Big News.... I've moved !

I've moved my blog over to WordPress. I hope you'll come along!  If you want to follow along here's the link. I'm still working at setting the blog up exactly the way I want it so I hope you'll have patience while I work through all the blips.

Post Tropical Storm Arthur

It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.
C. S. Lewis

We found this robin's nest in our grapevine the day after post tropical storm Arthur came through in July. They remained in the nest for twelve days and then were gone.

The Three Churches of Mahone Bay

I like the silent church before the service begins, better than any preaching. Ralph Waldo Emerson 

In the stillness of the early morning, the view of the three churches is breathtaking

I love the scenery in Mahone Bay, a picturesque little town on Nova Scotia’s south shore. People come from all over to see these three churches. I had plans to go to a service in each one of the churches over the summer with a friend, but unfortunately life got in the way. I'm a little anxious to see the inside of these magnificent buildings. I guess I'll have to wait.

The Ocean

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.~~~Mother Teresa

These photos were taken recently on a trip to the shore. Beautiful Crescent Beach. 

I love the white sandy beach!

Wile's Carding Mill, Bridgewater

Snow is so common that I have omitted to note its falling at least two days out of Three.
William Henry Ashley

With the new fallen snow in Bridgewater, I couldn't help but take a few photos of the old carding mill....Lovely!


There was a lot of water coming down over the dam.

You can't get too much winter in the winter. ~~Robert Frost

I'm not so sure I agree with Robert Frost. This beaver dam at Whetstone Lake looks pretty lonely in the winter.

The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man.  ~Author Unknown

I love these oddities in nature. Here's a rock my husband found embedded into the root of a small tree. I think it's kind of neat!
