“Old Man” Sea Stack Up Close and Personal

No matter the time of day or year this impressive landmark on the way to Clarke Head always calls for attention. Enjoy!

Crossing the Tantramar Marsh at Sunset

One of the marvellous things when travelling to and from New Brunswick is the marsh landscape. Numerous wind turbines contrast with trees providing strong silhouettes at sunset. Tonight the sky was dappled with mauve clouds while the sun slowly slipped below the horizon providing one more fiery splash. Magical! I just had to share theContinue reading “Crossing the Tantramar Marsh at Sunset”

Just One More Beach at Golden Hour

It’s hard to believe that it’s St. Nicholas Eve. The day was filled with an abundance of sunshine. My friend and I ventured out to Phinney Green for an invigorating walk along the cliffs toward Brookville. The tide had not yet turned when we reached the car so on the way back to Parrsboro weContinue reading “Just One More Beach at Golden Hour”

Santa Came to Town…

The neighbourhood was all decked out tonight! Main Street was teeming with excited children respectfully staying on the sidewalks… …until finally the floats moved past! It was much warmer this year but my personal take away from tonight is that the excitement last year was more intense after missing a year due to Covid. It’sContinue reading “Santa Came to Town…”

Down Shore Drive with a New Friend…

The glorious sunrise promised a fabulous day ahead. A visitor to our town was interested in a little excursion, so we spent the morning exploring beaches and vistas! Strangers when we met, friends as we part tonight! What a way to spend November 29th. Can’t get enough of the sunshine! Hope everyone’s Tuesday was asContinue reading “Down Shore Drive with a New Friend…”

The Tree

I love trees! I am convinced they have a story to tell in the way the bark peels, curls back, reveals another layer, introduces striations and patterns. Such individuality, such movement – infinite possibilities! Have a fabulous Saturday! Be inspired – look at a tree!! Enjoy, Anna

November Pilgrimage…

When the day begins with glorious colour it calls for a special outing. November is nearing its end and due to my persistent shoulder injury I have not ventured far. But I needed to prove to myself that I was ready to get back into shape. Clarke Head was calling…. and my backpack was waiting.Continue reading “November Pilgrimage…”

Near Sunset

The tidal river at the bottom of our backyard was teeming with Canada Geese and ducks just seconds before I made the image above. No matter how carefully I try to approach it takes only one twig to snap under my foot and dozens of water birds take flight! With the large flock loudly honkingContinue reading “Near Sunset”

A Contemplative Moment…

…while crossing the bridge over the Parrsboro Aboiteau. While I enjoy this view daily, this afternoon reminded me of how much interest and beauty is all around. I zoomed in on special spots to capture ripples on the surface, the edge of the shore and rocks. I love these Zen moments… especially when I didn’tContinue reading “A Contemplative Moment…”

And just like that there is snow!

Yesterday’s wind was fierce and when we opened our eyes this morning there was snow! The sun is well above 0C now and the white stuff has nearly melted. I love these brief seasonal foreshadowing events. This snow cover won’t last long but it reminds us of what is to come. Happy Saturday! Best wishes,Continue reading “And just like that there is snow!”

A Windy but Productive Day

We woke up to -2 C this morning… and a stiff wind was blowing. But nothing deters us when we have committed to a beach clean up. Our friend Heather had organized this event and as good friends we didn’t want to leave her hanging. We braved the cold (at least -10 C with theContinue reading “A Windy but Productive Day”

Environmental Textures

The day started out windy but with the promise of sunshine. By early afternoon we actually had some large snowflakes flying past the windows but the moisture soon turned to rain. Instead of exploring nature at one of the beaches I perused my vast image library and got “stuck” on these eye catching geological textures.Continue reading “Environmental Textures”

Witnessing the Tide Come In

The weather today was warm and dry, perfect for taking my friend out for a belated birthday beach excursion. Phinney Green is always a great place to listen to the waves and watch the tide roll in. The light was soft and magical… …and the blue sky emerged with high tide early afternoon. Wishing everyoneContinue reading “Witnessing the Tide Come In”

The “Guzzle”

Not far from Evangeline Beach in Grand Pre and a short drive along dyke land is “The Guzzle”, an inter-tidal area of significance and ever-changing. We visited here the first time four years ago and since then some things have changed. The interpretive signs are a great addition to this destination viewpoint. Speaking of theContinue reading “The “Guzzle””
