Winding Down with Naomi

Hmm...what is this all about, really? It's me jotting down ideas about things that go on in my life, and some occassional pictures of things I've seen and done.

Ok...so maybe I need the fat lady to sing or something!

Long weekend (part 5)- It ain't over 'til the fat lady sings*.

Some more of Peter's photos from our trip to Cape Breton. I will have fewer words, more photos for this one. Then hopefully next post will bring us closer to where we are currently. (i.e. I will do an update of all the fun that has happened SINCE the first weekend of August!)

Louisbourg Fortress and surrounding area make up this first set of photos. There were a bunch of individuals acting like townspeople wandering the town.

*"It ain't over 'til the fat lady sings" description is courtesy of Wikipedia : The proverb refers to Richard Wagner opera suite Der Ring des Nibelungen and its last part, Götterdämmerung. The "fat lady" is Valkyrie Brünhilde, who is traditionally presented as a very buxom lady with horned helmet, spear and round shield. Her aria lasts almost ten minutes and marks the end of the opera.

Great pictures. Has Brunhilde sung now? What happens next in Naomi's wind-down time?

What type of bird is it that was crossing the road? I haven't looked it up yet...

Naomi was much better at keeping track of names of places so I'm glad she posted these; there are a few spots I forgot the name for!

PS I'm posting this from my PS3, just to see if I can!
