Yes, 730 is not a fictitious number I pulled from the air or my imagination. Today’s entry truly constitutes my 730th blog post, two complete years of posting every day! It all started out with a more contemplative theme. I would choose one or two images, add some personal thoughts, a haiku or I wouldContinue reading “Blog Post #730”

It was a bit gray in Parrsboro today but signs of flowers and leaves budding are everywhere. My heart is full tonight! Thank you NSWalks for nominating me as one of the community volunteers contributing to life in Cumberland County. I just returned home from an evening of celebration, meeting other volunteers and shaking handsContinue reading “Spring Cheer”
…Mother Nature sent a message to remind us to stay humble. Snow and freezing rain created fleeting jewels on tree branches and beach treasures. The ice crust and icicles didn’t last long after I captured them in photos. Friday blessings Anna
Searching for new growth Among rocks and last year’s plants – Tiny star of green.
Jurassic sandstone Weathered for millennia – When will it break off?
Emerge at low tide These algae covered boulders – Ancient witnesses.
These shallow waters Reflecting the vast landscape – Summer will return!
The Lone Goose…
She stood out, one leg tucked under to stay warm, balancing perfectly still on the ice in the Aboiteau. Such a sight to behold!
Geese assemble here At the bottom of our yard – Honking through the night…
Winter Walk Around the Parrsboro Lighthouse
And here are some details of the ice under foot: Enjoy!
A quiet beach with mist rising, tiny snowflakes drifting from the sky and an unidentified object floating offshore… Cochrane Road Beach was deserted this afternoon as the tide was rising. It was perfect for decompressing and filling the well. Sunday tranquility… enjoy! Best wishes, Anna
Study of contrasts Of landscape details around – The red mud puddle!

Seaweed and Barnacles Rainy Day Hike
I missed out on the great weather yesterday. Despite the rainy day forecast I decided to venture to Clarke Head with the outgoing tide today. I barely made it to the beach when the drizzle started but water and wind-proof clothing kept me warm and dry for the two hour excursion. Partridge Island and CapeContinue reading “Seaweed and Barnacles Rainy Day Hike”
Signs of Winter…
My friend and I took in a couple hikes today. When we reached the beach near the mouth of the Ramshead River we discovered a true winter wonderland across the river from us. There was time to stop on the other side to inspect the gigantic icicles and ice covered rocks across from Cape SplitContinue reading “Signs of Winter…”
Winter Beach Treasures
The beach always offers up colour, even a dreary, grey winter day holds surprises under foot. Look closely and see the brightly coloured pebbles, the deep burgundy seaweed frozen in time or the soft red and cream of coral… Wishing you all a relaxing weekend, Anna
Winter Woods Haiku
In the winter woods Gnarly branches twist and turn – Nest or witches’ broom?
Partridge Island Hike Impressions
One week ago tomorrow I embarked on my hazard assessment hike to inspect the Partridge Island Eco Trail. The images above will serve as a memory boost… … the images here were from this afternoon’s hike. I had borrowed crampons from the local recreation department but they were not needed. We managed fine with hikingContinue reading “Partridge Island Hike Impressions”

Passing Through Lower Economy…
…on our way to Halifax today the Bay of Fundy’s Minas Basin presented a view I have never experienced before. There were ice chunks littering the foreground. The water itself was so calm that it provided the perfect opportunity for reflections for the headlands of Economy Point and Kiln Stack Island. Have a great startContinue reading “Passing Through Lower Economy…”
