Baleine Peninsula

Fall is in the air and the weather is rapidly changing.  
Summer sped by in the blink of an eye 
and I can't quell the feeling that I missed it. 

But then I journey back through the hundreds of photos I took,
and realize I was part of summer this year.

Here I sit, enjoying a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, after hiking several hours through the barren headlands of the Baleine Peninsula., what seemed like a hundred of acres of bog, and several miles of isolated beaches 

Black Guillemots

experiencing the wonder

Remains of a drowned forest
of such diverse habitat.

Artful sculptures
Nature's nursery
Fine dining

The bog extends right up to the edge of the cobble beach.  I couldn't resist including a snapshot of these empty sea urchin shells, left all in a row.  Reminded me of the story of the Three Bears.

No matter where I turned, or where I wandered,

a magnificent display surrounded me.

Truly, MY WORLD rocks!

Won't you check out other My World posts

What a magnificent place the Baleine Peninsula is. This year I visited Nova Scotia for the first time, but I hope it's not the last time. SO beautiful.

Lots of interesting scenery here Karen. I particularly like the scene that you are sat in. That would have made a great scene (if you hadn't been in it) I mean that in the nicest possible way of course {:) Such detail.
