Bridgewater is ready for Christmas!

The Annual Christmas on the LaHave Parade and Fireworks is a sure sign to know that Bridgewater is ready for Christmas!

Every year we brave the cold, bundle up warm, and walk from our home to downtown to enjoy some local festivities. The last weekend of November…there’s just so much to do.

But this year David couldn’t do it! Even though he got in for a massage today and is feeling a little better, his back is still not quite good enough to walk a long distance and to stand in the cold.

James to the rescue! Thanks James for doing this with me!! All bundled up and ready to go.

… and Abby stayed home to keep David company.

I love the parade sponsored by the Chronicle Herald complete with red noses.

There were some really good floats!

New to Bridgewater’s festivities this year are 6 large hay bale snowman placed at various points around the town. They were donated by a local farmer and decorated by students from Bridgewater High School. It’s fun seeing their smiling faces as we are driving through town.

Well, The store fronts are decorated ( like this beautiful one at Treasured Friends) the lights are on and Bridgewater is ready for Christmas. There was a great crowd out for the parade and I’m sure everyone is in a festive mood.

I missed my sweetie tonight but made sure he had a red nose too!

It sure has been a fun filled couple days!

Hmm? I wonder if we will get snow tomorrow?ย โ„๏ธโ„๏ธ

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.
