Well at least I cannot say I had a great sleep and woke up to sunny skies when this was around!!!
but soon back to normal!!
I arrived in the lovely University town of Wolfville…where I went to the Farmer’s Market..
You know I cannot go past a strawberry stand without buying….Guy what about those blueberries??? I did the next best thing and bought you a jar of jam!!
As I mentioned this is a lovely University town and there were many students and parents around…and what do students do for enjoyment? They go here
and do this!!!
Looks like a lot of fun…
This whole area is all about tides..
It is also a very fertile area
My next destination was here
Just what I needed a 10 mile hike!!!
There was a small harbour where I parked Ramona and the tide was low and I took this photo
Almost 4 hours later when I came back…
The trail was like this
The whole 5 miles in was all treed!!!
I passed many university students but they were all on their way back. Due to the fact it was all trees my little old mind began to wonder and seeing all these kids reminded me of my University days…actually that statement cam be misconstrued…I never actually went to University but as a young Police Officer in Sheffield I did attend the teaching hospital’s campus usually on Friday nights for the student nurse’s dance…..Nancy Norman now there is a name I have not thought about in years….but that story is for another time!!!!
So then I start thinking about college and I did actually attend Police College for three months when I was 19 years old…..4 things I remember about that time……..1. Getting three haircuts in one day!!!2.How long a run it was around the perimeter of the compound it was actually an old RAF station and huge!! 3. after 40 odd years I still can remember the definition of stealing!!! “A person steals, who without the consent of the owner, fraudulently and without a claim of right made in good faith, takes and carries away anything capable of being stolen at the time of such taking permanently to deprive the owner thereof” WOW what recall!! 4. Ruth….I cannot remember her last name but she was a police woman from London and we sort of hung out together studying and such!!!! After the course ended we went our separate ways and lost touch. Move the clock forward about 7 years and I am in my office at the airport in Bermuda when the Training officer calls me and tells me they have 12 new recruits just arrived from England and he wants to bring them to my department so I can show them around and I say sure and the next morning when they arrive there was Ruth with her new policeman husband…this can be a small world!!
Boy did I digress…anyway the trail was all trees till the Split comes into view and the vistas were beautiful!!!
I wore my lucky Mally the Moose T shirt but no sightings!!
The hike wasn’t so bad and I was back in just under 4 hours!!!
I again had checked the map and headed for
where I had read the tides were great to watch because of the boats in the harbour I was also hoping to spend the night here!!
The following photos are shots taken about 2 hours apart!!
Did find a spot for the night!!
It is a very quaint little place not much going on but very scenic!!
I leave tomorrow and head to Kingston which is just under the blue Fundy on the left where I am staying with some new friends!!!
Have a great weekend!!!
I think in some e mails I sent out I referred to my hike today to Cape Spit…that obviously should be Split!!!
