The Nova Scotia Coastline



Nova Scotia

Something about Nova Scotia reminded us of Cornwall, with its rugged coastline and charming coves. Even the old concrete fortifications reminded us of home - although in the UK, all the metal has long since been stolen for its scrap value.

But we visited in January - and the deep freeze gave a very alien feel to the landscape. We don't usually get winters cold enough to freeze the sea, whereas every damp rock on the Halifax coast seemed to quickly become coated in a sheet of ice.

We didn't have long on Canada's Atlantic coast - just enough time for a bright and bracing walk - but I hope I'll have chance to return for longer to this beautiful area.

What a harsh coastline! Hardy people live here. Love that 'boat sprite' with the frozen ice waves.

Beautiful! This is where I am from! What were you doing there? (Apologies if I missed the backstory.)

I'll be honest, since leaving Canada I haven't missed the ice very much. But it is very pretty on a crisp, clear day.

brrrr - well, that's cooled me down after the lovely, almost summery day we've just had:)

I'm in love! I grew up in Maine and it looks very much like these photos. What great memories in every photo. Thanks!
