Monday's Photographic Memories

This past weekend we had DH's parents here for a visit :o) Thank goodness we had lovely weather and that enabled us to get out and show them what NS has to offer. Yesterday we drove to the Kejimkujik Seaside Adjunct which is part of Kejimkujik National Park but located on the Atlantic Ocean. DH and I had been there before with my parents but it was during the spring and the tide was in. This time the tide was all the way out and we got some spectacular views!

Quite a few years ago, a fisherman fell asleep and ended up crashing into Little Hope Island. This is where his boat remains today -

A better picture (not by me) was taken back when there was a lighthouse on the island -

In 2003, Little Hope Lighthouse was taken down by hurricanes. This is what it looked like back in the day -

DH told me that the island was big enough that a farmer used to take his cattle over to graze in the summer. Just goes to show you how much water levels have risen and how much the island has eroded over the years :o(

Those lazy seals are making me yearn for an afternoon nap. They really know how to enjoy the fresh air!

Hurricanes in NS? Wow, never thought about that. Wouldn't have been a great job to be the watchman on that island?

I love the picture of the rocks. The rounded one in front and the ocean in the background. Perfect.

What lovely photos, Cathey! I love the ones of the seals sunning themselves--they look so contented and blubbery on those rocks. It's a shame that the lighthouse is not longer there--what a sight that must have been :)
