Rocks and More Rocks!


Sorry for leaving you hanging yesterday.....
 this is what has captured my attention,
so much that a nosedive over the rock face
was the only answer...

Mr. Orangie slipped out of my mouth 
and did a ricochet dance over the edge into
this mini-crevasse!

 See...the split/divide just to the left
of camera man Jim...
(if you were beside him facing this way)
I saved Mr. Orangie from a fate 
worse than death...!

 Time to move on,
so we headed further along the rocks ~~~

 and found this green area
with plenty of low lying vegetation...

 I even found this wading pool
and since I was HOT
I jumped in for a cooling off session....weird colour!?

 Want to see an interesting effect that a telescopic lens can do?
So first....
 look at this picture above...
you see....plenty of rocks, water(bay), and then lighthouse.

 Secondly...
you see...."me" playing on the rock with the bay and the lighthouse far in back.

Then, thirdly...
you see....the rocks in front that appear to be connected to the 
lighthouse rock outcrop....
not so much...that bay is still in between us...cool eh!

 After all this excitement and playing
camera games....we decided it was time
to head back to the vehicle
over the scrub grasses and barrens...

 and over the granite rocks

finally
a quick dip in my favourite outdoor pool
a retreival
and 
then
homeward bound!
~~~

I hope you may have learned something new
and fresh that gives you an idea of what 
coastal Nova Scotia is like...
if you click 
you'll see more info on
Peggy's Cove 
and maybe some day you may
decide to take 'er in.

~~~

PS...Mr Orangie ended up in a crevasse and now calls
the granite rocks
HOME!

  6. Now I understand! You needed to save Mr. Orangie. I'm sorry you lost him, pretty girl, but I'm sure your daddies will get you a new one that is just as brightly-coloured and fun to play with.

    On the happy side, it looks like you had a great time. This is a beautiful place and if I lived there, I'd be hanging out there doing camera tricks, too.

  14. Oh no, Mr. Orangie! Well, I'm glad it was him rather than you. Seeing you diving for him scared me just a little!

    At first, I thought that you were on vacation in Scotland based on the photos. That's a cool part of your homeland!

  17. Oh gosh,, well I am glad to know everyone was okay and did not fall in the ocean.
    I wonder if a big wave might come sometime and free mr orange.. and then mr orange might float away to the oceans in other lands? I will look for it on my beach next time I go to my ocean.
    All the tricks with your camera are soo cool!
    love
