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!”

Golden Light

It was a beautiful day yesterday, Easter Monday. We had appointments in Amherst all day and I missed my opportunity for a longer hike. Instead I carved out time for a sunset walk. I am always in awe of Golden Hour, that time before the sun slips beyond the horizon. The light seems to paintContinue reading “Golden Light”

First Beach Walk

The afternoon brought sunshine after the overnight rain. I made it to the beach for my first real post-surgery walk. Slowly gaining energy and strength. Grateful for our amazing beaches. Hope your Sunday was filled with sunshine! Best wishes, Anna

Anticipation…

The rainy day yesterday led to a light dusting of snow overnight. While scrolling through images I was drawn to the one featured today. It was created on a warm November day last year. For me it holds the promise of warmer days, calmer days and days that bring peace, better health for all andContinue reading “Anticipation…”

Soley’s Cove Sea Stack in the Mist

Remember my post from the fog-shrouded Parrsboro Lighthouse? On the way home from Truro we took Soley Cove Road at the foot of Economy Mountain. My friends who travelled with me had not been here before but were very happy I shared this little side-excursion and vista with them. Enjoy the mysterious images. Happy Friday,Continue reading “Soley’s Cove Sea Stack in the Mist”

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”

No matter what the weather…

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

Destination: Parrsboro Dam

Ten months ago I tried to find the trail to the Parrsboro Dam for the first time. I didn’t find it then but I kept the goal to hike there on my bucket list. Yesterday was the day to visit…

Giving Back…

…to the community. I am happy to announce that after a meeting with the Recreation Director for the Municipality of Cumberland County, Carolyn Bollwerk, a date is officially set to start a local Walking Group. When: Wednesdays, starting March 2nd, 2022, 10 a. m. Meeting Point: The Bandstand at the corner of Main Street andContinue reading “Giving Back…”

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…
