light in the port

having stopped for a bite to eat, courtesy of my aunt, at abu christo: one of the many restaurants in the old city, i noticed that the light was turning downright gorgeous… i excused myself and let the ladies order the food while i went to find something to photograph, as it were.

i had wanted to get a cityscape of acre, so that was the direction i went. i was not disappointed. i somehow made my way onto a terrace after climbing short walls and landed on a terrace adjacent to the akko light, the still-in-use lighthouse belonging to the old city. beyond it was the skyline with that glorious light i mentioned…

lighthouse morning

Lighthouse Morninghaving returned to canada and chosen st. catharines as our new hometown, it was time to start exploring a little… here is the marina pier at sunrise, in port dalhousie, a community within the city of st. catharines. the lighthouse in the distance (extreme left of the frame) is located at the end of the harbour walkway trail and is known as the outer range lighthouse while the closer one is referred to as the inner lighthouse.

beyond the boulder

Beyond The Boulder

the woody point lighthouse in its surroundings on the western shore of the south arm of bonne bay. though a lighthouse was initially erected in 1919, the one that stands today was built in 1959 and used a battery-operated light instead of the previous kerosene (1919 -1923) and acetylene (1923-1959) ones.

from the cliffs

From The Cliffs

from my second day in newfoundland. i headed out to the cape spear lighthouse national historic site of canada early in the morning, hoping for some nice light and skies – thankfully, i was not disappointed! cape spear, the easternmost point of north america, houses two lighthouses. this is the old one photographed from some cliffs leading up to the structure.

newfoundland – day 6

day 6 – july 6:

left rocky harbour and started on my drive up to st. anthony. planned a bunch of stops so i knew that what the map said would be a 5hr drive would end up taking a bit longer… lol! first stop: broom point, just north of western brook pond.

situated on the gulf of st. lawrence, broom point is where the mudge brothers spent their summers with their families fishing from 1941 – 1975. the land was purchased by the gros morne national park and in 1990 the original family cabin and fish store were restored. today, interpreters tell the story of the family and its fishing activities (primarily of the 1960’s era)…

somewhere between broom point and the town of st. pauls lies the fishing village of hickey’s cove. so far as i can tell, it does not appear on any maps and there are no road signs indicating it. unlike yesterday’s gull marsh, hickey’s cove has inhabitants during the summer and is substantially larger – there must have been about 20 or so cabins there as opposed to the fishing shacks in the former.

beyond hickey’s cove, i passed through cow head, shallow bay and parson’s pond before hitting another anticipated highlight of the trip: arches provincial park.

a natural rock archway created by tidal action is the centrepiece at arches provincial park. a wonderful place to just chill out and take in the beautiful scenery. i was once again blessed with beautiful skies and cloud formations during my visit…

continuing north along route 430 – the viking trail…

another one of those  unmarked fishing villages – this time josephine’s cove:

i had read about the old lighthouse at flower’s cove and sought to capture it from a couple of different vantage points…

arrived at st. anthony in the late afternoon after driving for about 9 hours or so… the fog was rolling in for the evening. i got a little dinner and went out to explore the town before calling it a day. 😉

fisgard lighthouse

Fisgard Lighthouse

fisgard lighthouse is the canadian west coast’s first lighthouse and is still operational today! it was built by the british around 1860 before vancouver island was ever part of canada.

this particular day consisted of touring around the city of victoria and its outlying areas. i picked up a bite to eat in the late afternoon and headed to the waterfront. imagine my surprise when unexpectedly, this scene was staring at me!
