On the shores of Nova Scotia the sun shone brightly yesterday , the breeze told us that fall has arrived but the air was fresh and pure and yes good for the soul. Bill and I set off just after lunch for the small village of Fishermans Harbour ,I had never ventured this far on this shore so it was an adventure . Port Bickerton and Fishermans Harbour have a rugged coast being on the Atlantic Ocean you often deal with fog but thankfully there was none yesterday and our view was perfect .Would you like to see some photos of this rugged beauty ?
In these areas of the province you will see lots of little wharves for the fishermen to dock their boats . You will also see plenty of these .
Nova Scotia has some of the best lobster to be found , the Atlantic Ocean is cold so the lobster is tastier in my opinion than warm water lobster ,yum!
I am not sure what type of seaweed this is but it is a lovely golden color and really was pretty with the contrast of the gorgeous blue skies , don't you love those wispy clouds .
This photo shows the color a little better plus the lovely rocky coast , did I tell you I love rocks , well here is a really neat one I just have to share .
Can you see the layers of different colors , probably not that well but it was so neat , you may be wondering if I took some rocks home , well of course I did , none this large of course but I was so impressed with the number of really flat rocks , I mean as flat and smooth as a piece of paper so I did take one home with the plans on making a welcome sign . I only found one very small piece of blue beach glass which surprised me .
Can you see it way off in the distance , well just down this gravel road about 1.8 km. is a lighthouse that is open to tourists , unfortunately when we arrived they were closing for the day but they did allow us to take a photo .
This is a little different shape lighthouse than I am accustomed to seeing but lovely all the same. We plan on going back someday to see it when it is open so we can explore inside.
And just so you won't think I gave up sewing entirely I have started working on this small mini from the Fon's and Porter magazine for May/June .I have all of the applique completed as well as the little pieces for the border just need to sew them all together now ;-)
I hope you enjoyed my Sunday along the shores of Nova Scotia and I hope you have a wonderful day doing something good for the soul !!
