Busy, busy, busy


Just a quick post here from me. Had a great remaining time in Halifax. Of course the days just flew by. Sunday the weather was kind of rainy so we did all indoor stuff. Went to Pier 21 - the immigration museum which was really interesting. After lunch we went to Keith Brewery for a brewery tour which was also very cool. They have costumed guides acting out the period (1862) telling you a lot about the history and brewing process along with songs & games.

Monday we went to Dartmouth across the harbor for a little walking tour. The ferry ride back to Halifax was especially neat because of the harbor and skyline views. Met up with my pal Kimber for lunch. It was great to see her in person for the first time after writing for so many years. In the afternoon we went to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic which had a really neat exhibit on the Titanic. Halifax was one of the first cities to respond to the disaster and a lot of victims are buried there as well.

Tuesday we started our drive back and stopped in Kennebunkport, ME for the night. Kennebunkport is such a cute town and I am always happy when we get to be there, even if it's for one night and dinner. Had a yummy dinner at Federal Jack's. Then Wednesday morning we left Maine and headed straight back to work.

Work's been busy but I have lots of outside-of-work activities to keep me busy too. Today we are going to see "Hamlet" on Broadway, starring Jude Lawe. Probably will have dinner after the show which means we won't get home till after 2am most likely. Tomorrow we are going to see "The Time Traveler's Wife" at the movies since I have been wanting to see that for ages. Also need to pack tomorrow since I am off to Phoenix on Monday. Flying there Monday, Tuesday is the launch/release party for Echo and then flying back to the East Coast on Wednesday. So yeah, I am keeping busy. :)

Mail update: Letters went out on Monday to: Alex/Spain and Caroline/Scotland. Letters went out on Thursday to: Celia/MA and Jetta/Finland. Received letters from/still owe replies to: Charles/TN, Lotte/Denmark and Eunice/Malta.
