Monday's Photographic Memories

This past Friday, DH and I took a drive down to Lunenburg to do an errand. Believe it or not but the camera jumped in the car this time ;o)

Remember my post about Stephen King's new show called Haven? Well if you don't, you might want to go back there and read it so you'll know what I'm talking about. For those of you who do, I thought that while I was there, I would take some pictures of the town to show you where some of the scenes where taken :o)

This is the overall view of the town -


Of course the scenes they have on the show are much more beautiful than what my camera can capture!

If you move your gaze to the left of the picture above, you'll see the Marine Museum (red building) -


W-a-y up on the hill in behind you catch a glimpse of the school -


I'm not sure if this is in the show or not because I've only seen 3 episodes so far. Just in case it is, you'll know that it's really a school :o)

In the first episode, there are quite a few scenes that take place in an antique store. This is that storefront -


It really used to be an antique store but now it's a photography studio.

When they show pictures of the town, sometimes you'll catch a glimpse of some brightly coloured buildings :o) This is the street that they are on -


One is a kitchen store and it's one of DH's favourite places to go. Another is an Italian restaurant that we have yet to try but we do plan on it at some point.

They used Town Hall for police headquarters -


I have caught glimpses of these signs in the show -


They have them all through the town. Each shows a different fish or crustaceans that can be found in our waters :o)

Finally, the church -



I saw just a glimpse of it in the opening credits but it was just too beautiful not to take pictures of it.

During each show I keep my eyes peeled to see if I recognise any of the locations :o) If I find some more, I'll do another post for you. I hope you have enjoyed 'my' tour of Haven! LOL!

Great photos! Haven looks to be a wonderful town. I love how some of the buildings are brightly painted. And that church is awesome!

Oh thanks a lot for sharing, Cathey! Since I've seen the first episodes, I just would love to live there, I love when they put a view from the sea, like you did with the first pic, particularly with the Marine Museum and I love the Town Hall building!! Yay, you made my day! :))

I would love to have a view from the sea as a screen wallpaper, I'll have to make a screenshot the next time I watch it on the internet... :P

Many hugs,
Gen =^_^=

Completly different constructions from what I'm used to see!
Oh I wish I could see that tv show here :p

Lunenburg looks like such an incredibly colorful town! Somehow I pictured a Stephen King setting as dark and gloomy :)

Love your photo of the fish sign--that would be fun to go around and try to find as many fish markers as you could. How many people live there?

Thanks for sharing your photos, Cathey--they're all so lovely...
