Nova Scotia Lighthouses


It's been a busy time in Nova Scotia despite the fact that I haven't been feeling very well the last couple of weeks. Some kind of sinus problem and I don't believe it's allergies because I don't suffer from allergies. My ears have been plugged up most days since we got back from North Carolina in late April almost like having water in my ears. Lots of pressure in my head which increases when I stand up quickly or bend over to pick something up. I've tried a variety of decongestants and have found extra strength Sudafed seems to work the best for me along with an Advil or two when needed for headaches. Hoping I turn the corner on this thing soon.

The cool wet days we've seen in Nova Scotia have finally ended and the sun has been out in full force. The drive down to Bridgetown from Greenwood is such a pretty drive when the sun is shining. We generally drive down to visit Chris's mother every 2-3 days and lately it's been so nice out that we've been able to take her for a walk and then sit outside for a few hours with her too which she really enjoys.


Chris and I drove down to Annapolis Royal in the rain last week. It's such a pretty little town and so historic too. It is one of the first settlements in Nova Scotia dating back to the 1700s. Today's last two photos were taken in Annapolis Royal. Note the wet boardwalk leading to the lighthouse. The last shot is a local fishing boat in dry dock. I took a shot of this same dry dock a couple of years ago and there was different boat in the dry dock so it appears to be in regular use. Hoping we can get back to Annapolis Royal on a sunny weekend when the farmers market is in full swing before we head back to Ontario.

    Sounds very much like a sinus infection. They can be pretty serious and you might need some anti-biotics. A trip to a doctor sounds like a wise thing to do.
