, but they didn’t care at all!

The geese are such a part of our lives here. When I say our, I mean the locals; there is so much love for them from the community.

Even though it was these geese who bit me, (causing me to fall in the pond, leaving my father in tears from laughter while I cried in my soaked jeans) and even though they still sometimes follow and I fear they will bite me, I too love them.

Such good memories while walking around this pond. I laugh every time I see the spot I fell in. I love it here. This classic part of our city!

Wanderlust Journal 20 – Halifax Public Gardens 

About once a year we visit the Halifax Public Gardens. We like to see the newly planted flowers and just see if there’s any overall changes.

Like this hidden house we found.

Or one of the “play me” Halifax pianos.

We discovered a hidden bird.

My mom asked me to take a picture of the pretty flowers; she wanted a pink one in particular. I just happened to catch an ant on one of the petals.

I look forward to going next year as I’ve found myself taking more of an interest in plants and flowers.

Wanderlust Journal 19 – Salt Marsh Trail Fall Hike 

I made some major changes to my life in 2017; I quit my job in February, then enrolled in college and got myself a part time job on the weekends. I never have a day off so to find time to do my favorite things like hiking has been difficult. After going 7 days a week for over a month I finally found a day to go for a hike!

I thought there would be no better place than the Salt Marsh Trail to take in the change of season.



Shades of green, yellow and red.

The apples on the tree were impossible to reach!

Fall feelings…

There’s an entrance to this trail from Lawrencetown town which I have not done yet, I think I’ll head there soon!
