Pirates! Lunenburg! More pirates!

Pirates, pirates and more pirates. Also sailboats (without pirates), birthday parties, the launch of Lunenburg Ales, and stormy skies. And… I read a lot of books and worked on a couple of chapters, but there aren’t any fun pictures for those.

Putt-putt races (so-named because the boats putt putt putt along)

It was a beautiful afternoon, so Tim and I decided to go sailing.

Out of my way boys, I’ve got this!

Ahoy ahoy.

I told Lucy this was her new house, and she immediately asked when we were going to move in. Unfortunately I think someone else already lives there….

Sampling the first batch of home-brewed Lunenburg Ale (Duncan and Tim’s future money-making move to the South shore plan). Huge success! Nobody keeled over and it tasted pretty good!

I went to Halifax again to play derby, but we got there early enough to do the bridge walk. It’s exactly like it sounds – one day a year, Halifax closes one of the bridges and everyone walks across it. There were crazy stormy skies, but somehow we managed to avoid all of the rain and thunder.
