Monday Night - The Speed Of Light

Andy | Monday, September 26, 2016 | Best Blogger Tips
Not the best of shots but I was having fun. A 20 second shutter speed taken just as a bus and cars passed by. Looking at the grass and the sidewalk you can see the trail of a red flashing tail light from a bicycle that was moving away from me.

Today is the date when the sun crosses the celestial equator and when day and night are of equal length. Otherwise summer is over and it is the first day of autumn. It still feels more like summer but  seasonal temperatures are forecast  on the weekend.

Tall Ship

Andy | Wednesday, September 07, 2016 | Best Blogger Tips
The original Bluenose was launched as a Grand Banks fishing and racing schooner on 26 March 1921 in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. The ship pictured here is the Bluenose II a replica of the original. From the moment Bluenose took to the sea, it was evident she was a vessel unlike any other. When she took home her first Fishermen's Trophy in October of 1921, the legend began. During the next 17 years, no challenger American or Canadian could wrest the trophy from Bluenose. She earned the title "Queen of the North Atlantic" and was well on her way to becoming a Canadian icon.

The majestic image of the Bluenose has adorned the Canadian dime since 1937 and three postage stamps, as well as the Nova Scotia license plate. In 1963, Bluenose II was launched. It was built by many of the same people who had worked on the original vessel at the same shipyard in Lunenburg. The project was financed by Oland Brewery to advertise their products, while also promoting Nova Scotia's maritime heritage and tourism. William Roué, the designer of the original Bluenose, endorsed the vessel. Captain Walters sailed on the maiden voyage.

The Mission: To continuously promote the history and legacy of Bluenose and Bluenose II as well as the rich past and present of Lunenburg and Atlantic Canada. To teach and promote seamanship and life skills in young Canadians through the opportunity of serving on board Bluenose II. To operate Bluenose II in a safe and efficient manner so that all Canadians may be proud. To maintain and ensure Bluenose II will serve as a sailing ambassador for Lunenburg, the Province of Nova Scotia and Canada.

When I post a photo of pay phones I am surprised that people comment that in their part of the world the phones are either nonexistence or rare. I want everyone to know that they are still alive & well here in Canada. These two standing side by side are bit gringy but still in working order.

Between Shifts

Hospital worker. 
Today is Labour Day in Canada. It is celebrated on the first Monday of September and it is a federal statutory holiday. The origins of Labour day in Canada can be traced back to a printer's revolt in 1872 in Toronto, when labourers tried to establish a maximum 54 hour work week. At that time, any union activity was considered illegal and the organizers were jailed. Protest marches of over 10,000 formed in response. This eventually led to the Prime Minister Sir John A. MacDonald repealing the anti union laws and arranging the release of the organizers as well.

Peggy's Cove Lighthouse

Andy | Friday, September 02, 2016 | Best Blogger Tips
The lighthouse is an iconic tourist attraction. While best known as "Peggy's Cove Lighthouse", it was and remains, officially know as the Peggy's Point Lighthouse as its purpose is to mark the point, not the cove.

It was decided in 1868 to erect a wooden lighthouse to mark the eastern entrance to St. Margaret's Bay. The wooden tower was replaced in 1915 with the present day concrete octagon 50 feet west of the original light.

The ground floor of the lighthouse, until 2009, operated as a post office where visitors could mail their postcards in the summer months. Yup... that's my wife leaning on the rock.
