Share Your World 2015 – Week 31

It has been a while since I played along but since I’m trying to ease back into a semi-regular posting routine here are my answers to Cee’s weekly prompt: Share Your World – Week 31

Would you rather take pictures or be in pictures?

I like to joke that I have a face that’s just perfect for radio, so I generally prefer to take pictures rather than be in them.

Where do you like to vacation?

As long as I’m on vacation with my Honey, it could be just about anywhere. However if I look at our trips over the years, the one place we’ve gone back to most often is Nova Scotia.

Aside from the fact that I have a dear childhood friend who now lives near Halifax, I just love maritime hospitality. Plus there’s so much beautiful coastal scenery to explore and photograph, I don’t think I’ll ever tire of going there. Would you?

If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be?

For a typical day at work? Bumpy road ahead 🙂

List at least five favorite first names.

For boys: Nathan, Ward, James, Tyler, Logan

For Girls: Cheryl, Brooke, Angela, Faith, Stephania

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

After a hectic and very hot business trip the week before in Las Vegas, I really appreciated having a week of actual vacation last week. We took it easy and spent a few days off doing touristy things on a little road trip to the Gatineau region of south-western Quebec, just north of Ottawa.

In the town of Wakefield we discovered a great old mill that had been converted into an Inn with an amazing restaurant.

We also found a B & B in a lovely century-old Victorian home.

We visited Parliament Hill in Ottawa, which I haven’t done since a grade five field trip, QUITE a few years ago.

I also got lots of great shots to use for upcoming posts, and yes, perhaps even a few more doors 😉

This week is about slowly easing back into a regular work/life routine. I can’t say I’m actually looking forward to it, but at least I’m enjoying being able to sleep in a little later due to the lighter rush hour summer traffic.

As always, thank you for reading 🙂

    I love the Maritimes, too! I just met the sweetest couple from Nfld (partners for my business) last week at the conference I was attending in NOLA, so I now have an excuse to travel to St. Johns. Nfld is the only atlantic province I haven’t visited yet – and I’m itching to get there! …Now, to figure out that accent so I can actually respond to what they are saying to me. 🙂

      Newfoundland is the only Canadian province I haven’t visited yet either. The accent isn’t that bad, to me anyway. I have a tougher time with Acadians who speak in French. The vocabulary, pronunciation, and cadence mess me up so bad, I’m constantly asking them to repeat – most get fed up and politely switch to English – but hey, I try 😀
