Canada's Ocean Playground. As we flew in on Tuesday morning, the landscape was marked by one lake, river, stream, creek and pond. We had found a small cottage called Richard's Place through HomeAway.com for our stay. The cottage was on a 24 acre lake named Molega Lake where Richard and his Burmese Mountain dog, Bear, served as our gracious hosts.
Our plan was to have a central point of operations from where we could choose and visit various destinations. Nova Scotia is shaped a bit like a lobster claw and we were in the bottom piece, on the east side. In the eight days we were there, we traveled over 1200 miles. We went as far north as the Bay of Fundy, west to Digby Neck and up and down the eastern coast hitting Mahone Bay, Blue Rocks, Lunenburg and Peggy's Cove.
If I were a really astute blogger I would insert right here a map of Nova Scotia with little arrows to show you the destinations we hit.
Sorry. You are not going to get that here. Find an atlas or google it. You'll get the picture.
This is the small fishing village of Blue Rocks. The water is their driveway essentially. They live right on the rocks, perched above and around the very water from where they draw their livelihood. Simple and functional.
The fog slowly rolled in across the landscape while we were there and gave us a true idea of what it must be like to live there year round, dependent upon the sea's force and flow. One of our favorite spots we visited.
Okay. That's all you get today. I can tell you're getting spoiled by all the photos. And on that note, thanks for everyone's sweet words about the photos from the other day. A girl when she needs a boost should really post her picture more often.
Thanks for enduring the vacation slide show. And without obligatory snacks too. Wow. Real internet friends.
