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.




Fort Anne National Historic Site

This sunset over the Annapolis Basin was taken from Fort Anne. This area has been fortified since 1629 and is one of Canada first designated National Historic Sites. Fort Anne closes for the season at the end of September, but like the Historic Gardens, you can still walk the grounds. I had to do a sprint down St. George St. to get this shot before the sun faded into the black of the night 🙂

This is Sieur de Mon’s Monument, who was a Governor of Nova Scotia between 1603 and 1607 when it was known as Acadie.

LaHave River Ferry

These two shots were taken from the LaHave Ferry when I was crossing from the town of LaHave to East LaHave.  This is a cable ferry and if you have never been on one don’t miss the experience if you’re in the area. There has been a ferry on this route since the 1800s. Check here for more information.

  2. Give me a sunset, anywhere, and my heart sings. Beautiful shots, Nancie (especially on this stormy, cloudy day in Greece!)

    • Hey, Jackie. No sunset here tonight either. It’s wet and windy.

  3. sunrises – sunsets – over water or other the desert – I love them all. Beautiful. Have a fabulous weekend ahead and thank you again for the link up.

    • Hi, Jill. Thanks for linking up this week. I’m with you; every sunrise and sunset is amazing.

    • Hi, Ruth. Thanks. You’ll see a lot of Canada photos for the foreseeable future. I do hope to travel later in the winter. Time will tell 🙂

  5. I like the first photo of the Pictou Harbour sunset (panoramic). The colours reflected in the glassy water with the lone sailboat at anchor make me smile

    • Hi, Rhonda. That is a pretty shot. Thanks for linking up this week. #TPThursday

  6. Beautiful sunsets! I can never resist a good sunset, especially when I’m out on the water. It is the perfect end to the day.

    • Thanks, Anita. You see some beautiful sunsets where you are in Portugal.

  8. Sunsets get me every time – and it looks like Nova Scotia has some beautiful ones from your photos. My favorite is the sailboat photo with the muted colors on the water!

    • Hi, Jill. You are right. When the sun shines (not today) we do get some amazing sunsets.

  9. As much as I love boats and ocean, my favourite is the Governor’s statue (the first one).
