Prospect Bay, Nova Scotia

On Saturday, we explored Route 333 in Nova Scotia, turning off on the Prospect Bay Road, travelling all the way out to Indian Point Road.  We ended up in a quaint collection of homes set on the roughly-bouldered coastline of southern Nova Scotia.

We parked the car and walked carefully
through the swampy bits
and over huge boulders
to reach the water's edge.

It was approaching sunset and the wind was up
so we were cautious and stayed well back
from the water's edge, knowing that this particular coast
can be deadly as well as beautiful.

It is wise to treat the Atlantic Coast with respect,
as many have been sucked off the rocks
by a rogue wave, and not all have returned.

For us, on Saturday, it was a windy walk to
a wildly breath-taking coastline, and the
peach-pink glow of sunset for company
on our path home.

All photos are mine.  If you click on the words in red,
you will go to another website with additional information.

Nova Scotia in many ways looks like the 'old Scotland'! Lovely photos

Yes, it does and that is why we have so many ancestors from there! The coastline is so wild and picturesque that it is impossible to make bad photos...but, thank you for the compliment.

Beautiful post Carol.. warm, rugged, quaint, and raw... you really are an explorer aren't you.. and you document it so well

Thanks for this comment, Gwen. The coastline of NS is gorgeous, especially on the windy south shore.

Carol, just wanted to let you know that the first pic on this page is not Shad Bay but Prospect Bay. The road in the pic is called "The Lane". I can see the house I used to visit when my grandparents were still alive.

Thanks. Of course, you are correct. My mistake. I appreciate your correction and the comment.
