Chignecto Ship Railway

Fort Lawrence, Nova Scotia

I finally got a chance to try and find this place. I briefly learned about this in school way back in the day and last year I started looking back into what this place was all about. In the 1890's a massive infrastructure project was started that would transport ships across the Isthmus of Chignecto. This railway would span from where the Missaguash River empties into the  Cumberland Basin all the way to Tidnish on the Northumberland Straight thereby allowing shipping traffic from the Bay of Fundy to easily access the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

Nocturne Halifax: Art At Night

Nocturne, the annual art event in Halifax happened last night. The weather was so nice that we decided to make the trip up from the South Shore and it was an excellent decision. Here are some photos from the night.

The Northern Lights from Crescent Beach

Check it out! I've been trying to catch the aurora borealis for a few years. Everytime I hear about the possibility of seeing them this far south, there seems to be cloudy weather but not tonight. It was clear as a bell. We found this spot on Crescent Beach Road. Perfect place to take it all in.
