The Ovens

The Sea Caves  called “the ovens” are amazing especially at high tide when the water is washing in and out and creating cannon like noises. However tonight, it was low tide, and even though the views were spectacular it didn’t quite have the effect if it were high tide.

It’s a beautiful spot to go for a walk and enjoy the ocean anytime.

Beach Day

Beautiful pristine water, white sandy beach. One of my favourite beaches along the South Shore and today was a gorgeous day. It’s the kind of day you want at the beach and was perfect to show our nephew and his wife. She has never been to Nova Scotia let alone step foot in to the Atlantic Ocean. We were so happy to be able to show them one of many reasons Nova Scotian’s are proud of their beaches.

Balance is the key

Balance is the key to a happy, fulfilling life. Hard work and leisure, a lot of one and not too much of the other. An appreciation and enjoyment of both.

Today we went on a small hike to Balancing Rock in Tiverton, NS.

IMG_5015It’s a very easy groomed 2.5-km trail and 235-step staircase that leads to a platform with view of the Balancing Rock and St. Mary’s Bay. Just beautiful. This 9 meter high rock is a part of the North Mountain columnar basalt rocks which forms the cliffs along St. Mary’s Bay and the Bay of Fundy.
