Pictou Harbour Sunset

During my temporary stay in Pictou I was treated to some lovely sunsets on the harbour front. I liked the fact that the sailboat was always there. I think it added a nice balance to both photos.

Historic Gardens, Annapolis Royal

 

The Historic Gardens in Annapolis Royal are a popular tourist destination. Although now closed for the season, the gates to the Historic Gardens remain open and you can wander around at your own risk. Even in the late autumn with few blooms, I found the gardens enchanting. Welcome to week 349 (11/28/2017) of Travel Photo Thursday. Apologies for not publishing last Thursday. Indy and I moved into our condo on Wednesday, so it was (and continues to be) a busy and fun time of getting settled into our new home.

Upon entering you see these three welcoming benches and fire pit. The garden hosts a winter market on Saturdays, so I am assuming that the fire pit is lit during the market to help shoppers stay a little warmer when the air is nippy.
