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.

Nova Scotia Photos

This week let’s enjoy a few favorite Nova Scotia photos from my Instagram feed, taken since my return on August 22nd. Welcome to week 346 (10/05/2017) of Travel Photo Thursday. Internet connections continue to be a challenge for me. I’m in the library attempting to put this post together since the Internet in my apartment decided to go on vacation around 8 am this morning. Do enjoy the photos and don’t forget to check out the other great travel bloggers linking up this week.

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!

Nova Scotia: New Glasgow Farmer’s Market

Posted by on Sep 29, 2017 in Destinations, Nova Scotia, Travel Photo Thursday | 8 comments

New Glasgow Farmer’s Market

This past weekend we had a fab time at the weekly New Glasgow Farmer’s Market. Welcome to week 345 of Travel Photo Thursday. My apologies for last weeks absence, but Indy and I continue to live the vagabond lifestyle. Last week we were in a lovely New Glasgow apartment with no Internet and my trusty old laptop refused to connect to the public library Wifi. We are back in Pictou this week with both a Wifi connection and a brand new computer.

Wherever I am in the world markets are always at the top of my list. Come along as we enjoy this Nova Scotia gem; the New Glasgow Farmer’s Market.

If you’re driving you are in luck. The parking lot is located steps away from the market buildings. It’s free, and there’s no shortage of spaces. The building on the right is the permanent building and the white domed building is a tent and is closed once the weather becomes too nippy. None of the vendors I spoke to had an exact date, but it probably depends on the temperatures. We’re having an exceptionally mild fall (think swimming in the ocean end of September), so if this keeps up both buildings could be open for a while yet. The market is open every Saturday from 9 am – 1 pm. If I was coming here in the winter months I would double check on their website just to be sure. You’ll also find a list of vendors.

Ship Hector

This week we’re visiting  Ship Hector in the picturesque town of Pictou, Nova Scotia. Welcome to week 343 (7/9/2017) of Travel Photo Thursday. I’m enjoying my new temporary home in Pictou and it seems that Indy and I will be moving one more time before we finally get to settle into our new condo, and Annapolis Royal. Next Friday we’ll be taking up temporary residence in New Glasgow, a town located about 20 minutes from here. We now have a tentative date of September 30th to move into our new home in Annapolis Royal. Fingers crossed! Join us this week to see and read all about Ship Hector and why the wee town of Pictou is often referred to as “The Birth Place of New Scotland”. Did you know that Nova Scotia is Latin for New Scotland?

Seoul Sky Observatory: Lotte Tower, Seoul

Seoul Sky

This week we’re visiting the Seoul Sky Observatory located in Seoul’s Lotte Tower. Welcome to week 342 of (8/31/2017) of Travel Photo Thursday. I’ve been back in Canada 23 days and Nova Scotia for nine; so far so good. My visit to the Seoul Sky Observatory was my last sight-seeing adventure in Korea, and I loved every moment. Now I also have a good reason to visit Seoul again sometime. I want to experience the awesome night view. Enjoy the photo tour.

There were lineups, but I was amazed at how quickly things moved. I was there at the height of the season and wait time for getting a ticket and the Sky Shuttle (elevator) to the 117 floor was a mere 15 minutes. Whoever is in charge is an expert in crowd control.

You enter Seoul Sky through the Lotte World Mall, which is easily accessible via Jamsil Subway Station (Line 2 or 8 Exit 2). Follow the signs and you won’t get lost.

A Canadian Sunrise Welcome

Canadian Sunrise

This past Tuesday we headed across to Nova Scotia and were welcomed with a stunning Canadian sunrise. Welcome to week 341 (8/24/2017) of Travel Photo Thursday. Since arriving I have been spending time with my Dad and running around trying to buy a car and running into snags with the insurance. I know this will all get sorted out and hopefully sooner rather than later. This week’s Travel Photo Thursday is short and sweet. I hope things will be back to normal next week.

I’m not sure of our exact location over Canada when the sun began to peek over the horizon. However, it was lovely to be welcomed by this beautiful scene as we winged our way towards Montreal and then onto Halifax. (A cleaner window would have been nice!)

Canadian Sunrise

 

Our time in Montreal was too brief to even exit the airplane. The cleaning crew did a quick clean-up, passengers boarded and we were in the air again in no time. From all indications, it seemed that our welcoming sunrise had also ushered in nice weather for the Montreal area. However, by evening there was a dramatic turn of events. Winds whipped to hurricane levels, and in one area close to Montreal a tornado touched down. Ottawa was also in the path of this freak weather system. I was relieved that we had gotten in and out long before this weather system reared its ugly head. Although, winds were high and unrelenting in Halifax the next day.

I hope everyone is having a great August, and hopefully, things will get back to normal very soon with Travel Photo Thursday.

What freaky weather have you experienced or were lucky enough to miss in your travels? Let us know in the comments.
