Photo Of The Day: White Lavender

I never knew that white lavender existed! Apparently, this one just happened to be white when it bloomed. How interesting!

Did you know about white lavender?

Long Awaited Plane Ride 2022

Off to Halifax!! It’s been so long since I had take a plane ride! To be honest, I had this habit of wearing a mask on the plane even before the pandemic. I discovered that it kept my nose and my skin from drying out. Japan Airline used to call it a “Moisture Mask” back then…

Have you taken a plane ride yet?

Orwell Corner Historic Village in the Winter

When I visited the Orwell Corner Historic Village, it was closed, as summer was its open season. However, I still took a quick look around. The snow that surrounded the buildings reminded me of the pictures that I saw in history textbooks.

Peering through the windows…

I hope that I can get to visit again when it is open in the summer!

The Sou’Wester Restaurant

After taking some beautiful photos at Peggy’s Cove, we decided to visit the little gift shop and take a look at the menu at the Sou’wester.

The Atlantic lobster roll was the first item we ordered. Seafood chowder and the large loaf of cheese bread helped to combat the cold.

Before I left, I bought a small figurine of the Peggy’s Cove lighthouse!

Visit To Peggy’s Cove In Winter

Winter was still around, so there was less visitors to Peggy’s Cove.

“Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse, also known as Peggy’s Point Lighthouse, is one of Nova Scotia’s most well-known lighthouses and may be the most photographed in Canada. Located in the quaint fishing village of Peggy’s Cove along the South Shore, Peggy’s Point Lighthouse was built in 1915.”—- NovaScotia.com

The weather was very cold and windy at first, but the sun eventually came out. The blue skies were a perfect background for the photos.

All the water was frozen!

There were signs to remind us not to venture to far onto the black rocks, as these were the dangerously slippery ones. However, visitors could walk and hike slowly on the flat grey rocks for photos.

The scenery was very beautiful and serene. No wonder this spot was known to be one of the most iconic places of Canada!

Cruising On The Fundy Rose

Image Courtesy of Wikipedia

Technically, it was not a cruise ship. But as I stepped onto the Fundy Rose, the interior reminded me of my cruise trips. This ferry ship brought passengers back and forth from St. John, New Brunswick and Digby, Nova Scotia.

There was a cafeteria, and televisions around for entertainment.

The Fundy Rose was named after Rose Fortune, who was born a slave but gained freedom at the age of 10 when her parents became Black Loyalists. She arrived at Nova Scotia in 1783 and began a business of transferring luggages from the docks to hotels. Rose even became the first female police officer in North America.

What an amazing woman!

Passing Through YYC

YYC stood for Calgary International Airport.

It’s my first time being here and was waiting to transfer to my next destination.

I thought that the shuttle that took us around was very cute!

When I travelled, I would search for the most obscure installations of art or decor.

My favourite sculpture was the Nature’s Playground by Jeff de Boer. It had sensors that would activate the different animals in the art piece. I liked the ground hog the most because it would pop in and out of its burrow and turn its head to watch you!

Bonne voyage!
