A Gray Start to The Day Brought Brilliant Sunshine!

What a way to honour the May long weekend Sunday. A group of hikers from Moncton inquired if I could show them the way to Clarke Head. You know my answer to their question. Of course I will share this epic beach excursion! As soon as we rounded the arch the sun burst through theContinue reading “A Gray Start to The Day Brought Brilliant Sunshine!”

Another Day – Another Beach

Checking in from Brookville Beach today. I have logged about ninety minutes along the most colourful beach and the tide is turning. Time to turn around… the wind has changed and clouds are moving in! Happy Saturday, everyone. Best wishes for this May long weekend, Anna

Refugee Cove Hike, Part 2

I could have stayed all day, sigh! But you know it’s time to push on when you see the tide rolling in. The Cove is spectacular and it is difficult to imagine that within a short time it will be completely flooded. The driftwood provided shelter from the wind and a good backrest while someContinue reading “Refugee Cove Hike, Part 2”

Refugee Cove Hike Impressions, Part 1

Yesterday’s epic hike meant an early morning for all. I met my ride just before 5 a. m. at the Parrsboro Tim Hortons. It was still dark with a bright moon guiding the way. The winding drive to West Advocate to the meeting place takes 45 minutes. Everyone was gathered there by 5:45, ready toContinue reading “Refugee Cove Hike Impressions, Part 1”

Springtime Impressions

After a day of mist and rain the trees are coming into full leaf. Flowering shrubs are lining the road and during my after dinner walk I noticed lovely floral scents in the air. Spring is in full swing and the rain is ridding the world of dust presenting us bright colours. Happy Tuesday, Amna

Exploring the Bigger Picture

It’s no secrets how passionate I am about “the beach.” But what exactly is it that I find so fascinating? For me it’s all about I what find after taking in the view. Last Sunday in West Advocate I discovered tide pools. I had not found any like this since I started roaming various beachesContinue reading “Exploring the Bigger Picture”

Exploring New Territory

When the invitation to join a hike to Seal Cove was posted on my FaceBook hiking group I decided to bow out of writing group and join the adventure instead. The trailhead to Seal Cove is well over an hour from Parrsboro. I headed to Apple River and into unknown territory beyond, a true adventureContinue reading “Exploring New Territory”

A long day of hiking…

…leaves me with just enough energy to post a few images. I joined a hiking buddy for a 12 km round-trip leg from Eatonville to Seal Cove along the Chignecto Trail.. Enjoy! More tomorrow, Anna

Wasson’s Bluff to Clarke Head…

…”I don’t think you can do that…” was the answer to my question shortly after we arrived in late 2020. I had inquired with the walking group I belonged to at the time. It’s taken me nearly 18 months to prove to myself that crossing the mudflats is definitely an option. I arrived at Wasson’sContinue reading “Wasson’s Bluff to Clarke Head…”

Partridge Island Beach Rocks

Ottawa House Beach is a popular destination for gentle walks. Earlier this week I arrived at a time when the tide was receding. Glooscap Grandmother’s Cooking Pots we’re bubbling, seaweed and kelp adorned the pebbles along the high tide line. The basalt cliffs beckoned… I headed in their direction and discovered a whole new beach…Continue reading “Partridge Island Beach Rocks”

Skeletal Remains

Just as the sun was slipping below the horizon a shape resembling a rib cage caught my eye from afar. I just had to investigate. The “rib cage” turned out to be a rusted culvert glowing in the light of the setting sun. Sometimes my imagination goes wild! Happy Wednesday, everyone! Best wishes, Anna

My Sunday afternoon search for the sun…

…was somewhat successful. At the end the clouds parted and revealed tiny spots of blue! These images are from down shore at Diligent River and Fox River. The capture with the red chair is titled “Is it Summer yet?” Happy Monday, everyone! May the sun shine brightly wherever you are today. Best wishes, Anna

Up Close Photography…

…is always a great way to explore the nitty gritty of a particular area. These images were made while exploring a park in Halifax. Finding subjects and topics for this type of photography is limitless! It has a name: Miksang. Miksang is Tibetan for “The Good Eye”. It is also referred to as Contemplative Photography.Continue reading “Up Close Photography…”
