What Mom Saw

Hi! Georgia again. On Monday, I said that Mom would share
some pictures she took on Saturday when it was really foggy.
Most are interesting for your beans, but I think you kitties 
 and woofies will like the last ones ;)

This is a pilot ship in Halifax harbour.It is backing out from the dock.
Maybe it is going in search of the sun!

 These old buildings are fading away in the fog. The building with 
the spire is called The Khyber . It was built in 1888 as
The Church of England Institute.After many tenants over the years,
 it is now a multipurpose art centre.

  Mom,her sister and her sister's hubby(B-I-L) then went  to the 
Halterm Container Terminal. They recently finished  a new dock
that can handle very BIG ships (  post-Panamax). You can see
how BIG the cranes are. The crane is next to a trailer from an 
18 wheeler. As the port was quiet this day Mom said  the crane 
was filled  with hundreds of birds and they were very loud!
She didn't even bring some home!!

 Here is Mom's b-i-l posing with the crane to  give some scale.
It is almost fading into the fog! On the right of the picture
you can see some big  rocks, and beyond the rocks is the harbour!

 The best part of Mom's trip was this big bird. It is a 
heron and it was fishing for dinner as it was about 6:30 PM
when Mom took this picture.

Mom said he was 3 times as big as me!!
Still, she could have brought it home...right?

I hope you enjoyed the foggy pictures. It is sunny today,
but the rain will be back tomorrow.
Well, I think I will go have a nap and dream about big birds!

Wow, that bird would have been dinner for the week!

We love the buildings in the fog--that is just so cool! And yes I bet that bird will feed you for awhile--oh wait--she didn't bring it home for you?!

Great pics, pretty Georgia. We think that bird was prolly on the lean side. Tell Mom to get a bird wif more meat on its bones. MOL!

Very interesting and mysterious photos.

I especially love the wading bird!

Pet lovers please check out my homeless cat blog archives for some informative posts and stories about the cat abandoned/feral colony I manage.

Brrrr, to our tropical eyes it looks COLD! But we'd like to meet that bird.

Hi Georgia! I don't think I've ever seen fog. My mom has, though. Pretty interesting!

So, hundreds of birds and not a one for you? What is up with that?

Karen Jo said...

Mom loves the fog pictures. Spyro wants to chase the big bird. As for me, pictures like this make me glad I'm and inside cat.

We hope you got a taste or two of that big birdie.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

We surely did like those pictures very much! We can't believe that your mom didn't bring that bird home for you!

Those were some fabulous pictures your Mom got! Wow we enjoyed them, but we bet the birdie would be fun to chase.

The fog can be quite pretty - we're of course used to thick fog rolling in around here. We like it. It can be a bit cold, but not bad if there isn't much wind.

The old buildings and crane are cool, too.
