WorldWide WordPress 5k 2020

Today starts a month long virtual event for the WorldWide WordPress 5k 2020, organized by some of my colleagues. On top of getting out active with others, virtually, there is also a cool charity aspect where you can donate and have a matching donation made. Checkout the post linked above for more details. I’ve slackedContinue reading “WorldWide WordPress 5k 2020”

Long exposure iPhone photos

This isn’t anything new, but it was new to me. In fact I believe it has been around since iOS11 which came out about three years ago. Lately we’ve been doing lots of trails and that involve water of some sort and I’ve found myself wishing that I took our dSLR camera with us soContinue reading “Long exposure iPhone photos”

Staycation Scavenger Crawl

Like many people our original plans for this summer have drastically changed. We were going to use my Sabbatical from work to spend time in Alberta visiting family.

Biking the Harvest Moon Trail

Since I started trying to get back into biking a few years back I had thought it would be cool to bike the whole Harvest Moon trail. Its an old railbed that’s been converted to a trail going between Grand Pre and Annapolis Royal here in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. It’s 110 kmContinue reading “Biking the Harvest Moon Trail”

Baxters Harbour

We went to check out Baxters Harbour today. It has been a long time since I’d been there and most of the family hadn’t been there before. It’s beautiful and really cool with the waterfall and the rock formations. Things can change quite a bit depending on the tide but being here at low tideContinue reading “Baxters Harbour”
