“The Dingle”, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada…
Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday. Hopefully, we are back to our regular weekly posting. I do apologize for last weeks miss. When you don’t have Internet access at home posting can be a challenge. I am now back in Daejeon after three fabulous weeks at home. I’m not here for long though. I have a 5:30am bus reservation for tomorrow, and will be flying out to Chaing Mai for a month at 10:20am.
To join in the Travel Photo Thursday fun simply post a photo on your blog. Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post. Please remember to leave a comment after you link. Finally, if you have a few moments, visit the others who have linked.

You don’t have to go very far in Nova Scotia to be at the ocean. This shot was taken at Sir Sanford Fleming Park, or as it is known by the locals “The Dingle”. You’ll find a beach here, which I swam at when I was a kid. Apparently, it has reopened since a new sewage disposal plant is now in operation. There are also number of walking trails to enjoy. Access to the park is free, and there is plenty of parking. I took this shot from the waters edge looking out at the North West Arm. I’m assuming that these folks were probably rowing out to a larger boat, or maybe they were just enjoying the fabulous weather from their dinghy.
There is also a memorial tower, but it’s being renovated at the moment. Once it reopens, fabulous views can be enjoyed from the top. Of course, that’s after you climb the stairs.
The Dingle is a great place to spend a day enjoying the Atlantic Ocean in the city. You can pack your own picnic lunch, or in the summer there is a canteen open during daytime hours. Did I mention that entrance to the park is FREE? What more can a budget traveler ask for?
