Boats of Nova Scotia


There was so much peace driving the coastlines of Nova Scotia up and around Cape Breton Island. This simple scene is one of my favorite shots of the trip, and stays with me even far away back home in California. Here is a wider angle view, plus some shots up and down the inlet. One of the boat owners showed us the starfish on the pier posts, proof it was saltwater from the ocean even though it was so protected and calm.









For more scenic delights head over to Photo Friday! Enjoy your August!

Gorgeous! The images nicely depict the tranquility of the place, and the clean air. I like the last shot as well. Something I'd never thing of doing.

I love Nova Scotia. We spent time there during one of my school vacations with my family. We even took a ride on a little tug boat!

Wow! This is absolutely gorgeous. Make me want to be able to transport myself there whenever I need some quiet time. Also love the starfish picture. Amazing. I have never seen one live before.
