I don’t know about you, but I feel like there is something so peaceful about being near bodies of water. I grew up with a view of the river, and the Bay of Fundy close by. But I think I kind of took it for granted, until I moved to a new city where I didn’t know where “my water” was. Since moving, I have made it my mission to travel the coast and find a spot that makes my heart feel full! When I look at the ocean, I can’t help but be thankful for the beautiful places God has created for us to see! I’m not an outdoorsy person, but the ocean is the type of outdoors I can handle.
One of the most recent trips I took was to the little coastal towns of Mahone Bay and Lunenburg. Penny and I really enjoyed discovering all of the little shops, and I think I stopped at least 10 times at little beaches along the way home!
Did you know that wherever you are in Nova Scotia, you’re never more than 67 kilometres from the sea? Now that’s a statistic that I like to see (sea?)!
What’s your favourite happy place? Let me know!
Howdy! Look at me, I'm on a roll!
I mentioned in my first post that I was going to keep my location secret for privacy reasons. But a lot of the post ideas I've had involve different places around the city, which would definitely give it away! So I have added a map at the bottom of my page of the best little city there is, Halifax, Nova Scotia! ❤
Now, on to our topic, the love of my life! This is my puppy, Penny.
Penny is my 1.5 year old Shih Tzu, and we've been through a lot together! She moved with me into my first apartment back home, and then made the big trip with me to Halifax. And let me tell you, she loves it here!
I think some people would disagree, but this city is actually really dog friendly. There are a lot of stores that allow dogs inside now, and we go shopping all the time! So far we have tried out Canadian Tire and HomeSense, and looking forward to checking out Chapters and Michael's!
Penny can be a vicious creature sometimes, but I wouldn't have it any other way! I've definitely learned a lot of lessons since she came into my life! Tell me about your pets in the comments!
Until next time,
