Annapolis Royal Winter Sunsets

Welcome to week 358 (2/8/2018) of Travel Photo Thursday, and some famous Annapolis Royal Winter Sunsets. I have to say my first Nova Scotia winter in about 18 years is a shock to my system. Even though I experienced the cold winters in Korea, the snow fall was usually light. Spending two months in warmer climes every year also helped, too. I’ve been spoiled. However, never mind that. Although it seem like all its done in Annapolis Royal lately is snow. we have been treated to a few lovely Annapolis Royal winter sunsets. Enjoy the ones I have managed to capture.

Annapolis Basin

One of the best places to capture the sunset in Annapolis Royal is in our downtown, which fronts on the Annapolis Basin. Do you know that the Annapolis Basin is a sub-basin of the Bay of Fundy, which is famous for some of the highest tides in the world? While the winter sun may not be as brilliant as the summer sun, winter sunsets over the basin, with their orange hues, are special.

A Winter Wonderland: Annapolis Royal

Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, Winter 2018

Welcome to week 355 (1/11/218) of Travel Photo Thursday. Since December 27th Annapolis Royal has been a snow lovers paradise. Yesterday was the first day since the 27th that we haven’t had snow. We even saw the sun and there was a well deserved sunset to oooo and ah over. Today we hit a balmy 10C, and there’s lots of rain on the way. Some of it might even be freezing (ugh)! All these pressure systems have been playing havoc with my head, and I’ve pretty much had a headache everyday for the past week. Thankfully, I had a break from that today. Enough of my moaning. I want to show you how pretty Annapolis Royal is in the snow and cold (think -17c).

We had a real winter wonderland right outside my front door! I am so glad I don’t have to shovel.

Happy New Year everyone and welcome to week 354 (1/4/2018) of Travel Photo Thursday and our first link-up of the new year. For me, 2017 was one of endings and beginnings.  I think of it as one door closing and another door opening. I left Korea and returned to Nova Scotia where I am now based in the historical town of Annapolis Royal. My travels in 2017 saw me enjoying some interesting towns and cities in both Korea and Nova Scotia. This week I want to share with you seven of my favorite travel related/inspired photos of 2017.

Haeundae Beach

New Year’s 2017 found me on Korea’s Haeundae Beach taking in the first sunrise of the year.  It was a picture perfect start to 2017. The new year included both Geoje Island and Korea’s second largest city, Busan. That’s where you will find Haeundae Beach should you ever travel to Korea. This is without a doubt the most famous beach in Korea. Beware, it’s illegal to swim here after the end of August!

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.

Annapolis Royal

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.

Seventeen Pictou artists painted up a colorful storm during Paint Pictou early in September. It was the perfect day for taking Nova Scotia photos, too!
