Heading South with the Birds

September 30th, 2015 – New Brunswick Canada – And so I’ve done “Eastest” in North America.  As the weather turns cooler I think I’ll take a cue from the migratory fowl and head south.  Not too fast as I don’t like being “swept up” in hurricane season.  So far I’ve been back across Newfoundland, back……

September 18th and 29th, 2015 – Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada – Scenery for every occasion on this long day’s drive (I recommend longer).  Low bank……

September 20th-28th, 2015 – Newfoundland Canada – Finally, some skies clear of both light and smoke.  Enough so I’ve been able to play with the camera on some cold crisp nights.  So that I have a few pictures to share of what I see looking up into the darkness.

Cape Spear – Newfoundland

September 24th, 2015 – Cape Spear, Newfoundland – I was the first person in North America to see the sun come up……


Newfoundland Ferry

September 20th & 28th, 2015 – Nova Scotia to Newfoundland Ferry – I finally had convinced myself that I should take the ferry to Newfoundland.  Good thing as Newfoundland was a highlight to me akin to northern Alaska.  And, the word ferry describes the purpose, but probably doesn’t conjure up the picture of these huge……


Green Gables National Heritage Place

September 16th, 2015 – Prince Edward Island – The Green Gables National Heritage Place – as the fictional character Anne would say of the place, so……


Prince Edward Island (PEI)
