Fundy leftovers ...

The wonderful thing about exploring on my own is that I can stop when I want, and linger as long as I like, looking at whatever shiny thing caught my eye in the first place,

like this church.


As you know, I love peering in windows.


One of these days, someone is going to be peering out, and it'll scare the crap outta me.

But I bet that won't stop me.


I wonder if in winter,  they still heat the church with that wood stove.


While Wendy and Trey were running in the sloppy mud, I admire the lovely view.  
I think the tide was on its way out.


Hard to imagine that the tide will rise up to float this boat in just a matter of hours.


Lovely, gloopy mud.



I love checking out old cemeteries.




It's sad how overgrown this cemetery is.
If I lived near one like this, I'd adopt it, and care for it.


How did they bear the sadness of losing so many beloved children ?

Perhaps the message on the stone below holds the answer ?



This abandoned farm is next to the cemetery.


I loved this bit of fence with pink roses and the strong old tree trunk in the background.


Still have more images left, but you're going to have to wait another day or so for them.

  2. Even though it's overgrown, the cemetery is still very charming. They don't make headstones like that any more.

    1. It's interesting that some of the older stones i.e. 200 years old are in much better shape than ones that are "only" 100 years old. I read it had to do with the type of stone used. I love meandering through cemeteries. The dogs don't like it coz they have to wait in the car and watch me sauntering about without them. They just don't "get" that !

  3. Syb, I like the pier view the best. It is awesome! Thank you for sharing your alone walks. I've been alone for five days as the hub has been at Isle Royale for his annual fishing trip. He's coming home soon, assuming he survived the storm that hit Thursday night. I'm voting that he's OK.

    1. The pier one was funny. The dogs thought I was leaving and felt more play time was needed. They just stood their on the dock as if to say, "Hey, we're not done yet. Let's not go for a while".

      Boy that hot weather has been generating some awful storms. There was talk on the CBC this morning about a possible tornado sighting yesterday in New Brunswick (the province beside us). This is NOT tornado country.

      I think mother nature is angry about the bats and the bees ...

      She may be trying to kick us out. Who would blame her ?

    2. just back, re-reading... Isn't it interesting, how we might post one comment one day and a total different comment a week later? Today I would say I love wandering on my own. The best.

    3. Pardon the typo above ... "there" vs "their. Sigh ... I hate it when others get that wrong, and now I'm doing it.

      Sometimes wandering alone is nice. Sometimes wandering and chatting with a friend is nice too.

  4. Neat pictures! I'm fascinated by old cemeteries too, reading the names, imagining their lives, and their sadness. There are always so many children :-(

    1. Thanks Lisa. Next time you're in Halifax, make sure you check out the Old Burying Ground. It closed to new burials in 1844 which gives you an idea of how old it is.

  5. I've had that happen: peered in the window of what I thought was abandoned to have a face peering back out at me! Holy crap is that spooky.

    That muddy ditch thing looks like a real sloopy mess. But it looks invitingly cool there. Either that, or way too muggy.

    1. Yipes. That musta been embarrassing.

      That muddy ditch is a tidal river. The water will come in and float that little boat. It's too gloopy to walk in. But it would be cool ... I think ...

  7. I love poking around old cemeteries too, or for that matter anywhere the living won't pester me.

    1. You'd love Nova Scotia. You can go to a beach and be the only person there -- 'cept in mid-summer.
