August 1st is Natal Day in Nova Scotia and a long weekend for many in the heart of the summer. The weather this year was perfect, bright and sunny but not too warm. So, to stretch my legs from a 20km hike the day before, I went for a stroll along the harbourfront to see what was going on and do some people watching.
Theodore Too, the self-proclaimed world-famous tugboat calls Cable Wharf home and takes people for a jaunty little ride around the harbour. It’s unlike the real tugboats that work the harbour in that it has eyes, a nose and wears a baseball cap. So, when it goes by, people tend to stop and point. These people seemed to think it was a pretty funny sight.
