Hopewell Rocks, New Brunswick, Canada

This was the first time I trekked down to the rocks.  You can see the water lapping
onto the muddy shoreline.  The tide was on its way out and the fog was hovering
all across the Bay of Fundy.

This was the second time I made the trek about an hour later than the picture above.
The tide had moved out further.

Hopewell Rocks, New Brunswick

On the path way to find Hopewell Rocks at The Bay of Funday,
you pass through Fern Gully!

Before you get to all the rocks you get a sneak peek.
We were arriving when the tide was on its way out, but you can see the marks
on the rocks where the tide was!

The Bay of Funday's claim to fame?
The highest tides in the world!

Just following the path to Hopewell Rocks, is an adventure
in itself!
I loved the way this picture was a little out of focus in the 
tree tops.  It gave you a sense of a fairytale.

Halifax, Nova Scotia ~ Curious sights

The afternoon we were allotted to spend in Halifax was rainy and drizzly and bluh 
as far as the weather was concerned.  
The next morning as we were heading out of town just after breakfast the clouds were
breaking up and the sun was on its way out to shine.
I got the opportunity to snap this surreal shot displaying Halifax 
with its terrific mixture of great old buildings and state of the art new buildings.

The Halifax wave also doubled as an umbrealla.

A memorial to a Portuguese explorer named Joao Alvares Fagundes.
He landed in Halifax in 1520.

Halifax, Nova Scotia Old and New along the waterfront

Walking along this street you were taken back in time.....

The old and new were combined to make some fine shopping areas.

A great place for a stroll.

The public humiliation spot?

Around every corner you can find a glimpse of the harbor.

Halifax Waterfront, Nova Scotia

Theodore Too!
Our allotted time for Halifax was rainy and dreary but we did get a quick glimpse
of the waterfront and all it has to offer.  
Hopefully we'll return to enjoy it all on a sunny day!

Theodore Too cannot be missed along side the dock or out in the middle of the harbor
of Halifax.

Along the Halifax Waterfront you can find all the usual tourist foods
along with many opportunities to get out on the water.

The Sailor Statue
Dedicated to Valiant young Canadian sailors who served in War and Peace times.

What else is going on around the world?

St. Paul's Anglican Church, Halifax, Nova Scotia - Beauty

I had the Church to myself.
I'm sure somebody was hidden somewhere in a back room, but I was grateful
to look around at the many details without feeling hurried.

Jesus - Fishing for men
Artwork today is dim to the artwork in many old Churches.
I believe there's many who can produce great art, but 
the small issue of funding to pay for it is another subject.

The colors are so vibrant!

The longer you stare at this the more details you discover.

The pipe organ was silent on my visit, but I can imagine the sounds!
Look around at the many details.
The eagle
The lectern
The windows
The woodwork

A beautiful place to Worship God.

Halifax Citadel ~ Living Quarters, Nova Scotia

Home sweet home for the cadets at the citadel. 
Tidy and a place for the all the necessitities.

A little love of country art work painted on the wall.

No night stands so to make the most of space you have overhead night stands.....

Who doesn't love a little porch sitting on a nice quite evening
while listening to some tunes.
