These are scenes of the same place, from opposite angles. Weymouth is about 15 min. from Digby, NS. It's small, and pretty, but the fish in the Sissipeeg river are contaminated from a naturally occuring bacteria resulting from the low water levels (as I understood it).
This is the Anglican church in Souris, PEI, on the upper East coast. A sign on the primary graveyard tree says it is still in use in the summer. No doubt it's a good tourist attraction. I've noticed that the churchs in PEI in general are colourful: yellow, blue, striped, etc. Even if the church building is mostly white, the window frames and steeples might be decoratively painted in black, blue, red or green. Church steeples are especially popular to stripe (vertically and horzinatlly). I've never really understood the attraction of tourists who go around looking at churchs before, but I couldn't help craning my head at most of them this week.
I took this near Mount Stewart, PEI. The seagulls hang out in the empty fields, it looks like they're nesting in the furrows. They also hang out in the green grass fields, with or without cows. This guy looked a little overwhelmed byt them, but really, all the cows looked sad on Thursday- it was rainy.
