For some reason, my daughter likes to play with my tripods. She puts her eye to them, says "sky" and uses them like a telescope. She even closes one eye!

And she can play with this tiny, old travel tripod all she wants.

The Party Girl by Matt Corkum
My daughter Sophie had a great time at her 2nd birthday party. Bubble Guppies cake, princess hats, and lots of fun with friends.

Mmm beer. 

I had four lovely local craft brews tonight.
A flight of four lovely NS craft brews at the Stubborn Goat, including beer from North Brewing, Garrison Brewing, and Big Spruce Brewing.

Fun little product shoot I did with my fav lens as the subject - my Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM.
A typical "product shot" of my favourite lens - my Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM. It's seriously great. Sharper than the 35L, quick focus, lovely images, and great build quality.

Amazing experience for the kids, just so-so for adults. My daughter loves Hop Skip Jump. She has a blast. The playground is insanely huge. There are so many options and she can easily kill 2h here. This place gets BUSY. Which is great for the business, but not so great for keeping track of your child and them having a really great time. I usually try for just after they open. When it's packed, I avoid it. There is a nice spot for parents to sit and still be able to kind of see their kid. The place for the younger kids has some fun stuff and even though my daughter is 4, she still likes to play in that area as well. The coat area is definitely not big enough. On busy days, it's overflowing. The party rooms are a decent size. One annoying issue is they will not allow outside drinks. That Timmies coffee you just grabbed on the way there to get you through the morning? Nope, leave it outside. This is obviously to push you to buy your drinks from them, and I get that, but it's heavy handed and turns people off. All in all, I'm glad this place opened up so close to where I live and we will be going back again... and again.

The worst dining experience I've ever had was at this location. To their credit, after writing the company an e-mail, the manager reached out and wanted to have a conversation. He gave me a gift certificate as well and ensured me they would use my experience as training on what not to do. I won't detail that experience here, but I'll sum it up: server gave some food to the wrong table, was embarrassed and never told us, new food didn't arrive in time and we had to leave to go to a movie after being assured we had plenty of time. 2/4 people didn't get to eat. The pizzas here are good. The beer is cold, though the selection could use a lot of work. My issue is with the non-pizza food items. I have no idea how many are made fresh and how many are frozen items reheated, but none of it is particularly good. So if you're going for pizza, you're fine. Otherwise, there are PLENTY of other places to go to get much better food. And better beer. I have to give props to the manager for eventually taking care of a situation that the wait staff, front desk staff, and on-duty manager mostly ignored. But the thing is, I've never had a really good experience at Boston Pizza. I will go to any of the other chains in Bayers Lake before I go here.

The Brick has a massive store, but don't expect to actually take home the thing you want on the day you pick it out. My fridge died. I needed a new one. I found lots of models I was interested in on the website, but they all said it would be 5 days before I could pick it up and 6 for it to be delivered. I went into the store and found a few I wanted to buy. I was told the same thing. They essentially have no stock. It's insane. I wanted to give them $1000 and they couldn't offer me anything. A friend bought a full set of new appliances for their new house. They paid a lot of money and set up a delivery date a month in advance. The delivery was almost a week late. They were living out of coolers and a mini fridge, using a toaster and a hot plate, and going to a laundromat for a week because of the Brick's incompetence. When they called, they were transferred to someone in Ontario, then back to NS, etc. They got the run around. For their troubles? Nothing. I will never understand how companies like The Brick (and increasingly) Leon's have grown so big. It's ALWAYS the independent shops that have more stock, better delivery times, cheaper service, and infinitely better customer service. And the prices are pretty much the same.

I often wonder how much longer Best Buy will be around. Its sister store, Future Shop, closed a while ago. So many people are buying things online, especially a lot of the products you can buy at Best Buy. Personally I hope it sticks around, because I buy lots of things from this location, and they price match, so I get the benefit of good pricing combined with actually being able to see the thing I want in person. The staff here are usually quick to help and some are knowledgeable, though the days of seasoned experts working at these stores are mostly over. I've had good experiences though and, again, I hope the store sticks around. The musical instrument section is surprisingly large. They have lots of instruments and accessories to choose from and it's nice to have another option besides Long and Mcquade.

Do not bring your child here. They will lose their minds. Fantastic place to blow a lot of money on party supplies, all branded to exactly what your kid wants. It's nice to be able to get everything (and I mean everything) branded the same. Barbie, Princesses, Doc McStuffins - you name it, they have it. They also have a massive balloon selection and the prices on those aren't half bad. Service is usually slow because they are doing double duty inflating balloons and running the cash sometimes. Prices could be lower, but the bulk candy is very affordable.

What a strange location for such an awesome restaurant. Tucked away in the business park, just passed Freddie's is Dhaba, consistently ranked as one of the best places to get Indian food in halifax. The ambiance is actually quite nice and you can easily forget you're in Bayers Lake. It's a bit dated inside, but the food is top notch and consistently good. They do take out as well. I find the take out portions not overly big. That is my one complaint. I'd like a little bit more food, especially for the cost. Otherwise, I love this spot!

I was pleasantly surprised by the service, repair and price. My car had been hit in a parking lot (while I was in it), and the other guy was on the hook for the repair. I took the car to three places and Maaco was the cheapest BY FAR. I was a bit weary of just going with the cheapest place, but each place had explained to me what they were going to do and why and the other spots had added several things that seemed very unnecessary. The folks at Maaco were knowledgeable and honest and they did a fantastic job. The car looks new. And I was able to save a fellow Haligonia a few hundred dollars. Most people wouldn't care about that aspect, but it was important to me that I got a great repair while at the same time not ripping off someone for a small bump in a parking lot.
