Family photo - Tiverton, Long Island.
For the past two weekends, Cale and I have been on our own, without a vehicle. Don’t get me wrong, of all the places to be stuck, Annapolis Royal is a pretty great place to be, and for a 3 year old, Caleb is quite a wonderful companion, however, I was very excited to have some visitors over the long weekend.

Not only did my parents come to town for a few nights, a good friend from Halifax also visited for a night with her husband and 4 year old daughter. This meant Caleb had his first ever friend sleepover. The company was great and the kids were adorable.
 On Monday, Alan came home in time to join us for the ultimate Bay of Fundy adventure –whale watching! We boarded a fishing boat in Tiverton, Long Island and hit the open water. Three hours later we had encountered 7 humpback whales and several dolphins. Watching the whales slowly breach the surface beside the boat then flash their giant tails before diving below again…it was breathtaking.  I’m not sure if Caleb could grasp just how enormous the animals were, but he loved the experience and stayed interested for the whole journey. Driving back home, it was fun to look in the backseat and see Cale, snuggled between Greg and Linda, all three of them sound asleep.

Fake whale spotting!
