The floral emblem on Nova Scotia - Pitcher Plant. Sorry I missed the floral part of these but the colours are irresistible.

As well as other feats of control and coordination this guy balanced, tossed, caught and rolled this teapot around on a stick for several minutes.

Port Joli beach

Wonderful beach at Port Joli - the shallow waters of the bay allow the water to warm up for enjoyable swimming - seemingly a rarity along the ocean coast.

Sandy Cove

Lucky for us there was a storm last night which finally brought on some of that famed Nova Scotia fog - it made our visit to Sandy Cove magical as it rolled in and out.

View from Blomidon

Blomidon is a corruption of "blow me down" or so they say.
We had a long hike through the park today and met maybe three other people - quiet place.
Beautiful vistas, rockhounding on the shore and good swimming the area too.

A sunny day at Rainy Cove

I am always captivated and entranced by flocking birds. Such an aesthetic, behavioural and mathematical mystery.

The Avon River at low tide - just behind the Avon River Heritage Museum. A beautiful area of rolling hills, curved roads, big tides and friendly people. My father in law, Alex Farquhar, took my wife, Sarah, and I on a tour of family homesteads. Sarah's ancestors came here in 1760 - her great grandfather's cradle is in the museum.

Point Pleasant Park Lamp

The lamp standards in Point Pleasant Park were made in Scotland 100 years ago. I suspect they were originally gas then converted.
