Sunset Beach Walk at Diligent River Beach

Oh how wonderful it felt to get to the beach at sunset last night! We brought along the pups and they had a grand time marking spots, sniffing out treasures and jumping over obstacles. The sunset brought rich golds and oranges with the blue sky reflecting off the calm waters in the channel. There isContinue reading “Sunset Beach Walk at Diligent River Beach”

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”

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”

Contrast

Finding interest in a snowy landscape thanks to a branch ripped from the tree during last weekend’s storm is a nice change from the usual beach. The afternoon light was perfect for casting shadows and adding drama to this humble backyard scene… Enjoy your day. Best wishes, Anna

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…

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!

The Reprieve…

We are just winding down from one storm and preparing for another to arrive later today… we will be fine thanks to the glorious day we enjoyed yesterday!

And the Sunshine Returns…

All is well… Nova Scotia and New Brunswick received a big gift from Mother Nature. We weren’t affected too much. Best of all, it turned the world into a magical winter wonderland!

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…
