Foggy Nova Scotia

29 06 2009

When Jeff and I first came to Nova Scotia to see if we’d like to live here, we went first to Cape Breton, then to the Annapolis Valley. I did not want to look at the coast from Halifax to Yarmouth, because I’d read in the guide books that it was always foggy. So, the day before we had to fly back to Scotland we thought we’d head to the airport via Lunenburg and the South Shore. That was May 2007 and Lunenburg was in the middle of a heat wave with no fog visible. We fell in love with Lunenburg at first sight and made that our goal. Last year was our first summer in our house at Lunenburg and we did have several foggy days – I keep a record of them in my diary – but normally the fog would lift by about 10am. We have now had 10 foggy days in a row, and although it is hot, I would really like to see the sky for a bit.

On Sunday, we had a lovely foggy walk past the houses we’d photographed when we kayaked here.

Tonight we had a walk around Lunenburg, so I thought I’d take some different foggy shots, like Lunenburg Harbour.

The wind seems to have changed – the sun has arrived at last!
