Tripping Down Memory Lane

After dropping the man/child off at the Digby ferry, we headed towards the Valley to scout for housing. Along the way, I instructed hubby to take a little side trip, to the old Cornwallis Basic Training Base. Both hubby and I spent a few (10 long, mostly sleepless) memorable weeks there, during the bitter grip of winter. Back then, we had real winters.

I remember marching or running in formation, trying not to slip and fall on the icy or snow-covered roads. Or doing push-ups in front of the H-huts, the living quarters, before being led off to the mess hall for breakfast even before the sun had the decency to wake up. Ah, those were the days...

Gee - Canadian Barracks look just like US military barracks.

Perhaps there is a standard template somewhere?

Certainly it does not seem to apply to the UK where all buildings seem new if they are under 200 years old.

Up for planning another March Madness project.
