“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!

Jeffers Falls

A misty Wednesday, grey and threatening rain off and on for most of the day, perfect for spending some time exploring the woods. I recently found out that a sign at the Jeffers Falls trailhead had been installed. Today we had a chance to check it out. While the trail was described as easy withContinue reading “Jeffers Falls”

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…”

Setting the mood…

I keep forgetting to make an image of this great house and it’s festive light display. The snowman is usually deflated by the time choir practice ends. Tonight I captured the scene on the way to the Bandhall. Enjoy and delight! Anna

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…”

Weekend Excursion to the Mahone Bay Area

It was a blustery day yesterday, the weather app labelled it “breezy”. Mahone Bay is always a sight to behold. I will be attending the Winter leadership module offered by the Outdoor Council of Canada here today. Next we scouted the location of the workshop, then found our accommodation in Bridgewater followed by a lovelyContinue reading “Weekend Excursion to the Mahone Bay Area”

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”

A Touch of Magic…

…as the village begins to transform. Each day more Christmas decorations are appearing best viewed and appreciated after dark! These images were captured on our way home from choir tonight. All we need is snow!😜 The Christmas spirit is beginning to stir especially after two hours of Carol rehearsal for the upcoming concert. Good night,Continue reading “A Touch of Magic…”

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”
