A Misty Saturday

We are on our second day of on-again-off-again rain. I embrace these wet days as the landscape reveals vistas and textures often missed in bright sunlight. During my morning walk the bridge over the Aboiteau caught my attention. Rarely is the water this still and reflective. With the misty sky everything moves into focus andContinue reading “A Misty Saturday”

Rock Hounding in the Bay of Fundy

Exploring the beaches has become my passion. Sharing the area with visitors is the next best thing. This week I am spending time with a young rock hounder from Quebec. Our first stop was Wasson’s Bluff shortly after sunrise on Tuesday. Tuesday afternoon we ventured to Five Island Provincial Park to explore the beach aroundContinue reading “Rock Hounding in the Bay of Fundy”

Sunday Afternoon Break in the Sun…

There is no better place to shift gears and get a break from every day responsibilities than the beach! The tide was rolling out and the sun shone brightly providing us with a healthy dose of Vitamin D 😜. I never grow tired of Second Beach in Parrsboro. With each time of day, after eachContinue reading “Sunday Afternoon Break in the Sun…”

Sunday Outing…

By now you all know this unique landmark, the arch at Clarke Head. Nothing gives me greater joy than sharing our amazing beaches and geological formations with newcomers to the area! Last Sunday turned out to be a sunny day, ideal to walk to Clarke Head and back before the tide cut us off. MyContinue reading “Sunday Outing…”

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…”

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

Inner Harbour Exploration

Yesterday was another sunny day and with half an hour to spare between commitments I went out for a quick walk. Parrsboro has a rich shipbuilding and seafaring history. The harbour is gone and much has changed but remnants of the old docks provide great opportunities to explore. The anchor holds much symbolism on multipleContinue reading “Inner Harbour Exploration”

Nova Scotia’s Fifth Season

It’s Maple Sugar Season! And there is no need to head out to a remote sugar bush… trees have been tapped all over town. These are images of what I came across yesterday during my afternoon walk. My timing was great as the sun was casting long, dramatic shadows. The sap has been running sinceContinue reading “Nova Scotia’s Fifth Season”

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”

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?”

A Perfect Spot…

Photography is not possible without a source of light… the light this time of the year in the Bay of Fundy is extra special.

First Snow…

There were several weather warnings in effect the day before yesterday. We had an unexpected trip to Halifax for medical reasons and decided to get a hotel in the city but not without concern about leaving our home back in Parrsboro. The predictions for wind damage and flooding were dire… but once again it turnedContinue reading “First Snow…”

The beach was calling… come along and check out the discoveries…

Low Tide at Second Beach

Thomas Cove Excursion

…Two hours well spent and with a memory card full of images…

Staying Flexible…

…As we immerse ourselves into the moment, the experience of discovery and fully appreciating what we are seeing and framing with our cameras tops any discomfort due to wet clothing or biting flies buzzing around our heads…
