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”

Partridge Island Hiking Trail Inspection

I am conducting a guided hike as part of Ottawa House-by-the-Sea Thanksgiving events. Yesterday I woke up realizing that I had not checked the trails after Fiona payed us a visit. So, after walking my dogs in town I headed over to Partridge Island to put my mind at ease. All is well on theContinue reading “Partridge Island Hiking Trail Inspection”

Slowly and very quietly…

…reminders that autumn is on its way are more visible with each day. Hope your Tuesday is filled with colour! Best wishes, Anna

Walking at Phinney Green at Low Tide

This beach never disappoints! We came upon a couple collecting dulse… …but for the rest of the sunny walk we found ourselves alone, wading in the gentle waves lapping at the pebble beach. Several industrious spiders were spinning furiously to repair their webs on the shady side of the large rock. The view never disappoints!Continue reading “Walking at Phinney Green at Low Tide”

Low Tide Soley’s Cove Excursion, Day 2

The weather was much better today when I left the house at 6:15 a.m. to take full advantage of another ocean floor walk at Soley’s Cove. The sky was constantly changing despite a lack of wind. It was such a wonderful walk with a friend. Conversation flowed easily as we walked across the firm sandContinue reading “Low Tide Soley’s Cove Excursion, Day 2”

Tour Day!

Sometimes the best days are those that are planned at the spur of the moment. Today was such a day! Two lovely guests to Parrsboro were interested in exploring the shore. We made it to Phinney Green just before high tide. The clouds parted and the sun illuminated the beach perfectly for pictures. The afternoonContinue reading “Tour Day!”

Red Rocks Beach in West Advocate and Cape d’Or

I had the pleasure of leading a bus tour with 26 participants down shore yesterday. Our first destination was West Advocate where the Red Rocks beckoned. The group even spotted a seal close to shore in the waters of the outgoing tide. The landscape was shrouded in mist for most of the day. As weContinue reading “Red Rocks Beach in West Advocate and Cape d’Or”

When the Fog Lifted…

After a day of regrouping and dealing with a quiet house I made time for a Beachwalk. First and Second Beaches were shrouded in most, the fog horn sending its piercing sound across the water. As we rounded the point the fog had lifted and revealed some stunning colours. It was time to fully exhaleContinue reading “When the Fog Lifted…”

Soley Cove Vistas and Impressions

Soley Cove in my books has a special notation. I call it “The Magic Beach”! Today’s photo essay might just bring some magic to your day. Enjoy, Anna

Sharing the Experience!

As newcomers to the Parrsboro Shore you know that you belong once you have experienced the “Meeting of the Waters” at Two Islands around the full moon. Another new member to the community reached out last week to find out more about hiking and exploring the beaches. I decided to share the ultimate experience withContinue reading “Sharing the Experience!”

Jewels in the grass…

I haven’t had a lot of beach time lately but there is always something to appreciate! I call these raindrops “jewels” as they sparkle and glisten on the clump of grass… But then there is the evening sky tonight: emulating a water colour painting. So soothing and calm. May your Friday evening be blessed withContinue reading “Jewels in the grass…”

Random Impressions…

Some much deserved backyard love…

…or more appropriately: Poppy Love! I have always delighted in growing poppies. During our last years in Calgary we had a poppy bed in the front yard people would drive to and take photographs of. We took some of the seeds with us when we moved to Saskatchewan. But, no matter how hard we tried,Continue reading “Some much deserved backyard love…”

Ocean Floor Impression…

The term “ocean floor” regularly draws attention. It is my favourite place to explore once the tide moves out. The mighty Bay of Fundy waters move “treasures” about, deposit sea glass and rocks while continually eroding geological formations. Enjoy today’s offering! Best wishes for a fabulous day, Anna

Another Day, Another Tour: Soley’s Cove at Low Tide

A vacationing couple from Halifax contacted me Saturday morning. Heidi from the Pleasant Street Inn suggested had passed on my information and we connected in person just as they were finishing one of the Pleasant Street Inn’s epic breakfasts. We met up Sunday afternoon and ventured out onto the mudflats together for a two hourContinue reading “Another Day, Another Tour: Soley’s Cove at Low Tide”
