In the Greening

Most recent trip to the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia where I saw my final uncommoncommonart.  Another great day.  If the summer hadn’t have been so dry the rush of water in the stream would have increased the full sensual experience.  

The location was perfect and a wonderful end to the art and nature treasure hunt.


This could be haunting at dusk and closer to Halloween.  It looked and felt  like an abandoned civilization.


The above photos are of Gaspereau Vineyards first as seen after the gloaming. 

Then Luckett’s Vineyards with their wonder views of the sacred Cape Blomidon.  They also have a British red phone box in the vineyard and you can call anywhere in North America for free.  Look for it in the first photo.

It was too crowded for lunch that day but I instead went to Troy in Wolfville and forgot to take a picture of the vegetarian platter until it was too late.  Oops!  Yum and very shareable.

See resto below-nice Turkish decor.   



Luckett Vineyards.  There is some green in this pic.  

Sand Dollar Beach, Nova Scotia


    A lovely day at this beach which is meant to be visited at low tide.  It is very shallow and warm.  I didn’t find any sand dollars this year but did last year.  The water feels soft. The place other worldly.

     Nearby is the awesome Rose Bay General Store which is store, restaurant,liquor store and bookstore.
