Thomas’ Cove Coastal Reserve – part one

Saturday, July 22nd, 2006

For some odd reason, I’ve had some difficulty trying to figure out how to write about Thomas’ Cove. What to say and which photos to use to describe this special place? I suppose the best place to begin is by writing something dry and mundane about the location. Thomas’ Cove is located on the Bay […]

rocks and waves

Tuesday, July 18th, 2006

This morning, I was going to post part two of our Sunday hikes at Kejimkujik National Park (the interior section), but we’re just taking off for the day, so instead, here’s a scene from yesterday’s walks on beaches in the Bridgewater area. I’ll return to the Keji hikes tonight or tomorrow. Yesterday, we returned to […]

finding treasure at kejimkujik

Tuesday, July 18th, 2006

We spent Sunday hiking on three trails at Kejimkujik National Park. In this post, I’ll just write a bit about the first trail hiked — the Gold Mines trail. It’s just a short trail that leads through a lowland forest. It’s a self-guided tour with small signboards describing the history of gold mining on the […]

kejimkujik seaside adjunct

Yesterday, we spent most of the afternoon at the Kejimkujik Seaside Adjunct which, although separated by some distance, is part of the Kejimkujik National Park. It’s located about 25 km. southwest of Liverpool, NS. Our intention was to hike the longer coastal loop, but after about 15 minutes of walking over the barrens and bogs […]

scenes from joggins fossil cliffs

Thursday, July 13th, 2006

After our hike to Wards Falls, we stopped off at the Joggins fossil cliffs before returning to Amherst. We’ve visited the cliffs several times in the past, but this time we came to walk the beaches and enjoy the incredible vistas rather than look for fossils (see above – click for larger view). Most people […]

wards falls

Thursday, July 13th, 2006

There’s a steady rain coming down, so we’re indoors taking a break and doing a bit of reading, writing and catching up on things. Tomorrow, we should be back into sunny weather, so we’ll be able to carry on with our hiking and explorations. Today, I’ll do some catching up on photo uploading and posting […]

bread loaf rock

Thursday, April 6th, 2006

It seems that there are some fellow rock lovers among us, so I thought I’d post a photo of a rock mentioned in my comments to a recent post. Unfortunately, this photo doesn’t quite do justice to this immense rock which may be found atop one of the the higher ridges on the Shoreline Centennial […]
