Fog and mist on the Sunrise Trail.  Nova Scotia.  June 2012.

Fog and mist on the Sunrise Trail. Nova Scotia. June 2012.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Thursday Travels post.  I know.  It’s Friday, not Thursday.  But I’m off skiing this afternoon and won’t have time to post the photos from that little adventure so you’re stuck with a scheduled post and some travel photos from Nova Scotia today.  In my last Thursday Travels post (Ferries and boats and lighthouses, oh my), M and I had just landed in Nova Scotia.  We left Caribou, Nova Scotia, and went east on the Sunrise Trail, making our way towards Cape Breton.

Thursday Travels: Ferries and boats and lighthouses, oh my

Wood Island, Prince Edward Island

Wood Islands, Prince Edward Island

Last week when we left off, M and I were getting ready to leave Prince Edward Island.  After a quick visit to say goodbye to the beach, we made our way to  Wood Islands, PEI to take the ferry to Caribou, Nova Scotia.  (Side note:  This must seem like it was the longest trip in the world, especially when you consider that this is only the half way point.  We really did pack in a lot of activities each day.)

Thursday Travels: Leaving Prince Edward Island

I think this is the Covehead Lighthouse.  (Late afternoon, 6 June 2012.)

Well, here we are back on Prince Edward Island.  It’s just about time to say goodbye.  M and I had only one full day there, and we did as much as we could considering the weather.

So.  How was your weekend?  Mine went by so quickly that I’m still trying to catch my breath.

Wishing you…

Somewhere in Pennsylvania. October 2012.

By the time this scheduled post goes out, I will be somewhere in Pennsylvania, heading east towards New Jersey to spend Thanksgiving Day with family.  The house-sitter should be all settled in, ready to enjoy a few days by the pond and with the kitties.  She’s going to have some nice weather.  It should be nice back east too.

Thursday Travels: Leaving Greenwich

Walking back over the floating boardwalk

Because of the weather, it was a fast hike out to the beach and back.  If you are a birder, the floating boardwalk over Bowley Pond is a great place to look for birds.  I saw numerous birds, but couldn’t capture any photos of them as it was just too windy and wet.
