Midweek Blues

The Blue Fairy Cottage
Nova Scotia


We visited this crazy little concrete house last summer in Hall's Harbor, Nova Scotia and fell in love with it.  This year, we've staying there for two weeks. There is a little balcony in the back of the house facing west, so we'll see some good sunsets over the ocean. With Winter just ended and spring slow to begin in New England, summer still feels a long way away.

I recently discovered Midweek Blues when I visited Coloring With Light, a wonderful photo blog from Ontario. We're Canadian all over here!  :-) Which is a good thing. I like the system in Canada far more than I like our own American one. I love Montreal - one of my favorite cities. And the Fundy Shore. When I first stepped out of the car and encountered the view, I felt immediately as if this place was a second home. WP has been going to Nova Scotia every summer for at least fifteen years now; for me, 2010 will be my third summer visiting. 

Dig the little sailboat at the top of the chimney. Now that The Blue Cottage is officially booked, WP and I talk about it everyday. I'm not sure if that helps to ease the wait or if it strains it! We're spending the last two weeks of July there. We'll miss blueberry season this year but I understand it's scallop season in Digby.


Thanks for visiting!

  1. It is a crazy little house. I'll bet it's neat inside. I'm sure you will enjoy your stay, blueberries or not.

  2. Oh, what a wonderful find. It hardly looks like it should stand without wobbling. I love the multi colored bricks. Scallops for blueberries is not a bad trade, both are yummy!

    Thanks so much for posting on my little blue meme! Glad to have you and see your blog!

  4. It surely is a beautiful little house and I know you're going to have a wonderful time staying there for a few weeks. It doesn't look as though we'll be there by July since the wheels of government grind slow but if we're lucky we'll make it before the first blizzard. Is that September?

    Montreal is one of my favorite cities too. I'm spending a little time relearning my official second language :-) a bientot!

  6. Wonderful little piece of creative fantasy! It must be a great experience to spend some time there! Someone must have had a lot of patience for creating that colourful chimney!

  10. Thanks everyone! There are actually a few of these that are part of the same estate - that of a folk artist from the region but only this one is rented out, if I'm not mistaken. And it so inexpensive. We're not luxury-minded and it suits our style just fine. I just hope the bed is comfortable!

    Rebecca: it was my pleasure to join your meme. I love blue. And I agree with you that trading blueberries for scallops is not bad at all!

    Peace and love,
    Pagan Sphinx

  12. Thanks for your comment, Stine. I'd like to add you to my blog roll, if that's okay. I've recently realized all the good stuff I've been missing there!

    I will give a full report of the Blue Cottage when we arrive back in the States. :-)
