About Us

Brian & Deya met in Vancouver Canada. After a few years together we were married and made choices. One was not to have children the other was not to take life for granted. The rest is yet to come.

Nova Scotia The Land of plenty

Now I don’t know if it’s really the land of plenty but there are plenty of good roads, plenty of good food, plenty of weather and picturesque views and plenty of great people.

We headed back to hang out with Bill and Eunice who kindly escorted us around town, covering our rear when the bike ran out of gas on a busy street and navigating us out of the combat zone I accidentally GPS’d our way into. We stopped to visit with my cousin Doug who I haven’t seen for decades and his lovely wife. It was short but sweet and I hope we get to see them again in the future; it’s always kind of sad to have family that you don’t really know, but I think it’s common.

We headed out the next day to Archie’s shop and the whirl wind of awesome started. We did a tour of the facility then motored back to his pad and parked the bikes. After a quick tour of his place Elmer stopped by with his wife and a couple of friends. We had a nice visit and then headed out to a hill top bungalow for dinner and a cool swim on a full stomach. Once there we decided to spend the night and everyone but Joanne, Arch and us left.

The next day Archie toured us around to different areas including the Bay of Fundy where Deya got a picture of a guy who just caught a 31 inch Striped Bass. A bit more sight seeing and we headed back to Archie’s place but not before heading to another guys home to pick up some lobsters for dinner. I’ve never seen so many lobsters! The whirl wind continued as we headed over to Tom’s place, Tom had supper with us last night, so we could go pick some apples. The apples are used mostly for hunting bait; Tom and Archie are stealthy bow hunters which makes me look bad because now Deya wants to leave me here to learn how to be a man!

That evening we headed out for Tom and Jeanne’s cabin on the coast. We ate lobster with the trimmings and enjoyed some good company. We literally had to waddle down to the beach for a walk which was good fun. On the way back we threw some sticks together and had an awesome beach fire before heading back to Archie’s place to rack out. We would plan to leave the next day for New Brunswick and our buddy Wade’s house.
