My nephew from Vancouver, BC visited us for a couple of hours yesterday. He was in Halifax for a few days of work, and rented a car to come to see us (well, perhaps the beaches were the real attraction!) It was great to see him. He is 9 years younger than me...the oldest son of a brother who passed away from brain cancer when I was 16. My brother would be so proud of the man he has become.
We did some touring, and took the dogs for a walk on Rissers Beach. John's leg is in poor health these days...a set back after April's knee surgery. He enjoyed the beach from a rock, and managed to meet someone while we were walking...a man who summers in Crescent Beach, and winters in Victoria, BC. John can meet people wherever we go!
