I had promised that I would share some photographs from my recent trip to the east coast of Canada, and here they are! We had a wonderful time on our cruise aboard the Brilliance of the Seas as it toured the various maritime ports of Canada. Our stops included Quebec City, Saguenay in Quebec, Halifax in Nova Scotia, Sydney in Nova Scotia, Corner Brook in Newfoundland, Charlottetown in Prince Edward Island and the French island of Saint Pierre. I hope you enjoy the photos!
This is one of my favourite restaurants in the city: 1640. It serves traditional French food as well as traditional Quebecois dishes.
This is a view of our cruise ship, Royal Caribbean's Brilliance of the Seas. It was such a beautiful ship, inside and out!
On Cape Brenton Island, in Nova Scotia, there are so many gorgeous vistas of the sea!
We came upon these two Highland cows munching along the roadside.
Futher south on the coast of Nova Scotia's mainland is Peggy's Cove - a beautiful and serene fishing town.
I loved these colourful chairs sitting on a dock in Peggy's Cove, backed by a large stack of metal lobster traps.
Lobster is big business in this part of the world and many small businesses sell them fresh from the sea, such as the one above! On the left is an old wooden lobster trap, which many fishermen no longer use because they do not last as long as their steel counterparts and are easily damaged in rough waters.
In Corner Brook, Newfoundland, these wooden lobster traps were not terribly active.
A lovely view along the coast of Newfoundland.
One of the main industries in Newfoundland is fishing. Evidence of this was everywhere!
From the balcony of our room on board on the cruise ship, there were many beautiful views of the sea. I loved the soft grey light on this day and the cold, dark waters below.
Here I am, taking it all in!
On one of our last days at sea, we were treated to a beautiful sunset.
