Sunday Hike Adventure

The plan was to hike along the beach from Red Rocks to Refugee Cove, depending on the cooperation of the tide. Well, let’s just say “The Mistress of the Bay”, as my friend calls the Bay of Fundy tide, was not in the mood for a waltz or Foxtrott today. We made good time toContinue reading “Sunday Hike Adventure”

Snowshoe Excursion to the Parrsboro Dam

We woke up to a nice amount of snow that accumulated over night.

Last Friday was another glorious day in the Bay of Fundy. It definitely called for an extended outing. I packed the snowshoes, just in case and was glad to have them handy when the road approach turned out to be too slushy to drive. Snowshoes were the best solution to make headway though the woodsContinue reading “Snowshoe Destination: FoxPoint Beach”
