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.

Penang Photos

This week I am sharing with Penang photos from my 2014 visit. Welcome to week 272 (4/7/2015) of Travel Photo Thursday. I’m buried in essays and quizzes and trying to stay healthy. Cold and flu are making the rounds in my classes, and the faculty lounge. Whether or not I manage to dodge one, or both remains to be seen. I have to say that travel is the furthest thing from my mind now. I can’t remember the last time I said or thought those words! Enjoy this selection of Penang photos.

I was in Penang during ghost month, so there was a lot happening at both the private and public temples, plus the Georgetown Festival.

There was incense everywhere!

Stunning Water Photos from Around the World

Posted by on Oct 29, 2015 in Canada, Czech - Prague, Destinations, Malaysia, Nova Scotia, Thailand, Travel Photo Thursday | 49 comments

Welcome to week 252 of Travel Photo Thursday (10/29/2015), and my apologies for being so late this week. My students submitted their 5 paragraph essays this week, and I now have the never ending task (or so it seems) to mark each and everyone! I love water, and I know I’m not alone. I don’t hesitate to get up before the crack of dawn with the hope of capturing that perfect sunrise over the water photo. If it’s a sunset over the water, I’ll stay until the sun is only a memory. This week I’m sharing with you some of my favorite water photos from around the globe.

Here’s last week’s link-up, just in case you missed it! 

Add your link and comment below. Guaranteed, magic will happen 🙂 

I’ve taken some beautiful water shots in my own home province of Nova Scotia.

Stunning Peggy’s Cove; obviously taken looking way from the lighthouse towards the village.

Beach Fantasies For This Travel Photo Thursday

Posted by on Apr 9, 2015 in Destinations, Malaysia, Thailand, Travel Photo Thursday | 16 comments

Welcome to week 222 (09/04/2015) of Travel Photo Thursday. Last week I had readers lusting over Korea’s beautiful spring flowers. Well the flowers are still around, but we are now into that fickle time of the year where the temps go up and down. Right now they are down, way down. Of course there is a remedy for that …let’s go to the beach. Here are some of my favorite Asian beaches, and all with lovely toe warming sand and bathing suit temps!

And…don’t forget to add your own link to the Travel Photo Thursday line-up…

Langkawi’s Cenang Beach…

Believe it or not I ended up getting a flight from either Bangkok or KL on Air Asia for a penny! I’m not sure if Air Asia still offers their penny specials, but back in 2009 and 2010 I managed to snag a couple. If Cenang Beach was a person, I would say it has multiple personality disorder. Go to the left and you are on the side with all the normal, everyday holiday folks. The right side of the beach definitely has a well worn feeling. At least I thought so back in 2009. Take a wander to the right and it’s ritzville all the way. There were lots of expensive hotels, and comfy beach chairs stretching for a half mile or so, and not a person in sight. The shot below was on what I dubbed the ritzy side. I love this strange looking tree right smack dab in the middle of the pristine white sand. I was also extremely tempted to hijack one of the comfy beach chairs, but I was too chicken! One of the prettiest Asian beaches I’ve had the pleasure to visit.

Strolling along Campbell Street, taking in the sights, I was intrigued when I came across the Poh Aun Tong Medical Hall, and decided to wander in and have a quick peek.
