Saturday Morning Post

Here, There, And Everywhere This Past Month.....

An Anglican 'church kneeler' I found in an antiques shop in Port Williams, Nova Scotia.
It is in the shop now.

THE best fruit crisps/crumbles and pies in all of Nova Scotia
 can be found here in Grand Pre, Nova Scotia.
We've been going here for years.

A very lonely Tiger Lily growing near our driveway earlier this summer.

The MacDonald House as seen from Stoney Beach in Lawrencetown, N.S.

The 'Look Off' in King's County, N.S.
It is said that five counties can be seen from this location.

At Scott's Bay, N.S a few weeks ago.
It was the first time we were here. It was covered in very small rocks.
Sophie LOVED swimming here.

 This cute little place is down the road from about 10 km.
It has since become 'the Krooked House Art Shop'.
It is in Seaforth, N.S.

Queen Anne's Lace and Bumblebee...

River grass along the Lawrencetown River at dusk.

These three 'rock hunters' were at Scott's Bay when we arrived 
and were there when we left a couple hours later.
They were looking for the semi-precious stone called Agate
which is very prevalent in this area.

Found this lobster trap and hull of a row boat
at the Acadian Cafe in West Chezzetcook, N.S.
just down the road a ways from us.

A better view of the row boat. Just look at all the coats of different paint
this had had over the years.


  1. My pick o-the-day, the lookout, what a grand place to view everything and much more, but coming a close second by a nose, was the reflection of the rushes/ river grasses. Almost a photo finish for selection!!!

  2. A fascinating range of photos Jim. But the old boat is superb with those colours peeking through the dirt!

  3. It looks like you 3 have been out and about a lot this summer! Thanks for sharing :-)

  4. There is beauty in every corner of this world; and you certainly know how to find it.

  5. Fab photos as always, especially the King's County view and that row boat. And I'm interested in the agate pickers shot too. I spent my childhood picking agates off gravel roads in Manitoba -- the local rock shop would pay $1 per pound for them. Good money when you were a kid!

  6. Wonderful photos, Jim! That boat hull is fabulous! Your photo of it will preserve it long after it has rotted away!

  7. you live in such a gorgeous place. wonderful photos!


Hey, I really like your comments and appreciate the time you took to do so.
