My World Tuesday


Fuller River, Cape Breton, NS

Finally, my first paddle of the season, 
and oh, didn't it feel wonderful!



Fuller River flows from the ocean to the most wonderful floating bog in the area.
Today we chose to paddle out to the ocean.




The tide was going out, so the paddling was easy 
(until it was time to return!).



There was a lovely little pond, but not much activity. 
 I could hear birds,
but was unfamiliar with their songs.




We beached our boats, grabbed our lunches, 



and climbed the headland.  
This view is showing what we just paddled.
See the lovely little pond?




This view shows what was on the other side!!  
Pretty amazing!


An old wooden lobster trap,
remnants of days gone by!




Street-side again.  This is where we went.
Only the willets and one Northern Flicker
graced us with an appearance.
But, this is a hot spot during fall migration!

You live in such a beautiful place. Perfect day for paddling the waterways and enjoying a picnic lunch.
I don't know how you get anything done. I'm afraid I'd have to move all my projects outside or put them on hold. Thanks for sharing. Nola

Your paddle trip looks like such fun! I wish I'd been there with my little yellow kayak! What is that on the beach from days gone by? I couldn't tell. A basket?
thanks for an interesting post!
