What better part of summer can there be than a visit from a faraway friend?
This is my wonderful friend Lisa and me when we worked together in the Simpson's Children's Shoe Department in Toronto, back in the late 1980's.
She came for a visit last summer, and we had a ball together. It's her second visit here to see me since my husband and I moved to Nova Scotia ten years ago. A return home for me, a new adventure for him.
What is summer in Halifax but having a beer or a glass of wine at the quintessential gathering place - the pub? Here we sat outside at the Lower Deck to enjoy a gorgeous day.
Later in the week we went to The Old Triangle, where we had dinner as well as a few drinks. Absolutely delicious pub food.
Upstairs there was east coast fiddler Dave MacIsaac and a mandolin & guitar player who had the place whooping, stomping and clapping.
Here's a little taste of what a night out at a Halifax pub might bring you, if you happen to go while Dave MacIsaac is playing.
Back in our days fetching shoes for little customers, Lisa started a joke on crazy, hectic days where she would tip her glasses sideways as if she'd gotten knocked in the head. It always made us laugh and got us through the next stretch of insanity. So we felt the old wonky glasses routine was in order on our night out on the town.
Old friends, old jokes, great food, great drinks, great music - the best things about summer are these.

Thomma Lyn says What fabulous music!
Robin says Good pubs and live tunes, you don't need much more than that, do you?
Louise says After all those pics w/ beer and wine in hand comes those tipped glasses photos and I thought, WOW, they really had a hard night out ;o)
