Touring the Aspotogan Peninsula

Friday was very, very cold around here but a spectacular sunny day. Which meant a great day for touring for us. We headed to the Aspotogan Peninsula...one of the few roads along the South Shore that we hadn't been on before. Off Highway 3, Road 329 runs between East River and Hubbards. We turned off Hwy 3 at East River and headed along the shore.

This is Deep Cove Road, not a spectacular scenery shot, but I really liked the lines of the trees, road and snow leading your eye to the ocean: I love old things. Old houses, old windows, old stuff. So much character. When I spotted this wagon, I knew we had to stop for some photos.
Someone had been trying to sell it. There was a "for sale" sign crumpled up in the wagon. Would have liked one of those wheels to take with me! But maybe not this wheel:Further down the road is Northwest Cove. Very picturesque and colourful!A closer view for you:Not to be outdone, here is what greeted us when we arrived home:And a nice fire to warm us up after taking photos in the cold!

This is an area I have over looked as well and seeing your images I best correct this oversight .

Gosh, it's like someone on that wagon decided to sell it after it broke down by the side of the road. How cool is that it was just sitting there for you to take it's picture.
The coves and harbors there are filled with such bright colors. A welcome sight on a cold winter day.

There are lots of great places to explore in Nova Scotia! Cyrus Eaton, the great industrialist used to have an estate in Deep Cove.
