HeLLo Autumn!

Well…TODAY is the first day officially of the Fall season.

hello-autumnAfter the autumnal equinox, the days get shorter and the nights get longer. Traditionally it signified when the farmers bought in the harvest, which perhaps explains why the full moon nearest the equinox is often called the harvest moon.

This week, the days feel like Fall. Warm during the day and cool nights. Yesterday the most interesting phenomena appeared in the sky and lasted a few hours. A circle around the sun. Of course me being curious, I googled it!

Also known as a 22 degree halo or a sun halo, the ring is caused by sunlight passing through ice crystals in cirrus clouds within the Earth’s atmosphere, The crystals bend direct sunlight, projecting it elsewhere into the sky, and at a certain angle , 22 degrees — and a halo can be seen around the sun.

The days of summer are over!! And it’s getting cool/cold. So happy we spent yesterday morning at the beach…for breakfast.

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.
