Nova Scotia

We have only had internet occasionally the last week or so. As I write this we are on the west coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. (Newfoundland was officially renamed Newfoundland and Labrador in 2001.)

After Fundy National Park, we headed over to Nova Scotia (which is not an island but a peninsula – no bridges or ferrys were required.) A couple of highlights follow.

Joggins Fossil Cliffs:

We took a guided tour and learned how to better spot fossils. Joggins is known for the large number of 300 million year old tree fossils, along with other plants and insects.

In Grand Pre´ we learned the story of the Acadians and waded into the mud of the Bay of Fundy (it took a little getting used to the sucking feeling and two days to get the mud out from under my toenails.)

 

We had spectacular weather passing through Anapolis Royal. We hung out at Fort Anne and enjoyed the sunshine and the views.

 

We had a grand adventure on Digby Neck. (Some day I'm going to do a blog post with pictures from all of the Balancing Rocks we have seen!)

 

Still more to come from Nova Scotia …

  1. Oh boy, it’s ALL so beautiful! So envious yet again! Ooo, the mud, though. After wading back out of it, how’d you clean your feet off to get your shoes back on? LOL

    1. You are so sweet, Sherrill! Luckily, we were camping near the beach so we could get back to the shower building before we had to put our shoes back on. That mud is sticky, though – you have to scrub it! It was part of the adventure, though, so I’m not complaining.

  2. Very different photos this time! So cooool! Did you use a special filter or editing? Can’t wait to see more! Have fun!!

    1. Thanks, Aunt Nancy! I did get a little carried away with the filters when I was editing (I was bored in the car one day.) I mostly use Camera+ on my iPad but all of the pictures were taken with my Lumia 920.
