Weekday Tourist

Some days it is incredibly handy to have a flexible job!  Since my friend Don’s visit was a bit unplanned, I didn’t specifically book any time off work…but when I found out he’d be hanging out here for a couple of days I immediately made time for us to do a little trip out to Peggy’s Cove!

I’ve been there like 5 times now, but I love it every time!!

Don and I were bestest pals the last few years of high school and on into his college days.  Silly boy ran off and got married and made children so we haven’t seen each other in ages.  He came to town on a work trip and managed to stay a few extra days to check out a couple of Halifax area sites and hang out.  Yay!

You can tell these photos were all taken with different settings, and I switched lenses part way through…for the non-lighthouse shots.  James Dean and I are finally getting to know each other a little better!

The self portrait at the end was taken on Don’s camera.  I look a little crazy…LOL.  It was freeeeeezing and windy!!!!

Hi Erica,

If you click the link to "James Dean" you can see my camera. I call it James Dean because it's a Canon Rebel. :)

I use both an 18-55 and a 50mm lens.

I am just learning!
