The story behind the image

Nova Scotia is a beautiful destination, especially in summer. When we were staying in Digby, we took our time to drive all the way down to Brier Island and only accessible by car when using two ferry trips along the way (which also means two ferry trips back to Digby.) The second ferry trip gets you to Westport, which I think is a matching name as it is really the most western town of Nova Scotia.

At the very end of Water Street (which is yet another excellent name) in Westport you will be greeted by this awesome scene: Peter Island Lighthouse as it stands on its own small island, surrounded by stunning nature. The feeling of being (almost) one with the sun, the water, and the wind is overwhelming.
