Splash Truck

The rain storm ended hours earlier but the fields continued draining water across the road. Cars came to a complete stop and inched through the water. None of the trucks slowed down for the water and this pickup truck pulling a horse trailer was no exception. Splash on cowboy!

Soccer Geese

With the 3 inches of rain and the soccer fields under water the geese decided to take over the fields. I had the wrong lens on the camera to get a good picture of the geese. The high ground was in short supply and this was as close as I could get to the geese without getting my feet soaked. Tomorrow you'll see why it was worth getting my feet wet.

Left at fence

Go too fast, brake too hard and the leaves will slide your bike sideways into the fence.

Net crossing

Team 10 tackles the net crossing in an Adventure Race. The team was handed a paper with instructions to carry a bucket across the net. The bucket was full of walnuts and sitting next to a bin of walnuts. One team member asked the official is she could remove some of the walnuts from the bucket. The official said "yes." Then the team member asked if all the walnuts could be removed from the bucket? Again the official said "yes." It paid to ask questions ... all the other teams I watched carried the full bucket across the net.

Web knot

I'm not sure why the farmer tied the twine into this knot but the spider found it useful.

Cool treat

A cool treat on a hot day. Sadly the warm days of summer and the Indian summer temperatures are behind us. I'm see a mug of hot cider in my future.

Colorful Seamus Kennedy

A very colorful Seamus Kennedy entertains the crowd. I wonder if he got dressed in the dark, his ensemble pretty much covered every color in the rainbow. Seamus is one of the popular singers at the Celtic Classic.

Singing in the rain

Boys and girls from the McDade School of Dance put on a show for the crowd at the Celtic Classic. For this dance they used umbrellas and rain coats for a rendition of singing in the rain.

Another lunch at the Valley Forge park, another day taking pictures of the radio controlled airplanes. This picture looks fake, like I posed the plane in front of wallpaper with clouds but this plane was flying at the park.

Busted myths

I managed to sneak up on this leprechaun and to my amazement the Loch Ness Monster appeared out of nowhere. I was so dazed and confused the leprechaun escaped with his pot of gold.

Falconer and falcon

A falconer put on a demonstration with two of his falcons but the demonstration didn't go as planned. He let the falcons free and they flew to a nearby tree where they spotted a couple of squirrels. The falconer was not able to call off the hunt.

Falcons 2
Squirrels 0

Mahone Bay pier

Mahone Bay pier

We took a bike ride around Mahone Bay and then kayaked across the bay to our starting point. A common theme in Nova Scotia is the Adirondack chairs painted in different colors.
