Stuck in the Fundy Mud

Stuck in the Fundy Mud

I’m here relaxing and recuperating from my TKR surgery (total knee replacement) and looking forward to the day I get out and about in anything other than a cane shuffling, slow walking manner.I’m wondering what the summer may bring, which,if all goes well  may be  participating for the second time in the Not Since Moses  Mud Run held yearly in Five Islands  For some it may be a competitive  5 or 10k run.But for most, myself included, it’s an entertaining,…

Burntcoat Head Park

Burntcoat Head Park

One of the spots I love  to poke around  is Burntcoat Head  Park in Noel, Hants County. This park is just another of the special gifts the Bay of Fundy offers up for us. Known world wide for having the highest tides on earth, Burntcoat Head entered the Guinness Books of World Records in 1975 as having that designation. However,other communities communities along the Bay disputed the fact  and even Ungava Bay in Northern Quebec wanted to lay claim to…

Winter Walk to Crystal Falls

Winter Walk to Crystal Falls

Today was positively balmy for a January day with temperatures above freezing-a welcome relief from the bone chilling weather  we experienced last week. So, we decided to try and get down to Crystal Falls, just south of Greenwood. I don’t recommend it this time of year if there is ice or snow on the ground. Don’t get me wrong. The walk up to the point of descending to the falls was fine. The snow wasn’t deep at all, and it…

Alright. You neither know nor care where Colchester County is, right? I’m telling you anyway, because its just a beautiful part of the province.

Hiking the Crystal Falls Trail

Hiking the Crystal Falls Trail

I first heard about the Crystal Falls trail when perusing fellow blogger Laura Churchill Duke’s write up on Valley Family Fun, so on a day off hubby and I decided to give it a go. Laura had already gotten good directions from the Kingston Visitor Centre-we used those. I have included them below. Autumn is my favorite time of year and I love it especially for getting outdoors and exploring. Directions to  the Crystal Falls Trail Take Exit 17 to…

The Mighty Bay of Fundy

The Mighty Bay of Fundy

Nova Scotia’s Mighty Bay of Fundy:  Nova Scotia, My Heart and My Home   Years ago, as a newly wed, my husband was offered an interview with a company in British Columbia. That interview hinted at wonderful opportunities and a good life. How did I take this exciting news? I cried. I cried for days at the very thought of moving from Nova Scotia. Finally, my husband cancelled the interview.   And, after all this time, I still wouldn’t want…

Malagash’s Blue Sea Beach Provincial Park

Malagash’s Blue Sea Beach Provincial Park

My plan was to go to the  beach.Malagash’s Blue Sea Beach specifically. That was my plan. And I got there, although not to laze around on the sand in the sun. It wasn’t that kind of day. It was  a day for exploring. Everyday is a day for exploring, isn’t it? Rain,wind snow, everyday lends itself to some kind of unknown adventure, be it low key or thrilling. Today was low key. What was once privately owned farmland,Malagash’s Blue Sea…

Delaps Cove Wilderness Trails-The Bohaker Trail

Delaps Cove Wilderness Trails-The Bohaker Trail

It”s been years since I’ve done the Bohaker Trail in Delaps Cove in Annapolis County . I remembered it was  a fairly short hike and that there was a point along the trail where one could see the Bay of Fundy and a waterfall at the same time. The trail was indeed short-just over 2 km, and that includes a careful decent to the bottom of the falls. Once again, a perfect day. No bugs. No rain. No blistering heat….
