We returned last week from a wonderful driving tour through the Atlantic Provinces of Canada--Nova Scotia, Cape Breton Island, Prince Edward Island and New Burnswick. Nine days and 2,400 miles after we left, we pulled into our driveway, unfolded our bodies and rejoiced that we had made the decision to go!

Not only was the food wonderful, the music and dancing captivating, the golf courses amazing, and the people just so friendly, but the landscape was remarkable in its spaciousness and simplicity.

We visited Peggy's Cove, where the rocky coast is worn by the sea into smooth,
rounded shapes that invite climbing and meditation.

The Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island, was in some places serene...

and in others, dramatic.

Looking at the spacious landscapes--so much sky and land--I only wished for more time and the opportunity to go out and paint, paint, paint!

  1. The next to the last photo in this post reminds me of Virginia Webb's very dark landscape with the moon. I like it and this photo.
