Bear River Revisited

8 07 2011

I love Bear River, this little tidal village just inland from Digby, Nova Scotia. The last time I wrote about it was in April 2009 and everything was closed as the season hadn’t begun.

Last week-end Jeff and I headed to Digby Pines Resort for our 40th Wedding Anniversary!

We decided to stop at Bear River to have our picnic beside the river. There is a lovely garden, complete with picnic tables and benches.

The roses were in full bloom,

and a wonderful perfume filled the air.

I’m not sure what this lovely white flower is – a member of the geranium?

Or these?

I think this must be the remains of an old wharf at the riverside.

Bear River has some great little shops and galleries.

The Flight of Fancy is a fantastic shop with art, pottery, glass, jewellery, rug-hooking, carvings …….

Myrtle and Rosie’s.

This Bargain Book Shop seems to sell a lot more than just books!

We saw the sign for the Sunday afternoon market and headed back to the river.

There I met Flora Doehler – a Facebook Friend, artist and writer of a Blog about her life in Bear River.

These young folk filled the air with lively Irish music.

It was a hot day and we continued our travels to Digby Pines for a swim in their outdoor pool. (another Blog to follow)

Jackie, it was wonderful to meet you and Jeff in ‘real time’! I’m so glad that you enjoyed your visit here and it’s pretty neat to see my photo on your site too! Please come again and as for us, we will check out your neck of the woods in the fall. The summer is just too crazy with markets!
