Blue Rocks

Last week we found ourselves in Lunenburg, a popular tourist spot. We saw the sign for Blue Rocks...a road we've never been on...and decided to check it out. It was a foggy day, and the landscape reminded me of our trip to Newfoundland last year.We spotted some herons and stopped to take some photos. They are such majestic birds. We went all the way out to the point of Blue Rocks, which looked like it must be a true fishing community. It was a lovely bay with some quaint homes and cottages. I'm sure it's a wonderful place to be in the summer, but winter must be very isolated. I should have taken some photos there, but I didn't. On the way back towards Lunenburg, we spotted a woman painting at the side of the road.I asked if I could take her photo and we chatted for a few minutes. It turns out she lives on the other side of the province, but tours the area so she can paint on site. Her name is Joy Laking, and she'll be exhibiting in Lunenburg at the end of July. She said she has painted the view of this old building every year for the past 30 years.

And, one last photo. This is a little tourist shop which was closed the day we were there. It looks like they might have some interesting things. The outside is certainly full of character!
