Tall ship at the Habitation at Port Royal on the Annapolis River (Bay of Fundy). I had such complex emotions seeing this. Port Royal is the first year round european habitation (1605), it's where Canada began. It was a beautiful day. Its #canada150 and celebrating nationhood (already complex) feels intractable alongside bare faced nazis claiming "nationalism". (Knock knock Canada, this is how many Indigenous Peoples feel). I was standing next to my friend (an immigrant), listening to a Mi'kmaq drum ceremony and joyful Acadian fiddle music from up the shore. I knew I was seeing what the beginning of colonialization and Ingenious genocide looked like. I thought of my ancestors who arrived here fleeing famine, war, and their own cultural genocide. I thought of all the refugees who continue to come seeking a better life. Of how much work we settlers have yet to do to own the past and reconcile it (even with other settlers...Nova Scotia was a major destination of the Underground Railroad. We helped people flee slavery, but racism still exists). A bomber jet flew overhead in promenade...and I had a gut wrenching and visceral fear of war. Like, I almost burst into tears. And yet, it's an absolute privalege that I have the safety and security to think deeply about these things without having to also survive them. #somanyfeels #pictureworth1000thoughts #dobettereveryday

Bluenose + BBQ + Beach + Pals = Nova Scotian Summer. Watching the tall ships come in was pretty amazing! Thanks for the invite @kyla.anchorandvine ! #tallship #bluenose
Mom and I had so much fun exploring the city today-she's been wanting to go on the Windy, and it was a great way to spend my last Wednesday of freedom 😊. #chicago #windychicago #tallship #sailing #lakemichigan #milleniumpark
