More....from Mahone Bay

Double-dog dare you not to smile!

Another riot of colour, this time from Mahone Bay.

 If this doesn't bring back the sun, what will?

It just makes me happy to look at these places, and recall strolling about in this delightful town on Mahone Bay.


  1. Loved your photos and feel especially proud to see familiar wonderful architecture in my own town, Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia

  2. What a beautiful place to be from, to live in. There was a house for sale as we wandered the town, and it was calling to us, you can be sure of that!

  3. Thanks for that bit of sunshine! We need it right now. This makes me feel that a Down East trip might be in order. Sorry I'm not keeping up with the other posts and commenting - time seems to be at a premium these days.

  4. As long as you're spending it packing in just as much of England as you can!
