A Man and His Rope…

The picture tells the story… when you wonder if it was a wise choice to pick up the washed up rope and drag it back to the car for 8 km… Happy Sunday, Anna

Recipe for a Great Sunday

The best way to reconnect with a friend after not seeing each other for a while is during a crisp winter morning at -11C with the sun shining brightly! Try it some time… it’s good for the soul! Happy Sunday from the Bay of Fundy, Anna

Frosty Saturday in Magical Light

The snow had stopped and the sun tried to break through the clouds this morning making for a surreal landscape experience. The chilly beach walk presented a strong contrast between silvery greys against colour-infused close ups. Wishing you all a restful weekend, Anna

Phinney Green in January

Yes, it’s January 18th and we are exploring the Cliffs of Fundy GeoPark beaches! I had planned a hike a little closer to Parrsboro but after the snow and rain we had last weekend access was too uncertain. Instead we carpooled to Phinney Green, about 10 minutes further down shore toward Advocate Harbour. With fiveContinue reading “Phinney Green in January”

Memories are Golden…

…and so are images of favourite beach hikes. The Soley Cove group hike scheduled for today was cancelled due to freezing rain and overall inclement weather that has lasted all weekend. I took time to reminisce and decided to share images of this spectacular destination. I visited four times last summer and the landscape alwaysContinue reading “Memories are Golden…”

Reflections on a Grey Day

Yesterday morning’s snow had nearly melted by mid- afternoon. I donned my rubber boots for a walk about town and captured the inner harbour bathed in diffused light and natural grey scale any artist would love to explore. The circular slushy tracks caught my attention for their pattern and texture. I do look forward toContinue reading “Reflections on a Grey Day”

Fox Point Beach as The Tide Recedes

Fox Point Beach is located in the small community of Fox River. From the first time I visited here it has always held special attraction for me. Andy Goldsworthy, English sculptor, photographer, and environmentalist who produces site-specific sculptures and land art situated in natural and urban settings has actually worked on this particular beach. IContinue reading “Fox Point Beach as The Tide Recedes”

Wasson’s Bluff Excursion

I kicked off a new and free hiking program in Parrsboro today. The fact that one hiker showed up means that it is already a success! Maddie and I set out to Wasson’s Bluff as planned. But as we arrived at the beach we assessed our situation in relation to the tide and decided toContinue reading “Wasson’s Bluff Excursion”

The Last Day of 2022

From first light till sunset (which was not too memorable nor visible) it was a perfect day to say good bye to 2022. There was just enough time to get in one more walk at Five Islands Lighthouse Park Beach complete with collecting 7 lbs of trash. Good night world! See you in 2023! BestContinue reading “The Last Day of 2022”

Best Birthday Ever!

What does a cargo space in our SUV stuffed with beach trash have to do with the best birthday ever? It signifies the sense of community along the Parrsboro shore where friends come together and pitch in to reduce trash along the Bay of Fundy.. Together, in 2.5 hours, we pulled 175.5 lbs of trashContinue reading “Best Birthday Ever!”

Storm Day

The predicted storm arrived earlier than expected. The preparations this time around involve a bit more than usual with Christmas just a couple days away. I was able to tear myself away from the kitchen for a little while to make my way to Ottawa House Beach. I am so glad I got outside… TheContinue reading “Storm Day”

“Old Man” Sea Stack Up Close and Personal

No matter the time of day or year this impressive landmark on the way to Clarke Head always calls for attention. Enjoy!

Just One More Beach at Golden Hour

It’s hard to believe that it’s St. Nicholas Eve. The day was filled with an abundance of sunshine. My friend and I ventured out to Phinney Green for an invigorating walk along the cliffs toward Brookville. The tide had not yet turned when we reached the car so on the way back to Parrsboro weContinue reading “Just One More Beach at Golden Hour”

November Pilgrimage…

When the day begins with glorious colour it calls for a special outing. November is nearing its end and due to my persistent shoulder injury I have not ventured far. But I needed to prove to myself that I was ready to get back into shape. Clarke Head was calling…. and my backpack was waiting.Continue reading “November Pilgrimage…”

Near Sunset

The tidal river at the bottom of our backyard was teeming with Canada Geese and ducks just seconds before I made the image above. No matter how carefully I try to approach it takes only one twig to snap under my foot and dozens of water birds take flight! With the large flock loudly honkingContinue reading “Near Sunset”

A Contemplative Moment…

…while crossing the bridge over the Parrsboro Aboiteau. While I enjoy this view daily, this afternoon reminded me of how much interest and beauty is all around. I zoomed in on special spots to capture ripples on the surface, the edge of the shore and rocks. I love these Zen moments… especially when I didn’tContinue reading “A Contemplative Moment…”

Environmental Textures

The day started out windy but with the promise of sunshine. By early afternoon we actually had some large snowflakes flying past the windows but the moisture soon turned to rain. Instead of exploring nature at one of the beaches I perused my vast image library and got “stuck” on these eye catching geological textures.Continue reading “Environmental Textures”

Witnessing the Tide Come In

The weather today was warm and dry, perfect for taking my friend out for a belated birthday beach excursion. Phinney Green is always a great place to listen to the waves and watch the tide roll in. The light was soft and magical… …and the blue sky emerged with high tide early afternoon. Wishing everyoneContinue reading “Witnessing the Tide Come In”

Lunar Eclipse

The Blood Moon Eclipse was well under way by the time we arrived at Partridge Island Beach this morning… Getting out of the car was a challenge. The wind was howling as you can hear on the video. We stayed until the moon set behind the cliffs and never saw it emerging after it wasContinue reading “Lunar Eclipse”
