We had a great time this weekend visiting Polly’s Cove with some friends. They had been before but for all the years we’ve lived here this was our first visit. We will be back again!
The boys loved jumping across the huge rocks and finding hiding spots, of which there were many.
I too, loved the rocks, always love rocks (!) but I also enjoyed seeing the different kings of plants that manage to grow in such a rough terrain. It’s just beautiful!
Look at that quartz! Wish I could take it home. Finding hiding spots!
It took some work but the boys managed to place this big piece of quartz (size is deceiving for the weight of rocks!) up onto this nice flat spot. They wanted to bring it home but I was not trekking up over rocks and slopes of brush to bring it home…would have been pretty cool though…so we took a picture instead!
The trek back to the car. The lighthouse in the distance is Peggy’s Cove. Beautiful spot and great view!
A forrest of fiddleheads! The beach of Polly’s Cove. So many different types of plants growing in this rocky terrain. Love it! The boys found a caterpillar trying to cross the road on our way back to the car. We put it on a stick – no touching fuzzy caterpillars unless you know they are the non-stinging kind! – and put him/her back in the shrubs. I think this one liked seeing everything from a higher vantage point!
