Into the Distance

It’s Sunday and we have been blessed by another “snow into rain” event. It is the kind of day that I love to browse through my recent photographs to select those that have touched me the most. The natural window featured today is one of those special captures that call for a pause and completeContinue reading “Into the Distance”

Magical Fog

Following a night of heavy rain I made my way to Truro yesterday. On the way home fog was rolling off the Bay of Fundy toward the Cobequid Highlands and by the time I arrived back in Parrsboro the fog horn was calling… a quick drive to the pier provided a few serene moments afterContinue reading “Magical Fog”

Yearning for Spring.,,

As I look out the window and observe snow changing to rain and back to snow again all within minutes, my eye catches a flash of green reminding me that the countdown to spring is indeed progressing… 39 days and counting. Happy Wednesday! Stay warm and dry, wherever you are, Anna

Next, please…

Big water drops are forming with the next episode of our wether pattern this year. When we first arrived in Nova Scotia a friend told me that when these drops form and hang from the bare branches of the winter tree, a lot more rain is on the way. The snow is melting, creating hugeContinue reading “Next, please…”

Seeking and Finding Inspiration

When winter days appear too similar, without too many changes and little easing of the cold it’s time to examine the landscape for subtle changes. Inspiration is everywhere: from snow covered backyards polished by rain and wind to shards of ice reaching from their watery depths like alligators. A five minute backyard excursion yields visualContinue reading “Seeking and Finding Inspiration”

No matter what the weather…

Clarke Head on a Sunday morning… moving from light snow to full sunshine along the Fundy Shore!

Mood Enhancer…

The plan was for a quick walk to clear the head… it turned into two hours of bliss while exploring the beach and everything on my way there!

A Quiet Sunday…

…and the absence of an internet connection has me posting later than usual today. We are still clearing areas of snow drifts on our property and after a short drive through the community we are feeling rather grateful that we do not have toppled trees across our yard or no heat. We are warm andContinue reading “A Quiet Sunday…”

And so it begins…

The forecast for a major winter storm has been circulating in the news for several days. With temperatures around +10 C yesterday and blue skies I made it to the beach twice. In the morning the tide was out and it afforded us a nice, leisurely walk. When I returned to the same beach theContinue reading “And so it begins…”

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!

Phinney Green

The last beach excursion of 2021 was full of contemplation and discovery. Join me as I recount the experience…

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!
