LaHave River Sunset Shot

My home province of Nova Scotia is no stranger to some amazing sunsets. I took this shot from the deck of a ferry as we made the short crossing. This was a gorgeous end to a picture perfect day on the province’s South Shore.

Canada 150: A Song, A Video, and Some Photos

Posted by on Jun 15, 2017 in Canada, Destinations, Travel Photo Thursday | 8 comments

Canada 150

Canada 150 is all the talk in Canada this year, and the big day, July 1st, is fast approaching. Welcome to week 333 (6/15/2017) of Travel Photo Thursday. This week have fun listening to the Canada 150 song, a 2-minute video of Canadian moments (not my video), and photos that I’ve taken when I’ve been traveling around and spending time in my country over the past few years. I won’t be in Canada on July 1st to celebrate Canada 150, but I will be arriving in Vancouver on August 8th, and then onto Nova Scotia on August 22nd. Indy and I will be taking up residence in beautiful Annapolis Royal at least for a little while 🙂 Enjoy the song, the moments, and the photos.

Halifax Central Library

Halifax Central Library

This week we’re visiting the Halifax Central Library. Located kitty corner to the Halifax Memorial Library (the old library), it’s one of the newest buildings in the downtown core, opened to much excitement and anticipation on December 13, 2014. Welcome to week 294 (9/22/2016) of Travel Photo Thursday. I’m sorry to have missed last week. I came down with a miserable cold, which is still lingering. Let’s have a look at this fab building and a welcome addition to our city. If you missed week 293; The Nova Center, check it out here.

We’re pretty easy going here at BTS, but please remember to follow a few guidelines…

Halifax Memorial Library

Here’s a photo of our old library, and it seems like it has always been old! The building opened in 1951 as a memorial to World War casualties. The staff here did a great job of offering a plethora of useful services to the public in a crowded and dusty space. The statue of Winston Churchill is still outside. I’m not sure what is going to happen to the building or Winston. For the moment, it’s empty, and Sir Churchill seems to be holding down the fort.

Halifax: Nova Center is Born

Posted by on Sep 8, 2016 in Canada, Destinations, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Travel Photo Thursday | 8 comments

Downtown Halifax is changing, and one of those big changes is the Nova Center construction on Argyle Street in the city’s downtown core. There’s a lot of controversy surrounding this new development, and it has changed the character and ambiance of one of Halifax’s best-known bar streets. Welcome to week 293 of Travel Photo Thursday. Let’s have a stroll down Argyle Street and see what’s all the fuss.

Argyle Street

The bars lining both sides of Argyle Street were quiet on this Sunday afternoon. That probably had something to do with the summer heat and a perfect beach day. Who’s going to sit in a bar when you can sit in the sand, eh? The brick building just at the end of the patio is Halifax’s Neptune Theater. The theater has a good reputation, and when I lived in Halifax, I always had a season ticket. The most memorable performance I ever saw here headlined Halifax’s Denny Doherty of Mama’s and Papa’s fame, chronicling his relationship with Mama Cass.

Three Dollar French Fries with a Million Dollar View

Posted by on Sep 1, 2016 in Destinations, Nova Scotia, Travel Photo Thursday | 14 comments

From Queensland Beach I meandered down a windy secondary road that passes through a number of picturesque coves, eventually ending up at Bayswater Beach. Bayswater also boasts lovely white sand, and offers a longer walk and meander along the North Atlantic shore. Welcome to week 292 (9/1/2016) of Travel Photo Thursday. Sorry that we missed last week, but an unexpected overnight in Shanghai, and not being able to scale the Great Firewall of China put a damper on any plans to post.  I hope you enjoy Bayswater Beach and the french fries as much as I did.

Although the beach is right on the road there is a line of trees and a swath of grass that provides some privacy for those swimming and sunbathing.

Nova Scotia: Queensland Beach

Posted by on Aug 19, 2016 in Canada, Destinations, Nova Scotia, Travel Photo Thursday | 18 comments

Queensland Beach

Queensland Beach, steeped in early morning fog, was the first stop on my wander along Nova Scotia’s South Shore last week. Welcome to week 291 of Travel Photo Thursday. Queensland Beach is one of the closest saltwater beaches to Halifax, and my memories include Saturday afternoons of standing room only, and boom boxes providing the entertainment. The beach may not see the crowds of days gone by, but that hasn’t taken away the beauty. Enjoy my photos of a foggy morning at Queensland Beach.

Nova Scotia Beach

I love this photo! Nova Scotia beachgoers are die-hards. That yellow umbrella “knew” that the sun would make an appearance eventually, and I bet that the beach lover on the shore knew that the sun would be breaking through and it would be off with some of those clothes!
