There is a virtual cultural parade wherever you turn; and, in the evenings, this Bluenose Shore town lights up with lively local music concerts and theatre productions.Glimpses Playbill: click for Production about Lunenburg County

Fall on the South Shore of Nova Scotia

It’s Fall as I write this on the South Shore of Nova Scotia, and the colours of the hardwood trees are still going strong.  Against the blue of all the waterfront, it’s spectacular!

This photo is from Lot 6, Loon Trail, McGowan Lake on Halloween weekend.

Walking through the Beech trees and the beach, at the same time, is a beautiful blessing.  Who knew that there were coloured leaves that stayed on the tree, until the new spring leaf growth pushed them off?

Another waterfront listing that has an amazing palette now is “Rhondah’s Fishing Hole”.

Popular with fly-fishers and naturalists, the Lahave River is the Rhine of Nova Scotia.
