Reunion Recap

Yesterday, the Dobson family gathered in Half Island Cove (Guysborough County, Nova Scotia) for a long-awaited reunion.

We started with a quick tour of the Lighthouse Museum. The building used to be the community school, and older family members shared their stories of being students there (including some of their less than studious behaviour).

Then we stopped by the "old homestead" where Dad and his siblings grew up. The house is currently for sale--and a lingering source of temptation for a few of us.

Across the road, the beach was just a short walk away (see photo). While time has eroded the shoreline, it hasn't altered the memories of those who used to swim there in their youth.
