    I was sitting on the porch of an old cottage in Louisbourg Nova Scotia. It was just at sunset and the sky was a brilliant color of blues and oranges.We were on vacation in Cape Breton NS and I was finally able to rest after a long day of driving.
    I was smoking Pipe and Book-old guide tobacco in my Church Warden pipe. It felt like it had all come together somehow. Being in this historical city and smoking a replica of what had been a historical pipe design. A wonderful evening and a rare moment of contemplation with my pipe.

    I get it. Halifax to historic Lunenburg...

    Wish I was there now.

    Back to the pipe after 5+ years.

    Moments like these are half the reason I smoke a pipe. After a long day there is not much better than a contemplative bowlful in a beautiful setting. Alaska makes that second part pretty easy for me most times Nice work!

    Gotta love it when everything comes together for a perfect smoke. I had such a smoke the other day with a cheap estate pipe and a cheap bulk blend - a straight acorn "Mountbatten" which is a Charatan apprentice pipe as I understand it, and a bowl of Balkan Supreme.
