Tranquil time away, mostly for business. I managed to squeeze in a few hours to reconnect with a high school classmate.
The last time Cathy and I saw each other, our eldest children were in diapers. Now they are preparing for junior high school. Cathy and I laughed over our own high school shenanigans. We shared our dreams for our children.
Our reunion in Halifax showed us that friendship knows neither time nor distance.
For a few glorious days, I didn't need to feed anyone but myself. Food tastes so much better when it's prepared, presented and cleared away by someone else.

Cathy took me to a restaurant whose motto is "delishes fishes dishes." They should add "ginormous." McKelvie's serves up a monstrous Crunchy Haddock. I think the crunch comes from seasoned corn flakes.

The crisp Atlantic air and our warm reunion did me a load of good.
Halifax, I'll be back.
