Winter Drive

Our trip to Cavendish before New Year involved an interesting drive.  Once we left the main highway, we passed through New London and stopped briefly near St John’s Presbyterian Churh.  It is certainly an imposing building.  As it was cold, we didn’t get out of the car for a closer look.

We passed a frozen bay with houses dotted along the shore.

The roads were icy, as I mentioned in my previous post.  Driving in such conditions is challenging, to say the least.

 They were also snow-covered in places.

We were looking for Green Gables, but somehow managed to miss the turning, as it was not well signed. 

Instead, we headed down into North Rustico, with the intention of finding somewhere safe to turn before retracing our steps.

We discovered fishermen’s huts adjacent to the shore.

 Neatly stacked lobster pots lined up outside.

One hut stood out with its bright red door and fishing buoy decorations.

This is the fish market.


And all of the boats hauled out for the winter.

Back on the highway, I snapped a photo of this church, but I’m not exactly sure where it is.

 Looking out across the ice.

And snow-covered fields in a winter landscape.

It was lovely to get out and see something of the countryside, but we were glad to return home to the warm and a cup of Yorkshire Gold.


  1. Oh goodness it does look very cold. Love the photos of both churches and the fishermen's huts. How beautiful they all look in the snow:)

    1. It has been extremely cold, but we are getting a short respite - until the arrival of the next winter storm...

  2. Such a pretty church! Very fun to see more of the lay of the land there, architecture, etc... Thanks for taking us along for the drive. :) ((HUGS))

  3. Gosh, Marie, you're living in a perfect Winter Wonderland. It looks beautiful. Wishing you a lovely weekend, Bonny xox
