Nova Scotia Field Trip, Part 2 ~ Marine Drive

"Creative people are curious, flexible, persistent, and independent 
with a tremendous spirit of adventure and a love of play." 
~ Henri Matisse, French painter (1869-1954)

After my business class today I decided to take a long detour home, instead of driving my usual route up the #7 highway to  Lawrencetown. I headed to the very beginning of Marine Drive in Eastern Passage, stopping at the scenic points between Cow Bay and Rainbow Haven Beach, ending at Lawrencetown Beach. I was thrilled to see people engaged in so many different activities, celebrating our Ocean Playground in their own way...

At Stoneys Beach, just before Lawrencetown Beach, is where kite surfers make the most of windy days, and dogs run and play on the vast expanse of sand at low tide.

  1. Happy International Surfing Day! Hope the hunt for inspiration is going well (certainly seems like you have the right idea for research, anyway! I'm envious!). I gave you a shout out in my blog, though I unfortunately haven't mastered the art of "pinging". I'll post the link below, and in the meantime, happy roadtripping!
