Postcard #3: Changing Provinces


Today we drove across that marvel of engineering - the Confederation Bridge. Sliced through a few miles of New Brunswick and into Nova Scotia. 

Forests of green - dark evergreens, pale yellow green of new leaves uncurling in the sunshine, fresh, clear green. The variety of that single color gives just a hint of the splendor that would be autumn here. 

Halifax Public Garden - our little taste of the city late this afternoon. Tulips, magnolias, rhododendrons. I stick my nose into every lilac bush, reveling in the enjoyment of my second spring within a couple of months. Long tendrils of new leaves drape over the fountains. 

More to explore tomorrow.

I'm enjoying these snippets of your travel adventures. I wonder if Cape Breton and the Cabot Trail will be part of your Nova Scotia trip.

Lovely to see sunshine for your travel into Nova Scotia Lorrie - wondering if you'll drive the beautiful Cabot Trail. I can almost smell the lilacs from here!

Enjoy the moments.
