Tall Ship

I took this picture of the brig Fryderyk Chopin at a wharf in Lunenburg harbour. The ship was built in Gdansk Poland in 1992.

Cape Split

Cape Split is a long narrow peninsula that juts out into the Bay of Fundy. It's an 8 kilometre trek through evergreen and hardwood forests climbing over roots and fallen trees with sadistic hikers telling you that you've only got 15 more minutes to go to the end of the trail. The view at the end of the walk is worth it

Look Off

A view of a small part of the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia from the Look Off on the North Mountain.

Knot for Sale

I took the macro lens for a walk this morning.


One of our Rites of Spring is a visit to the local greenhouses. This display of geraniums helped me forget that it was just 5 degrees celsius outside.
