Cooler than a Moustache

We’re back from a wonderful trip to Nova Scotia. Someone was pretty jazzed to go on vacation.

Here are some more highlights of Cape Breton:

Next, we drove to Halifax, where Owen caught up with Grandmum and Granddad,  learned to ride a scooter, and became a pirate.

Then we went WHALE WATCHING! Last time was less successful, as you may recall… This time was brilliant! We went with our friends Tim and Kirsty, and we saw 10 or more whales.

Duncan was pretty excited by this game, which we found in our rented apartment.

We also got to take a long walk through the woods to visit the balancing rock on Long Island:

Then Duncan and I escaped, and went wine tasting and walking along the dykes near Wolfville.

He was completely at ease with the grown men and teenagers. He was even flirting with their girlfriends. “Aren’t I cool?” he said. “Aren’t I cooler than a moustache?” So that became our favourite expression ever.

I have to say, our trip was cooler than a moustache.
