Quirky Annapolis Royal

Quirky Annapolis Royal is often a term of endearment I use for the town I now call home. Welcome to week 359 (2/22/18) of Travel Photo Thursday. This week I give you one photo, which I think shows you my newly adopted town’s quirky (and fun) side.

To join in the Travel Photo Thursday fun simply choose a travel post from your blog.

Add a link to Budget Travelers Sandbox in your post. If you’d like to add the Travel Photo Thursday logo to your site, you’ll find the code in the sidebar. 

Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post.

Each link is shared on Twitter and the Pinterest Travel Photo Thursday board. (FYI: everyone who linked up to week 358 got a Tweet and a Pin) 🙂 

Leave a comment before you go.

I do read each one and always try to respond.

Finally, take the time to visit some of the other bloggers in the link-up. Reading, posting, and sharing is what makes the link-up successful, and ultimately brings more traffic to your blog.


If you decide to visit Quirky Annapolis Royal (you won’t be disappointed!), you’ll find this Nova Scotia themed sculpture just behind the Royal Bank on St. George Street and in front of a gift shop/cafe (opened during the season)  called The Crooked Floor.

As you can see from this photo, we have no snow! I’m hearing this is the best February we’ve had in years. Mother Nature is smiling on Quirky Annapolis Royal at the moment, and we love her!

On a side note, “Mr. Sea Gull” is steps away from the town’s beautifully restored historic lighthouse.
