Weekend Daytripping

Our weekend was jammed pack with daytripping around the province...something we love to do. Hurrican Igor was nowhere near Nova Scotia, but it was close enough to cause surf to be up along the coast...something the surfers were rejoicing. There was a surfing competition in Laurencetown, but we headed to a lesser known surfer's delight...Western Head.Loved the sound of the waves crashing, and the rocks jostling as the water pulled back out. The beach is not a good walking beach...and I sure wouldn't want to be surfing....but it was lovely to sit on the rocks in the sunshine and listen and watch.And of course, I always get distracted by the real estate!
And this one...
A little further down the road is the lighthouse. This seagull (can you see him?) seems oblivious to the spray crashing around him:Next day: we headed to the other side of Nova Scotia for "Open Farm Day". (photos coming soon)
