Copied this little image from our weather site right now!
We went out around noon, I’d put on an ordinary coat, but that was way too hot. I hear in the news now that temperature records were broken all over the province.
I had an appointment downtown at 1:30PM so we went down to the Reversing Falls just
to kill time and enjoy the warmth and the sunshine. The tide was rolling in, and with it, many seals. They are harbour seals — today they were quite numerous, and seemed to be enjoying themselves just as much as we were.
For a few days now, I’ve been looking for groundhogs. With this warm weather and the fact that we’ve had hardly any snow, I figured they’d be out and today I was rewarded! This little darlin’ was peeking out of her hole by the Falls.
It just so happened that I had a few peanuts in my pocket.
Went downtown for my appointment. It was at the Immigrations office — my new Permanent Resident card had arrived, and in order to obtain it, there was a little interview involved. I started the renewal process back in last Fall, luckily … wasn’t aware of how long time it would take, and my old card would expire in April. The office is located in a big federal building, where I’d never been before. Found the immigrations office easily enough, there was a waiting area, and only one person in there. I hardly know any people at all here in Saint John, but wouldn’t you know! The person in there was one of the few! I knew him from the photo group and I’d heard before that he’s originally American. Later, another guy from the States arrived, and also a girl from Holland.
The interview went swimmingly and I now have my card for five more years. This is the same thing as a ‘Green Card’ in the US.
This little guy was just singing his heart out, I liked how the picture came out so I wanted to post it here.
