Anniversary Celebrations (part 1)

In Sites and Sounds on May 7, 2010 at 2:07 pm

My parent’s celebrated their 25th Wedding Anniversary on the 27th of April and decided to spend the occasion in Nova Scotia. Here are a few snap shots of what they (and us) got up to…

Exploring Card Lake – whilst trying to avoid the rain.

“Enjoying” (it wasn’t very good) a cup of coffee at the Westin Hotel in Halifax before heading out for dinner and to see a Johnny Cash Tribute Band at the Paragon Theatre.

Us at the Paragon Theatre. It’s a shame that the performers didn’t quite live up to our expectations.

Dad’s favorite spot when we weren’t “out and about”.

Mum sees if she measures up!

The sun is shining! The weather has been a little temperamental recently. However, the sun has decided to make an appearance today so we’re off out for a bit. More pictures to follow…

Anniversary Weekend

In My day to day on September 8, 2009 at 9:30 am

The weekend just past (5th September) was our very first wedding anniversary. Our parents and granny, were very kind and gave us some money towards a weekend away (thank you!).

We left Lunenburg bright and early and headed first to the mall at Halifax. New outfit was purchased and we snacked on pretzels (hot, buttery and salty – delicious)! We passed the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and couldn’t resist purchasing a few chocolates…

We checked in to the hotel…

Cameron had bought me some champagne as an anniversary present so we decided to pop it on ice and let it chill whilst we went for a swim…

Dinner on the Deck

Last Wednesday, Cameron and I realized that we’d been together for 5 years! We’ve lived together for 4 years and 2 months of that and have so far managed 9 months of marriage (Cameron has just told me it feels like 9 years – charming!) Thinking this quite an achievement (and a good excuse) we decided we’d cook something special for dinner at the weekend.

I love Tapas and vote for it for any special occasion dinner. However, Cameron wanted lobster especially since they are ridiculously cheap at the moment only $4.99 per lb (approx £3 per lobster). We decided to combine the two and settled on a dinner of lobster with melted coriander (or cilantro in Canada) butter, chorizo fried in red wine, tumeric infused rice and peas and fresh crusty bread from the farmer’s market.

All washed down with a bottle of wine or two…. Yummy!
