~ 73 ~ Walk With Me in the Maritimes of Canada

last month
67 in walkwithme

It was a beautiful, balmy day...

IMG_3437.jpg

I didn't feel like walking at all, yet sure enough when I got off my ass and out into the world, I immediately felt more energized. This shit's better than coffee folks!

IMG_3421.JPG

I edited some of my photos from today, it was grey out and you've seen these scenes so many times now, that I thought it would be cool to change it up. I haven't walked this way since our last big storm surge, it looks like it created some havoc even this far in the Bay.

What the broken dock looked like from the other side.

The sea must have risen very high...

IMG_3424.JPG

I'm assuming this seaweed was all over the road and someone has put it into piles? I've never seen this before.
Actually, I should go back tomorrow and take it for my garden...

IMG_3426.JPG

IMG_3425.JPG

I've never seen so much seaweed here at low tide, it was definitely spewed up from the storm surge. All sorts of random pieces of wood and random crap. It smelled like heaven to me over here, the warm weather has allowed that ocean smell to reemerge, and with all this extra seaweed, it's like a flash back of summer.

What would a #walkwithme in the Maritimes be without it?

And their shit...

And the shit I put up with from mine...

Does anyone know where today's secret egg nest is?

Yeah that's right "The Punisher", I am talking about you too.

I know you've just been dying to see the Puddle Barometer, haha, above is yesterday's, and below is today's reading. You can see that it's really warmed up and the ground is easily taking in water, as well as some evaporation too. It's supposed to get cold again starting tomorrow, so we'll check back in with the P.B. then.

Hey @lyndsaybowes another beautiful set of pictures! I really enjoyed this walk!!

The photos today are exceptionally breath taking. I love that sort of sea side architecture. Even though I am lucky enough to also live by the sea, it is such a part of me that I can look at seascape images for hours and often do! And I agree, getting out there and walking in nature is as good as coffee, although a cup before hand doesn't hurt.

As I am typing this the wind and rain are battering Toad Hall. It is so good to know that out there the snow is all going away. Tomorrow is to be a balmy 60F as well, but then the cold comes back, sad face.

I am a bit worried, as my silly quail, who have now been allowed to go out of their pen into a little run, dont seem to know to go back in and are huddled under the logs I put in there from the rain! Maybe they like it that way.

That does look like a high tide. I LOVE it here when we get the magic combination of a new moon and a really high tide as when it leaves we get so many treasures. And of course the tidal flats at low tide then are also full of good finds.

Here I am writing another letter in your comments. You will just have to get used to it. :)

Thanks for liking today's shots. Sorry to hear about the storm and your poor little quail :( :( Their huddle must be nice and warm at least <3 <3

I definitely indulged in a cup or 8 before I went hahaha!! Write me anytime Donna, I love your letters <3 <3

It does look like there was some damage due to the storm. I would run out there for that seaweed. Excellent for the garden.

It smelled like heaven to me over here, the warm weather has allowed that ocean smell to reemerge, and with all this extra seaweed, it's like a flash back of summer.

When storm are approaching us the ocean air has this funky fish smell that we normally don't get. I love the fresh salt air smell that we get when it is not stormy. We don't seaweed on our beach. Logs and driftwood yes. Seaweed no. It is probably due to the reef that sits just off the shore.

Nice walk once again. It's hard to believe this is number 73!

I think I know the fishy smell you are talking about...we get something like that here at times, the kids call it "butt mud" lololol!!! eww.w.....

LOL. Where did they come up with that one? Too funny...

At low tide there are some pretty muddy parts you can sink right in to your thighs. And with the smell...well...

The storm did wreak a lot of havoc but nature will always heal itself. Outside is still beautiful. 'The punisher' , that name always amuses me and often reminds me of law courts and Judges

Yay ... no ice today so I don't feel the cold! I have used seaweed and seagrass in my garden and have very good results! They are definitely much cheaper than buying fertilizers.

·

That's awesome that you use seaweed for fertilizer!!

This walk is sounding different because the weather is slowly warming. I can say that it's a free feel breath. You well captured every image. You never forget to click an image of puddle barometer and never forget to share puddle barometer image in the last of your blog. Lol... Haha <3 <3 <3 <3

I always dreamed of living by the sea. I see a special charm. The cries of gulls, this particular incomparable smell of salt spray. The wind. I love it. I believe that one day will fulfill my dream. And going to see the ocean every day, and breathe it.

