Used my flight benefits to fly down to spend some time with my Father in Nova Scotia. This short film covers my first couple of days from flying down on Air Canada to heading down towards Yarmouth and doing a little exploring around to catch up with family and visit the ocean.

Going forward for the rest of November will be a shorter film that covers the month. I’m going to see how this evolving project goes forward with the structure.
You can view all the videos here.
Third video covers flying back from Nova Scotia and basically just working for the month to close it off with a couple of sweet moments.
When living on Kings Crescent in Ajax and having my parents visiting with us from Nova Scotia… I snapped some pictures on the weekend with everyone over on the front porch just hanging out.
Chantal was small then. Noah was not born or thought of and my Mother was still with us. Such a cute little house that I miss. I miss that porch and backing onto the park behind us.
Many days… I think about my Mom. Everyone has one. Just some are not with us any more…
This was snapped from a photo album found at my Dad’s in Nova Scotia. I actually don’t remember my mother looking like this.
My Mother is on the left and her Sister (Aunt Bea) is in the middle and Jannette is on the right. My Mom and her sisters used to travel for a girls weekend to PEI back in the old days.
Another older picture of my Mom with a ciggy. She quit with my Dad when I was around 10ish.
A photo of my Mom and myself and Pat playing cards in the motorhome while camping.
