Home (1)

As I mentioned in the previous post, I took a lot of photos while in Nova Scotia. I'm still sorting through them and trying to decide which ones to post here. As with most of the pics I post, I'm not really trying to be "artistic". Rather, I'm just trying to give the viewer an idea of what it looks like in this or that place.

My family's home is in a place called North River, a few miles north of the town of Truro (which itself is about 100 km north of Halifax). As you can see from the shots below, our house is in the countryside (click to enlarge).

The road home. I used to take a bus to school (about 10 km). Many were the very late Friday/Saturday nights that I used to hitchhike home.

  1. The home and its views are lovely. Makes me homesick.

  2. I do love your pics.
    How can someone feel homesick for a place he/she has never been to before?
    I guess my inner she-elf gets nostalgic for the green woods and the peaceful atmosphere you can actually breathe from your pictures...

  3. Glenn,
    Thanks. They make me a bit homesick, too.

    Usual Stuff,
    I'm glad the pics stirred your "inner Canadian"!

  4. Whatz it like in the snow?

  5. Merkin,
    It looks quite pretty in the snow, but it's damned cold!
