Early morning in Nova Scotia

Early morning in Nova Scotia

Postby earwig » Nov 23, 2008 8:08 am

The driveway is shovelled, the snow plough appeared sometime overnight, the sun will shine today, and I am dusting off my skiis.

A much prettier day than yesterday morning.

A much prettier picture than I get out of any of my windows. The magic of the country, so peaceful. Edie

What a gorgeous scene. As others have said, it could easily be on a Christmas card. Just beautiful.

A lovely scenery picture Betty and I'll bet you're out on your skiis right now. Please stay off the railway bridges - wouldn't want anything to happen to you.

Thanks all.

Joan, I LOL at your remark about the railway bridge. None near by my place and that is where I was skiing today. I was very careful as I had my camera with me. It was a gorgeous ski, I just had to watch where I went as there was a lovely crust so I stayed on top and there was a skiff of snow to keep me from sliding all over the place, except where the wind had blown it away of course.

BBQ, different fence but I may use it for Halloween next year.
