The call for a beach clean up in West Advocate was posted by the Cliffs of Fundy GeoPark a couple weeks ago. With the cancellation of the Hike Summit my Monday was suddenly free, so I ventured out to Advocate Harbour this morning. I arrived a little early. Once the light rain slowed I beganContinue reading “A Beach Clean Up Story…”

Among The Trees…
… was the title of the video that popped up on my phone today. Strange how it evoked a longing to head out and explore the forest. An hour after the video presented itself the notice, that hiking restrictions in wooded areas are now lifted in Nova Scotia, was issued. The rain we have enjoyedContinue reading “Among The Trees…”
Ottawa House-by-the Sea: Now Open for the 2023 Season!
Despite the rainy day we were busy serving visitors throughout the day today. Make sure you add Ottawa House Museum to your list of places to explore in 2023.
Looking to the sky…
…through the Maple canopy. Enjoy, Anna
Blog Post #730
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”
Looking for Drama in Your Landscape Photographs?
The Upper Bay of Fundy Shore line must top your bucket list! The varied coast line within the Cliffs of Fundy GeoPark is one of the most diverse areas to explore. Each beach offers walkable terrain and captivating subject matter. The images here are of the Clarke Head guided tour on offer through Tide RollersContinue reading “Looking for Drama in Your Landscape Photographs?”
Looking for faces…

Fox Point Beach to Diligent River
Besides my first aid kit and plenty of water I like to leave a bit of room in my backpack for my sense of adventure. Today’s beach excursion was timed carefully to see how long we would have to get past the large seaweed covered rocks on the east side of FoxPoint Beach, explore theContinue reading “Fox Point Beach to Diligent River”
Morning Light …
… through delicate maple leaves in spring. Enjoy! Best wishes, Anna
Down to the beach we venture…
Soley Cove has become a go-to destination, best explored during the low tide window! It was perfect beach walk weather, not too hot, a little ubreeze and the tide just about to turn. The decision to walk out on the muddy ocean floor might not have been the smartest… but you live and you learn😊Continue reading “Down to the beach we venture…”
With the rain today it was time to spend some downtime planning… heading out early tomorrow for a beach excursion. Can’t wait to compare this cliff image with tomorrow’s. Based on past experiences the sandstone will be saturated with moisture and present even more vivid colours… check back tomorrow to see if I am correct.
It’s my favourite time of the year when spring is moving toward summer and with each day we witness trees greening up! Happy long weekend, Anna
Video Flashback: Refugee Cove
May 18th, 2022 – my first ever hike to Refugee Cove! It was a glorious day, one year ago… I will blame this hike on planting the idea of exploring the Cape Chignecto Coastal Trail. It only took a year to realize my dream and meet my personal goal.
Moody sky, unobstructed view of Five Islands and a vast beach to explore… great ingredients for a photo excursion… Happy Monday, Anna
Thomas Cove Economy Trail Loop at Low Tide
A sunny afternoon called for a nature outing. We chose Thomas Cove and were treated to low tide views and perfect conditions to explore not only the woodlands on top of the cliff but also the ocean floor. We used the rope to access the sandstone without incident. I had lost my footing last timeContinue reading “Thomas Cove Economy Trail Loop at Low Tide”
Just a few close ups from recent excursions…
…clumps of moss, weathered driftwood, shelf fungi, newly emerged plants and a spiral lichen! Nature presents her gifts! Enjoy your Saturday. Best wishes, Anna

With positive energy we forged ahead fully aware of the oneContinue reading “Cape Chignecto Provincial Park Coastal Trail – Final Section”
Cape Chignecto Provincial Park Hike – Instalment 2
After 15 km of ascends and descents through springtime woodlands on Friday and a chilly night below the full moon, we woke up early to frost-kissed leaves. Brian estimated that it got to -3 to -5C. I believe it… the way the cold kept creeping up from my lower back to my shoulders was annoying.Continue reading “Cape Chignecto Provincial Park Hike – Instalment 2”
Recounting the Memories: Cape Chignecto – Day 1
When you wake up one morning in February thinking you should circumnavigate Cape Chignecto you either shake your head and ignore the silly thought or you start conditioning. I first found myself a hiking partner with Cape Chignecto experience and then started training. Each journey starts with a single step and the preparation for meContinue reading “Recounting the Memories: Cape Chignecto – Day 1”

As you view this post I will have passed by this brook and falls on our first leg of a four day back country hike. By the time this post goes live my friendsContinue reading “McGahey Brook, Cape Chignecto”
