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!

Daily Journal 6 – Reflecting at Lake Banook 

It was the end of one of the most frenetic weeks I’ve ever experienced. A situation that happened to a loved one put me in the position to take full control and fix it as quickly as possible.

This challenge left me feeling purely exhausted. I didn’t feel like doing much, but I decided to meet up with a friend for something low key and relaxing. We ended up at the lake. We reflected on the chaos that just happened whilst sitting in the rain. 

Then came the sun…

I guess it’s important to remember that there’s always sunshine after the rain. Life will always have storms, but we push through, and the sun will reappear. 

Daily Journal 5 – Some Place Old Something New 

The plan was a picnic in the gazebo at the Dartmouth Commons. It started out well, but the wind picked up and we ended up eating our hair!

We packed up and headed back to the car. On our way back we took one of the many paths and we came across this cute wooden house built on the tree. 

There’s something new to discover even at a place you’ve been countless times! 

Wanderlust Journal 13 – Lake Micmac 

My longtime friend from school invited me to go boating. It was so much fun! 


There is a bridge that separates Lake Banook from Lake Micmac. Under the bridge is a gang of pigeons. So, should you ever go there, cover your head! 

We decided we were going to explore one of the islands on the Lake. 

The Island was mostly a small forest in the middle of the lake. It was pretty easy to walk around, with nice views. 



One last shot before leaving the island on the lake in the middle of the city.
