Prince’s Inlet – Part 2

25 05 2009

Past the yacht club on Herman’s Island there are some more lovely houses. Again, this house has its own separate guest house. This is one of our favourites.

Then there is this ultra modern design by the architect Mackay Lyons. I do like the park like setting it has.

This little tern, resting on this float, wasn’t too happy about us passing close by.

We made our way across to a little beach on Covey Island and hauled up.

Jeff just couldn’t wait to get into the picnic.

Prince’s Inlet to Covey Island

25 05 2009

On Saturday we decide to try another little paddle on a different local bay, Prince’s Inlet. It was a beautiful sunny day, as we unloaded the kayak and set off.

kayak viewThere are some particularly lovely houses around this bay, with the most amazing locations. If we win the lottery then this would definitely be an area where  we would like to buy a house. We have  seen these houses from the back (roadside) but it was nice to pass right along below their front gardens.

House 1

I particularly like this natural wooden house with its lovely garden and Scot’s Pine trees. It seems to fit into its setting very well.

And how would you like to come and stay at the guest house of the house on the right?

Again the location is everything.

House 4

Many houses have their own dock.House 5 with dockWe paddled past the Lunenburg Yacht Club on Herman’s Island. As you can see it is not quite the season here yet, most people waiting till mid June to put their boats into the water.

But we did pass one lone yacht further out in the bay.Lone yacht 3

July/August, these waters will be full of yachts and power boats. It was nice to have the water to ourselves this week-end.
