'Go West Young Man.....'


Well, with the exception of the 'young' part,
that is exactly what we did!!


We went through all of the above communities yesterday to get to Crystal Crescent Beach
which is probably 60 km from our house heading in a westerly direction.

This is what we saw:


There are three white sandy crescent beaches from which to choose.


We decided on the second one and had it to ourselves.


The third beach is a nudist beach.
We thought it was a bit too chilly to go there!
But that didn't stop others as there was a steady steam of hikers
heading over the hill to the third beach.
BR-R-R-R-R


Sophie was beyond herself with joy!
There was water, sand, Mr.Orangie, Ron, Jim
in any order she wished to use!!


It was a beautiful day and the water was crystal clear......but COLD.


We opted to sit/lie down on the sand and listen to the faint surf,
and to Sophie who was intent on digging a hole all the way to China.

  1. Very beautiful indeed... the water looks really lovely. I love all the "cove" names en route - a veritable cacophony of coves! Cold weather+nude beach would bring on a "Seinfeld" shrinkage moment!

    1. LOL! Ron mentioned that I should include that 'George Costanza' moment from Seinfeld!! I better start listening to him!
      Have a great day, Craig.

    1. Hi Frances! This shore is so different from our shore......less rugged and more calm.
      We wear these socks every day. they are so comfortable and light weight. Plus the colours are lively!!

    1. It was good to go to this area, as we hadn't in a few years. You guys know all about the good effects of these 'day trips', eh? Pretty soon you will starting up again I bet.
      Sophie would have made it to China had we stayed longer.
      Have a good day, Martha.

    1. Sophie is all about fun, Joyce!
      Lots of 'coves' in Nova Scotia since it is almost completely surrounded by water.
