Thursday Travels: Mary’s Point

On the beach at Cape Enrage. New Brunswick, Canada.

Last week we looked at The Rocks of Cape Enrage.  I could show you more, but that would be going overboard.  Besides, it’s time to move on.  We can’t spend all of our time at Cape Enrage, no matter how beautiful it is there.  (For those new to Life in the Bogs, my husband and I took a trip to the Canadian Maritimes back in June, and I’m still sorting through all of the photographs I took.)

Thursday Travels: The Rocks of Cape Enrage

Over time

As promised, I’ve brought you some rocks from Cape Enrage.  Since I’m on a mission to simplify my life, I did not bring home a ton of rocks from our vacation in a form other than photographic.  I already have little altars of rocks (shells, feathers, etc.) built pretty much everywhere around the house.  I’ve been limiting my penchant for collecting to photography.

Thursday Travels: Back to Cape Enrage

On the way to Cape Enrage

Do you remember these stairs?  Go ahead and look if you need to refresh your memory.  We’ll wait.

Thursday Travels: A picnic lunch

A picnic table near Point Wolfe. Fundy National Park. New Brunswick, Canada.

When we last left off, our intrepid hikers were at the Point Wolfe Beach in Fundy National Park.  (In case you missed all the excitement — heh — previous posts from my trip to the Canadian Maritimes will be linked to at the bottom of this post.)  Hiking is hungry business so M and I decided to have a picnic lunch before starting our next hike.

Thursday Travels: Let’s go to the beach

Point Wolfe. Fundy National Park, New Brunswick, Canada.

If you were here last week, you may recall that I took you as far as the bottom of the stairs on the hike M and I took to Point Wolfe in Fundy National Park.  (If you don’t recall it, or you missed it, you’ll find the link at the bottom of this post).  This is the beach at the Point Wolfe River Estuary.

Dreaming

Dreaming the Boreal Forest

I’ve been dreaming of walks in the woods lately, journeying with bears and snakes and wolves.  The dreams are not frightening at all although I sometimes wake up feeling as if I went on a very long hike.  The dreams are why I picked the above photo for the Weekly Photo Challenge:  Dreaming.  It was taken in New Brunswick, Canada, in the Fundy National Park somewhere on the Laverty Falls Trail.

The challenge calls for using a long exposure technique, but I really can’t do that with my point & shoot camera (not well, at any rate) so I elected to interpret the dreamy state with some processing in Photoshop.
