…and if the wind is right you can sail away…

…Sailing…take me away ⛵

It’s race weekend!

This has been the biggest week of the summer for sailing enthusiasts in Nova Scotia.

Chester Race Week is Canada’s largest annual keel boat regatta and the little South Shore village of Chester is bursting with thousands of participants and onlookers from all along the Eastern seaboard and Europe.

Pictures in the local paper and on news links for the event are amazing!!! Of course, you NEED to be in a boat and on the water if you want to capture these kind of photos. Here are two from Tim Wilkes the event photographer. I even think you can purchase prints of various event photos and particular boats if you’re wanting to add to a collection.(Photos here used from local media)

Even though we weren’t on the water sailing we enjoyed a lovely lunch on the waterfront at the yacht club. It was a perfect day for the event.

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
