This week we were in Annapolis Royal having a peek at my new condo and taking a few photos along the waterfront. Welcome to week 347 (12/10/2017) of Travel Photo Thursday. I have been a total road warrior this week and it’s not over yet. Tuesday I was in Halifax having lunch with a friend who is downsizing and offered me some of her kitchen gadgets. Then yesterday it was seven hours on the road as I did a return trip to Annapolis Royal. Tomorrow it’s back to Halifax to see Dad and celebrate my niece’s birthday. I’ll also spend some time with the beautiful Livy. She’s already a month old! This is a quick post, but do enjoy the photos of Annapolis Royal, my soon to be home.

This outside amphitheatre is a new addition to the Annapolis Royal waterfront. It couldn’t have been built in a prettier spot with perfect views of the Annapolis River. Of course, it was also a picture-perfect day.
From there I strolled down the boardwalk and spotted these bright red chairs in the distance. I was curious to learn more about them and to sit for a few minutes to, again, enjoy the incredible views.
It turns out these red chairs can be found at National Historic Sites across Canada. These ones happen to be in front of Fort Saint-Anne the oldest of Canada’s Historical sites. You can read a bit about the history of Annapolis Royal and the area. The red chairs offer visitors the opportunity to take a moment to relax and enjoy their surroundings. I think these red chairs are a fab idea!
I even took a “red chair” selfie 🙂
Annapolis Royal Lighthouse
The Annapolis Royal Lighthouse was built in 1889 and for many years it guided ships into the harbour. The lighthouse was recently given a significant face-lift with money the town won in a “Save the Lighthouse Contest”. You can read more about that here.
Across from Annapolis Royal is the historic village of Granville Ferry. There was a time when a ferry did run between the two villages. The fall colours are beginning to show themselves. They should peak in a week or maybe two.
