A Windy Afternoon on the Tantramar Marsh

I live in a small town near the border of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, two of Canada’s Atlantic Provinces. Living close to this border also means that I live very close to the famous Tantramar Marsh: home of Radio Canada International Shortwave Towers (due to be shut down soon because of Canada’s latest budget cuts); site of historic Fort Beausejour; and inspiration for poets such as Bliss Carmen and Douglas Lockhead, painter Alex Colville, photographer Thaddeus Holownia, and many other local and visiting artists. It is also now home to more than a dozen windmills, ready to capture and harness energy from the winds that usually blow in this area.

Here are a few pictures I took one recent windy afternoon:

Stay tuned for more pictures from the wonderful Tantramar Marsh in my next posts! If you’ve never visited this area of the country, summer is a wonderful time to make the trip. You’ll be sure to enjoy our famous ‘down-home’ hospitality!