It was such a beautiful day in the Maritimes today. Infact I was just out having a puff on the deck in my tee-shirt. Wacky weather eh? It was so cold last week now it's mild. Great walk action Lynds, I love the shots of wharfs and old wooden structures plus ofcourse the water, basically I love where we live! Have a great weekend

I love these walk with me posts that you do and even more than that, I love that they get my husband bluelightbandit outside more often than usual. I believe they give him extra initiative to go get outside and walk, which is a good thing! I hope to participate soon:)

You got off your what? I am shocked. I am not allowed to be thinking about your...................................................
OK I got back up off the floor. Now. What was the discussion about???
Oh, I remember. I am afraid to put my foot down now. I heard the word shirt so many times. I thought I was swimming in it. Ha ha
C'mon. Have a little fun. You are so funny. Ha ha
I nearly fall out of my chair laughing.
All joking aside. All Francis? Yes all. OK
I love your walks and photos. It is so interesting to me to see what you see.
The area and place that you live in is a wonderful place to be.
I love being around the water. You should be able to catch good fish there.
OK. I am seated again now. Better close out the reply while I am "the behind."
Francis. Shame. You aren't supposed to say that. Ha ha

I just love that old building. I can see why it is your favorite. So much character and history. I loved that you put it in B&W. It is amazing how the minute we get moving we feel better and motivated. Way to go for getting out there today. : )

Photography is awesome! Nice capture, camera can really work wonders. You walks are amazing. If I live there, most probably I'd walk everyday with all those scenic views. Keep walking @lyndsaybowes and thank you for sharing the photos, transporting us to the nice views that your seeing. Keep walking, keep sharing!

Wow, the storm surge sure is hard on the docks, isn't it?
That's one good camera, when you can get a picture of the seagull clear enough to see the detail of it's knees...

It's a canon t2i. I had my zoom lens on (you can see I'm really technical lollol I have no clue what mm it is, I could go look) and then I cropped the photo on the computer and added the 'chrome' filter to it.

54

Hahh the bird and their shit, that one made me laugh! The first picture of the bird makes me jealous! It is so sharp and the bokeh is like music to my eyes!

It is an awesome sensation to be just in the nature for a while, with the smell of the ocean. You live in an beautiful area I believe!

Love,
Sha

How did you get such a nice picture of that first bird... its so clear and close up. Cant wait foe the summer☀️ why was there seaweed on the side of the road? Did the water really get that high? Amazing post btw 😁👍

Zoomed in, and then cropped the pic on the computer and added a filter called 'chrome'. I'm glad you liked it, I use a canon t2i :)

I would definately scoop up that seaweed! I bet the chickens would like digging through it too. That first shot of the gull is stunning :) lovely editing work <3

Algae are useful for Your garden. A good gift after the storm. There will be a lot of nutrition for the plants. I read about its benefits. I see that the ocean is a special life. I see that everything is subject to water. It is interesting to look at the houses on the coast. Thank you for the walk.

Nice photo series! The coast looks so different from the Caribbean where I am living now. I am really happy to see a beach without plastic trash though - a very rare sight here... Canada is very high on my travel list :) Thanks for inspiration :)

·

I'm sorry that you have such a trash problem on your beaches, that is such a shame. :(

·
·

  ·  last month

Yeah, not just here though... pollution from plastic trash is a serious issue in most tropical/subtropical parts of the world. Countries like Thailand, Indonesia etc. are even worse than what we have here in Mexico. So it really feels good to know there are still unspoilt places where nature can thrive. I just googled where you live (it looks very nice and peaceful there:) ) and its Nova Scotia right? The closest I have been so far was Bar Harbor, Maine - also a very nice place :)

I'm with you on getting out for a walk being the antidote to not feeling like doing anything! Getting outside is always good for perking up. I think it looks grayer from the inside looking out. Good insight about the earth taking in more water -- that puggle-o-meter sure works well! ; )

I had never heard the term 'Maritimes of Canada' before.

Then when I was updating the latest list of Homesteaders and Preppers on steemit I came across @walkerland who said they live in the Maritimes of Canada.

By the way we have now reached over 300 homesteaders and preppers here now.

There are 26 from Canada on the latest list.

If you get a minute do check those over and let me know if I have missed any others you know of in Canada. Thank you.

Thank Goodness the storm is over. Seaweeds are high on nutrition and I know you will find good use for them. Some sea weeds are edible and packed with a lot of nutrients. Thanks for sharing.

Yes,there'll be a pleasant weather after all this mass by storm.
