We enjoyed getting away to White Head Island in the Bay of Fundy. The rugged beauty of this secluded destination is just perfect. And having family there gives us the best reason for a visit.
Time seems to stand still as life ebbs and flows with the tides and ferry schedule.
There are beaches that dazzle the eyes with beautiful shades of rocks.
Who knew ordinary beach rocks could be so pretty? The water brings out their deep and varied hues.
Then there is the large sandy beach that requires a hike or a good vehicle to discover.
The lighthouse is pretty even at low tide.
If you know a local, you could go pick periwinkles!
Or help spread dulse (edible seaweed) for the family business.
Ahh, the simple island life with the sea-salty air and the ferry’s fog horn is just how we remembered it last year.

Ahh almost like a trip there. So nice to see the pictures & posting of White Head. It is like a different culture or world when compared to hustle & bustle of mainstream USA. That’s because there is no main street. No traffic unless it’s the lobster boats hurrying out of harbor in lobster season. Or the few cars lined up to get off the island on the ferry on the scheduled ferry runs of Lady White Head . Thanks Abby. I love Pebble Beach. There’s 1 spot on the islandif we were to ever build it”d be there. We call it our million $ view of the ever changing colors for August sunsets.

Just beautiful, Abby. I am the lady who sits behind your mother in church. We had a conversation about your vacation recently. When our children were the age of your children, we went for two weeks each summer to the top of northern Maine to my parent’s little potato farm on the hill. How much our children loved those vacations, and the memories live with them to this day.
As a poor pastor’s family, we could never have afforded a two-week vacation if it hadn’t been for Dad’s farm.
I am so glad you are enjoying your time in Nova Scotia!
