Autumn Ramblings

 
 
Would you care to join me for a walk around town?  We start our adventure close to the parish church, which was established in 1804.
 
 
Along the main street and down to the park.  As in much of rural Nova Scotia, the buildings are generally of wood construction with siding, rather than built of brick or stone.

 
The bandstand is in the park, which is adjacent to the river.

 
Past the Cathedral and onto the University campus.  The population of the town doubles during the academic year.


Not quite dreaming spires, but still some impressive buildings to be seen.

 
The last of the autumn colours before this week's wind and rain brought down the leaves.  The campus was quiet because it was Saturday morning, so my walk was uninterrupted.   It was great to get out in the fresh air and get some exercise on one of the last remaining fine days before winter.

This was FUN to see, Marie! It looks so nice where you are... reminds me very much of New England in the US. :o) Happy Days ((LOVE & HUGS))

What an idyllic town you live in, Marie! Given how cold it is, it always surprises me that the buildings are made of wood and not something like brick or stone but it is the same in Scandinavia, too. You're really lucky to live in such a beautiful place and that was a lovely walk. I'd love to see more of the place!

Best wishes,

I enjoyed rambling around town with you. From your photos it looks like it has lots of impresive buildings and lots of open spaces too:)
