Wholesome Nova Scotia

Posted on Updated on

by David HoeWe spent yesterday and today exploring the countryside within 2 hours of Halifax: Peggy’s Cove is a picturesque fishing village near Halifax which was in world headlines in 1998 as the site of the Swissair 111 disaster. This clip is at the memorial site along the ruggedly beautiful, windswept coast: Peggy’s Cove  has the most-photographed lighthouse in Canada, and some of the most amazing granite shoreline: the remnants of Himalayan-height mountains worn by 300+ million years of weather and glaciers.

  • Another hour west along Nova Scotia’s “south shore” is another photographer’s dream village, Lunenberg, with its colorful old buildings and working wharfs:
  • Here is a view of the lobster fishing gear colorfully arrayed.
  • Driving north an hour from Halifax into the lushly fertile Annapolis Valley, we stumbled upon the most magical, enchanted garden I have ever seen. The “Tangled Garden” was begun by Beverly and her husband 23 years ago, and is clearly a labor of love. The products the make and sell online a well worth every penny.
    Having all the windows in the shop willed with "stained glass" adds an extra element of magic

    There is a beautifully natural interplay of stone and garden
