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!
