We have so many amazing views of the ocean along the South Shore of Nova Scotia. You can take a different route every day or follow some of your favourite drives. I never get tired of it!


A beautiful Sunday afternoon, and after lunch with friends we went for a drive along the coast. This time to Oceanview Gardens and Nursery in Chester. This is a unique nursery with just about anything imaginable. Not only do they carry your typical garden supplies and plants and flowers, but they have giftware, statues and furniture and unique things that I’m sure couldn’t be found anywhere else.

It’s not a spot I would probably purchase things…I just love to look!!!

Here are a few things that caught my eye today…

We finished our drive with dinner at the Fish Shack in Lunenburg with an amazing view. Picton Castle and Bluenose and the best fish and chips around!!



Anxiously waiting…

Oh the anticipation…

It’s been 5 years. FIVE years since I’ve seen this beauty in bloom and it looks like it’s gonna pop any day.


It’s a rainy day here along the South Shore and surprisingly, I’m not minding it. We have been landscaping and gardening, I bought a few flowers yesterday and potted them and this morning in the rain, everything looks so beautiful, so vibrant and rich in color. Even our poor excuse for a lawn right now looks lush and green.

Back to my crab tree. I love trees that bud and blossom. I have two types of crab trees on my front lawn that I’ve always enjoyed especially during the blooming period in late May. BUT, the last time I saw them bloom was the Spring of 2010 before we went on Expat Assignment. So…I am anxiously waiting for them to pop!
