I took a redeye flight from Phoenix to Newark, NJ, where I connected to a flight to Halifax, Nova Scotia, arriving at noon Atlantic time.  I am staying tonight with the Companions of the Cross community in Herring Bay, just outside the city.  It's a quaint little town that clings to the sides of a small inlet that opens into the Atlantic just a couple hundred yards (I mean, meters) from the glebe (rectory).  Rather than take a nap, I decided to explore because it was a wonderfully sunny day, and there were signs that spring's on its way to Nova Scotia, so here are a few pictures.img_1870-745266


 

 

 

 

 

I walked for about an ninety minutes, but took a number of pictures of the countryside, including an old graveyard with a headstone dating to 1866 - about the time a Catholic church was built in the town.  The Companions - Frs. Randy, Rob, Allen and Jamey, staff three small parishes outside Halifax, along with the campus ministries at St. Mary's college and Dalhousie University.  I'll be giving a retreat to college students and young adults this weekend.

 

 

Tomorrow's supposed to be sunny and warm, so I'll walk a bit downtown, maybe sample a little Tim Horton's coffee, and try to blend in before heading up to the retreat center.  Right now, I'm going to bed, and look forward to being dead to the world.  img_1872-754877
