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”

Phinney Green on a Saturday Morning

It was an exhale kind of moment when we arrived at one of the best kept secrets along the Bay of Fundy this morning. It always gives me such pleasure to bring new friends to this particular beach with its rich natural history and diverse geological formations. Lori, my friend, was in awe as theContinue reading “Phinney Green on a Saturday Morning”

Another visit to the Sugar Bush…

… before the sap turns sour, and just because it’s difficult to stay away from the intoxicating scent of boiling maple syrup! Our friends were curious about the Fenwick Sugar Bush and since it was a fabulous spring day yesterday we went for an outing to Thompson’s and Ripley’s. It wasn’t busy at all, soContinue reading “Another visit to the Sugar Bush…”

Twelve Days Later Than Planned…

…but I finally made it to my monthly destination, Clarke Head. It was a grey day, with rain in the forecast. A little rain was not going to deter my friend and I when we set out shortly after the tide turned yesterday afternoon. The walk was wonderful and just what I yearned for. ThisContinue reading “Twelve Days Later Than Planned…”

Trip to the Sugar Bush

A year ago we had the pleasure of joining a group of friends on a visit to the sugar bush near Fenwick, between Amherst and Springhill. This year we ventured out on our own. We had this excursion on our calendar for a few weeks hoping to bring along friends but our schedules never seemedContinue reading “Trip to the Sugar Bush”


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…”

Rays of Hope

I captured this image about ten weeks ago. It was late 2021, a moody day with constant light changes presented me with this mesmerizing vista. I found myself behind seaweed covered boulders just in time for the sun to push through the clouds to illuminate the waters of the Minas Basin May this day beContinue reading “Rays of Hope”

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”

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!

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!

Hardscrabble Road

No, I didn’t make it up… Hardscrabble Road is real. To access Hardscrabble Road we backtracked from the Joggins Fossil Centre through town and took the turn which was well signed. Hardscrabble Road hugs the Fundy coastline till it connects with Cove Road and you have a choice to carry on to Menudie or turnContinue reading “Hardscrabble Road”

Merry Christmas from the Beach…

I still pinch myself every time we head to the beach in the winter… The Bay of Fundy holds so much magic no matter which beach we stop at!

Layers and Texture…

Sunday presented us with some beautiful sunshine and during a short drive, we stopped to take in the view toward Blomidon across the Minas Basin. The reflection was mesmerizing and the way the sun illuminated the edges of the clouds was worth capturing in the image above. We had stopped in a little clearing andContinue reading “Layers and Texture…”
