Living on a postcard

There are spendid days during my travels around our region when the light is just right, when the perspective is perfect, when it feels like I'm living on a Bay of Fundy postcard. Today was one of those awesome days.

For locals on Campobello Island this is the every-day ho-hum view of their famed East Quoddy Light (a.k.a. Head Harbour Lightstation). It's quite possibly the most photographed lighthouse in the Bay of Fundy: visible from the island as well as from the ocean during trips with whale watch companies (which is when I took this photo).

I'm on Campobello Island for a few days filming one of our Bay of Fundy Travel Show episodes
and, if my first few hours here are any indication, there will be many more picture-postcard moments....!

Terri, you picked a gorgeous day today (Saturday), so there will no excuses for not getting more postcard shots. :)

If you find yourself in a boat, just pop over to Casco Bay Island (just off the East Quoddy Light) and I'll give you a tour.

You have got to just love our coast-line don't you? We marvel at the constant change, the height of the waves, the sound of a storm as it echoes from the cliffs.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful info & links!

Enjoy - it's wonderful over there.

What an awesome blog, Terri. I stumbled on it looking for some photos for my blog. My pix of Bay of Fundy are not digital, but are from the '60s. I was looking for a picture like of Hopewell Rocks with one of those tide clocks in it and then a picture when the tide was in. No luck so far except copyrighted and I don't steal. We had so much fun up your way as kids, but I have kind of a humorous story on my blog that mentions the Bay of Fundy. If you want to check it out, it's at prayed4.wordpress.com. I'm hoping to get my kids up there one day. I keep telling them about it. - Cathy
