Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
– Mark Twain I took these pictures by the port of Fisherman’s Wharf in The World Famous Scallop Port of Digby, Nova Scotia. Our adventures were rewarded by the world famous Digby scallops.
Big or small, enjoy your adventures this weekend!
“For this week’s challenge, share with us your own take on zigging and zagging.”
This picture was taken in one of the wealthy merchants’ homes in the Fortress of Louisbourg, in Canada during our summer vacation last year. Thanks to the efforts of the archaeologists and the work of Parks Canada and the Fortress Louisbourg Association, we were able to experience life in Louisbourg during its heyday. During the summer months hundreds of re-enactors or “animators” of all ages, from wealthy merchants to poor soldiers, populate the streets of the restored fortress working, playing, and living life as they would have in 1744.
The actor who played a servant’s role in the house educated us about this art. She explained that the lady who worked on this tapestry had to know how to read and count in order to make this beautiful art.
“Utopia is on the horizon. I move two steps closer; it moves two steps further away. I walk another ten steps and the horizon runs ten steps further away. As much as I may walk, I’ll never reach it. So what’s the point of utopia? The point is this: to keep walking.”
Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the week!
