Summer is almost officially over, but for me, fall started when I got back from my vacation a couple weeks ago. After a long vacation in Maine and the Maritimes (Atlantic Canada, mainly New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Cape Breton Island), taking more time away and actually unplugging!, being back is hitting me like a ton of bricks.  This morning was my first chance to look over and catalogue my photos from this most perfect summer road trip and before I bombard you with all of my upcoming art and costume projects and events and deep thoughts,  I will leave you with a few images of fun.

The Flower Pot Rocks, Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick

 

We were lucky to happen upon these amazing rocks in the Bay of Fundy.  At low tide, you can walk on the ocean floor and just hours later, the tide comes in 20-40 feet higher! And it is windy!

Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia

 

In Oxford, Nova Scotia, we were given a hot tip not to miss the tourist spot, Peggy’s Cove.  The flat rocks and spraying ocean did not disappoint and provided a stage for Frank’s high kicks.

The Cabot Trail, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia

The Cabot Trail, which surrounds Cape Breton Island, was one of the most beautiful drives I have ever taken.  It feels as though you are at the edge of the earth.

It was hard to make room for the puffy deer photo we found in Bangor, Maine, but we got creative and made it home with all of our treasures and vintage clothing.  Next up, photos of the Cabot Trail bog. I have a huge soft spot for bogs.  Seriously, they are the wellspring of my artistic inspiration.

Too much thrifting, Mini at capacity.

Goodbye summer, it was grand and picturesque!
