Any day that ends like this is a great day!!!  The rain blew out and we had a blue sky puffy cloud day which worked well for boats and light houses!  Our last stop was one of the best sunset Ive seen in along, long time!  Really enjoying this side trip and anxious to join our group tomorrow night to start our exploration of Nova Scotia!  Here are some of my favorites from day two!

 

 

So another day in a beautiful place!  More soon!

 

Blessings,

After a day of rain, mist and cold wind, (which still allowed some great shooting) we were rewarded with clearing skies and a nice sunset!  Today was a chance to prove that even when conditions are awful you can find wonderful subject that can work under those conditions!  Here are some of my favorites from today.

 

 

Maybe wet, and maybe cold, but happy campers!!!

I would never go to the airport, any airport to get a great meal, especially a great burger!!!!!  I stand corrected!  Jim and I had a two hour lay over, and an hour on the plane on the way to Halifax today. I spotted a Shake Shack, (one of my very favorite chain burgers in all the land!)  Of course this is JFK airport and the chances it would be anything like the ones from down in New York City was slim and none, right?  Nope, Lydia Gonzalez, manager and fry cook, Kaheem Evans served up a 5.1 pickle scale killer burger, I mean one of the very best I’ve ever tasted, and you guys know I’ve tasted a few!  Actually thousands!!!

 

Seriously this was one for the ages, perfectly fried, juicy, made to my absolute best specifications!  I only hope that Sunday a week they will be frying when we slide back through JFK on the way home, even if they are not, great job guys!  Join the Burger Hall of Fame, as of this evening you are the number one burger in America!  Check on the Cheeseburgers in Paradise blog !

 

Thanks too for starting our tour off with such  great meal!!!!

Friday morning Jim Begley and I fly up to Halifax, to join Snake and group of friends to tour Prince Edward Island, and then join the rest of our group in Halifax to do our tour of Nova Scotia. I love this region of Canada, and the people are friendly and helpful.  We have a local photographer, Kevin Finch, who is not only a good shooter, but really knows the country!  We will be shooting the culture, the ports and fishing communities and the beautiful coast!

 

I will be in planes all day Friday, but hope to have internet service in the evenings and will blog as much as I can.  Wish you were going with us!

 

By-the-way, I spoke to SNAP (Southern Appalachian Nature Photographers) in Knoxville, Tennessee last night and we had a great time, love those folks,  it’s a great club!

 

Stay tuned!
