40 years apple trees once stood here, now only stumps mark where trees once produced a bounty of apples. The Nova Scotia apple industry is changing from traditions apples like Macintosh, to newer more popular apples, driven by a USA market.

A blood red sandy beach with unlimited possibilities for exploring with not a soul around, how Canadian, miles of space! I love it. We Canadians love it and it shapes us and our minds. If you look closely there’s two people walking on the beach.

Reporting From The Canadian Landscape

I didn’t have the heart to wake Mya and move her off my camera, so instead I photographed her, hoping the bright flash going off in her eyes would wake her and then I’d move my camera. Notice the dirt on her nose.. well both my dogs are mouser’s and will spend many hours digging up fields or forest in pursuit of mice. Its now tick season and each day I’ll pull off six ticks off each dog.

    Just a note, the Cornwallis Inn is in Kentville, not Wolfville. Wolfville boasts the famous Blomidon Inn, and many others. Lovely pictures though.

    Hi there,

    Cynthia here and I work with Nova Scotia Tourism. Your photos are fantastic. The remind me of Charlotte’s Web. I keep waiting to see “Some Pig” in one of the frames. You’ve really captured the Bay of Fundy as well. Lois looks like she would have some great stories to tell. Thanks for sharing!

    How many times as a child I ventured into Lois’ store to buy my mom a gift …. Christmas, Valentines, Birthday … they all came from that little store in Canning … I loved going in there and just walking around. She always made me feel welcome and of course it helped that she also sold penny candy 😉 Thanks for the flash back 😀
