Yes, 730 is not a fictitious number I pulled from the air or my imagination. Today’s entry truly constitutes my 730th blog post, two complete years of posting every day! It all started out with a more contemplative theme. I would choose one or two images, add some personal thoughts, a haiku or I wouldContinue reading “Blog Post #730”

Looking for Drama in Your Landscape Photographs?
The Upper Bay of Fundy Shore line must top your bucket list! The varied coast line within the Cliffs of Fundy GeoPark is one of the most diverse areas to explore. Each beach offers walkable terrain and captivating subject matter. The images here are of the Clarke Head guided tour on offer through Tide RollersContinue reading “Looking for Drama in Your Landscape Photographs?”
Eatonville Day Use Area Trails
Sunday afternoon, sunshine and time to spare… we took a drive to Eatonville. There is plenty of parking near the gate and a well-maintained path leads to the trailhead just past the Eatonville Bunkhouse. Heading down the hill the interpretive board provides detailed trail information about the various worthwhile look off points. I was hereContinue reading “Eatonville Day Use Area Trails”
Fox Point Beach to Diligent River
Besides my first aid kit and plenty of water I like to leave a bit of room in my backpack for my sense of adventure. Today’s beach excursion was timed carefully to see how long we would have to get past the large seaweed covered rocks on the east side of FoxPoint Beach, explore theContinue reading “Fox Point Beach to Diligent River”
Weathered Wood Study
I love roaming the beaches, especially when I come across old warf remnants weathered by wind, sun and the relentless tides. These amazing natural sculptures are found at the mouth of the Bass River. Imagine the stories these posts could tell! Happy Thursday, Anna
Fox Point Beach Hike
The parking area overlooking Fox Point Beach is just large enough for three or four vehicles. A short walk through a forested area takes us to this vast and diverse beach. I always love exploring this beach. The first time I came was early April 2021. I was fascinated by the cliffs, rock formations, seaweedContinue reading “Fox Point Beach Hike”
Down to the beach we venture…
Soley Cove has become a go-to destination, best explored during the low tide window! It was perfect beach walk weather, not too hot, a little ubreeze and the tide just about to turn. The decision to walk out on the muddy ocean floor might not have been the smartest… but you live and you learn😊Continue reading “Down to the beach we venture…”
With the rain today it was time to spend some downtime planning… heading out early tomorrow for a beach excursion. Can’t wait to compare this cliff image with tomorrow’s. Based on past experiences the sandstone will be saturated with moisture and present even more vivid colours… check back tomorrow to see if I am correct.
Forest Bathing at Wards Falls
The forest and waterfall were calling today… Wards Falls is always a great destination. My focus today was on contrasting and comparing the various stages of wildflowers and emergence of foliage. The woodland trail was almost dried up reminding us of how much we need moisture to keep wildfires at bay. This will be theContinue reading “Forest Bathing at Wards Falls”
Video Flashback: Refugee Cove
May 18th, 2022 – my first ever hike to Refugee Cove! It was a glorious day, one year ago… I will blame this hike on planting the idea of exploring the Cape Chignecto Coastal Trail. It only took a year to realize my dream and meet my personal goal.
Clarke Head in rain and as the sun breaks through the clouds…
The beach is always more impressive with dramatic skies! Despite the cloud cover the views were impressive with Cape Split clearly visible. Just as we arrived at Clarke Head arch the clouds burst and we were doused with rain and hail. The moisture intensified the colours of the cliffs and beach rocks even more! AndContinue reading “Clarke Head in rain and as the sun breaks through the clouds…”
The View from Partridge Island…
… at sunset looking toward Cape Sharp. Good night, world.
Moody sky, unobstructed view of Five Islands and a vast beach to explore… great ingredients for a photo excursion… Happy Monday, Anna
Thomas Cove Economy Trail Loop at Low Tide
A sunny afternoon called for a nature outing. We chose Thomas Cove and were treated to low tide views and perfect conditions to explore not only the woodlands on top of the cliff but also the ocean floor. We used the rope to access the sandstone without incident. I had lost my footing last timeContinue reading “Thomas Cove Economy Trail Loop at Low Tide”
Just a few close ups from recent excursions…
…clumps of moss, weathered driftwood, shelf fungi, newly emerged plants and a spiral lichen! Nature presents her gifts! Enjoy your Saturday. Best wishes, Anna
Cape Chignecto Provincial Park Coastal Trail – Final Section
Monday morning arrived with soft light and no rain. Breakfast was the quickest affair yet and with no tents to air or dry out we were back on the trail shortly after 7:30 am. 8 km to go… the finish line was so close! With positive energy we forged ahead fully aware of the oneContinue reading “Cape Chignecto Provincial Park Coastal Trail – Final Section”
Cape Chignecto Provincial Park – Instalment 3: Epic Vistas… Too Many to Count!
Rejuvenated by a restful night adjacent to the running water at Big Bald Rock Camp Sites the trek continued Sunday morning. Past the bridge we immediately came across a large boggy section that took skill in navigating to ensure relatively dry boots. I classify Day Three of our hike the one with the most magnificentContinue reading “Cape Chignecto Provincial Park – Instalment 3: Epic Vistas… Too Many to Count!”
Cape Chignecto Provincial Park Hike – Instalment 2
After 15 km of ascends and descents through springtime woodlands on Friday and a chilly night below the full moon, we woke up early to frost-kissed leaves. Brian estimated that it got to -3 to -5C. I believe it… the way the cold kept creeping up from my lower back to my shoulders was annoying.Continue reading “Cape Chignecto Provincial Park Hike – Instalment 2”
Recounting the Memories: Cape Chignecto – Day 1
When you wake up one morning in February thinking you should circumnavigate Cape Chignecto you either shake your head and ignore the silly thought or you start conditioning. I first found myself a hiking partner with Cape Chignecto experience and then started training. Each journey starts with a single step and the preparation for meContinue reading “Recounting the Memories: Cape Chignecto – Day 1”
Definitely NO Walk in the Park…
Getting home was equally exciting… Ash had her puppies early this morning! She is an awesome mom! A proper hike report (in instalments) is forthcoming. I am sorting and editing images and preparing a detailed report. Thank you for your interest in achieving this very personal goal of mine! I made it, shoulders are aContinue reading “Definitely NO Walk in the Park…”
