Granville Ferry

Thursday, July 18, 2013

I've spent the past couple of weeks visiting my Mom and Dad on the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia.  I feel very lucky to been able to take this time with them and to have the ocean as my backyard.  They live in one of the most picturesque little villages I have ever visited.  Just across the water from Annaoplis Royal, Granville Ferry is a unique piece of the world.  Nestled between a wooded mountain and a sheltered portion of the Fundy shore, the houses are an interesting mix of captain's houses, classic Victorian and Georgian Colonial homes.  I take a walk through the village everyday to collect the mail at the Community Hall.  The other day I decided to snap some pictures as I went.  Here is a selection of some of my favourites.  I really could have kept going for pages.  There are so many little gems here.  The little red one just below is the workshop of a cobbler that makes shoes for Broadway.  Also in my pics are a converted church house, a captain's house with a model ship in the window and my Mom and Dad's, soon to be painted, mustard and green porch - the best in the village I'd have to say.
