Ruby Tuesday - Touches of Nova Scotia Part II

Ruby Red Touches of Nova Scotia












I can't help it - I love Nova Scotia! It's a bit of a therapy for me to revisit my summer travels through photos. I am deeply affected by stress so I am very aware of how fortunate I am to be able to have an entire summer off with such rewarding sights and sounds and textures.  

Thank you to everyone who so kindly leaves a comment. The blog is really for me and as selfish as that sounds, I actually don't mean it that way at all. I say that in a humble way because I post so much and all of it is esoteric or odd or personal and commonplace. It always amazes me how the comments from other bloggers has led me to such interesting discoveries - new friends, new perspectives, new skies, new ways of looking through a lens. I'm especially fond of Ruby Tuesday. Red is a warm color on the color wheel and this is nicely illustrated by the warmth of the Ruby Tuesday participants. Thanks, Mary, for creating it and keeping it going.

  1. Hi Pagan Sphinx! I saw your note to Mary on RT and I just wanted to dispel any bad omen... so I came right on over... and I'm glad I did. Although I've traveled extensively in Canada, I have not been east of Quebec, and I am sorry about that. Your series of photos today with lovely smatterings of red are delightful. hat's got to be the cutest little boat! And I've not seen colorful crab cages before today, and now this is the third in one day! Synchronicity, or what? Of course these are probably lobster cages, but there wouldn't be a difference, would there? Have yourself a fantastic week. And as for stress of any kind...? Let it go, let it go, let it go... :-)

  2. What a beautiful series. I've never been to NS but from your photos it reminds me a lot of Maine, which is one of my very favorite places on earth. I know what you mean too about the plentiful (and CHEAP! and delicious!) lobsters - just because I didn't eat that one doesn't mean I didn't eat every other one that wasn't nailed to a sign, in pretty much any form available. Best of all though is simple steamed lobster, and no one does it better than my dad :).

  4. I really enjoy lobsters and barn red nautical buildings set under the cool maritime sky. And that red boat sitting under that wonderful NS cottage is stunning. A day of sun minus the oceanic fog is a day to savor!
