No matter how chilly it is…

…an afternoon walk at First Beach is invigorating and lifts the spirit. After the walk we took a drive out toward Black Rock where Cape Split was beckoning across the bay. My friend Laura had some wisdom to share “a storm is coming when the sun drinks from the ocean…” Happy Friday, everyone! Anna

Geological Formation or Natural Ice Sculpture?

At the base of the cliff I came across this fascinating sculpture last week. It reminded me of a pre-historic creature and as I approached I expected it to grow wings to take flight at any moment. It took getting up close and personal with it to realize that ice and pink Bay of FundyContinue reading “Geological Formation or Natural Ice Sculpture?”

Other-Wordly Continued…

Thanks for coming back to find out more about my discovery after I moved to the “dark side” of Clarke Head. Another world opened up, one of wonder and awe! I felt drawn to move on and round the next rock formation… Soon I realized that this area connects me directly to Wasson’s Bluff! ThisContinue reading “Other-Wordly Continued…”

Other-Wordly?

Yesterday was a beautiful day, beckoning me to take full advantage of the sunshine before the next weather system brings changes. I snowshoed from the gate of Glooscap Campground all the way down to the beach. I love the spot I featured above: it is always awe-inspiring and Feb. 16th, 2022 did not disappoint: theContinue reading “Other-Wordly?”

Disappearing Boulders

Parrsboro’s Second Beach had some impressive sights yesterday afternoon. At first glance these formations looked like sandstone boulders. Walking closer they revealed themselves as ice formations covered in Red Fundy Mud. It was a sight to treasure! To show how massive these icy boulders were I included an image of my friend next to one.Continue reading “Disappearing Boulders”

Fleeting…

I inhaled deeply when I arrived at the beach yesterday: fresh, salty air, a little sunshine overhead and other-worldly ice sculptures only Mother Nature can create greeted me. It felt so good to get out, walk between the large rocks of First Beach toward these pink sand coloured monsters. Click on the third image inContinue reading “Fleeting…”

Storm Stayed…

Yes, it’s the weekend and after a reprieve from snow and wind last weekend we make up for it this time. It’s the third weather system in Atlantic Canada this January and the snow is being driven sideways. We were warned about the “weather bomb” earlier in the week and I was so grateful thatContinue reading “Storm Stayed…”

The Reprieve…

We are just winding down from one storm and preparing for another to arrive later today… we will be fine thanks to the glorious day we enjoyed yesterday!

The Ancients…

As long as it is not snowing, the wind too strong or the rain pelting down I make an effort to get out even during the winter… Diligent River called!

Wards Brook Beach

Wards Brook Beach is a 20 minute drive from Parrsboro. The access has changed and became a little more challenging over the last year but my determination paid off…

Walking Toward the Light…

I embarked on a long walk along the Fundy Shore recently… it helped to clear the cobwebs from my mind while I concentrated on the amazing scenery. Happy New Year! Grab a cup of coffee or tea and walk with me…

Five Islands Lighthouse Park

We have countless beaches, some are easy to walk, others not so much… Five Islands Lighthouse Park is one of the beaches that is suitable for all levels of fitness!

Great Village…

…a great village to explore, especially if you are into antiques and collectibles. Perhaps you are a regular viewer of CBC’s Land & Sea and caught this episode that first aired on November 21st? Perhaps you watched it but didn’t really know where this grouping of antique stores can be found. Wonder no more: GreatContinue reading “Great Village…”
