the Gag Reel.

Because even though I've shared lots of pictures of our vacation with you already, we still have tons more! lol So I figure, there's always room for a few more that will hopefully put a smile on your face...

There are some more of our more 'Touristic Duty" pics... Some times you just gotta have a little fun...

On August 26th we went to the Mastodon Ridge MiniPutt Pack, in Stewiake, Nova Scotia. We just got all primitive...


And yes... there WAS a Mastodon...

We're still not sure if it was a He-Mastodon or a She-Mastodon...


Who Knew that Bedrock was in Nova Scotia?!



Guess who won?


We finally we made it to the Mini Putt. This was as close to a hole in one that either of us got...


And if you will recall, Stewiake is 'Halfway between the North Pole and the Equator' I swear it's a really big deal for them...


Ah yes... the obligatory fiberglass animal pics...


Didier cum Atlas...


On the 27th we made our way to Peggy's Cove.. They have a funny way of greeting people and saying 'Welcome"...

... Have fun now... y'hear!

Most people think the reason to go to Peggy's Cove is for the incredible views, the only Lighthouse Post Office in North America... but it's not. Ultimately, it's all about their Ginger-bread. No foolin'! this stuff kicks serious ass! If I only do one thing when I am home in Nova Scotia, it's to haul ass to Peggy's Cove and get a piece of Gingerbread at the Sou'Wester restaurant.

... just ask Didier... this was his 2nd visit to the Cove...



Okay, okay... it's not about the Gingerbread at all... it's the chance to bronco-bust a buoy...


On the 28th we were at the Citidel. This is a fort that was built back in 1700's and rebuilt in the 1800's. And it's CLEARLY obvious that they were of a far more delicate and refined 'European stature', back in the day, as can be confirmed by these two photos of us both standing in the same doorway... (and notice who is obviously reaching to gain an extra inch...)




We made it over to PEI on the 29th, and within a few hours Didier was asking "Who is this Anne of Green Gables" Her picture is every where and it's all over every sign and guide book and pamphlet...?"
Well on the 30th I took him up to Cavendish to Green Gables, and there he made a new friend...



...actually he made two friends... This is Bessie the Fiberglass Cow...


But it's not just Fiberglass animals that we will abuse... oh no... Give us a five foot tall stuffed moose and we're gonna be all over that too!...




Not only was my face as red as a lobster from all the sun, but I actually sprouted Lobster Antennae!


... It's over there... O're yonder...
(Even Leo Bear is like. "Yeah... Whatever Shawn...")



*sigh* I'm missing our Vacation....

You're a braver man than I. I would never have the nerve wear a lobster bib.
