The Voice of the Sea Speaks to the Soul

Today was our Preparation day. The morning was spent with Laurence clearing out the
last of our ice so we can now use our front door. YAY!! Life is easier now!!
The snow is melting so quickly! It is shocking to me.
I love finding out what is under this white wonderland!!
After this we took Elder & Sister Wood shopping. Followed by a trip to a thrift store for me.
I didn't find anything, but sure enjoy the search!!

A trip to the harbour followed the thrift store.
I'm thinking the sign should read more like,
no parking here..... haha!!

We went to Eastern Passage. It is located at the southeastern edge of Halifax Harbour,
fronting the Atlantic Ocean, Eastern Passage derives its name from the narrow strait
separating the mainland from McNabs Island and Lawlor Island, both of which lie
several hundred metres west of the community. This "Eastern Passage" into the
harbour is not the main shipping channel due to its shallow depths;
the main shipping channel lies west of McNabs Island.
The Eastern Passage is largely used by small recreational boats and fishing vessels
during inclement weather as the island affords shelter from prevailing winds.

Fisherman's Cove at Eastern Passage.
The smell of the salt water, the colorful boats, the lobster traps....

St. Andrew's "By the Sea" Roman Catholic Church. It was built in 1926,
replacing an already existing smaller church that was about 80-85 years old.
