A Canadian Sunrise Welcome

Canadian Sunrise

This past Tuesday we headed across to Nova Scotia and were welcomed with a stunning Canadian sunrise. Welcome to week 341 (8/24/2017) of Travel Photo Thursday. Since arriving I have been spending time with my Dad and running around trying to buy a car and running into snags with the insurance. I know this will all get sorted out and hopefully sooner rather than later. This week’s Travel Photo Thursday is short and sweet. I hope things will be back to normal next week.

I’m not sure of our exact location over Canada when the sun began to peek over the horizon. However, it was lovely to be welcomed by this beautiful scene as we winged our way towards Montreal and then onto Halifax. (A cleaner window would have been nice!)

Our time in Montreal was too brief to even exit the airplane. The cleaning crew did a quick clean-up, passengers boarded and we were in the air again in no time. From all indications, it seemed that our welcoming sunrise had also ushered in nice weather for the Montreal area. However, by evening there was a dramatic turn of events. Winds whipped to hurricane levels, and in one area close to Montreal a tornado touched down. Ottawa was also in the path of this freak weather system. I was relieved that we had gotten in and out long before this weather system reared its ugly head. Although, winds were high and unrelenting in Halifax the next day.

I hope everyone is having a great August, and hopefully, things will get back to normal very soon with Travel Photo Thursday.

  1. I don’t fly into too many sunrises unless I’m off to Europe or the Americas. When I’m on an overnight, I always enjoy seeing the sun peek over the horizon.

  2. Glad you made it to Nova Scotia with your dad. Here’s hoping for some calm and good luck your way. Always enjoy sunrise and sunsets while high above the clouds.

  3. Thank goodness you dodged the winds. It must be so lovely to be home again.

  4. Wow, that is some freaky weather. Not weather to be in a plane in!!

  5. It must be good to be back home Nancie. We’ve experienced lots of inclement weather during our travels. We got caught up in a mini cyclone in Ho Chi Minh City a fews years ago and the whole neighbourhood we were staying in was blacked out for hours.

  6. Glad you made it home safely and hope all the insurance hassles clear up soon!

  7. Glad to know you made it to Canada! Hope you can settle relatively easy!

  8. Glad to hear you made it home safely. What a beautiful way to be welcomed home with a sunrise. I hope you settle back into your new-old life easily. Take care and have a wonderful time renewing.

  9. Sorry I missed the linkup – as you know, slogging can consume one’s life! Next week for sure. You have been dodging the bullet en route home between the North Korean threats and the weather in Montreal. . .stay safe and enjoy this new chapter!

    • Thanks, Jackie. Yes, I have been very lucky and I am grateful. I’m looking forward to getting Travel Photo Thursday running properly again. The blogging has suffered this spring and summer on all fronts 🙂
