A Story About A Girl

Lighthouses, beachcombing & campfires

Eddie and I went last week to Weymouth to get some drinking water from the spring there as the water at my parent’s house though technically safe to drink, bathe and cook with smells and tastes gross so they refill water at the old Jones bottling plant there that has a spring outside that is free for everyone to use and a frequent place for people to get water in droughts.

On the way back we stopped quickly at Gilbert’s Cove Lighthouse as I wanted a picture of the lighthouse and also to check out the beach there. [...]  READ MORE

Delaps Cove

Yesterday Eddie and I spent the whole afternoon hiking a small trail to the Delaps Cove Waterfall. It’s only about a 40 minute drive from us. The trail itself is just a small 2.2 km hike but it was kind of hard going because a lot of the trail was very muddy and we only had sneakers. At one point I sunk past my ankles ruining my sneakers and muddying my jeans and getting soaked in the process but it was still a lot of fun. The image above is the bottom of the waterfall. It’s a good size waterfall for Nova Scotia and with all the rain we have been getting the last few days it sure didn’t disappoint! So that is one waterfall down from my 2019 Bucket List.

Point Prim Lighthouse

Tonight Eddie and I went over to my parents for supper. We cooked hot dogs, hamburgers and bratwurst around the firepit. We had to pack up a little early as it was starting to rain a little. Mom decided she wanted to go into Digby for ice cream at Recardo’s. Ever since I was a kid I have loved Farmer’s bubble gum ice cream and their cotton candy ice cream. Tonight I got a scoop of each. It’s not something we do often because it puts my blood sugar up. After this, we went for a drive and we ended up at Point Prim Lighthouse. It ended up not really raining, just a few drops so we deviceded to get out and walk around a little.

The current lighthouse is the 4th lighthouse built at Point Prim since 1804. It was built somewhere around 1964 as far as I can tell based on the information I looked up on it. The first lighthouse built in 1804 and lasted only 4 years before burning in 1808. The second lighthouse also burned down about 52 years after it was built in 1817. The third lighthouse was built in 1874 and was pushed over the cliff with a bulldozer in 1964. I’m not sure the story there. It doesn’t really say. Just old maybe. [...]  READ MORE
