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!

We’ve had some gorgeous sunsets on the harbour during the past month or so.


This is the old Pictou Post Office and since taking this shot I have learned that it is the only building in the world to have a window in its chimney!

If you’re a fan of farmer’s markets, a visit to the New Glasgow Farmer’s Market is well worth it. Loads of fresh produce and talented artisans.


We love our pumpkins and scarecrows in Nova Scotia.


Fall is here in NS, except for incredible summer like temps. #novascotia #pictou #canada #autumn

    • Hi, Carol. We’ve had a fabulous summer and fall here in Nova Scotia. It’s been perfect for getting out with the camera. Thanks for linking up.

  2. Such a great collection of photos from your hometown. So glad you are home to enjoy this beautiful area and your family. Livy is adorable!

  4. Gorgeous photos! I’d love to see Nova Scotia someday!

    • Hi, Rachel. Come over and visit sometime!

  5. Beautiful photos Nancie. Nova Scotia is such a pretty place. I imagine you’re happy to be back there.

    • Hi, Kathy. It is nice to be home and right now I’m in a part of the province that I wasn’t very familiar with.

  6. Great photos of the Pictou waterfront. I remember how funny Brussel sprouts looked in the field (I used to live near a farm that had acres of them).

    • Hi, Rhonda. I had no idea the Brussel sprouts grew on stalks. Learn something new every day!

  7. Wonderful photos! There are so many pops of color here and there. So lovely you met your great niece. I am sure that was a special moment.

    • Hi, Ruth. Thanks! Yes, meeting Livy was very special. She is a sweetheart.

  8. I have yet to visit Nova Scotia, but your photos in this post and in previous ones make me want to go there some day. I hope the reverse culture shock isn’t too bad, and these photos of Pictou look like you had a picturesque spot to get reacquainted with North America. Welcoming Livy into the world must bring you so much joy. My first great niece was also born last month.

    • Hi Michele. Come and visit; you won’t be disappointed. Strangely enough, I’ve not really experienced any reverse culture shock. I’m sure it will hit one of these days, though. Great nieces are special, enjoy!

  9. Loving all the photos.. Looks like you are really having a wonderful time back at your hometown.. Hope I can visit Nova Scotia soon.. By the way, your niece Livy, is such a cutie..

    • Hi Maria. Thank you! Do come and visit sometime. We’re friendly here 🙂

  10. Nova Scotia’s beauty is truly stunning and your photos make me want to plan a trip to see it for myself! (On my someday list.) I especially loved your pic of the old Pictou Post Office with the weathered bricks and I would never have thought about a window in the chimney if you hadn’t mentioned it. You’ve picked a glorious setting for your next home!

  11. Those brussel sprouts are bizarre! Love your Livy. 🙂
