From here to Halifax

It was nice to find a penguin sea captain in Halifax, Nova Scotia, a place still very dependent on the sea. The way the weather changes, it can feel like your on a ship instead of an island. The one with the pink collar, a gift from my friend Grace Wong, must be the missus on the widow’s walk, waiting for his return. The captain came with a nifty ribbon which I left on the ornament.
