A moment of togetherness this morning at Boatstrand Harbour as a fixated seagull and I watched The Maid Maggie on the silvery sea.

  1. So peaceful Jean. Love it. You’re making me pine for the ocean. 🙂 The little fishing boat is so typical of what we see in Eastern Canada. There is a Discovery Channel show here that is called “Deadliest Catch”( ) that chronicles the adventures of these boats fishing on the ocean.

    I used to see them in coastal areas outside Halifax (a large commercial port). There is a beautiful little fishing community about 45 km from Halifax called Peggy’s Cove (,_Nova_Scotia ) that we used to visit occasionally. It is a world renowned tourist area as well as a working fishing village. Part of the beauty is the fact that the whole area is sitting on exposed granite rock.

    Great post. Thanks forte memories.

That explains the similarities of geography and geology.And then it was the Irish who were major settlers of those lands centuries ago. Irish Pubs (the height of civilization – Ha!) are big around there. Ha! 😀
