The written word has been an essential aspect of day-to-day life ever since I learned to "read" by memorizing the Dr. Seuss classic Green Eggs and Ham as my Dad read it to me over and over (and over). But the written word is more than just books! It's also recipes, signs, letters and cards, e-mail, text messages, hashtags and more. This post shares five examples of day-to-day encounters with the written word in August 2019.
With just two days allocated to Halifax and the surrounding area, we planned two night photography outings to make the most of our limited time: Halifax Harbour and the Halifax Explosion Memorial Bell Tower.
This month marked our first major vacation since our family trip to Iceland in 2015. And our Atlantic Canada itinerary included plenty of National Historic Sites, National Parks and other truly Canadian experiences. Returning home late on July 30th allows just enough time to select and share five photographs for this month's photo blogging challenge theme: patriotic.
Making time every day to get out and play is essential to my physical and mental well-being. And while I'm all for hitting epic trails as often as possible, a dose of nearby nature does the trick most days.
