Peggys Cove

The Bakkery stopped off at Peggy’s Cove to see what we could see…and we loved what we saw! In fact, we loved it so much, we hung around for two days just listening to the ocean crash against the rocks. Have a look at the video below, and join us for a quick drive through;




Andrew Floyd Junior, Team Nova Scotia Captain at the Football Canada Championship 2019

Andrew Floyd Junior is amazing. Simply amazing. Sure maybe I’m a little biased because I have known him since the day he was born, and The Bakkery loves him like family (because he is!) but I have the proof right here;


I mean c’mon, Captain of team Nova Scotia, AND Offensive Player of the game?… and check out his highlight reel link above! The kid is going places, and we are behind him all the way!


Congratulations Andrew, we love you, keep moving forward bro, NOTHING can stop you!

Road Trip!

I thought about my Take Time post the other day, and II agree with me; I should take some time, and so, I am heading East with The Bakkery. Our first stop is Kingston ON to see Andrew Floyd Jr. compete in the Canada Cup Football Championship as Captain for Team Nova Scotia.

Lake Ontario Google Maps

THAT is a really big lake!

Lake Ontario Google Maps
It doesn’t look so big on the map…. but try driving beside it for a few hours!

We made it to Kingston Ontario!  What really stood out to us is how big Lake Ontario is; its freaking HUGE! Sure it looks big when you are standing on the shore skipping rocks into it, but try driving beside it for a few hours, and you REALLY start to get an idea of how big it is! We were driving, and driving… and it was still right beside us! Its no wonder that back in the 1900’s when my father (fresh into Canada from England) thought that it was an ocean!

Take Time

It is so important to take the time to look closely at the things we see everyday, but perhaps don’t appreciate, or take the time to look closely. For example, the other night/early morning, BakkerBoy and I were outside messing around with our cameras trying to take a good picture of the full moon when we realized that our blueberry bushes had the coolest looking dew drops on them, so we shone our flashlight on them and took a photo. It was interesting to us that we were so busy trying to take a photo of an object thousands of kilometers away, we almost didn’t notice the beauty that was literally right there beside us… pretty sure that there is some kind of life lesson in there somewhere, but we will leave that up to you, we just want to share our photos with you!

But… I Was In A Hurry

Dear Everyone In Line At Wal-Mart,

I’m sorry that I walked behind a closed cash register, turned on the light, and shouted;

“I can help the next customers in line over here!”

But I was in a hurry and needed to make our line a little shorter.
