away and back again

Since I broke my new challenge of posting on my blog everyday (already, I know), here are three photos instead of one to make up for the last few missed days.  We went to Halifax and back this past weekend.  Summer solstice, longest day of the year, happened on Saturday.  Full social weekend, lots of laughter and reconnecting with good friends.  We took the ferry to and from Nova Scotia (ferry terminal only a 15 minute drive from our home) and the ride back today was glorious and sunny.

Beautiful rolled up rope ladders, in case we need to evacuate the ferry....A few years back, I built a much simplified rope bridge for the Art in the Open Festival in Charlottetown.  Suspended between the roof tops of the Confederation Centre of the Arts downtown, it invited viewers to imagine accessing un-reachable spaces and views of our familiar urban landscape.  Ever since, I've always noticed rope ladders....

The bumper docks at the the ferry terminal in Caribou, Nova Scotia.  Good use of old tires.  If you look closely, you can see a momma and baby groundhog  in the green grass.

Pictou Island, suspended in the Northumberland Strait between P.E.I. and N.S.  People still live there, though not in the numbers they used to...
