EESW - what great photos! Thanks so much for sharing that. I had a browse through your western gallery as well.
I have to agree with you, I LOVED Fortress Louisburg when we were there. I am very much looking forward to returned to Nova Scotia with my kids when they are old enough to appreciate it.
Thanks for those kind comments. I can't claim any credit for the photos - husband is the photographer. My job is to try and keep a record of all the photos he takes so we will know where they all were when he comes to label them - well that's the general idea....
The initial view of the Fortress across the bay sets the scene. It is amazing to think that only 20% of it has been rebuilt and it makes you realise just how impressive it must have been in its heyday.
Thanks for posting the pictures. They look very nice and I enjoyed looking through them.
What a treat to be browsing the Canada Forum and find your photo gallery. You are a consummate traveler! with your trip reports and these photos. Thank you for taking all the time it took to do them.
It is great to actually see LF through your photos. When we were there quite a few years ago, it was raining, windy with fog offshore. I actually enjoyed "being there" this time round.
I'm glad the pictures brought back memories. It wasn't the best of days when we went either. It started off dull and damp with mist hanging across the bay. The weather did improve a little during the day in so far as the damp stopped. At least being dull meant we didn't have problems with sunlight and shadows on the buildings. It is also amazing what the computer can do with pictures....who says the camera doesn't lie.
We are busy spending daughter's inheritance while we are still fit and able.
I have eventually written a trip report for the holiday in Nova Scotia.
