Nova Scotia Landscape Holiday Photos

My husband and I went on holiday to Nova Scotia at the end of May. I couldn’t figure out where we should go for vacation. Last year we went to British Columbia, so I thought we might try the Canada’s Atlantic coast. The landscape is drastically different than on the Pacific side, but it is still beautiful in it’s own way. This set of landscape photos were all taken in the same area in central Nova Scotia, on the Bay of Fundy.  The lighthouse is on Cape D’or near Advocate Harbour, which required a long drive up a dusty, narrow gravel road.  This was one of the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen. The sheer cliffs were astounding, and the contrast of the green grass against the dark rocky cliffs set upon the shining bay was absolutely breathtaking. The last landscape photo is the view from right near the lighthouse itself. You can see how small the full-grown pine trees appear at this angle.

The second to last photo was taken while we were actually kayaking on the Bay of Fundy. This was a holiday after all, and we wanted to have some adventure, so we took a day and went out onto the bay. The landscape looked completely different from the water level. It was rather chilly, and very windy, which made paddling difficult and cold.  We paddled for an hour and then stopped for lunch. After that, we started back towards our starting point. This return journey proved to be much more cumbersome that the trip in. The wind was howling, the waves were crashing, and the landscape became a lot more dynamic. It seems that our holiday wouldn’t be complete without being soaking wet and freezing cold!
